Power generation records
are being broken right and left
by the Panama Canal Elec-
trical Division these days.
A peak load of 64,400 kilo-
watts. the highest on record so
far. was recorded oi December
9 while on December 23. the.
total gross amount of electric
current generated during a 24-
hour period amounted to
1,261,400.
Both the record peak load
and the record 24-hour gross
figures reflect the increas-
ing demand for electric
power during the past few
years and are not neces-
sarily the result of all those
Christmas lights which have
been illuminating C a n a I
Zone residential sections
during the past few weeks.
The top peak load for fiscal


year 1963 was 59,200 kilowatts
and the peak for fiscal year
1962 was 53,900, both record
breakers.
The million mark for the
amount of electric current
generated during a 24-hour
period was passed for the first
time September 10, 1962. Since
that time. the 24-hour gross has
not often fallen .below that
figure.
The current generated at pre-
sent comes from the hydroelec-
tric stations at Madden Dam
and Gatun with a supplementa-
ry supply being furnished by
the two oil-fired gas turbo-
generators installed at Miraflo-
res sub-station last year and
seven diesel engine driven
generators at Agua Clara and
Cocoli.
These generators are put into

full operation during the dry
season when the Gatun Hydro-
electric station operation must
be curtailed because of the
need for water conservation.
The steady increase in
demand for electric power
in the Canal Zone is at-
tributed to increase in Ca-
nal traffic as well as an
increase in use of home
and commercial air condi-
tioning and other electrical
appliances and equipment.
In order to increase the
power generation potential of
the Canal Zone even further,
plans have been made for the
purchase and installation of a
steam generating unit at Mira-
flores.
The new steam generating
unit is to be used in conjufc-
tion with the new gas turbine
generators and will add 25,000
kilowatts to the power genera-
tion potential when it is put
into operation. The target date
for this new unit is within the
next two years.


To Alaska

Via Canal

The Panama Canal will be
part of the route for delivery
of a new ferry, the Tustumena,
to the site of Alaska. The ves-
sel was built in Sturgeon Bay,
Wis., and was scheduled to be
launched there Dec. 14. In June
it will begin the 10,000 mile
trip to Seattle, Wash., via the
St. Lawrence Seawa y, the
Atlantic Coast, the Gulf of
Mexico, through the Canal, and
up the West Coast. The journey
is expected to take four to six
weeks.

CAR INSPECTION

NOW UNDER WA Y


Annual inspections of private-
ly-owned automobiles licensed
in the Canal Zone started yes-
terday at the Motor Transpor-
tation Division garages in An-
-con and Cristobal.
Hours for these .inspections
are continuous from 8 a.m.
until 5 p.m. including the
lunch hour during the re-
gular work week of Monday
through Friday.
Owner of private vehicles re-
gistered in the Zone are re-
minded that when they bring
their cars for inspection they
must have in their possession a
copy of their vehicle registra-
tion -for the year 1964.
Inspection will include brakes,
lighting system, windows and
windshields, turn indicators,
horns, alignment of wheels,
tires and other operating parts
of the car which affect the
safety of driving.
After each vehicle passes ins-
pection, its owner will receive
an inspection sticker which will
cost 75 cents.
The hours chosen for inspec-
tion were established in order
to permit car owners who work
regular office hours, as well
as those who work on a shift
basis, to have their vehicles
inspected outside of their nor-
mal work periods.
Although car owners will have'
until the end of February to
get their cars inspected, they
have been urged by the Motor
Transportation to get this an-
nual safety check attended to


promptly. Early comers wil
avoid the last minute rush.


Firefighters


Gain $400


early Raise

SA raise in pay which wil
bring firefighters and fire-
fighter driver-operators about
$400 yearly will go into effect
January 5.
The revision in the rates Ao
pay for these positions was an-
nounced by the Canal Zone
Civilian Personnel Policy Coor- .
dinating Board.
The new pay scale is related
to the firefighter grade struc-
ture of the District of Colum-
bia, but the pay schedule re-
mains somewhat less than that
of the District.
Future adjustments in the
pay schedule for firefighters.
and firefighter driver-operators
on the Canal Zone are to be
made on the basis of changes
in rates of pay for the District
of Columbia firefighters.
Firefighter officers rates are
now adjusted on that basis.
The raises will show up in
the first checks covering the
first full pay period after tho
effective date of January 5.

GERARD SCHEAR


Never Underrate an Abacus



In a Budget Man's Fingers


Gerard Schear is described
as the tight-fisted budget of-
fieer of the, Administrative
Service Division, but he re-
leases his grip when he goes
to work on his abacus in an
effort to make ends meet in
the current budget squeeze
affecting all Panama Canal
units.
Schear, a bachelor, was born
in Elizabeth, N. J., and grew
up there. He served during
World War II in the Pacific
with the Army. After a short
period of civilian life, he re-
entered military service in the
Air Force ,serving at France
Field and Howard Air Force
Base.
Schear acquired his abacus,
.training on a visit to Japan
several years ago. He plans to
return to Tokyo next summer
to attend Sophia University, a
50-year old Jesuit College with
5,50& students, where he has
signed up for four courses, one
of which is Elementary Japa-
nese.
Among other things, he says,
he hopes to find the pages that
were apparently left out of the
instruction manual for the
abacus.
Gerry has as his primary
hobby the exciting pasttime
of travel. He has been around
the world twice and spent three
months in Europe in 1957. Other
hobbies include photography
(he hopes to set up his own
darkroom soon) and politics


Cheer Afloat

At Pedro Miguel

For Deckhands

A bit of extra Christmas
cheer floated about at Pedro
Miguel last week for about 300
deckhands. :
A group of launch operators
(for the launches Sailfish and
Ray), seamen, clerks, janitors
and clean-up men gathered
funds among themselves and
supplied free coffee, sodas and
cupcakes for the deckhands
that passed through Pedro Mi-
guel on December 24, 25 and
26.
The Pedro Miguel Co-opera-
tive Christmas Savings Group
also contributed funds to the
Working Mens' Softball League,
which will open up Monday,
January 6, at Paraiso.

125 Courses

(Continued From Page 1)
9:15 a.m. Saturday, Additional
registration hours are schedul-
ed Jan. 6-11, 13-18, and 20-25
as follows:
Monday-Thursday, 7:15-4:40
and 6:45-7:45.
Friday, 7:15-4:15.
Saturday, 8:15-9:15 a.m.
Students should not schedule
themselves to be in two places
at the same time. Many third
year courses are scheduledonly
in the late afternoon and
evening; this cannot be helped
because 1) many of the enrol-
lees are part-time students with
full-time day jobs, 2) there are
not enough full-time day stu-
dents to justify day sections,
and/or 3) the specialized per-
sonnel needed to teach such
advanced classes are only
available after normal working
hours.
Dramatics, athletics, music,
carnival and ot h e r student
activities take place in the late
afternoon and/or e venin g;
freshmen and sophomores tak-
ing part in these activities must
not elect classes which will
conflict. The student should
decide well in advance his
spring activity schedule and
then fit his academic schedule
to it not just the hours of
performance but also the hours
of practice are involved.
While class periods for cour-
ses are set for the semester
and will not be changed except
for unusual emergency (and
almost never from day to even-
ing or evening to day), it is not
possible to schedule all the
three-hour final semester ex-
amination at the time the class
meets or even to schedule the
examinations for day courses
during the day nor for evening
courses during the evenings.
Consequently the student must
understand that during the
week of May 25-28 he may have
to come for an examination at
such a time that he must take
off from work. This will be
kept to a minimum consistent
with proper operation of the
overall schedule,

MEREDITH MARKUN Chairman of the Safety Committee of Diablo Junior High School, presents
a ribbon safety award to Debbie MacAndrews, who as home room representative, accepted the
award on behalf of her classmates in home room No. 209. This home room was the winner of
a recent safety contest for suggestions for improving the safety with which the popular school
game of "pencils" could be played. The rules suggested by the students in home room 209 were
adopted by all students in the school.

MANUEL A. SMITH, an em-
ployee of 29 years with the Ca-
nal, holds the official title of
Meterological Technician in the
Hydrographic Branch. He has
been with his present unit since
1953. Duties as Meterological
Technician include taking morn-
ing observatoins of weather and
making daily reports from in-
formtion from outlying sta-
tions, using such information
as barometer readings, a i r
temperature, wind speed and
direction, humidity and weather
conditions. He must also main-
tain the delicate equipment
found at the Balboa Heights
station at the Administration
Building and at other stations.
Smith enjoys repairing radios
and television sets, a hobby he
has pursued since 1919. Smith,
his wife, Aura, and their son,
Richard, a senior at Balboa
High School, live in Ancon.
They have an older daughter
who is married and living in
the States.


ENGINEERING TECHNICIAN
HYDRAULIC is the official
title of Elmer Kanz, a native
of Waitsburg, Washington. Kanz
has been with the Hydrographic
Branch since he began service
with the Zone in December of
1945. Among his duties are the
control of the lakes during the
flood season, working up runoff
data from Gatun Lake and
Madden Dam, and making
hydrographic studies. Active in
Masonic work, Kanz lives in
Los Rios with his wife, Alice,
and their 31-month old son, Da-
vid. Kanz says he used to like
to make jewelry in his spare
time as a hobby, but found he
had to quit when people would
say: "I'd like this done by
Thursday."


Canal Women

In When's Who

At least two Canal employees
are included in the third edi-
tion of Who's'Who of American
Women which has recently
arrived on the Isthmus.
The volume published by the
long established A. N. Marquis
Company which also brings
out the reference volume Who's
Who In America is described
as a biographical dictionary of
notable living American
women.
The listings are made alpha-
betically, and not by geographic
areas, but a quick check shows
the names of Dr. Dorothy Moo-
dy, Dean of Women and head
of the English Department at
the Canal Zone College, and
Eleanor D. Burnham. Librarian-
Curator at the Canal Zone
Library-Museum.
Dr. Moody received her A.

of Tulane University, New Or-
leans, and a graduate library
degree from the Columbia
University School of Library
Science in New York.
In announcing the new edi-
tion, the publishers stressed
that achievement and occupa-
tional position as one of the
major criteria for eligibility.
The volume will soon be
available for reference at the
Canal Zone Library.

Veteran Preference Outlined


Anatomy of a Scandal is by
Irving, Hall and Wallingford,
the trio of London newspaper
wien who have written a timely
report on the Profumo affair.
This book is remarkably well-
Aone when one considers the
speed with which the writing
must have been accomplished.
The Dangerous Islands is a
pew novel by Ann Bridges. Ju-
lia Probyn, her cousin Colin,
and Mrs. Hathaway are back
again in an exciting adventure
story. While yachting in the
Hebridean Islands, Julia and
Colin stumble upon a camou-
flaged satellite tracking station.
Colonel Philip Jamison of the
Secret Service leads an in.esti-
gation which becomes a hide-
and-seek adventure beyond the
Hebrides, through Ireland's
County Mayo, to the Scilly
Isles. With her customary skill,
Miss Bridges guides her rea-
lers through espionage, black-
mail, a love affair, suspense,
the result of which is as unex-
pected as it is dramatic.
The Appeasers by Martin Gil.
beert and Richard Gott covers the
period in Great Britain from
iBitler's rise to power to Cham-
berlain's downfall. The authors
are both Englishmen who are
young enough to be able to re-
port on the period with objectiv-
ity but who approach it with
sensitivity and an understanding
of the underlying reasons which
caused this crisis in the affair


of their country and which subse-
quently culminated in World
War II.
They Fought Alone by John
Keats is subtitled as "a true
story of a modern American
hero." It tells of a mining en-
gineer following the fall of the
Philippines in May 1942. Keats
spent four years writing this ac-
count which depicts in novel form
the story of a very brave man,
real people and stirring events in
the precise terms of an historian.

Death ,of a Painted Lady is
a Random House mystery by
Brian Cleeve. The scene is laid
in the shop of a Dublin art
dealer and the characters are
critics, agents, painters, and a
dead model-around whom the
novel revolves. This is an ex-
citing mystery and one which\
who-dun-it fans cannot afford
to miss.
How To Grow Up In One
Piece is a real delight by Ro-
bert Paul Smith, the author of
"Where Did You Go?" "Out."
"What Did You Do?" "Noth-
ing." This latest book is char-
mingly written in blank verse,
is amusing and in addition has
a lot of good common sense
hidden away beneath its frivo-
lity. The illustrations by Milton
Glasser are adapted from pic-
tures in old catalogs and are
nearly as entertaining as the
verse. No one should miss this
cheering little book.


Job Retention Preference. Pref-
erence employees have certain ad-
vantages over nonpreference em-
ployees in retaining their assigned
jobs. An agency must use re-
duction-in-force procedures based
in part on preference, whenever
contemporary employees are re-
leased from the rolls, furloughed
for more than 30 days, or re-
duced in grade for such reasons
as lack of work or funds and re-
organization.
In such cases, preference em-
ployees who have satisfactory or
better performance ratings can-
not be displaced or separated
from the rolls until competing
nonpreference employees serving
under the same or similar kinds
of appointments have been dis-
placed or separated.
Competition in job retention is
determined on the basis of em-
ployees who can be shifted around
in their daily work. Each em-
ployee is in direct competition
with all other employees engaged
in similar work, in the same pay
grade, and serving under similar
conditions. Among competing em-
ployees, the order of separation
is determined by type of appoint-
ment, veteran preference, length
of service, and efficiency (per-
formance) ratings.
Veteran-preference rights in a
reduction in force are identical
for 5- and 10-point veterans.
Other Preference Benefits. All
physical requirements are waived
for veterans found physically able
to discharge the duties of the


position without danger to them-
selves or to others.
In addition, veterans are not
subject to members-of-family re-
strictions or apportionment rules.
For other than veterans, these
restrictions prohibit the appoint-
ment of any person to a job in
the competitive civil service when
two or more members of his fam-
ily are already serving under pro-
bational or permanent appoint-
ments in the competitive civil
service.
Likewise, except for veterans,
appointments to jobs in agencies'
headquarters offices located in
the Washington, D. C., metropol-
itan area must be within the
apportionment limits set for the
States, territories, and the District
of Columbia upon the basis of
population.
In summary, veteran preference
is not a guarantee of getting or
holding a Government job. It is
not a vested right to a Govern-
ment job for life or as long as the
veteran desires to work.
It :is a uniform system for as-
sisting veterans in obtaining and
retaining Federal employment for
which they are qualified. The
basic ideas behind veteran pre-
ference are to:
1. Recognize the economic loss
suffered by the citizens who have
served their country in uniform.
2. Restore veterans to a favor-
able.competitive position for Gov-
ernment employment.
3. Recognize that a larger ob-
ligation is owed to disabled vet-
erans.

LA DEMAND IMPLICA AUMENTO



EN PRODUCTION DE ENERGIA



ELECTRIC EN LA ZONA DEL CANAL


La Division de Electricidad del Canal de Panama report nuevas
marcas en la generaci6n de energia. Hasta ahora la carga mas ele-
vada ha sido de 64.400 kllovatios, registrada el 9 de diciembre en
tanto que el dia 23 la suma bruta total de corriente electrica gene-
rada en un period de 24 horas subi6 a 1,261.400 kilovatios.


Tanto la marca de carga ma-
xima registrada cuanto la de
energia generada en 24 horas,
reflejan la creciente demand
que pesa sobre la energia electri-
ca y que aumenta con el pasar
de los aiios, irrespecitvamente de
la cuantia de lucecillas que bri-
Ilan por tod ,la Zona del Canal
durante la Navidad.
La carga maxima en el afo
fiscal de 1963 fue de 49.200
kv en tanto que el afio preo
cedente habia side de 53.900.
La marca de mis de un mi-
116n de kilovatios generados
en un period de 24 horas


fue registrada por primera
vex el 10 de septiembre de
1962; desde entonces no ha
bajado de esa cifra.
La corriente actualmente se ge-
nera en las estaciones hidroelec-
tricas de la Represa de.Madden.
y de Gatun, con el suministro
suplementario de dos turbogene-
radores de combustible instala-
dos en Miraflores el afio pasado
y siete generadores de diesel en
Agua Clara y Cocoli. Estos ge-
neradores entran a operar a ple-
na capacidad en la estaci6n se-
ca, cuando la plant hidroelectri-
ca de Gatin tiene que ser restrin-


gida a fin de ahorrar agua.
La creciente demand de elee.
tricidad. en la-Zona del- Canal es
atribuida a dos razones, el au-
mento del trAnsito por el Canal y
el uso dom6stico y com lr de.
aparatos de aire refrigeeiio y
otros artefactos el6ecricos case-
ros.
A fin de incrementar la capaci-
dad productive de energia elec.
trica en la Zona del Canal se
proyecta adquirir e instalar en
Miraflores un generador operado
a vapor.
El generador a. vapor se usarh
conjuntamente con la nueva tur.
bina de gas y ello aumentarA en
25.000 kilovatios la capacidad ge.
neradora. Estas dos nuevas unida-
des quedarian instaladas en el
plazo de los pr6ximos dos afios.

REDUCIRAN PRIMAS EN EL


SEGURO DE VIDA DE GRUPO

El cuerpo de gobernantes de la Junta Directiva de Segu-
ros de la Zona del Canal esta ultimando los arreglos pertinentes
para reducir las primas de seguro de vida en grupo para los
empleados no norte-americanos de las entidades federales de la
Zona del Canal.
El convenio con la United of Omaha fij6 la prima en 27%
centavos por period de pago bi-semanal por cada mil d6lares;
sin embargo este plan ha merecido tal acogida que se hace
factible reducir un poquito la prima.
En consecuencia, se tiene proyectada la reducci6n de la
prima a 25 centavos per cada mil, a partir del primero de
marzo entrant.
Se ha anunciado igualmente un "Periodo Abierto" que se
extender del primero de marzo al primero de abril del ano
en curso. Durante ese period se aceptaran nuevos enrolamien-
tos y cambios en la opci6n sin necesidad de ex6men m6dico.

MODERN SALON DE ACTOS "En el Principio Fue el Verbo"


LIST Y BIEN EQUIPADO


Un modern sal6n de actos ha
quedado enteramente instalado,
con todo lo indispensable, donde
antes funclonase el despacho nE-
mero 10, en el s6tano del Edifi-
cio de Adminlstraci6n en Balboa
Heights.
El sal6n cuenta con aparejos
audio-visuales para proyecciones
cinematograficas o de diapositivos
que sirvan para ilustrar conferen-
cias o disertaciones t6cnicas, cut-
turales o educativas.
Entre las innovaciones instala-
das durante el reacondicionamien-
to del local hay una tarima pa-
ra el Orador con controls para
la operaci6n de equipo audio-vi-
sual; proyector de sonido de 16
milimetros y proyector de diapo-
sitivos de 35 milimetros; aparato
para proyeccion detrds de la pan-
talla; pizarrones; caballetes y pol-
tronas muy c6modas que sientan
a 40 personas.


Adicionalmente a lo que alli
hay instalado en forma perma-
nente se pueden obtener otras
cosas necesarlas acudiendo a la
secci6n de grificas de la Dlvisi6n
de Servicios Administrativos.
Entre lo obtenible hay SLIDES
(diapositivos) ilustraciones y vis-
tas a color o blanquinegro; equi-
po para proyecci6n automatic
con o sin sonido (SelecfrovisiBn),
proyectores de cine; cintas mag-
netof6nicas y otro equipo de so-
nido.
El sal6n tiene por objeto servir
para pliticas o BRIEFINGS que
requieren proyecci6n, pero pue-
de utilizarse tambien en reunio-
nes oficiales o semi-oficiales de
organizaciones de servicio pibli-
co. Para reservaciones comuni-
carse con el Jefe de la Oflcina de
Informaci6n, tel6fono 2-1880.


Entre las personas que atendie-
ron una series de plAticas sobre
normas y procedimientos en el
manejo de personal, dictadas en
1962, hubo various ejecutivos que
vinieron de la costa atlantica.
Impresionados con lo q' oyesen
y aprendieran, los ejecutivos, sin
embargo, pudieron hallar dispa-
ridad notoria entire la eficacia
de los oradores en sus diserta-
clones.
Cavilando sobre el asuntb, los
ejecutivos del atlAntico pronto
decidieron que seria de gran
provecho mejorar su propia ca-
pacidad de exposici6n, a fin de
powder presenter con mayor efi-
cacia las nuevas t6cnicas y pro-
cedimientos a sus propios subal-
ternos. Para ello precisaba ma-
yor prActica en hablar en p6bli-
co.


Encabezado por E. B. O'Brien
Superintendent de la Divisi6n de
Terminales, el grupo se organize
bajo el nombre de Crist6bal
Toastmasters' Club.
Tanto O'Brien como D.R. Bray-
ton, gerente de la Divisi6n de
Ferrocarriles han tomado cursos
de oratoria.
Presidido por O'Brien el Club
No. 2640-U fue registrado en la
organizaci6n national de Toast-
masters; su treintena de miem-
bros se reunen una vez al mes
para cenar juntos. Integran el
grupo hombres de negocio de
Col6n y agents de empresas
navieras ademAs de los emplea-
dos de agencies federales en la
costa atlAntica.
Durante las sesiones, que pre-
side Samuel Y. Frankel, (aboga-


do colonense que es el actual
president) 6ste da la palabra a
una media docena de socios pa-
ra que hablen por unos 5 minu-
tos sobre tema que sefiala la
Mesa, y que no es conocido por
el orador sino al moment de
asignArsele. (Usualmente se tra-
ta de asuntos de actualidad).
Despues de esto siguen los dis-
cursos asignados de antemano
y seguidamente se comenta y
critical la t6cnica de los distin-
tos oradores; un miembro hace
despues un resume de la reu-
ni6n y-sus incidents, ofreciendo
comentarios y sugerencias.
Las reuniones se inician a las
7 de la noche y terminan exac-
tamente a las 9, aun cuando al-
guien estuviere en uso de la pa-
labra.


PROTEASE CATEDRAS, A BORDO,

A TIEMPO! OFRECEN ATRACCION


Los automovilistas que pro-
yectasen viajar por el istmo
centro-americano durante la
present 6poca, 6 en la esta-
ci6n seca que se aproxima, de-
berian antes consultar con la
empresa aseguradora para cer-
ciorarse de que su p6liza cu-
bre los riesgos en ese territo-
rio.
Esto es aconsejable a la luz
de la experiencia reciente de
un empleado del Canal de Pa-
nama quien supo demasiado
tardiamente que su p6liza no
cubria riesgos fuera del Istmo
de Panama.
Muchas son las p6lizas expe-
didas localmente que tienen a-
pdblica de Panama, Canada,
p6blca de Panama, Canada,
la Zona del Canal, los Estados
Unidos, sus posesiones y te-
rritorios.
Lo mas .probable es que si
no estuviere cubierto fuera de
los lugares citados en el pi-
rrafo precedent mediante el
pago de una pequefia prima a-
dicional quedaria usted prote-
gido durante su viaje por Cen-
tro America y ain M6xico.
Esa protecci6n puede exten-
derse por 30, 60 o 90 dias, se-
gdn a usted le convenga.

ELIGEN SU

DIRECTIVE

El Club Cooperativo de Em-
pleados no-norteamericanos de
las Escuelas del Atlantico esco-
gi6 su nueva directive que ha
quedado constituida asi:
President: Ezrah E. Cargill
Secretario: Victor H. Archbold
Tesorero: Arnold Best
Vocal: Mickell Williams


Una de las principles ocupa-
clones magisteriales durante la
temporada de vacaciones es la
de realizar excursions, y es en
atenci6n a ello que la empresa
de viajes Hilton Tours ha ideado
ofrecer cursos colegiales duran-
te algunas excursions; los cr&-
ditos obtenidos tienen validez en
algunas universidades.
Los cursos ofrecidos abordo
son dictados por miembros de fa-
cultades de universidades califor-
nianas, ya que esos viajes se ini-
cian en la costa. occidental de
Estados Unidos con destiny a
Europa, via el Canal de Pana-
mA. Las cAtedras flotantes to-
man de una a tres horas dia-
rias.


Estos cursos a bordo tienen do-
ble atractivo; primero, la ex-
periencia obtenida capacity a los
maestros para merecer aumento
salarial; estimula el viajar, ya
que se hace sin sacrificar los es-
tudios acad6micos que se reali-
zan lo mismo que si fuesen a la
universidad; segundo, los gastos
de viaje son deducibles del im-
puesto sobre la renta en calidad
de gastos encaminados al mejo-
ramiento professional.
Dependiendo del exito que las
novedosas excursions de "uni-
versidad viajante" obtengan es-
te afio, el aio entrante se afa-
dirian otras excursions del mis-
mo tipo pero rumbo al Oriente o
circumnavegando el globo.

REGLAS PARA-EL


JUEGO I
Solia haber el juego de las ca-
nicas (o bolas) consistent en dar-
le a bolitas de vidrio con otras
que se lanzaban seguidamente pa-
ra ver quien acertaba a enchufar
en el hoyo abierto en tierra.
Pero ahora surge el juego de
"lapices" en que pueden partici-
par dos, tres o mas competido-
res. Este iiltimo es un partido
parecido al de "pics" taquitos de
palo que se "bateaban" con otro
palito con el que se les golpea-
ba.,
El modern juego escolar con-
siste en enterrar un lapiz y pro-
curar darle con otro lapiz, con
el que se le pega al levantarse
al aire para lanzarlo cuan lejos
se pueda.
El primer jugador entonces co-
rre a recoger su lipiz y trata de
enterrarlo en el mismo sitio 3
veces, antes de que el segundo
jugador pueda hacer lo propio
con el suyo. El que primero logra
hacerlo, gana el partido,
Lanzar esos lapices al viento,
crea cierta confusion no exenta


)E LAPIZ
de peligro para el viandante quien
queda expuesto a que lo golpee
en un ojo, por ejemplo.
De suerte que la escuela Inter-
media de Diablo Heights ha co-
misionado a una Junta de los
propios estudiantes para que
adopted medidas calculadas a evi-
tar percances de esa naturaleza.
Meredith Markum preside la
Junta, y se dispuso que las 36
aulas sometiesen sugerencias ein-
caminadas a establecer reglas que
ofreciesen seguridad o protec-
ci6n en el juego de lapices. El
aula 209, bajo la supervision de
la sefiorita Mildred McMahon, su-
giri6 la mejor idea: s6lo se per-
mitirAn lApices sin filo; despues
de que se batee uno, debe ser
Ilevado al "circulo", antes de en-
terrarse; un mAximo de 4 con-
tendientps participarAn en cada
partido; estos quedaran limitados
a ciertas Areas, sobre las que se
ejercerA vigilancia; las contra-
venciones serAn castigadas eon
"detenci6n" en lugar ain por fi-
jar.
