and usually fever.


Keeping Up with Mom Tough Job

Mrs. Ursula Thompson, mother of
13 children and grandmother to 1,
is the onlv straight "A" second se-
mester student at the Canal Zone Col-
lege. Moreover, she is carrying 21
semester credits, which is an over-
load, but permitted in her case
because she has such good grades.
The average student carries 16 or
17 semester credits. In her first se-
mester, she was taken into Phi Theta
Kappa, a national honor society.
Mrs. Thompson, who is majoring
in Spanish, will be graduated from
Canal Zone College in June with a

For Poison Prevention

National Poison Prevention Week
is being observed March 14 to 20.
Nowhere is the adage: "an ounce of
prevention is worth a pound of cure"
more applicable than in the control of
accidental poisoning.
A survey several years ago by the
American Academy of Pediatrics
showed that half (51 percent) of all
children accidents were related to
One of the outgrowths of this
survey was the initiation in Chicago

Spelling Bee

Next Friday
The 10th annual spelling bee spon-
sored by the Caribbean College Club
will be held Friday, March 26, at 7
p.m. at Cristobal High School Audi-
torium. Pupils in grades 2 through 6
will participate.
The spelling bee is part of the
club's educational program and is
conducted with the cooperation of
the Canal Zone Schools Division.
Rules of the National Spelling Bee
held annually in Washington, D.C.,
have been adapted for the event.
Guest of honor for the evening
will be Mrs. Frances F. Samp-
sell, Supervisor of U.S. Elementary
Schools in the Canal Zone, to whom
the Spelling Bee will be dedicated.
Mrs. R. L. Brians and Mrs. Eliza-

of a pilot project called a poison con-
trol center. Purpose of the center was
to provide physicians with informa-
tion on the toxicity of various products
and recommended treatment when
those products were ingested. A clear-
inghouse was established in the U.S.
Pulllic Health Service to coordinate

activities. The clearinghouse feeds to
the network of poison control centers,
of which there are now over 500,
information on the toxicity of various
commercial products and the recom-
mended treatment when those pro-
ducts are ingested.
The poison control centers, in
turn, report to the clearinghouse in-
dicating the effectiveness of recom-
mended treatment procedures and at
the same time providing information
on these accidents: How they happen,
when they happen, and to whom.
A Poison Control Center was
established at Gorgas Hospital in
March 1959. It is under the super-
vision of Dr. Dan Hirschl. It is
manned 24 hours a day by a physi-
cian on the staff of Gorgas Hos-
pital. A reference library is at this
physician's finger tips so he can
provide accurate information on
what medical treatment is neces-
sary and the best way to go about

The Child Welfare Bureau investigation team questions Murray Burns and his nephew, Nick Burns, about their
"libertine way of living" in a scene from the Cristobal Little Theatre's forthcoming production, "A Thousand
Clowns." Pictured from left to right are John Carlisle (as Nick Burns), Mike Burns (seated) (as Albert Amundsen
of the CWB), Mary Bertovich (Sandra Markowitz) and Surse Pierpoint (Murray Burns). This heart-warming and
hilarious comedy runs March 26, 27, 28, and April 2, 3, and 4 at the Cristobal Little Theatre, France Field. For
reservations phone Grace Willians at Cristobal 3-1916. Curtain time is 8 p.m. each night.


By Eleanor Burnham

Late Call is a comedy of changing
British social conditions as shown in
this story by Angus Wilson. The
heroine, an unassuming woman who
has retired from managing a small
hotel, comes to live in one of the
newly developed English communi-
ties. Her belated discovery in this
new environment and at the age of
65 that she has a right to a life of
her own, provides the focal point of
the story. Angus Wilson is well-
known for his Anglo-Saxon Attitudes.
He is a graduate of Oxford and for
many years was on the staff of the
British Museum Library. Clifton
Fadiman says that Wilson has "one
of the liveliest minds now at work
in the field of the English novel."
P. S. Wilkinson is the 1965 Harper
Prize novel by C. D. B. Bryan, whose
greatest claim to fame is as the step-
son of John O'Hara. Bryan gives the
impression throughout this first novel
that he is writing autobiography-
with his use of the initials, P. S. for
his hero and C. D. B. for himself,
partly giving the tip-off. One reviewer
adds the comment that the "fictional
P. S. is a sort of youthful Marquand
who is not quite real." The book is
entertaining, however, and probably
will be successful.
I Resign You, Stallion is a novel by
Vinnie Williams, the author of Walk
Egypt, a 1960 best seller. This story
is told of rural Georgia and its hero
is the lame son of an exceedingly
rich and flamboyant father. The son's
skill as a horseman serves him for
some time as a compensation for his
other troubles, although at the end
of the story he is forced to face the

real significance of his relationship
with his father.
Canary Yellow is part mystery and
part romance with a dash of humor.
This latest story by Elizabeth Cadell
is about a London secretary on her
vacation in the Canary Islands. It
should be pleasing to anyone with
time to spare and a long hot afternoon
in the offing.
Alan Villiers, whose name is one
of the most famous in the sailing
fraternity, now has compiled a strictly
personal anthology which he calls
Of Ships and Men. This is really an
autobiography, but in an unusual
form. Instead of writing a strict
account of his life, Villiers has col-
lected passages from famous books
of the sea, accounts of heroism, of
marine disasters and stories of lei-
surely passages to distant places. To
these accounts he has added his per-
sonal comments and thus has related
them to his own long life as a sea-
farer. The beautiful pictures help to
make this book both personal and
realistic. This is a wonderful story
with which lovers of the sea will pass
some happy and nostalgic hours.

Foreign Service

Exam To Be Given

At Embassy May 1

A written examination for career
appointments to the Foreign Service
of the United States will be given at
the American Embassy in Panama
Saturday, May 1. Only citizens of the
United States are eligible.
Applications to take the examina-
tion are available from the personnel
office of the American Embassy. They
must he postmarked no later than
March 15.
The examination to be given at the
Embassy will coincide with similar
exams being given at 290 locations in
the United States and at U.S. diplo-
matic and consular posts around the
world. It will be used to select new
class 7 and 8 officers for the Depart-
ment of State and for the U.S. Infor-
i nation Agency.

when one seeks it not for himself, but
for others . with affection and
Affection and achievement Alton
Ochsner has . full measure, abun-
dunt, flowing over.

Dr. Alton Ochsner is to smoking
as the Pope is to sin.
Where there's smoking there's lung
cancer, according to Dr. Ochsner.
"I am terribly concerned over the
increased incidence of lung cancer,"
Dr. Ochsner said. "Thirty-five years
ago it was almost non-existent. Now
it is one of the most frequent of all
cancers. It is increasing at a greater
rate than any other cancer, and it is
because of cigarette smoking."
For the past week New Orleans'
leading citizen has visited with us.
I was looking for some way to sum
up his activities and the help he has
given physician in Panama.
How about this as summary?
When the Royal College of Sur-
geons in Ireland conferred Honorary
Fellowship on Dr. Alton Ochsner in
1961 his sponsor described him as:
"Of profound diligence, of uncanny
originality of mind, of manual dex-
terity given to few, he nearly fulfills
the late Lord Moynihan's oft-quoted
triad of requisites for the perfect sur-
geon . 'The heart of a lion, the
eye of an eagle, the hands of a lady.'
Constant searcher after truth, master
technician, confidant of his colleagues,
beloved physician to his patients,
prized and honored citizen .."
Pity the good doctor not that he
seems to work most of the time. One
of his famous addresses expresses his
philosophy: "The Joy of Working."
In this address (and he lives it) Dr.
Ochsner spells out the ingredients for
happiness: good health, leisure, affec-
tion, accomplishments.
Not at all surprising to me, he soft
pedals leisure and health. "Leisure is
desirable only if used profitably," he
says. "And poor health can be com-
pensated for by increased affection or
by achievements."
He has frequently quoted Sir
William Osler and paraphrased him.
"One master word, though little,
looms large. It opens every portal;
transmits the base metal of humanity
into gold; makes the stupid, bright;
the brilliant, steady. With it all things
are possible. The word is 'Work'."
All work and no play really
wouldn't make Alton Ochsner a "dull
boy," but he is not all work. In 1948
he was Rex, King of the Mardi Gras
Carnival. That his adopted city
bestowed this supreme social honor
on a South Dakota Yankee was a
remarkable tribute.
He enjoys occasions such as
Christmas or Thanksgiving when his
whole family gets together: 3 sons,
1 daughter and 15 (or is it more by
now?) grandchildren.
I take a major lesson from our
visitor far surpassing his skill in sur-
gery. I think he shows us personal
happiness comes only, in reality,

Muy raras veces una persona sin
experiencia se aventura a utilizar un
soplete de oxi-acetileno. Ha habido
casos en que los "novicios" han esca-
pado sin lesiones, pero otros, menos
afortunados, han pagado un alto pre-
cio por manejar el soplete, que tiene
sus peligros propios para el que ignore
las precauciones necesarias.
Dado que el soplete genera much
calor, porque usa gases combustibles,
embotellados a presi6n, todas las pre-
cauciones que se toman son pocas.
Hasta los maestros soldadores experi-

Seguin las circunstancias y el sitio de
trabajo, el soldador procede a un estu-

de trabajo antes de iniciar su labor.

A tal efecto, orden6 a un ayudante
que montara guardia con un extintor

ra una vilvula para que se vaciara el
contenido de las tuberias. El soldador
procedi6 a perforar uno de los tubos.
Al advertir que todavia quedaba pe-

Acto seguido, abri6 s61o la vilvula de
oxigeno para expulsar con el chorro a
presi6n el resto del combustible en la
tuberia. Al reiniciar las operaciones
con el soplete encendido las tuberias
estallaron como verdaderas bombas.

En la semana del 14 al 20 de marzo
se observa la Semana Nacional de
Prevenci6n de Envenenamientos. No
encontramos situaci6n mas propicia
para recorder aquel refrAn que dice:
"MAs vale prevenir que lamentar,"
en este period de control del enve-
nenamiento accidental.
Hace algunos afios, la Academia
Americana de Pediatria llev6 a cabo
una investigaci6n entire sus miembros
con el prop6sito de determinar qu6
tipo de accidents infantiles tratados
por ellos en la prActica de su profe-
si6n era el mAs frecuente. Los resul-
tados de la investigaci6n demostraron
que mis de la mitad (51 por ciento)
de los accidents eran relatives a
Como uno de los subproductos de
esta investigaci6n se inici6 en Chi-
cago un proyecto pilot llamado cen-
tro de control de envenenamientos. El
prop6sito de 6ste era el de proveer a
los m6dicos con informaci6n relative
a la toxicidad de los products y el
tratamiento adecuado en caso de in-
gerirse. Evidentemente, ningdin me-
dico podia por si solo mantener una
list de todo aquel product que pu-
diese ser ingerido, especialmente por
La idea de un centro de control de
envenenamientos y su potential ser-
vicio a la comunidad se esparci6 por
el pais con tal rapidez que se hizo
obvia la necesidad esencial de coor-
dinaci6n para estos servicios. Esto
produjo la creaci6n de un centro de
diseminaci6n en el Servicio de Salu-
bridad Publica de los Estados Uni-
dos. Las funciones de este centro de
diseminaci6n son las de mantener in-
formada a la red de centres de con-
trol de envenenamientos, que son mis
de 500, con indicaciones acerca de la
toxicidad de los diferentes products
comerciales y el tratamiento adecua-
do en caso de ingerirse.
Los centres de control de envene-
namientos a su vez reportan al centro
de diseminaci6n sobre la efectividad
del tratamiento recomendado en los
diferentes casos, y ademAs proven
detalles sobre dichos accidents:

En marzo de 1959 se estable-
ci6 en el Hospital Gorgas un
centro de control de envenena-
mientos, bajo la direcci6n del
Dr. Dan Hirschl. Este centro
funciona las 24 horas del dia,
en las que actia un m6dico del

Hospital Gorgas. Este cuenta
con los servicios de una biblio-
teca de referencia de modo que
pueda dar con precision instruc-
ciones acerca del tipo de trata-
miento y la manera de Ilevarlo
a cabo.
Durante los 6 afios que tiene de
estar operando el centro de preven-
ci6n de envenenamientos de la Zona
del Canal se han recibido mis de
900 Ilamadas telef6nicas, ya de per-
sonal m6dico o de civiles en busca
de ayuda.
La 'inica vacuna possible para ca-
sos de envenenamientos accidental es
la educaci6n.
Antes que nada, Ilame al Centro
de Control de Envenenamientos (Bal-
boa 2600) e informed al medico que
contest todo lo que sepa sobre el
accident y dele el nombre del pro-
ducto. Si el medico del control de
envenenamientos le aconseja dirigirse
a su hospital o dispensario, lleve con-
sigo el envase del product ingerido.
(Casi siempre la etiqueta da indica-
ciones de primeros auxilios.)
Si un nifio ha ingerido alguna sus-
tancia venenosa-o used asi lo cree-
debe hacbrsele vomitar. La mejor
manera de hacerlo es colocando al
niiio boca abajo, de modo que su ca-
beza este mis baja que sus caderas
e introduciendo su dedo al fondo de
su boca. Es aconsejable protegerse el
dedo con alguna gaza o trapo, puesto
que una mordida de un nifio puede
ser bastante seria.
No se debe inducir el v6mito si el
product ingerido contiene destilados
del petr6leo (comunes en lustre para
muebles, ceras y fluido para encen-
dedores); tampoco debe inducirse el
v6mito si el product ingerido es una
sustancia corrosiva (limpiadores de
desagiies, etc.). Y por supuesto, si el
nifio estA inconsciente o tiene con-
vulsiones debe impedirse a toda costa
el inducirle a vomitar.

En el astillero de la Divisi6n Industrial de Mount Hope, de la Direcci6n de
Marina, se complete recientemente otro trabajo del tipo que la estA haciendo
bien conocida: la reparacibn de helices a los barcos sin necesidad de utilizar
un dique seco. El Olympic Star estaba en Crist6bal cuando se le cay6 la
tuerca reten de la helice, hacienda que la helice fuera a dar contra el tim6n
de la manera que se ilustra en la foto. El barco Olympic Star, de bandera
liberiana, de propiedad del magnate naviero griego Onassis, mide 625 pies
de largo y tiene capacidad para transporter 250,000 barriles de products
derivados del petr6leo. El trabajo fue el tercero de esta clase realizado hasta
ahora en el present afio por la Divisi6n Industrial. El barco es cargado de
lastre en la proa para que, de esta manera, la popa emerja del agua, y no
permit la entrada de esta al interior del buque a trav6s del Arbol de la hblice.
