Repair Work

Pushed on

2 Destroyers
Work has been in progress here
since last Wednesday, on a 'round-
the-clock schedule, on permanent
repairs to two destroyers damaged
in a collision off the Florida coast
They are the U.S.S. Hawkins,
which sustained damage to the bow,
and the U.S.S. Vesole, with stern
damage. The work is being done at
the Marine Bureau's Industrial Divi-
sion facility at Mount Hope. The
collision occurred during night
maneuvers of the squadron (eight
ships) of U.S. Navy vessels.
The repair work is being carried
on with the maximum force that can
be utilized on the job, Marine Direc-
tor Capt. M. J. Prince, USN, said.
Repairs are scheduled for completion

Industrial Division

Work Is Commended
The Panama Canal's Industrial
Division has shared with the Office
of the Industrial Manager, 15th
Naval District, a tip of the hat from
Capt. D. L. Mitchell, commanding
officer of the U.S.S. Duval County.
Captain Mitchell noted that
although some repair work on his
ship placed a heavy demand on
available repair facilities, "on all
occasions work commenced quickly,
progressed well, and was of high
quality." He expressed appreciation
for the efforts "enabling the ship to
maintain a high degree of readiness"
throughout its recent deployment
Forwarding word of the commen-
dation, Capt. R. G. Shaver, Indus-
trial Manager, USN, 15th Naval
District, added a "well done" expres-
sion of his own appreciation for the
PanCanal Industrial Division per-
sonnel's "timely and efficient efforts."

the Supply and Community Service
Bureau have received Certificates of
Participation upon completion of

Deadly Mosquito Back,



But in Plastic
The deadly Aedes Aegypti, the
mosquito which transmits the often
fatal yellow fever, has returned to
the Isthmus-preserved in plastic.
Specimens of the mosquito, whose
brothers and sisters were completely
exterminated in Panama in 1949 and
1950, are part of a collection of
insects embedded in clear plastic by
James MacLaren, Chief of the Divi-
sion of Sanitation. Part of this col-
lection was given to the Canal Zone
Library-Museum, recently, as an
example of local hobbies.
The versatile Sanitation Chief has
a number of hobbies, one of which
is collecting insects and other fauna

In saluting their progress, and con-
gratulating the Directors of Credit
Union National Association, Pres-
ident Johnson has said that "credit
unions are providing people of
modest means with a way to accu-
mulate their savings at ample inter-
est, and with a reliable source of
loans at fair interest rates. They are
helping the poorer and less privi-
leged to partake increasingly of the
more abundant life."
The theme of this year's observ-
ance is: "International Credit Union
Day Is A Day Of Thanksgiving."
A highlight in the local celebra-
tion activities is an essay writing
contest among the pupils of the Latin
American schools in the Canal Zone.
Sponsored by the credit unions on
both sides of the Isthmus, with the
cooperation of the Schools Division,
the contest includes pupils from
grade 5 to grade 12. The theme of
the contest is: Credit Unions-their
purpose and functions.
Both elementary and secondary
school principals will appoint a com-
mittee of judges to select the best
English and the best Spanish papers.
In making the selection the judges
will give particular attention to the
presentation of the theme and the
grammar in the composition.

hobby about a year ago when he was
demonstrating to the technicians in
the entomology laboratory of the
Division of Sanitation the methods
of preserving specimens in plastic.
The hobby proved so interesting
that his collection now includes more
than 100 specimens, including all
insects of medical importance except
lice. He also has preserved in plastic
small reptiles, bats, and some fish.

Insects with their skeletons out-
side and cold blooded nervous sys-
tems fortunately curl up their six
legs when poisoned. (Unscientific
aside: All except roaches who don't
know how to curl up.)
The products which kill insects, by
and large, affect warm blooded
animals less.
But insecticides are poisons to us
too. Food seasoned with them
sickens us. As common as insecticides
are, "handle with care" on the labels
frequently goes by unnoticed.
I have just learned of two dogs
that died in the Canal Zone recently
as a result of spray put in a residence
by a private exterminator.
With the help of the Claims
Branch I have personally inves-
tigated 15 suicides in the past 3 years
in which a local insecticide was used
for self extermination.
So you see warm blood animals
do curl up and die, occasionally, not
to mention becoming sick as a result
of misuse of these poisons.
Certain of the stronger insecticides
are not recommended to be used in
the Canal Zone. This is a safety and
health precaution. But men whose
job it is to guard you can't be every-
where. Nor can you be protected
from yourself. I mean-the products
you buy in the sales stores are safe
if used as directed. All insecticide
directions ask you to use care.
One other part of the picture re-
mains to be mentioned. For the em-
ployees in the Canal Zone who use
insecticides in their jobs we have
prescribed methods for handling and
we have regular physical examina-

As with all regulations and equip-
ment, the man actually using the
material represents the key person.
And as for the regular physical exam-
inations, if supervisors and em-
ployees don't make appointments
and report for these examinations,
what good are they?
In the home, please exercise care.
Mother, when you reach for the
aerosol insect spray, move the bis-
cuits first. Better the roach gets away
than the family wind up in the hos-
pital. Above all do not spray near
infants or small children.
Keep alert when the ground crews
spray in your neighborhood. Keep
children away from the workmen
and the area, and beware of un-
approved insecticides.

Series of Tests Set

At Balboa High

The Preliminary Scholastic Apti-
tude Test (PSAT), designed primarily
to help high school juniors and
seniors estimate their ability to do
college-level work, to guide them in
making college plans, and to fam-
iliarize them with timed multiple-
choice tests, will be given at Balboa
High School on Saturday, Octo-
ber 23, at 9 a.m. Students are to
report at 8:30 a.m. to check in.
Students who plan to take this
test are to register with one of the
counselors during the period Octo-
ber 4 to October 21. The registration
fee will be 75 cents.
The test is in somewhat limited
supply and registration will be on a
first come first served basis.
The closing date for registration
for the December 4 College Board
Examinations is November 6. Senior
students in high school and all others
who plan to take the test should pick
up their registration blanks and make
certain they are sent to the testing
company before November 6. The
December testing will include the
Scholastic Achievement Test (SAT),

Achievement Tests, and Writing
Other College Board testing dates
are January 8, March 5, May 7, and
July 9, 1966.


Britain is getting stiff competition
from Japan in trade in the Far East.

British firms held a 25 percent share.
Since then Japan has increased her
share by 2 percent largely at Britain's
In Singapore, which takes $9,800
million of British exports every year,
Japan is selling an equal amount.
Last year Hong Kong's trade ex-

exports to this market fell by 21/2
percent but Japan's rose by 25 per-
cent against heavy competition from

Polio Shots

Urged by

Health Chief
"All persons under 18 should be
fully immunized against poliomyeli-
tis and have the necessary boosters,"
said the Canal Zone Health Director.
"The Salk injections were good,"
he added, "but not as good as the
drops now given on a sugar cube.
Even though you had several polio
shots, youi should have the drops to
insure protection against poliomye-
litis, a killer and crippler."
The Health Director pointed out
that 45 cases of poliomyelitis have
occurred in Honduras since mid-
July. Eighty percent of the reported
cases were children under 4 years.
A mass program to immunize all
children under 7 years of age now
is underway in Honduras.
Three doses of oral polio vaccine
make up the primary series and a
booster is given one year later.
A second booster is given preferably
upon entry in school, but any res-
ident of the Canal Zone 18 years of
age or younger who has not had a
first or second booster should check
with the Public Health nurse in one
of the six Community Health Centers
where oral polio vaccine is given
free. This is the only way a child
can be protected from paralytic
poliomyelitis, the Health Director

Everyone knows that a dog is
man's best friend, but have you ever
wondered about who might be a
dog's best friend; especially a hungry
and unwanted dog?
In the Canal Zone, we find that a
dog's best friend, or rather friends,
are the more than 200 members of
the Canal Zone Society for the Pre-
vention of Cruelty to Animals.
One of these members, Mrs.
Kathleen Holcomb, is certainly one
of the best friends a dog can have
on the Pacific side of the Isthmus.
Mrs. Holcomb, chairman of the
CZSPCA Kennels Committee, de-
votes approximately 15 hours a week
to the animal hospital at Corozal,
where she personally feeds and
walks the animals which have been
placed under the care of the SPCA.
Most of the animals which come
under the protection of the SPCA
have been impounded by either the
Canal Zone or military police. After
10 days, if the animal is not claimed
or reported as missing, it comes
under the protection and care of the
SPCA and is now eligible for
Here again, Mrs. Holcomb per-
forms in another important role for
the SPCA; the careful selection of
families who wish to adopt an SPCA
animal. She constantly receives
phone calls from individuals who
wish to adopt an SPCA dog pr cat
and quite often she is asked to find
a mate for someone's dog. She also
does the seemingly endless amount
of paperwork required when she
finally allows an animal to be
adopted by a responsible person or

The roll-on ferry concept-of a road
haulage operation with an incon-
venient piece of sea in between has
officially been recognized as just
that. The Southampton-Le Havre
route taken by Thoresen Car Ferries
vessels has been designated as part
of the El, the Anglo-European high-
way from London to Palermo via
Paris, Nice, and Rome.

Mrs. Holcomb not only cares for
animals abandoned in the Canal
Zone, but also for those animals
which have been found by Canal
Zone employees and turned over to
the SPCA. On one occasion, a Canal
employee found a half-starved dog
on Melones Island. The dog seemed
to be the only animal there and it
had obviously been left to die. Upon
returning to the Canal Zone, the
animal was turned over to Mrs.
Holcomb. After months of tender
care the dog was returned to a
healthy state and has since been
adopted by a Canal Zone family.
Every Friday night at 5:05, Mrs.
Holcomb can be seen on SCN-TV,
where she usually presents to the
public eye an SPCA animal up for
adoption, and she discusses topics
concerning proper animal education
and care. She noted that the SCN
personnel have been most helpful
and have become a great aid to the
local SPCA.
In July, Mrs. Holcomb visited the
Royal Society for the prevention of
Cruelty to Animals in London, Eng-
land, where she hoped to pick up
some helpful tips on general animal
care, but to her surprise after com-
paring ideas and techniques, she said
that her associates in London were
both flattered and impressed with
the SPCA activities in the Canal
The Canal Zone SPCA was started
in 1958, and has since taken care of
hundreds of homeless dogs and cats
on both sides of the Isthmus. The
SPCA operates entirely on funds
received from the public and a
donation is usually asked for a puppy
under 12 months of age.
Mrs. Holcomb, who lives in Bal-
boa with her husband Clint, a con-
trol house operator, and their son
Vincent, 103, would like to encour-
age Canal Zone residents to adopt
SPCA animals, but she likes to
remind parents that they should not
consider adopting animals for the
purpose of being a plaything for very
young children who can not properly
care for these animals.

Deadfall, by Desmond Cory is a
suspenseful novel, set in modern
Spain, about three of the most skill-
ful jewel thieves in the world. The
plot becomes complicated when the
"loner" of the group unwillingly
becomes involved with the other two,
and is blackmailed into "working"
with them in a daring diamond theft.
Anthony Boucher, that specialist in
tales of suspense, considers Cory's
writing to be suggestive of lan
Fleming's but far better. Although
it's doubtful if Fleming fans will
agree, Deadfall surely is exciting.

Blood Typing Program

To Provide
Blood is something we think
about hardly at all-until it's
needed. Then it can become a
matter of life and death. A pro-
gram to identify blood types is
being developed in the Latin
American communities of the
Canal Zone, sponsored by the
Latin American Civic Councils
in cooperation with the Gorgas
Blood Bank. It will put on file
hundreds of blood types. A central
office, manned by volunteers, will
be able to tell the Blood Bank
where to locate possible donors,
and in the case of rare types of
blood, quick access to this infor-
mation is vital.
In order to understand the pur-
pose of giving blood, its chemistry,
characteristics, and use, the fol-
lowing information has been pro-
vided for a series of articles in

Every schoolboy knows that blood
is what comes from his finger when
it is cut. He also knows that most
cuts soon stop bleeding with the
formation of a clot. But neither the
schoolboy, his teacher, nor his par-
ents know what a complex fluid this
remarkable substance is.
About 7 or 8 percent of body
weight consists of blood; therefore,
a 100-pound woman has 7 to 8 pints
of blood while a 200-pound man
has 13 to 14 pints. Approximately
55 percent of this blood is a liquid
called plasma. The remaining 45
percent is made up of little objects
referred to collectively as the formed
elements of the blood.
The major part of these formed

Donor List
elements are interesting little ob-
jects-the red blood cells. Each is
about seven one-thousandths of a
millimeter in diameter and flattened
on two sides. Their purpose is to
carry hemoglobin in a form that can
deliver ovygen from the lungs to all
cells of the body and in return carry
carbon dioxide from the cells to the
lungs, where it is exhaled. It is the
hemoglobin which gives red cells,
and in turn the blood, red color.
Not as numerous but just as vital
are the white blood cells. These are
of several varieties and are con-
nected with the defense mechanism
of the body. Some defend against
the many bacterial and infectious
diseases to which we are all con-
stantly exposed.
The third group of formed ele-
ments consists of platelets, little ob-
jects one-thousandth of a millimeter
in diameter. Their function is to
clump together and help plug up
holes in damaged blood vessels
and capillaries, as when our school-
boy cut his finger. They play a vital
part in the clotting process.
Plasma, the liquid which makes
up 55 percent of blood, is in itself
a very complex fluid. It carries many
salts in roughly the same proportions
present in sea water. Plasma con-
tains a great number of substances
which feed the cells of the body,
carries different hormones from their
source of manufacture to the tissues
(which they respectively control)
and contains uncounted numbers of
proteins. Many of these proteins are
vital to our defense against infec-
tious disease and they complement
and aid the white cells in their
defense function.

Canal Zone Citizen of the Year.-Rabbi Nathan Witkin, Jewish Auxiliary
Chaplain for the Southern Command, speaks briefly after receiving the
gold American Legion Merit Award medal and the American Legion Meri
Award plaque. The awards ceremony in his honor was held at the American
Legion Post home at Fort Amador. Rabbi Witkin also heads the Jewisi
Welfare Board on La Boca Road and is the Canal Zone's only rabbi. With
him is Mrs. Witkin. In the background are, right, Maj. Gen. James D. Alger

This beats climbing down the Jacob's ladder any time. The riding crew of
the 570-foot forebody section of the tanker "Lake Palourde" is shown
disembarking in style with the help of the Balboa Fire Department. The
dead hulk arrived in Balboa in tow of the Dutch tug "Groningen" and was
brought to dock by Panama Canal tugs. She was towed through the Canal
by Canal tugs and taken in tow again in Cristobal by the "Groningen,"
which is towing the hulk from Japan to Newport News, Va. There she will
be fitted out with a new stern. The "Lake Palourde" is a sister ship of the
"Torrey Canyon," which was towed through the Canal in September. Both
will be converted into tankers approximately 855 feet in length and with
104-foot beams.

Superintendent of Coco Solo

Hospital Bears "Bonus" Label

Behind his back, and sometimes
right to his face, people on the Atlan-
tic side of the Isthmus refer to
Lt. Col. Otis E. Bridgeford, Super-
intendent, Coco Solo Hospital, as a
"bonus." He not only is the hos-
pital's superintendent, he estab-
lished orthopedic service for the first
time on the Atlantic side. Besides
that, he is available to physical
therapy as consultant.
Prior to Colonel Bridgeford's es-
tablishment of the orthopedic clinic,
a child with orthopedic problems
had to be taken on a 50-mile trip to
Gorgas Hospital in Ancon.
Colonel Bridgeford, a certified
a orthopedic surgeon, is a firm believer
that hospital management is made
easier if the superintendent takes a
hand in hospital practice.
The need of orthopedic service on
the Atlantic side became evident to
him as soon as he checked on the
services available at Coco Solo Hos-
pital. During the Orthopedic Clinic's
first year, from July 1, 1964 to
June 30 of this year 1,055 outpatients
were treated.
Working with Colonel Bridgeford
in the Orthopedic Clinic are general
e surgeons Dr. Casper Rea, Dr. Harry
t Westerburg, and Dr. Paul Loixeaux.
n This is Colonel Bridgeford's first
h residence on the Isthmus and his first
h time in the tropical zone.
d He was born in Sherrodsville,
s, Ohio. He received his B.A. degree
f at Ohio State University, and his
t Doctor of Medicine degree from the
University of Cincinnati Medical
He enlisted in U.S. military service
and was assigned as a medical
administrative officer.
Prior to coming to the Canal Zone,
- his only other overseas assignment
- was in Nuremberg, Germany.
Colonel Bridgeford is a fellow of

1603' lbs., 174," lbs., 199V2 lbs., and
heavyweight. There will also be
basketball and bowling to round out
the program.
This year a team trophy will be
awarded and points will be given
for placing from 1st to 5th place
in the various events. A trophy will
be awarded the winner in individual
events and medals will be awarded
for 2d through 5th place in the
events. The Explorer who scores the
most points for his team and is the
top scorer in the olympics will also
be awarded a trophy.
October 21 is the cutoff date for
Explorers to be eligible for the
olympics. New members added after
that date will not be allowed to take
part in the meet. All units are re-
minded that new members added
between now and October 21 must
be registered in the Council office to
be eligible.

Sonia del Rio, es Dibujante de Ingenieria Civil en la Divisi6n de Ingenieria
del Canal de PanamA. Su lugar de trabajo se encuentra en el tercer piso del
Edificio de Administraci6n. Por su caricter afable goza del aprecio de todos
los que la conocen. Naci6 en PanamA; como pueden notar esta en plena
juventud; hizo sus studios en la Zona del Canal y en la Universidad de
PanamA y desde hace ya algunos meses pertenece a la organizaci6n del
Canal. No habla much y por eso nos sorprende cuando nos cuenta de sus
muchos viajes. Ha viajado por todos los Estados Unidos, Mexico, Africa,
Europa y Centro Am6rica. Hizo un viaje por mar; "fue a bordo del "Cons-
titution", nos dice, "los dias que pas6 a bordo de ese lujoso barco, fueron
algo divino". Recorri6 Espaiia, Francia e Inglaterra. Nos dice que lo que
mAs le gust6 de Paris fueron los caf6s de Montmartre; de Espafia, la Giralda
de Sevilla, y de Inglaterra, las decoraciones de Navidad. Estuvo tambi6n
en Casablanca, "bellisima ciudad", nos dice, "pero sumamente america-
nizada, inclusive la Casbah". Nos dice que maneja s6lo por necesidad, que
es cat6lica y que va a la Iglesia de Cristo Rey, que le gusta disfrutar la vida
y que todavia estA a la espera de su Principe Azul.




aQui6n no la conoce, de todos los que
trabajan en el Edificio de Adminis-
traci6n de Balboa Heights? Es Lolita,
la cajera de la Cafeteria. Pero su
nombre complete es Dolores A.
Moses, panamefia, de 33 afios de
edad, casada con Jacinto V. Moses,
empleado de Agencias de Viajes Fi-
danque y con cuatro hijos: Jacinto
V., Jr., de 13 afios; Osvaldo, de 12;
Jorge B., de 9, e Ivette Maria Isabel,
de 6. Todos estAn estudiando, hasta
la mAs pequefia, que esta en un Jar-
din de la Infancia. Asi como la ven
en la fotografia, es como siempre esta
Lolita. Tiene una sonrisa para todos,
adn en las horas mAs pesadas, cuando
se forman las largas filas del medio-
dia. Tiene 11 afios de prestar servi-
cios en la organizaci6n del Canal de
PanamA, pero su experiencia en el
trato con el p6blico data de much
antes, pues durante afios trabaj6 en
aquel famoso restaurant, el O.K.
Amigo. Estudi6 en la Santa Familia
y en la Escuela PrActica de Comer-
cio y ahora dedica todo su tiempo a
su trabajo, a sus hijos y a su esposo.
Cuando le ireguntamos por sus pa-
satiempos, dice que son muy pocos,
pues casi siempre estA muy ocupada
en la casa. Dice que de su trabajo,
lo que mAs le gusta es el trato que
le dan sus jefes.

Su Salubridad en el Istmo
Por Donald Robinson
Los insects de esqueleto externo y de sistema nervioso de sangre
fria afortunadamente cuando han sido envenenados enrollan sus
seis patas. (Un aparte no cientifico: todos menos las cucarachas, las
cuales no saben c6mo enrollarse.)
Los products que matan insects afectan menos a los animals
de sangre caliente.
Pero los intecticidas son venenosos para nosotros tambidn. La
comida sazonada con insecticides nos enferma. A pesar de scr tan
com6n el insecticide, la leyenda, "6sese con cuidado", de la etiqueta,
pasa desapercibida con frecuencia.
Acabo de enterarme que dos perros murieron en la Zona del Canal
como resultado de la fumigaci6n efectuada en una residencia por
una fumigadora privada.
Con la ayuda de la Secci6n de Reclamos he investigado personal-
mente 15 suicidios registrados en los 6itimos 3 afios en los cuales se
utiliz6 un insecticide local para autoexterminarse.
De modo que, como pueden ver, los animals de sangre caliente
si mueren ocasionalmente y dcsde luego se enferman.
Algunos de los insecticides mis fuertes no se recomienda que se
usen en la Zona del Canal, lo cual es una media de precauci6n. Pero
aquellos hombres cuyo deber en cuidar a ustedes no pueden estar
en todos lados. Ni se puede proteger a ustedes de ustedes mismos.
Quiero decir . los products que se compran en los almacenes
no son peligrosos si se siguen las instrucciones. Todas las instrucciones
solicitan que se tenga cuidado.
Debese mencionar otro aspect. A los empleados de la Zona del
Canal que usan insecticides en sus trabajos, les hemos indicado
m6todos para usarlos, y pasan examenes fisicos peri6dicos.
La Direcci6n de Salubridad hace un examen especial de sangre
cuando se trata de personas que andan con insecticides. Todos noso-
tros creemos sinceramente en la necesidad de protegerse de dichos
Como en toda regulaci6n y equipo, la persona clave es la que en
realidad usa el material. En cuanto a los eximenes fisicos peri6dicos,
si los supervisors y empleados no concertan las citas y no se reportan
para examinarse, de que sirven esos examenes?
En su casa, por favor, tengan cuidado. Madre, cuando tome el
atomizador para insects, aleje las galletas primero. Es mejor que
se escape la cucaracha a que toda la familiar termine en el hospital.
Sobre todo, no rocie donde haya infants o nifios pequefios.
Mantinganse alertas cuando la cuadrilla de trabajadores fumigue
en su vecindario. Mantengan a los nifios alejados de los trabajadores
y del Area, y tengan cuidado con los insecticides no aprobados.

Paigina 4


La necesidad de autodisciplina en la prevenci6n de accidents es
en la actualidad mais ampliamente reconocida de lo que nunca lo
fuera antes. Si los accidents deben ser prevenidos es el moment de
que cada uno analice detenidamente las causes y acepte la desagra-
dable realidad de que la mayoria de los accidents podrian ser evita-
dos siguiendo simplemente las normas de seguridad establecidas.
Es hora de que cada individuo se discipline a si mismo aceptando
y siguiendo estas normas. Sabemos que la mayoria nunca lo hari
hasta que algunos pocos decidan que hacer y c6mo hacerlo.
La falta de interns e iniciativa en los individuos son las razones
por las cuales los supervisors son necesarios. Ellos son los repre-
sentantes elegidos por la gerencia para brindar guia y direcci6n.
En cuanto a los supervisors les ha sido dada la responsabilidad y
autoridad para dirigir a otros, es natural que los trabajadores bajo
sus 6rdenes se miren en ellos para guia en todos los aspects del
trabajo. Es un hecho reconocido que los trabajadores siguen constan-
temente el ejemplo dado por el supervisor, ya sea 6ste bueno o malo.
Si un supervisor rompe las reglas de seguridad y corre riesgos, es
casi seguro que sus subordinados harAin lo mismo. No tiene sentido
hablar de prevenci6n de accidents con los trabajadores cuando ellos
saben por las acciones del supervisor que otros aspects de la
producci6n son mais importantes.
Los trabajadores cooperativos estarAn interesados en satisfacer a su
supervisor en lo que ellos creen que este quiere con respect al
trabajo. El correr riesgos a fin de mantener la producci6n puede ser
considerado acceptable a menos que el supervisor haya demostrado
mais alli de toda duda que el trabajo debe ser hecho correctamente.
Aqui es donde la discipline se torna important y por discipline
se significa auto control, el cual capacity a la persona para apreciar
debidamente la situaci6n y actuar de acuerdo con su mejor criterio.
Pero muy a menudo esto no sucede. En el deseo de que la producci6n
continue o debido a circunstancias dificiles o irritantes, se cometen
muchos actos inseguros los que, bajo circunstancias normales nunca
se cometerian.
La discipline debe ser individual, ya que la supervision nunca
reemplazara la necesidad de cada individuo de considerar su propia
seguridad en todo moment.
El problema que enfrentan los supervisors es el conseguir que
todos y cada uno lo hagan en todo moment.
