Food Charge Accounts

To Discontinue July I

Effective July 1, supermarket and
Service Center sales will be made by
the Panama Canal only on a cash
basis. The change will put PanCanal
supermarkets on the same operational
basis as supermarkets in the United
States. At the same time, the $2
minimum that can be charged in all
other departments will be raised
to $5.
There will be some savings to the
organization when the changes are
effected. Record keeping, billing,
and collecting will be eliminated on
about 12,500 transactions, it is esti-
mated. Installment sales paid by pay-
roll deduction will not be affected.
For shopper convenience, personal
checks will be accepted at cash regis-
ters in the supermarket and Service
Centers, beginning July 1. The check
must be for the amount of the pur-
chase. Check cashing privileges now
enjoyed will be continued.
Charge privileges in all sections
except Service Centers and super-
markets will be continued. No charge
accounts will be opened for new em-
ployees who have a base hourly rate
of less than $3. However, any em-
ployee now authorized may continue
to use charge facilities regardless of
his pay base. There will be no change

the end of the following month. And,
there will be no change in proce-
dures for granting charge account
privileges to employees of other
Government agencies.
The unpaid balance in a charge
account as of June 30 will be payable
in cash, or it may be paid by payroll
deduction over 6 months, at not less
than $75 a pay period.
With the payroll conversion to
computer planned for 1967, em-
ployee charge accounts will be eli-
minated and a payroll deduction
system substituted.

Animal Hospital

Is Planned for

Atlantic Side
An animal hospital is expected to
open on the Atlantic side of the Isth-
mus on or about July 1st.
The new unit, which will be
headed by Dr. Paul H. Dowell, for-
merly manager of Mindi Dairy, will
provide comprehensive medical and
surgical services in addition to animal
quarantine facilities for the Atlantic
community. Dogs and cats entering
the Canal Zone from off the Isthmus
are now quarantined at Corozal.
Atlantic side owners of such animals
have long complained of the incon-
venience of driving 100 miles to visit
their pets.
The new facility will be located on
the opposite side of the highway
from the entrance to Mindi Dairy and
is composed of buildings formerly
used in the dairy operation.
Treatment at the new animal hos-
pital will be available for large
animals, such as horses, as well as
the smaller pets. It is expected the
several fenced concrete corrals will
be available to shipping interests that
wish to hold animals on the Isthmus,
pending transhipment.
The new unit will be operated by
the Health Bureau's Division of
Veterinary Medicine. Fees for pro-
fessional and other services will be
the same as those now charged on
the Pacific side of the Isthmus.


R. Andrew Rankin, assistant scout
executive, Canal Zone Council, Boy
Scouts of America, arrived on the
Isthmus from Portsmouth, Va.,
May 27. Rankin, District Scout Exe-
cutive of Tidewater, Council, Nor-
folk. Va., for the past 5 years, is a
graduate of Richmond University
(1960) where he majored in psy-
chology. He will work with scouts
in the Gold Coast District, on the
Atlantic side and will be in charge of
Camp Chagres this summer.

By Eleanor Burnham

Criminal Conversation by Nicolas
Freeling has been billed as the best
mystery story of the year. Inspector
van der Valk of the Amsterdam
police has received an anonymous
letter telling him of a murder. His
investigation includes posing as the
patient of a famous doctor and
engaging in an exciting battle of
wits. The result-a mystery solved in
a doctor's consulting room.
The Bonapartes by David Stacton
is not just another book about
Napoleon but is the story of hi's
family and what happened to it after
1814 when Napoleon was exiled to
Elba. Though none of his relatives,
with the possible exception of his
mother, "Madame Mere," showed
Napoleon's genius, they were surely
a colorful, fascinating, and many

Solder Fumes

Are Dangerous

The hobbyist who uses silver
solder containing cadmium metal
may be flirting with a serious health
hazard and not know it. Dr. Paul
Joliet, Chief of the U.S. Public
Health Service's Division of Accident
Prevention, made this warning today.
Recent deaths related to the use
in industry of silver solder containing
cadmium underscore the need for
hobbyists to be aware of the danger
when using cadmium solder in home
workshops. Cadmium, when over-
heated, vaporizes and produces cad-
mium oxide-a highly dangerous
fume which can cause death even
when inhaled in small quantities.
Dr. Joliet emphasized that the risk
lies in the fact that the fumes of
cadmium are practically odorless and
lethal doses can be inhaled without
any irritation or discomfort that
would give a warning. In addition, it
may take from 4 to 8 hours for serious
symptoms to develop.
Cadmium is used in only certain
types of silver solder. The commonly
used tin-based solders do not present
this hazard. Whenever cadmium-
based solder is used, precautions
should be taken to avoid breathing
the solder fumes, and to assure the
work area is well ventilated.

times objectionable lot. Stacton has
researched his book well, included
photos and a genealogical table. He
has written a book which will fas-
cinate Napoleon enthusiasts.
The Peacemakers; the Great
Powers and American Independence
by Richard B. Morris is said to be
the definitive account of the Peace
of Paris in which the independence
of the 13 colonies was recognized.
John Adams, one of the principals,
called this "one of the most impor-
tant political events that ever
happened on this globe." The pres-
ent account tells of power politics
and behind-the-scenes intrigue from
which Adams, John Jay, and Franklin
emerged as great statesmen. Morris
is a professor of history at Columbia
University and has written other
recognized works on the early history
of the United States.
Full Tilt describes Dervla Mur-
phy's solo trip from Ireland to India
on a bicycle. The book is in the form
of a diary which this 32-year-old
young woman kept throughout the
trip. On her faithful bicycle which
she named Rozinante and affec-
tionately called "Roz" she covered
about 3,000 miles in 6 months. Miss
Murphy discounted the dangers, but
revelled in the fascination of the trip
and managed to keep the diary up-
to-date each day along the way. The
book thus faithfully reveals the fresh
reactions and ever-present sense of
humor of its author.
Spring Tides by Samuel Eliot
Morison is a small book which will
delight the hearts of local sailors.
It is a collection of sketches and
essays which may describe a day's
sail, a cruise or merely tell of the
authors' reactions to the sea. Admiral
Morison has written well-known
books-many about the sea. As he
says "the sea belongs to us all, and
every aspect of it. .. is fraught
with beauty."

U.S. Students

Begin Work

For Summer
By next Monday it is anticipated
that all the U.S.-school students
working for the Canal organization
under the 1966 Student Assistant
Program will have reported on the
An unusual factor this year is that
pay increases were given the students
even before they started work. Effec-
tive June 1, the rate of pay for High-
School graduates was increased from
85 to 90 cents an hour, and from
$1.10 to $1.15 for College students.
There are 200 students in temporary
employment during the U.S. schools'
summer vacation period, June 6
through September 3.
An orientation tour and lecture for
the student assistants is scheduled for
Friday, June 17. The program in-
cludes a partial transit through Gail-
lard Cut on the Panama Canal launch
Las Cruces, and an orientation lec-
ture in the Balboa High School

Commuter Rates

Going up on PRR
Commuter rates on the Panama
Railroad will be increased by $1 a
week, effective June 12.
The rates have not been changed
since 1957, but since that time the
service has been improved by allow-
ing commuters to use all scheduled
trains and by replacing the two early
morning freights, which left from
Mount Hope and Diablo, by pas-
senger trains departing from Colon
and Panama.
Operating costs of the railroad
have increased to the point where
it is now economically impossible to
continue with the present rates.
Commuter tickets, good for five
round trips during a 7-day period of
any week, Sunday through Saturday,
will cost $7.25 for first class and
$4.75 for second class. Special intra-
agency fares for commuters, good on
all scheduled trains for five round
trips commencing Sunday through
Saturday, will be $6 for first class
and $4 for second class.
These rates are for personnel of
the Panama Canal organization and
other Government agencies who must
travel across the Isthmus between
their residence and place of work.

Thaw Frozen Milk
Slowly at 4o00F.
For best results, do not thaw
frozen milk at room temperature.
This method of thawing permits bac-
terial growth which can cause off-
taste, lumpy, and even sour milk.
Avoid this danger by slowly defrost-
ing your purchase at a temperature
of 40 F. or lower.
This means that your needs should
be anticipated about 3 days in ad-
vance and stored in the chill section
of your refrigerator which is designed
to operate at 40F.
Partially defrosted milk is available

Kiddies, Keep Clear

Of Construction Site
C. McG. Brandl, chief of the Con-
struction Division, urges parents to
keep their children out of the con-
struction area of the Corozal swim-
ming pool where youngsters have
been reported playing during and
after work hours.
In some instances, they simply
have been watching the work in
progress but at other times they have
been running in the excavation area.
Brandl said the contractor also has
been instructed to keep children out
of the work site.
But the parents have the primary
responsibility of protecting their
children from possible injuries by
keeping them out of the construction
area at all times, Brandl said.
He pointed out that the Panama
Canal organization has just com-
pleted the installation of a fenced-in,
well equipped playground close by,
on the west side of Anton Street.

A Jacktar is a sailor. In the old
days he wore his hair long and made
up into a pigtail that he kept well
greased and tarred. The blue collar
he wore protected his jumper and
jacket from the grease or tar.

Stevenson have been saving their pennies, nickels, and dimes for more than
a year and a half to spend at Disneyland. Although the children have been
to the United States before it was just to New Orleans and this was the
United States to them. The Stevensons who left the Isthmus for a U.S.
vacation this week are starting at Disneyland on the west coast this time
in order to show their children the wide expanse of the United States.

Golf Match

To Be Held

June 21-23
Young, local golfers will tee off
June 21, at the Panama Golf Club
course for the start of the 54-hole,
3-day 1966 JayCee Golf Champion-
The winning 4-boy team will rep-
resent the Isthmus at the National
JayCee Golf Championships to be
played later this year at Greens-
boro, N.C.
The tourney is sponsored jointly
by the Panama Amateur Golf Asso-
ciation, the Panama Golf Club, and
leading local businessmen and will
provide competition for boys in
various junior groups. The winning
quartet will be sent on an expense-
paid basis and compete for both team
and individual trophy awards.
The local tournament play is sched-
uled for June 21, 22, and 23. The
only restriction in the 13 to 17-age
group is that the boy may be past
17 but will not have reached his 18th
birthday by August 15.
Boys wishing to compete in the
1966 JayCee Championships should
register with their respective club
professionals not later than June 18.
Isthmian teams have done well in
the final competition in the past. The
International Trophy, awarded to the
low-scoring player from outside the
United States, was won three con-
secutive times by Leo Dehlinger of
Panama, then by Grover Matheney
of Panama and Jeff Riley of Balboa
won it in 1963 and 1965.

Ya Comenz6 la Invasi6n

Si ha notado usted que hay muchos
zancudos, no se alarm. Eso no sig-
nifica que en la Zona del Canal se
ha paralizado el control de mosquitos.
En esta parte del afio, la Zona del
Canal ha sido invadida por una espe-
cie llamada "mosquito de 25 millas",
un insecto oscuro que puede volar
de 20 a 25 mills desde su criadero
hasta el objetivo human.
Este mosquito, cuyo nombre cien-
tifico es Aedes taeniorhynchus, no es
transmisor de enfermedades, pero es
una plaga pariente de muchisimos

en la Zona del Canal.

No, esta foto no nos la mandaron del Hawaii. Fue tomada durante la Primera Competencia de Acuaplanos de
Panama, que tuvo lugar el pasado sabado 4 de junio, en las bellas playas de Rio Mar, en la Rep6blica de
PanamA. Participaron acuaplaneadores de los clubes Santo Domingo y Trota Olas, de PanamA, y los Acr6batas

Estan Trabajando

200 Estudiantes

En sus Vacaciones
Se espera que para el pr6ximo
lunes, todos los estudiantes de las
escuelas estadounidenses que traba-
jan para el Canal de PanamA, bajo
el Program de Ayudantes Estudian-
tiles de 1966, se habrAn presentado
al empleo.
Cosa rara ha sido que este anio, los
estudiantes recibieron un aumento
de sueldo antes de empezar a traba-
jar. A partir del 19 de junior, la rata
de salario para los graduados de Es-
cuela Secundaria fue aumentada de
85 a 90 centavos por hora, y de $1.10
a $1.15 para estudiantes Universita-
rios. Hay 200 estudiantes en empleos
(Contin6a en la pdgina 4)

Anuncio de Interes Para

Abonacos del Ferrocarril
Las tarifas para los abonados del Ferrocarril de Panama serin
aumentadas en $1 por semana, a partir del 12 de junior.
Los precious no han cambiado desde 1957, pero desde entonces el
servicio ha sido mejorado, al permitir que los abonados usen todos
los trenes y reemplazando los dos trenes de carga que corrian en la
mafiana temprano, desde Mount Hope y desde Diablo, por trees
de pasajeros que parten desde Col6n y PanamA.
Los costs de operaci6n del ferrocarril han subido a tal punto, que
es econ6micamente impossible continuar con las presents tarifas.
Los boletos de abonados, buenos para cinco viajes de ida y vuelta
durante el period de 7 dias de cualquier semana, de domingo a
sAbado, costarain $7.25 para primera clase y $4.75, para segunda
clase. Boletos especiales para abonados, empleados del Canal de
PanamA y demAs agencies del Gobierno de Estados Unidos, que
deben viajar de un lado al otro del Istmo, para acudir a sus trabajos,
tendrAn un precio especial: $6 para primera clase y $4 para la
segunda clase.

Al Descongelar

La Leche Debe

Ir con Cuidado
Para obtener los mejores resulta-
dos, no deshiele la leche congelada
a la temperature ambiente. Ello per-
mitira el crecimiento de bacteria que
pueden causar mal sabor, o hacer que
la leche parezca terrosa o se ponga
agria. Evite esto deshelando despacio
la leche a una temperature de 40
grades Farenheit o menos.
Esto quiere decir que usted debe
anticipar sus necesidades, por lo
menos en 3 dias y guardar la canti-
dad de leche que necesite en la
secci6n de enfriamiento de su refri-
gerador, que estA disefiada para
operar a 40 grades Farenheit.
Leche parcialmente descongelada
puede conseguirse en los almacenes
dc la Zona del Canal para aquellas
personas que no deseen tomarse la
molestia de deshelarla despacio en
la casa.

El barco alemAn "Treuenfels" que aparece transitando el Corte Gaillard,
tiene el puente de mando construido bien adelante de la nave para hacer
lugar a dos gruias pesadas que estan colocadas en el centre del barco. Las
grfias, capaces de levantar cada una, 130 toneladas de carga, fueron suma-
mente tiles en el Canal recientemente, cuando una de las dos barcazas
que Ilevaba como carga sobre cubierta, tuvo que ser sacada del barco, en
Crist6bal. Fue remolcada a travis del Canal y vuelta a poner sobre la
cubierta del "Treuenfels", con las grias de la nave. El barco navega de
Charleston hacia el Pacifico del Sur.

La Srta. Shaw, que se uni6 al
Canal de PanamA en abril de 1964,
tambi6n habla su poquito de griego,
persa y arabe. Decir "hola" en esos
idiomas es algo que nuestros linoti-
pos no pueden transcribir.
La Srta. Shaw asisti6 a la escuela
en la Ciudad de Nueva York, su li-
cenciatura la recibi6 en el Hunter
College y tiene un master de la Es-
cuela de Educaci6n de la Universi-
dad de Nueva York. Tambi6n hizo
studios avanzados de administraci6n
y supervision en la Escuela para
Graduados de Siracusa, Nueva York.
Su experiencia en idiomas la ad-

Antillas Holandesas; en Casablanca,
Africa del Norte, y en IrAn.
De manera que ella esti bien

Se Abrira Hospital

Para Animales en

El Sector Atlantico
Para el dia 19 de iulio se inaugu-
rarA en el lado AtlIntico del Istmo
un hospital para animals.
La nueva unidad, que estara a
cargo del Dr. Paul H. Dowell, anti-
guo gerente de la Grania de Mindi,
proveerA tratamiento medico y servi-
cios de cirugia, ademis de facilida-
des de cuarentena animal para la co-
munidad del Atlantico. Los perros y
gatos que entran a la Zona del Canal
de fuera del Istmo son ahora puestos
en cuarentena en Corozal. Los due-
tios de dichos animals del sector
Atlantico se han estado quejando de
la inconveniencia de tener que viajar
100 millas para visitar sus mascotas.
La nueva instalaci6n estara locali-
zada en el lado opuesto a la entrada
de la Granja de Mindi y son edificios
reformados, usados antiguamente en
operaciones de lecheria.
Los tratamientos en el nuevo hos-
pital de animals estarAn disponibles
para animals grandes, tales como
caballos, y tambien para las peque-
ias mascotas. Se espera que muchos
corrales con cerca de concrete esta-
rAn a la disposici6n de los que deseen
guardar sus animals en el Istmo,
antes de embarcarlos.
La nueva unidad sera operada por
la Division de Medicina Veterinaria
de la Direcci6n de Salubridad. El
costo de tratamiento y otros servicios
profesionales serAn los mismos que
se cobran actualmente en el lado
Pacifico del Istmo.
