Top Safety

Award Winner

The Panama Canal's participation
in President Johnson's Mission Safety-
70 contributed substantially to the
overall reduction of disabling injuries
among Federal employees last year.
It also exceeded the reduction of inju-
ries of many other major Government
agencies and achieved the goal of the
President's safety program.
In a ceremony at the White House,
President Johnson presented awards
to three agencies in recognition of
their outstanding performance in acci-
dent prevention during 1966.
The three agencies honored for
achieving the goal of Mission Safety-
70 to reduce Federal employee inju-
ries and costs by 30 percent by 1970-
were the Navy Department for its

In the Canal organization, the
Civil Affairs Bureau received the
two top awards for 1966-the Gov-
ernor's Annual Safety Trophy for
a 67 percent reduction in its annual
disabling injury frequency rate
from its own previous average rate
and the National Safety Council's
Award of Merit for 29 percent
improvement in its accident fre-
quency rate.
The Canal organization, as a
whole, also was awarded a National
Safety Council Award of Merit for
a 30 percent improvement in re-
duction of accidents. The Staff and
Administrative Units of the Pan-
ama Canal were presented the Na-
tional Safety Council's Award of
Honor for having worked 3,490,324
hours between July 30, 1964, and
December 31, 1966, without having
a disabling injury.

outstanding program of safety in all
areas; the Federal Aviation Agency
for reducing the frequency of injuries
more than 14 percent and the severity
for injuries more than 33 percent;
the Smithsonian Institution for reduc-
ing a variety of hazards from Laser
beams to dangers in the Zoological
In evaluating the program, the
President pointed out that 18 major
agencies employing more than 80 per-
cent of our Federal civilian workers
have significantly reduced their injury
figures. One-the District of Colum-
bia Government-has achieved 29
percent reduction-in only 2 years
reaching the target set for 1970. But
the President emphasized that the
goal has not yet been reached and,
in some areas, the accident rate is

Savings Bonds for Education

Solve Big Financing Problem

Savings Bonds for Education have usually be shifted to the child by

solved the problem for thousands
of families faced with financing
children's higher learning.

The increasing costs of higher
education and the growing impor-
tance of higher education in today's
world are cause enough for con-
sidering the advantages of payroll
deduction purchase of U.S. Savings
Bonds for children's education.
Based on estimates by the U.S.
Department of Health, Education,
and Welfare, the cost of attending
college (public institutions) in the
mid-1960's averaged about $1,600
a year. By the mid-1970's costs may
be expected to reach $2,100 in pub-
lic institutions and $3,190 in private
Series E Bonds, purchased auto-
matically through the Payroll Savings
Plan, have certain qualities which
make them suitable for building an
education fund. First, they are safe-
backed by the full faith and credit
of the United States. Second, they
offer an attractive rate of interest-
4.15 percent, when held to maturity,
and are automatically extended for
10 years, giving an advantage of
holding them for 17 years. Third, the
principal and interest are fully
guaranteed. Fourth, there is never
danger of loss. Fifth, they are flexible-
adaptable to a long range goal, yet
may be cashed when needed.
Buying bonds for education has a
special tax advantage. Under the
plan, bonds are purchased in the
child's name, either alone or with a
parent as beneficiary. These bonds
become an outright gift from parent
to child. The income liability can

at the end of the first year of bond
purchases, listing the increase in bond
value as income to the child. The
initial return establishes the intent
and no further returns need be filed
as long as the child's annual income
is less than $600; and no tax will be
dui if the bond interest, plus other
income, amounts to less than $900
($600 personal exemption plus $300
standard deduction). Under these
conditions, the total interest accruals
on the bonds will be tax-free when
lie cashes them for his education.

It is important that a copy of the
first income tax return filed in the
child's name be kept for possible
proof in later years that the interest
has been reported.

The Distinguished Expert Rifleman Award for 50-feet small bore course is
presented to Elmer J. Kent, Jr. Howard W. Osborn, Junior Rifle Club
Leader, made the award on behalf of the National Rifle Association.

Student at BHS, 15, Is Rated

Distinguished Expert Rifleman

Elmer J. Kent, Jr., has earned the
highest award that can be won on
any rifle course, the Distinguished
Expert Rifleman Award. Kent, who
is 15 years old, started shooting with
the Junior Division of the Balboa
Gun Club in January 1966. By the
end of February, he had attained the
rank of Expert Rifleman.
To qualify for Distinguished Rifle-
man, it is necessary to shoot 10 5-bull
targets in each of 4 positions-prone,
sitting, kneeling, and standing. The
difficult part is that each bull of the
5-bull targets must have a minimum
score in 2 shots as follows: prone and
sitting 18, kneeling and standing 16.

If the score of any one of the
5-bulls is less than the above, the
entire target is disqualified. All targets
must be witnessed by a member of
the NRA and then the targets are sent
to NRA for verification.
Kent, who lives at Howard AFB,
has been a member of several Junior
Division rifle teams and is an active
member of the Balboa High School
ROTC. He also has been a member
of their rifle team. Kent is currently
working for his Distinguished Rifle-
man award on the 50-yard course.
His father is a civil engineer with
the U.S. Air Force.

"Those construction days were
hard ones," Mrs. Mary Louise
Engleke told the Tulsa Tribune last
month. But she stayed on and spent
54 of her 95 years in the Canal Zone,
she reported.
A story about Mrs. Engleke and
a photograph of her appeared in a
recent issue of the Tulsa, Okla., daily.
Now a resident of Tulsa, she re-
minisced for her interviewer about
her years spent in the Zone.
Born in Atlanta, Ga., in 1872, Mrs.

Engleke met Harry Engleke in Char-
lotte, N.C., and married him at the
age of 17. Soon afterwards, they
moved to the Canal Zone.
Mrs. Engleke said she remembered
attending St. Luke's Cathedral at the
same time as did a young Army Offi-
cer Dwight D. Eisenhower and his
wife, Mamie.

Commodore Gets Honorary Pilot's

License on Last Trip Through Canal

Commodore F. J. Lavers, who re-
cently retired after 47 years with Port
Line, Ltd., of London, received an
honorary Panama Canal pilot's license
from Acting Cristobal Port Captain
Andrew Stohrer during his last visit
to the Panama Canal.
The presentation was made aboard
the Port Phillip, on which Commo-
dore Lavers was traveling to his
retirement home.
Lavers joined Port Line as a deck
apprentice in 1920. He obtained 2d
and 1st mate's certificates in 1924
and 1927 respectively, and a Master's
certificate in 1930.
His nautical career has been a
colorful one. While serving as chief
officer on the old Port Montreal in
June, 1942, that vessel was torpedoed
and sank. All hands were rescued.
Lavers served as staff captain on
the maiden voyage of the Port Bris-
blon,. and served in this capacity
whliin Queen Elizabeth visited the
ship in London. At the end of the
voyage, in 1949, Commodore Lavers
was made master of the Port St. John.
lie served as master on many of
the company vessels transiting the
Panama Canal and was appointed

commodore of the fleet in December
1965. His last command was on
MV Port Nicholson.
Commodore Lavers will make his
home in New Zealand, where his
wife and son now reside.

Premiums To Be Lower

For Some Annuitants

The Civil Service Commission has
announced that, as a result of Medi-
care, it will reduce the monthly pre-
miums of 90,000 civil service annuit-
ants enrolled in the Uniform Plan
offered under the Retired Federal
Employees Health Benefits program.
The premium reduction, which
will be reflected in the October 1
annuity checks, will increase the en-
rollees' annuities by $2, $4, or $8
a month, depending upon the type
of coverage an annuitant has.
The Retired Federal Employees
Health Benefits program covers Fed-
Leral employees who retired before
July 1960, and the survivors of those
who retired or died before that date.

Mrs. Engleke left the Zone in
1955 when her husband died. The
couple had reared 11 children here,
2 of whom still are on the Isthmus.
They are Howard S. Engleke, Chief,
Communications Branch, Electrical
Division, and Mrs. Virginia Favorite,
of Margarita.
Lt. Robert Engleke of the Panama
Canal Police Division is one of Mrs.
Engleke's nine grandchildren who
reside on the Isthmus.

The Chief of the Panama Canal
Safety Branch, Warren H. Smith, re-
ports that the Canal organization
achieved a 30 percent reduction in
injury figures exceeding the District
of Columbia Government achieve-
ment of 29 percent. The Canal's in-
jury frequency rate went down 19
percent in the first quarter and the
severity rate of injuries was reduced
57 percent, compared with its pre-
vious 3-year average.
At the presentation of the safety
awards President Johnson remarked
that between 1958 and 1955, 1,200
Federal workers had lost their lives
because of job injuries and nearly
300,000 others had been disabled.
Adding up the cost to the Nation of
these deaths and injuries, more than
70,000 man-years of labor had been
lost in those 7 years. The President
stated that those shocking statistics
prompted the start of the Mission
Safety-70 program in February 1965.
On congratulating the agencies
honored, President Johnson stated,
"I intend to make your achievements
known to the other departments and
agencies. If they know what is good
for them-in more ways than one-
they'll follow your example."

Las closes de fuegos y

los extintores para combatirlos

A PESAR DE TODAS LAS MEDIDAS de precauci6n que se toman para evitar
los incendios, a veces 6stos se produce. En tales casos, para controlarlos y
extinguirlos rapidamente, hay que poner en prActica todos los conocimientos
adquiridos en la material.
A parte de los sistemas fijos de extinci6n instalados permanentemente en
los locales, es necesario contar con extintores portAtiles. Estos extintores son
muy eficientes para combatir incendios pequefios entire el moment de descu-
brirlos y el funcionamiento del equipo automAtico o la llegada de los bombers.
Para que sean efectivos, los extintores portatiles deben ser de tipo confia-
ble, correctos para combatir la clase de fuego que se pueda presentar en esa
zona, estar ubicados en un lugar de fAcil acceso, estar en perfectas condicio-
nes de funcionamiento y ser operables por el personal del Area.
Los fuegos ban sido clasificados en cuatro classes de acuerdo con el medio
que se utiliza para combatirlos. A su vez los extintores portAtiles se identifi-
can en relaci6n con los incendios que combaten.
El fuego clase A es el que se produce en materials tales como madera,
papel, textiles, desperdicios, etc. Se combat por enfriamiento con agua o so-
luciones que tengan un alto contenido de la misma. Se utilizan extintores de
agua, de soda-Acido y de espuma quimica.
Los fuegos classes B son los que produce las mezclas de vapores y aire so-
bre la superficie de liquidos inflamables, tales como gasoline, aceite, grasa,
pinturas y disolventes. En estas conflagraciones se utilizan extintores de espu-
ma, bi6xido de carbon, y quimico seco.
Los fuegos de la clase C son los que se original en o cerca de equipos
elctricos, donde no deben emplearse agents extintores conductores de elec-
tricidad. Para apagarlos se usan extintores de quimico seco, bi6xido de carbo-
no, gas inerte comprimido o liquid vaporizante. No se debe emplear espuma
ni agua ya que los dos son conductores y pueden exponer a la persona a un
riesgo de choque electrico grave.
Los fuegos de la clase D son los que se produce en metales combustibles
tales como magnesio, titanio, circonio, litio y sodio. En estos incendios se
necesitan agents extintores, equipos y t6cnicas especiales. En los incendios
de metales no deben usarse los extintores normales debido a que se corre el
riesgo de una reacci6n quimica entire el agent extintor y el metal que arde,
lo cual puede ocasionar una explosion o aumentar la intensidad del incendio.
Conozea los extintores y en caso necesario sepa nsarlos adecuadamentee
