Military Preparedness

Briefing Monday Night

Approximately 600 persons are ex-
pected to attend a briefing on the
"State of Preparedness of the Armed
Forces of the United States" at 7:30
p.m. Monday in the Balboa High
School Activities Building.
H. Clifton Wilson, president and
general manager of Cia. Panamefia
de Fuerza y Luz, and Richard W.
Haase, president of Sears Roebuck,
S.A., of Panama, will speak. Both
participated in a recent Joint Civilian
Orientation Conference conducted by
the Department of Defense.
The Department of Defense lists
five accomplishments through such
annual orientation conferences: Open-
ing the department to public inspec-
tion; generating more active interest
in, and appreciation of, the problems
of Federal Government; providing
opportunity for members of the
Armed Forces and private citizens to
know and understand each other
better; providing a medium for ex-
change of ideas; helping to explain
disposition of the defense dollar.
The recent conference gave approxi-
mately 75 men, representing a cross-

Christmas Mail
All Wrapped Up?
A reminder:
The deadline for Christmas surface
mail to the United States is Monday.
For airmail overseas (including
APOs), the deadline is December 10,
and for airmail destined for the
United States, December 15.
For "space available" mail to APOs
the deadline is today.
If you get your Christmas mail on
its way before these dates, you can be
reasonably sure it'll arrive in time
for Christmas. For things put in the
mail after the "deadline" dates, how-
ever, it's a gamble as to whether
they'll arrive by Christmas Day.

section of American business and
professional leadership, a first-hand
view of our Armed Forces. They were
briefed, show training demonstrations,
and "rubbed elbows" with all ranks
of the Armed Forces.
A Department of Defense spokes-
man said the conferences broaden
public understanding of the depart-
ment's problems and accomplish-
ments, its state of readiness, and its
ability to cope with any difficult situa-
tion which might arise anyplace in
the world.
Invitations to the briefing are being
issued by the Panama Canal Informa-
tion Office.

Presented to
Red Cross volunteers on the At-
lantic side were presented Hour Cer-
tificates and Service Bars at a recent
ceremony held by the Canal Zone
Chapter of the American Red Cross
at Cristobal YMCA.
James A. Quigley, American Red
Cross Field Director, Fort Gulick,
made the presentations to volunteers.
Certificates for 1,000 hours of serv-
ice were presented to Frances Berger
and Edna Coward.
Three 500-Hour Certificates went
to Evangeline Burgess, Sylvia Burton,
and Xenia Jones.

Control of Insecticides

Is Strict in Canal Zone

The potential danger of food and
insecticides being mixed-either by
careless handling during transporta-
tion or incorrect storage and use by
individuals-has been receiving inter-
national headlines. The most recent
cases have been in Colombia, Mexico,
and Florida. Health officials are
seriously concerned with both the loss
of life and serious illnesses involved.
Health Director Col. H. Haskell
Ziperman of the Canal Zone assures
all communities that surveillance is
maintained on the use of insecticides
within the Canal Zone. He empha-
sized that dangerous agricultural in-
secticides are not approved for use in
houses. All insect control operators
who are licensed to operate in the
Zone have received instructions and
guidance on the correct use of
The ban on insecticides which are
not on the approved Health Bureau
list is stated clearly, particularly para-
thion ("At6mico") or similar insecti-
cides which should be used only for
agriculture purposes and not in
quarters for local insect control.
Insect control operators who oper-
ate in the Canal Zone are licensed by
the Division of Sanitation of the
Health Bureau. Appropriate instruc-
tions are given to each operator upon
application for or renewal of licenses
each year. Each company has received
a telephone follow-up to insure that

only approved insecticides are utilized
in the spraying of Canal Zone estab-
lishments, thus avoiding any possi-
bility of a repetition in the Canal Zone
of these unfortunate accidents else-
All Canal Zone residents are urged
to require any pest exterminator to
show his permit before employment,
or to call the Division of Sanitation,
Balboa 2463 or Cristobal 2576, for
additional information on insect

Exhibit for Art Works
Continues to Dec. 11
An exhibit of art works by Sarah
Elva McBryde, which opened at the
Panama-North American Association
November 29, will continue until
December 11. The collection of water-
colors, oils, drawings, and combined
medium creations is devoted mostly
to the San Bias Indians and the
Chocoes of the Darien.
To better acquaint herself with the
subjects she paints, Miss McBryde,
who has lived in Central and South
America, spent 7 months on the San
Bias Islands with the natives. By
living with and observing the Indians
in their natural habitat, the talented
young artist has captured an authentic
interpretation of the Cuna in bright,
vivid simplicity.

Selective Service:

7 Student Deferments
(A number of questions are being
W asked about student deferments under
/-- the new draft law and related regula-
tions. The following explanations have
been provided by the Canal Zone Selec-
tive Service Headquarters in the form of
answers to the most frequent queries.)

normal progress toward my bacca-
laureate degree and the school has

A. Probably because you hadn't
requested a II-S. You must file a
written request with your Local
Board for a II-S classification before
it will be granted. If you haven't done
so, make such application at once by
supplying your Local Board with a
completed Selective Service System
Form 104 (obtainable at the Board
as well as most schools) or a letter
to that effect.

eligible for a I-S(C) deferment?

ought to hear Gamboa Retail Store

ing about his 5-week vacation in New
York City! Cleve Soper is busy making
plans for the Theatre Guild Xmas
Party . .
All of us at some time or other have
dealt with, or tried to deal with,
tongue twisters. One of the oldest is
"she sells sea shells" repeated three
times rapidly. Nowadays, as practiced
by announcers and other public
speakers, they get more complicated.
For instance: "the seething sea ceaseth
and thus sufficeth us"; or, to cure a lisp
try: "The sixth shieks, sixth sheep's
sick." But perhaps the worst is this
one a dentist gave to one of his
patients with new plates: "Amidst the
mists and coldest frosts, with barest
wrists and stoutest boasts, he thrusts
his fists against the posts, and still
insists he sees the ghosts."

Contributions from Readers:
The new Balboa Teen Club crowd
describes a "square" as a fellow who
buys insecticide when he hears the
Beatles are coming to town!
Many modern doctors give shock
treatments-but they call them "bills".
The way things are going nowadays,
it takes a lot of optimism even to be
a pessimist! ...
Recent scientific research proves
that men can talk as long and as often
as women, but men need a topic to
talk about!! (Aw, c'mon, girls-we're
just joking.)
The honeymoon is definitely over
when he tells her she's a lousy house-
keeper, instead of writing poems to
her in the dust ..
Then there's the one of the wife
who was nagging her husband for not
being a success in business. His reply
was, "Well, I'm not a failure! I started
at the bottom-and liked it there!"

The Distinguished Rifleman Award of the National Rifle Association is proudly
held by Elmer J. Kent, Jr., right, the first Junior to qualify for this award in

Elmer Kent, Jr., Wins

Another Rifle Award

Elmert J. Kent, Jr., 16, has done
it again. This time he's bested his own
rifle course record and has been
awarded the Distinguished Rifleman
Award by the National Rifle Associa-
tion upon completion of the 50-yard
small bore rifle course. In June of
this year he was awarded the Dis-
tinguished Rifleman Award for the
50-foot course.
This is the first time a Junior in the
Canal Zone has qualified for the Dis-
tinguished Rifleman Award for the
50-yard course. In fact, few adults
have qualified in the Zone for this
To obtain the Distinguished Rifle-
man Award for the 50-yard course it

400. The four positions must be shot
consecutively on the same day. Posi-

By Emily J. Price
The memoirs of Stalin's daughter
have a morbid fascination for Western
readers. That a man so powerful and
ruthless could have had a family life
at all is almost unbelievable and the
picture which emerges from Svetlana
Alliluyeva's Twenty Letters to a
Friend is a startling one. The grow-
ing child's realization that her affec-
tionate father is becoming more and
more a figure of terror and the change
in the man himself all come through
very clearly. This is a poignant bit of
Peter De Vries, in The Vale of
Laughter, has a clown for a hero. Joe
Sandwich is a wise cracker, a prac-
tical joker, and collects funny names.
He names his baby Hamilton. Beneath
De Vries' humor is a stratum of wist-
ful, serious thought. This novel is in
fact a tragedy but you'll hardly notice
it for laughing.
The Maze Mayer by Michael Ayr-
ton is a retelling of the Greek myth
of Daedalus. A clever craftsman and
sculptor, Daedalus caused the death
of his nephew in an envious rage at
his success as an inventor. In prison,
Daedalus made wings of feathers and
wax for himself and his son Icarus.
Unfortunately Icarus flew too close
to the sun. This is a well written

November Retirees

Fourteen Panama Canal employees
received their retirement certificates
from the Canal organization during
November. One, Hubert L. Francis,
water meter clerk in the Maintenance
Division on the Atlantic side of the
Isthmus, had more than 40 years'
Canal service and three employees
had over 30 years' service. The latter
were Capt. Anthony J. Zablocki, tow-
boat master, Navigation Division, Pa-
cific side; Frederick C. Willoughby,
foreman (mechanical-power station),
Electrical Division, Pacific side; and
Joseph McKenzie, furnaceman, In-
dustrial Division, Atlantic side.
The employees who retired last
month, their positions, and their places
of employment, together with their
years of service, are as follows:
Joseph McKenzie, Furnaceman, In-
dustrial Division, Atlantic side: 33
years, 10 months, 2 days.
Leonard N. Martin, Guard Supervisor,
Locks Division, Pacific side: 15
years, 7 months, 17 days.
Howard E. Robison, Leader Lock
Operator (Machinist), Locks Divi-
sion, Pacific side: 26 years, 3
months, 9 days.
Mrs. Winnifred E. Seeley, Public
Health Nurse, Division of Preven-
tive Medicine, Pacific side: 29
years, 11 months, 17 days.

York, it tells about a girl's adolescent
years, about her parents, her first love,
her struggle to understand life in
general and her place in the world.
The characters are memorable, espe-
cially the father, a doctor whose prac-
tice is disintegrating, the stern and
frustrated mother, the beautiful older
sister. The town itself is vividly
realized. Altogether a satisfactory
reading experience.
Murder Fantastical is a good mys-
tery by Patricia Moyes. Chief Inspec-
tor Henry Tibbett of Scotland Yard
goes down in the country to solve this
one and becomes entangled with a
delightful but eccentric family. There
is plenty of humor mixed in with the
dire deeds and the plot will keep you
guessing to the end.

The secret of success is to make
yourself valuable.

A kid that is proud of home doesn't
want to roam.

The following employees are retir-
ing in December and January, but
are leaving the Isthmus early and re-
ceived their retirement certificates last

Christmas is closer than you think! Just 8 days from today Santa Claus will
pay his first visit to the Canal Zone to check on the lists of all good boys and
girls, and this scene probably will be repeated dozens of times as parents
bring their youngsters to call on Santa. Canal Zone Police Officer Robert
E. McBride will play Santa Claus this year, as he did in 1966. Santa Claus
will be at the Balboa annex men's wear store on 2 Saturdays, December 9,
and December 16, from 9 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 4 p.m.

Esta es la cuarta de una series de
discusiones sobre nutricidn que llev6 a
cabo la Sra. Shirley O. Dean, especialista
en nutrici6n de Salubridad Ptiblica en la
Division de Medicina Preventiva. Tam-
bien enseia nutricidn en la Universidad
de la Zona del Canal.
Los Cuatro Grupos BAsicos de Ali-
mentos fueron presentados anterior-
mente y ahora estamos analizando de-
talladamente cada uno de los grupos.
El grupo de las carnes proporciona
una gran cantidad de nutrimentos que
contribuyen a enriquecer los requisi-
tes alimenticios del dia:
1. Protein
para crear, mantener y reparar
todos los tejidos del cuerpo
para ayudar en la formaci6n
de hormones y enzimas del
para ayudar a resistir las enfer-
para proporcionar energia
2. Grasa
para proporcionar energia para
el trabajo y el juego
para agregar sabor y calidad es-
table a las comidas diarias
para llevar vitamins solubles en
3. Hierro
para ayudar a former la hemo-
globina, la substancia vital en
las celulas rojas de la sangre,
que Ileva oxigeno a todos los
tejidos del cuerpo
4. Niacina
para ayudar al cuerpo a liberar
la energia de las comidas
para ayudar en la funci6n nor-
mal de los sistemas nervioso y
para mantener sanos los vasos
5. Tiamina
para ayudar al cuerpo a liberar
la energia de los alimentos
para auxiliar el funcionamiento
normal de los sistemas nervio-
so y digestive
para ayudar a regular el apetito
Todos los cinco nutrimentos enun-
ciados arriba son esenciales, porque
el cuerpo no los produce. Debemos
proveer al cuerpo con estas materials
primas comiendo alimentos apropia-
dos todos los dias. De estos nutrimen-
tos, el hierro y la protein, por su
importancia, merecen una menci6n
Cada c6lula del cuerpo, incluyendo
los huesos y dientes, estA bAsicamen-
te formada por proteins. La protein
se necesita para las secreciones cor-
porales y fluidos tales como las enzi-
mas, hormones, anticuerpos y la san-
gre. Cuando se forma un tejido nue-
vo, como en el caso de un nifio en
crecimiento, una mujer en estado de
gravidez, o la cicatrizaci6n de una
herida en cualquier parte del cuerpo,
es cuando mAs se necesita de la pro-
teina. Sin ella no puede haber desa-
Pero asln para el adulto normal y
sano, la protein es esencial. Nuestro

la misma manera como se mantiene

Todos los alimentos mencionados
hasta ahora son de origen animal. La
protein de origen animal es la de mAs
alta calidad por lo que debe star pre-
sente en cada comida. Los que tienen
el hAbito de saltarse las comidas estAn
quebrantando las reglas de la salud y
estAn cometiendo una injusticia con
ellos mismos. Recordando todos los
alimentos tanto los de origen animal
mencionados arriba como tambi6n la
leche y sus derivados que aparecie-
ron en la column anterior, es bien
fAcil ingerir proteinas de origen ani-
mal en cada comida.
El presupuesto para las comidas
puede no ser necesariamente alto. Se
puede substituir estas carnes caras por
otras comidas. Los frijoles y guisantes
secos, las lentejas y la mantequilla de
mani son alimentos vegetables que con-
tienen una considerable cantidad de
proteinas, pero no de tan alta calidad
como las de origen animal.
Para que el cuerpo las utilice ple-
namente deben combinarse con pro-
teinas de origen animal.
A traves del tiempo, el hombre ha
desarrollado instintivamente este pa-
tr6n: las arvejas se cocinan con peda-
citos de jam6n; las lentejas, con peda-
citos de came; los porotos, con troci-
tos de puerco o con arroz y camaro-
nes. Y cuando se sirven estas comidas,
comemos porciones mayores que
cuando comemos came.
Asi pues, no se disculpen por brin-
dar una comida con frijoles. iDisfrute
de ellos! Son muy saludables.
Este siempre seguro de tener algo
de came, leche o queso en cualquier
comida. Y haga que los nifios coman
emparedados de mantequilla de mani
todos los dias de Dios; un vaso de
leche y ese emparedado les darin
las proteinas que necesitan.
