CFC Efforts Lauded


By Governor Leber
Gov. W. P. Leber has commended Canal employees for their work
and contributions that resulted in a highly successful 1969 Combined
Federal Campaign.
The Governor said: "I am proud of the response of the men and
women of the Panama Canal organization during the Combined
Federal Campaign.
"High standards are maintained by the Canal organization em-
ployees when manning their jobs as part of the Canal operations.
These same high standards are incorporated in their daily lives and
in the manner they meet their responsibilities toward community
activities.
"This year the Canal organization's goal was $160,350. We went
over the top with 110 percent a week before the close of the campaign
and before all contributions were tallied.
"As an example of the spirit of giving in the Canal organization,
one bureau achieved the outstanding accomplishment of meeting and
surpassing its assigned goal the first day of the campaign. That same
bureau registered 174.7 percent of its goal a week before the
campaign ended.
"In behalf of the participating agencies of the Canal Zone United
Fund and the International Service Agencies, I thank each of you
for your time, efforts and generous contributions. Another highly
successful campaign has ended with a most gratifying response."



Those Sniffles


Confirmed as Flu


Have you ached, had fever, sniffles,
and a cough within the past few
weeks?
If the answer is yes, you are one
of approximately 2,000 persons in
the Canal Zone who have been fellow
sufferers of what has now been iden-
tified as an A-2 strain of influenza.
Word has been received from the
Middle America Research Unit that
identification came after they iso-
lated the virus from several cases of
this disease. This virus is probably
related to the recently isolated A-2
Hong Kong strain of influenza virus
which in recent months has been
causing widespread outbreaks in the
Far East.
Information received from the
Communicable Disease Center in
Atlanta, Ga., indicates that the epi-
demic, which is now tapering off on
the Isthmus, is the first reported such
epidemic of this disease in the
western hemisphere. Normally, in-
fluenza epidemics occur first in the
United States and then later in
Panama.
The reason for the epidemic strik-
ing Panama first probably is related
to its transmission by individuals
with the disease traveling from the
Far East to Panama, said Col. H. H.
Ziperman, Director of the Panama
Canal's Health Bureau. It should be
noted, he said, that only sporadic
cases of influenza have so far been
reported in the United States.
There is frequently a small sec-
ondary wave of influenza approxi-
mately 2 weeks after the primary
wave has struck. It is possible that
such a secondary wave will hit people
on the Isthmus within the next week
or so.

SCN TO GIVE LIVE
ELECTION RETURNS
Live coverage of U.S. election re-
turns will be given on SCN radio,
790 and 1420 on the dial, starting at
7 p.m. November 5.
Wire service and other reports will
be compiled for reports on SCN tele-
vision, channels 8 and 10, beginning
at 9:30 p.m. that night.


At present, available vaccines
against influenza do not contain the
A-2 strain, which means that the
vaccine now available in the Canal
Zone is not effective against this
disease. Indications are that a new
influenza vaccine should be available
shortly. When it does become avail-
able, it will be provided to residents
of the Canal Zone as needed.

service in the Canal Zone.
In addition to directing the JWB
Armed Services Center, Mrs. Green-
wood will provide services to military
personnel and their dependents in
the Canal Zone on behalf of the
United Service Organizations, Inc.
(USO).
These services include the social
and recreational programs generally
found in USO operations elsewhere,
but there is special emphasis here
upon a variety of personal services,
securing off-base housing, orienta-
tion tours for newcomers, cultural,
and educational activities. Highlights
of the Center's activities include

5:30 p.m.; Coco Solo Post Office,

The official ballot of the Pacific
Civic Council instructs the voter to
vote for not more than five candi-
dates. The three candidates receiv-
ing the largest number of votes will
be declared elected for 2-year terms,
while the three candidates receiving
the next largest number of votes will
be elected for 1 year as alternates.

sented on the Council in the next
year by "holdover" members, newly
elected members and alternates.

candidates and voters from Cris-
tobal-Margarita-Brazos Heights will

Gatun Spillway

Gates Open Ist

Time This Year


The problem of storing enough

became a problem of having too
much water as heavy rains fell over
S, most of the Isthmus last week.

Opened for the first time this
' year Friday and spilling continued
\ throughout the weekend with as
S' many as four gates opened at one
Time. With four gates open, a maxi-
mum of 49,000 cubic feet of water
S' was discharged from the lake each
Second.
SOpening of the Gatun Spillway
gates usually comes much earlier in
-, "the rainy season. Last year they were
opened for the first time to discharge
So water at the end of June, which was
.. f earlier than usual.
SSome of the heaviest rains fell
SSunday, October 27, when a storm
dropped 3 inches of rain at Gatun

minutes. The total rainfall at that
P c a station during the 24-hour period
ending at 8 a.m. Monday totaled
-.. 4.87 inches. Balbda Heights reported
2.37 inches.
The level of Gatun rose to 86.81

THE PANAMA CANAL SPILLWAY


November 1, 1968


-i -- .


Upon completion of more than 45 years at sea, Capt. Arthur Hunter Keppel
Cooke, master of the Furness Withy's "Loch Ryan," receives a Panama
Canal honorary marine license from Capt. Andrew Stohrer, Balboa Port
Captain as he makes his last transit of the Canal prior to retirement. Cap-
tain Cooke began his long seagoing career in 1922 as an apprentice with
Furness Withy Co. and with the exception of service with the Royal Navy
Reserve during World War II, has been with that company ever since.
His first command was on the "Pacific Ranger." He has been in command
of the "Loch Ryan" since 1958.

social insects, some ants live in com-
munities which have startling and
grotesque similarities to human com-
munities. Much has been discovered
about ant life in the past 10 years
and it is comforting to learn that
some ants are lazy and shiftless and
not eternally industrious.
A combination of fantasy and
science fiction is Michael Frayn's
A Very Private Life. It's a picture of
a Utopia in the distant future with
a heroine who lives in a windowless
house, cared for by electronic devices,
full of sweet air and clean thoughts,
under the influence of happy pills.
One day the pills wear off and what
happens then is the plot of the story.
The Green Gauntlet by R. F. Del-
derfield is a novel about a little Eng-
lish valley and the families who live
there. Their peaceful rural life is
upset by World War II and the
threatened Nazi invasion. Sturdy
characters make this an absorbing
story.
Magnificent photographs fill a
handsome new book Canada by
Peter Varley and Kildare Dobbs.
From Nova Scotia to British Colum-
bia each of the provinces is celebrated
with typical shots of cities, forests,
mountains, and rivers, showing the

All Canada lovers will enjoy this.
The Vivero Letter is a quick-
moving adventure story which travels
from London to Devonshire to Quin-

ure is the magnet which attracts a

add to the action.

U.S. School To Honor


Memory of C.Z. Youth


The memory of Stephen Thomas
Smith, the Gamboa boy who was
one of the heroes during the tragic
fire on aboard the African Star last
March, is to be perpetuated by an
award to be given during graduation
exercises at Calhoon MEBA Enagi-
neering School of Baltimore, Md.
Stephen, who was an honor student,
would have been a member of the
next graduating class.
He was on board the African Star
as an apprentice engineer from Cal-
hoon MEBA Engineering School last
March on a voyage that would have
taken the vessel to Australia. On
March 16 the vessel was proceeding
down the Mississippi when it was
hit by two oil barges that carried
fuel that had a low flash point.
Within 45 seconds the African Star
was engulfed in flames.
Stephen carried on with his duties
in the engineroom and then heroi-
cally came to others assistance until
persuaded by one of the ship's officers
to abandon ship. Together they dived
overboard and, although Stephen had
sustained a head injury, were swim-
ming toward shore when Stephen
disappeared underwater.
Stephen, who was 19, was a son
of Mr. and Mrs. George F. Smith
of Gamboa.
A letter to his parents from Roy
A. Luebbe, Director of Calhoon
MEBA Engineering School, informed
them that October 27 the school
held its first graduation exercises. In
memory of Stephen, for the first time
the Stephen Thomas Smith Award

Presented to that student who
in his 2 years of training has dem-

Stephen Smith was graduated from
Balboa High School in the Class of

at the time of his death.

Well,
It seems the moron jokes a couple
of weeks back went over rather well,
because two of them (morons, that
is) were in here a little while ago and
they left a few examples of some of
the Loony Laws to be found in some
Sof the States of the United States,
even in this enlightened age. We
feel duty-bound to print a few of
them to keep peace with our insen-
sate mentos (Duhhhh, wha duz dat
meant?):
The law of Shawnee, Okla., de-
fines a nuisance as follows: "When
three or more dogs congregate on
any private property without the con-
sent of the owner or occupant and
annoy such owner or occupant."
Ohio General Code, Title II, Sec-
tion 6281. provides that: "A person
assaulted and lynched by a mob may
recover, from. the county wherein
such assault is made, a sum not to
exceed five hundred dollars."
Waterloo, Neb., has a law passed
in 1910 which reads: "No barber in
this town, under penalty of fine, shall
eat onions between 7 a.m. and 7
p.m.
Kansas has a law on its books
which states: "When two trains

sit-in.


St. Luke's Annual Bazaar

To Be Held Tomorrow


St. Luke's annual Christmas Bazaar
will be held at the Cathedral Center
in Ancon tomorrow from 9 a.m. to
4:30 p.m. The bazaar is sponsored by
organizations of the Cathedral and
proceeds will go for church work.
The Cathedral Center will be
decked out in holiday attire, reminis-
cent of the Camelot motif. Four of
Panama's leading stores-Mercurio
Jewelers, Helen's Linen Shop, F6lix
Maduro, S.A., and Henco, S.A.-will
have booths where shoppers may
buy Christmas gifts. There will be
jewelry, linens, cosmetics, ladies'
clothing, toys, silver, crystal, and
many other novelties for sale.
The five women's guilds of the
Cathedral have prepared many at-
tractive Christmas decorations, holi-


day tablecloths, aprons, candles,
cards, and trees. Homemade food,
especially pastries, cakes, and cookies
will be sold at the Pastry Shelf booth.
Hot dogs and sodas will be served.
Isthmian craftsmen will sell their
wares at several of the booths. Mrs.
Theodore Hans will have a large
selection of the finest molas from
San Blas. Arthur Mokray will have
at least 50 of his artistic bateas and
Andrew Asnesen, also will have
bateas for sale. Mrs. Robert Merrill,
Mrs. Neville Harte, and Mrs. Aldon
Fulcher will represent the Gem and
Mineral Society. Pottery from La
Arena also will be sold.
There will be valuable door prizes
donated by Panama merchants. Park-
ing space will be available.


approach each other at a crossing,
they shall both come to a full stop,
and neither shall start up until the
other has gone."
But perhaps the greatest example
of short-sightedness on the part of
the State solons of yesteryear may
be found in Section 1 of the Ten-
nessee Act which incorporates the
town of Ripley, in Lauderdale
County, Tenn.:
"The boundaries of said town of
Ripley shall be as follows: Beginning
at a stake in the west boundary lines
of the present limits of the old town
. . then, north eighty-five degrees
and east to a blackgum tree marked
with a cross and with mistletoe on
top, and with a bluebird sitting in
a limb which tree is a short distance
east of Ed Johnson's horse lot . ."
That has to be the oldest bluebird
in the whole world, friends. ...
Conversation overheard at the
Canal Zone College:
"Hey, Dum-Dum, did you make
the debating team?"
"N-n-n-n-no. They s-s-s-s-said I
w-w-w-w-asn't t-t-t-all enough."
Peggy Acker and Marilyn Whaley,
two of the cutest schoolmarms in
town, gave us some examples of
things you find out when grading
elementary school papers:
Mata Hari means suicide in Japan-
ese.
An executive is the man who puts
murderers to death.
When a man is married to one
woman it is called monotony.
An aviary is the place where avia-
tors sleep.
Have you seen Steve Bissell's yellow
dress shirt? Snazzy, man . and
I hear that Bob Eggleston got a pet
to keep around the house-a Dober-
man. (Better check those laws we
printed, Bob.)
We're sorry to hear that Marie
Herblin will be leaving soon. We'll
miss her charming smile and helpful
ways whenever we have business at
Transportation. On the other hand,
we're glad to hear that Pete Brin-
dley will be around a while longer
than originally expected due to an
assignment change.
Balboa residents did a double take
last week when Victor Herr (Herr
Doktor to you), drove up to the
Balboa Post Office in his station
wagon with a coffin resting cozily in
the back. It turned out that Vic
wasn't disposing of a body-he was
delivering props for some Halloween
shenanigans.
SOGGY DOUGHNUT AWARD:
To Zander Krowitz for missing
coffeebreak yesterday for the first
time this year.
At last count, the comments were
coming in fast and furious in favor
of the Doggie Comfort Station we
showed you last week. If you have
a comment, send it along. Results
will be given next week.

C.Z. Residents

Urged To Keep

Quarters Neat
Occupants of Panama Canal mul-
tiple family quarters are reminded
that they are responsible for the gen-
eral cleaning of stairs and maintain-
ing a neat appearance of their
hallway and basement areas. Hous-
ing personnel are instructed to see
to it that this responsibility is not
neglected.
Many occupants devote consider-
able time and effort in maintaining
their hallways clean and attractive.
Some have decorated the hallways
with small plants and this is en-
couraged as long as normal safety
precautions are not violated.
Unsightly conditions, however, are
in evidence in many hallways and
public basement areas in multiple
family quarters. Apartment entrance
doors and hallway walls and door
facings are often fingermarked or
defaced by children. Some occupants
are careless in carrying out garbage
to the containers, spilling waste in
hallways and basements. Accumula-
tion of dust and cobwebs and un-
sanitary conditions due to uncon-
trolled pets are unacceptable.
Occupants should arrange among
themselves a regular schedule where-
by the cleaning of these areas is
shared equally. Where occupants are
unable to agree on a cleaning sched-
ule, the Housing Office will establish
one.
Each occupant's cleaning respon-
sibility includes all hallway area from
top of stairs to hallway entrance, in-
cluding adjacent landings and public
area in basement regardless of the
apartment occupied.

With Diane Johnson and Lawra-
son Springwell starring as a cele-
brating married couple, "Anniversary
Waltz," a Theatre Guild comedy hit,
opened last night at the Ancon Play-
house for nine performances through
November 9.
"Anniversary Waltz" mirthfully
relates a series of surprising upsets
in the marital life of a more-or-less
average American family. The scene
is set in the home of a happily
married couple who think they have
reason to congratulate themselves
on their 15th anniversary-until the
ceiling of their life together nearly
caves in.
Jennie Veno and Rudi Crespo are
cast as the adolescent children with
an irrepressible habit of having
whatever is on their minds also on
their tongues.
Evelyn L. Farbman and Victor
G. Canel are the bickering, bellow-
ing but cheerful and affectionate
parents of the wife. Arthur "Artie"
Pollack is cast as the husband's irri-
tated law partner and Norene
Hughes as a four-times divorcee.
Jacqui Gold appears as Millie, the
housemaid; Harry Raymond and
Mickey G. Morgan as TV repairmen;
and Ken Bertsch as a handyman.
Al Johnson is the director.
Seat reservations may be made by
telephoning the Ancon Playhouse box
office, Balboa 3786 between 7 and
9 p.m. each night.


A Word of Caution


From Health Bureau


There is plenty of talk these days
about drugs and drug users. Maga-
zines, movies, television, and the
newspapers are full of it. While some
of it is fact, much of it is pure fiction
written in such way as to capture an
audience.
Life with drugs is not exciting and
interesting, as some may think. It is
dull, degrading, and debilitating.
Some people believe only the stupid
or uneducated become dependent on
drugs. The truth is that some drug
users and abusers have above aver-
age intelligence and may be well
educated. Young people are par-
ticularly vulnerable either through
their desire to experiment or through
an emotional problem associated with
growing up.
Usually they are introduced to
drugs by friends, not by "pushers."
It's not easy to refuse a favor or a
dare from a friend. It is even harder
to resist group pressure where you
are the only holdout.
Among the drugs we refer to is
marijuana. Recent overly dramatized
material in the newspapers and on
television seems to indicate that it
causes no harmful effects. This is not


Jazz Concert

To Be Given

At JWB Nov. 7
The George Duke Trio will be
presented in a concert of classical
jazz, under the sponsorship of the
Music Society of Panama, Novem-
ber 7, at 8:15 p.m. at the Jewish
Welfare Board Armed Forces Service
Center (JWB) in Balboa.
The members of the trio are George
Duke, pianist; Alan Cecchi, drum-
mer; and John Heard, bass. Each
musician is master of his instrument
and George Duke, the trio's leader,
is a Doctor in Music. He received
his doctorate at San Francisco State
College.
The trio's program will include
works by Jobim, Rogers and Hart,
Carpenter, Bacharach, Porter and
the trio's own works.
A limited number of individual
tickets for this performance are avail-
able at the Jewish Welfare Board
Center (JWB) at $3. Enlisted per-
sonnel will be admitted free, but
must call the JWB for advance re-


true. The impression has been created
that virtually nothing is known about
marijuana and that no one should
oppose its use unless he can provide
clear and scientific proof that it is
harmful. This is false and contradicts
standard pharmacological practice.
Both science and the law agree
that the public interest has strict
requirements on this point. The
hazards of a drug must be fully eva-
luated and its safety established
before it is released for public use.
Generations of experience have
shown that there is no such thing as
a drug which is both free of risk and
pharmacologically active. The issue
always is how do the possibilities of
harm weigh against the potential
benefits.
Marijuana is very active pharma-
cologically. One or two marijuana
cigarettes are enough to produce
widespread autonomic reactions with
changes in pupil size, heart rate,
blood pressure, and bladder function.
Changes in brain waves have been
recorded by the electroencephalo-
gram. The mental effects of use
of marijuana are very marked. Emo-
tional balance is disturbed and waves
of euphoria (sense of well being) are
often interspersed with phases of anx-
iety. In addition, paranoid episodes
are frequent and can give rise to
disturbances of conduct. Volition and
initiative are impaired and a degree
of calm lassitude tends to follow.
Marijuana has been called a weak
hallucinogen. It is better described
as a powerful hallucinogen in diluted
form.
Are there dangers associated with
marijuana use? Yes. The smoking of
a single marijuana cigarette has been
known to precipitate a psychotic
episode. Heavy use can produce
visual distortions, false beliefs, and
hallucinations. The intellectual and
sensory alterations can lead to acci-
dents, aggressive, or anti-social acts.
Is marijuana addicting? It does not
lead to physical dependence. Typi-
cally, it is used periodically. Occasion-
ally an individual becomes emotion-
ally dependent upon the drug and
seeks its use on a regular basis.
Although its use in schools and col-
leges seems to be increasing, most
students who do so use it only a few
times before giving it up.
The haphazard or experimented
use of marijuana by people unused


servations. Further information may to or untrained in its effects can lead
be obtained by telephoning Balboa to problems for the user. Avoid these
1972. problems. Don't experiment.

Felicitaciones del Gobernador


Por Exito Rotundo de la CFC


El Gobernador W. P. Leber ha felicitado
a los empleados del Canal por sus esfuerzos
y contribuciones, que culminaron con una
Campaiia Federal Combinada de 1969 suma-
mente exitosa.
El Gobernador declar6: "Me enorgullezco
de la manera como los hombres y mujeres de
la empresa del Canal de Panama respondie-
ron durante la Campafia Federal Combinada.
"Los empleados del Canal de Panama
ponen gran interns en sus trabajos en la parte
que les toca de la operaci6n del Canal. Ese
mismo interns es el que demuestran en sus
vidas diarias en lo que toca a sus responsa-
bilidades con respect a la comunidad.
"La meta de este afio para la empresa del
Canal era de $160.350. Sobrepasamos esa


marca en un 110 por ciento una semana antes
de que cerrara la campafia y antes de que
todas las contribuciones fueran registradas.
"Como muestra del espiritu altruista que
existe en la empresa del Canal, estA una di-
recci6n que logr6 la sobresaliente hazafia de
alcanzar y sobrepasar su meta el primer dia
de la campafia. Esa direcci6n registry un
174.7 por ciento de su meta una semana antes
de que la campafia terminara.
"A nombre de las agencies que participan
en el Fondo Unido de la Zona del Canal y
de las Agencias Internacionales de Servicio,
doy las gracias a cada uno de ustedes por su
tiempo, sus esfuerzos y generosas contribu-
ciones. Otra muy exitosa campafa acaba de
terminar con los resultados mas halagadores."

La semana del 3 al 6 de noviem-
bre ha sido designada en Rainbow

sonas e instituciones que hicieron po-
sible la fundaci6n de la guarderia in-
fantil de esa poblaci6n del AtlAntico

a muchas madres dedicarse a otras
labores sabiendo que sus hijos son
bien atendidos en un lugar donde se
les brindan recreaciones planeadas y
educativas, a la vez que alimentos
bien balanceados.
H6 aqui algunas de las activida-
des programadas para la Semana de
la Guarderia Infantil.

Lluvias en el Canal


El problema de almacenar sufi-
ciente agua para operar el Canal se
convirti6 de repente en uno de no
saber qu6 hacer con el agua, cuando
empezaron a caer fuertes lluvias
sobre la mayor parte del Istmo du-
rante la semana pasada.
Las puertas del Vertedero de
Gatin fueron abiertas por primera
vez este aio el viernes y se continue
desaguando durante el fin de sema-
na, habiendo ocasiones en que se
tuvo abiertas cuatro puertas a la vez.
Con cuatro puertas abiertas el lago
se desagua a raz6n de 49.000 pies
cbicos de agua por segundo, como
maximo.
Generalmente, las puertas del
Vertedero de Gatuin son abiertas
much mas temprano, durante la es-
taci6n lluviosa. El afio pasado fueron
abiertas por primera vez a finales de
junior, lo cual era mAs temprano que
lo normal.
Algunas de las lluvias mas fuertes
cayeron el domingo, 27 de octubre,
cuando una tormenta caus6 una pre-
cipitaci6n de 3Yz pulgadas de lluvia
en Gat6n, durante un period de


2 horas 15 minutes. El total de llu-
via en esa estaci6n durante las 24
horas que terminaron a las 8 a.m.
del lunes, fue de 4.87 pulgadas.
Balboa Heights, registry 2.37 pul-
gadas.
El nivel del Lago Gatin subi6 a
86.81 pies, antes de que comenzara
el desagiie y permaneci6 en 86.60
pies, durante el lunes cuando estu-
vieron abiertas dos puertas del ver-
tedero. El Lago Madden subi6 2
pies, de 236.73 a 238.69 pies, duran-
te el fin de semana.

Del Lejano Oriente Viene


Actual Epidemia de Gripe


(Ha tenido usted malestares, fie-
bre, moqueo y tos durante las l6timas
semanas?
Si la respuesta es afirmativa, usted
es una de aproximadamente 2.000
personas en la Zona del Canal que
han sido compafieros de sufrimiento
de lo que hasta ahora ha sido iden-
tificado como un tipo de trancazo
A-2.
El Institute de Investigaci6n de
la America Central ha informado que
la identificaci6n se produjo despu6s
de haber aislado el virus de various
casos de esta enfermedad. Este virus
estA probablemente relacionado con
el reciente virus aislado del tipo A-2
de influenza Hong Kong que en
meses recientes ha estado causando
brotes generals en el Lejano Oriente.
Informaci6n recibida del Centro
de Enfermedades Comunicables de
Atlanta, Georgia, indica que la epi-
demia, que ahora esta disminuyendo
en el Istmo, es la primera de esta
enfermedad que se report en el he-
misferio occidental. Normalmente,
las epidemias de gripe ocurren pri-
mero en los Estados Unidos y luego
en Panama.


La raz6n por ]a cual la epidemia
ha azotado a PanamA primero es pro-
bablemente por el hecho de que per-
sonas que viajan del Lejano Oriente
a PanamA hayan transmitido la en-
fernedad, dijo el Coronel H. H.
Ziperman, Director de Salubridad
del Canal de PanamA. Deberia no-
tarse, dijo, que solamente casos es-
porAdicos de gripe han sido repor-
tados hasta ahora en los Estados
Unidos.
Hay frecuentemente una pequefia
ola secundaria de gripe aproximada-
mente 2 semanas despubs que la pri-
mera ola ha azotado. Es possible que
tal ola secundaria alcance a los habi-
tantes del Istmo dentro de la pr6xima
semana o algo asi.
Las vacunas disponibles actual-
mente contra la gripe no contienen
el tipo A-2, lo cual significa que la
vacuna ahora disponible en la Zona
del Canal no es efectiva contra esta
enfermedad. Las indicaciones son
que una nueva vacuna contra el tran-
cazo deberA estar disponible dentro
de poco. Cuando asi sea, serA sumi-
nistrada a los residents de ]a Zona
del Canal segin las necesidades.

Roy Watson, vicepresidente del
Consejo Civico de Rainbow City y
tambien Coordinador de la Junta de
Recreaci6n de Adultos, ha designado
a Victor H. Archbold, president de
la Liga Femenina de Softball del
Atlantico, para que dirija la Liga
Divisional de Rainbow City.
Esta liga ha sido una de las mAs

los Estados Unidos, y todas las agen-

mando al tel6fono Crist6bal 3-2441
o asistiendo a la reuni6n que tendra
lugar el viernes 8 de noviembre a las
7 de la noche en el Centro Civico de

El Gobierno brasileiio ha hecho los
arreglos necesarios para vender su
fdhrica national de motors, que ha
venido utilizdndose como plant para
el montaje de camiones, a la compa-
iiia italiana Alfa-Romeo, en una can-
tidad que se calcula en $36 millones.


Muy buenos dias, muy buenas
tardes . o muy buenas noches, es-
timadisimos lectores. (El saludo de-
pende de la hora del dia en que nos
esten leyendo). Antes que nada nues-
tro mas sincere agradecimiento por
leer las cuartillas que garrapateamos.
Vamos a ver si esta vez podemos en-
tretenerlos en lugar de aburrirlos.

Y como esta column es para todos
los gustos, masculinos y femeninos,
vamos a presentar algo que creemos
del agrado de la mayoria de las in-
tegrantes del bello sexo que nos hon-
ran con su atenci6n. Y es la manera
de hacer cocaditas de colors:
INGREDIENTS
1 coco, sin la corteza oscura, rallado.
2 tazas de azacar granulada.
1 cucharada de maizena.
Colorante vegetal al gusto.
Prepare un almibar con el azucar
y media taza de agua.
Apenas empiece a espesar el almi-
bar, agregue el coco rallado, sin la
corteza osoura (la masa debe ser
blanca), y revuelva constantemente
mientras cocaine a fuego moderado.
Cuando empiece a despegar de los
lados de la olla, afiada la maizena,
continue revolviendo y afiada el colo-
rante. Dos o 3 minutes mAs de coci-
miento dejarin la cocada en punto.
Vacie sobre una mesa esmaltada,
de formica o mArmol, untada de gra-
sa vegetal o rociada con maizena.
Corte las cocaditas.
Estas cocaditas se pueden adornar
con grajeas plateadas, nomeolvides,
etc.


NOTA: Para aquellas lectoras que
se hayan imaginado que nos volvi-
mos experts en artes culinarias, la
siguiente aclaraci6n. La receta ante-
rior la tomamos del libro "El Arte de
Cocinar", de la Profesora Amparo
M. de Pazmiiio. Asi que las gracias
denselas a ella.

Los que llaman a la oficina del
Profesor Oscar Suman Carrillo, su-
pervisor de Educaci6n Fisica para las
Escuelas Latinoamericanas de la

en ingles o en castellano, reciben una
sorpresa sumamente agradable: les
contest una de las voices mas deli-
ciosas que se escuchan por los tel6-
fonos de la Zona del Canal. Perte-
nece a la Sra. Doris Todd de Roberts,
quien reside en Villa CAceres, ciudad
de PanamA.

Y ya que andamos por los predios
de la Educaci6n Fisica, les diremos
que Ram6n Reyes, Profesor de edu-
caci6n fisica en la Escuela Secun-
daria de Balboa y miembro del Equi-
po Olimpico de Baloncesto de Pa-
nama, que tan valiente demostraci6n
ha ofrecido en la Ciudad de Mexico,
se convirti6 en padre por tercera vez,
mientras estaba en la gran Ciudad
de los Palacios.

El orgulloso papA y su esposa,
Sra. Laura Salisbury de Reyes ya
habian convenido en que si era var6n
se Ilamaria Daniel Luis. La raz6n
es que los esposos Reyes quieren
que sus hijos tengan nombres que
suenen bien en ingl4s y castellano.
Alguien, muy allegado a los esposos
Reyes, al ser preguntado sobre si
este era el segundo o el tercer vas-
tago de la familiar, contest: el ilti-
mo. Parece que Laura y Ram6n estin
contents con los tres que tienen
ahora. Los otros dos son dos pre-
ciosas criaturas, bastante traviesas
tambi6n, Ram6n Paulo, de 4 afios, y
M6nica Ruth, de 3.


Por los lados de Presupuesto y
Tarifas, de la Contraloria del Canal
de PanamA, trabaja una orgullosa tia
del recien nacido hijo de Ram6n
Reyes, la Sra. Luz Reyes de Sedda,
esposa del Ingeniero Hernfn Sedda,
empleado de la Divisi6n de Inge-
nieria, y al que actualmente se le
puede ver muy ocupado con los tra-
bajos de la Ampliaci6n del Corte
Gaillard. La Sra. de Sedda fue tam-
bien entusiasta deportista, antes de
que sus tres retofios le quitaran el
tiempo que antes dedicaba al balon-
cesto y otros deportes.

Roy Goreng, encargado de la

es tan callado es que le gusta ahorrar
fuerzas para cuando es necesario le-
vantar la voz. Dicen que cuando l1
levanta la voz, se hace oir de un ex-
tremo al otro de la plant, a pesar de
que todas las mAquinas estin funcio-

Jack Coffey, el superintendent de la

NOTAS DE


SALUBRIDAD





EL ABUSO DE LAS DROGAS


En estos dias se habla much de
drogas y drogadictos. Revistas, pe-
liculas, la television y los peri6dicos,
todos hablan de ello. Mientras que
algo de lo que se dice es real, la
mayor parte es pura ficci6n, escrita
de tal manera que interest al piblico.
La viaa a base de drogas no tiene
nada de excitante o de interesante,
como algunos podran pensar. Es abu-
rrida, degradante y debilitante. Hay
algunos que creen que s6lo los estli-
pidos e ignorantes se vuelven droga-
dictos. La verdad es que algunos de
los que usan y abusan de las drogas
son personas de much inteligencia
y quizAs muy bien educados. Los
j6venes son particularmente vulnera-
bles debido a sus deseos de experi-
mentar o debido a alg6n problema
emotional relacionado con el creci-
miento.
Por lo comuin, los j6venes son in-
ducidos al uso de la droga por los
amigos, no por los vendedores. No
es fAcil rehusarse a un favor o a una
provocaci6n de un amigo. Y aAn es
mis dificil resistirse a la presi6n de
un grupo, cuando uno estA solo.
Entre las drogas a que nos referi-
mos esta la marihuana. En estos dias,
en los peri6dicos y en la television
se presentan casos sumamente dra-
matizados que parecen indicar que
la marihuana no causa dafio. Esto no
es verdad. Se ha creado la impresi6n
de que no se sabe virtualmente nada
acerca de ella y que nadie deberia
oponerse, a no ser que present prue-
bas claras y cientificas de que es una
droga peligrosa. Esto es falso y con-
tradice la prActica normal farmaco-
16gica.
Tanto la ciencia como la ley con-
cuerdan en que deben existir estric-
tos requerimientos en este punto para
el bien piblico. Los peligros de una
droga deben ser completamente eva-
luados y establecida su seguridad
antes de autorizarla para el uso del
p6blico. Por generaciones, la expe-
riencia ha mostrado que no existe
una droga que sea libre de riesgos
y a la vez farmacol6gicamente acti-
va. El problema consiste en compa-


Ultimo Curso de

Buceo SCUBA

Comenzara el 6
El ultimo curso de buceo SCUBA
de este afio, patrocinado por el
YMCA de Balboa, comenzara el
mi6rcoles 6 de noviembre. Este curso
serA dictado por "Chico" De La Las-
tra, quien posee creditos otorgados
por el Comit6 AcuAtico Nacional de
la YMCA de Estados Unidos y por
la Asociaci6n Nacional de Instruc-
tores Submarinos.
Todo el equipo necesario para el
curso se le suministrarA a los que lo
tomen. El curso se dictarA en la Pis-
cina del YMCA de Balboa. La gra-
duaci6n consistirA en 1 dia de buceo
en los alrededores de una de las islas
cercanas. Los graduados recibirAn un
Certificado de Buceo SCUBA de la
YMCA Nacional.
El curso estA abierto para todas
las personas de mis de 15 afios de
edad que sepan nadar debidamente.
Todos los interesados deberan pasar
un examen fisico antes de matricu-
larse. Los formularios para el examen
fisico y las solicitudes de inscripci6n
pueden obtenerse en el escritorio de
informaci6n del YMCA de Balboa.
Los menores de edad deberin
hacer que sus padres firmen junto
con ellos la hoja de solicitud. El curso
tiene un valor de $35 para los mili-
tares y de $40 para los civiles.


rar las posibilidades de dafios contra
los posibles beneficios.
Farmacol6gicamente hablando, la
marihuana es muy active. Uno o dos
cigarrillos de marihuana bastan para
producer amplias reacciones auton6-
micas con cambios en el tamaino de
las pupilas, el pulso del coraz6n, la
presi6n de la sangre y las funciones
de la vejiga. En el electroencefal6-
grafo se han registrado cambios en
las ondas cerebrales. Los efectos
mentales por el uso de la marihuana
son muy marcados. El balance emo-
cional es perturbado y se mezclan
los ratos de euforia con periods de
ansiedad. AdemAs, son frecuentes los
episodios cuasi paranoicos y pueden
dar lugar a perturbaciones en la con-
ducta. La voluntad y la iniciativa se
ven impedidas y un grado de gran
laxitud tiende a seguir. La marihua-
na ha sido calificada como alucin6-
geno. Se la describe mejor como un
poderoso alucin6geno en forma di-
luida.
8Existen peligros asociados a la
marihuana? Si. Se sabe que el fumar
un solo cigarrillo de marihuana ha
producido episodios psic6ticos. El
uso abundante puede producer dis-
torsi6n de la vista, engafios y aluci-
naciones. Las alteraciones del inte-
lecto y de los sentidos pueden Ilevar
a accidents y a hechos antisocial's
o de agresi6n.
dEnvicia la marihuana? La mari-
huana no lleva a una dependencia
fisica. Por lo general, se usa peri6di-
camente. Ocasionalmente, un indivi-
duo se convierte en drogadicto por
motives emocionales y trata de usarla
regularmente. A pesar de que parece
que su uso aumenta en escuelas y
universidades, la mayoria de los es-
tudiantes ]a fuman s6lo unas cuantas
veces y luego la dejan.
El uso casual o experimental de
la marihuana, efectuado por perso-
nas que no estAn acostumbradas o
que no han sido adiestradas respect
a sus efectos, puede causar proble-
mas al que los usa. Evite esos pro-
blemas. No experiment.
