he spread the lime dust on the

Although the employee said that h's
eyes felt fine, Bailey insisted that
he make an accident report and see
a doctor.
The affected employee followed
Bailey's advice and went to see the
doctor who treated him and re-
moved a sharp piece of foreign ma-
terial from under his eyelid. The
doctor's report noted that the em-
ployee would probably have lost
his eyesight had it not been for the
by Bailey.

A disinfect-deodorizing solution is applied to a garbage container by Julisin
G. Godoy, an employee of the Grounds Maintenance Branch. The spraying
equipment he is using is a self-contained unit of the trucks employed in
the new containerized garbage collection system being installed through-
out the Canal Zone communities. This feature of the new system, which
permits the containers to be treated each time they are emptied, offers
a much desired sanitary improvement over the curb-side service cans that
have been used in the past.
