For 40 Hours Travel T

Canal employees are reminded
that formal application must be
made for the 40 extra hours of travel
leave-with-pay for which U.S.-cit-
izen employees are eligible when
they have spent 30 days or more
outside the tropics on a leave-with-
pay status. No one will be credited
with this leave automatically. The
40 hours can be claimed only once
a year or twice if not used the year
The 30 days of paid leave may in-

is The Year of the Young Rebels
by Stephen Spender. Reviewing the
student uprisings at Columbia Uni-
versity, the Sorbonne, and in West
Berlin and Prague-all of which he
saw at firsthand-this English-born
poet gives a careful analysis of the
differences and similarities he no-
ticed among them and the analogy
with the generation of the 1930's.
His conclusions contain some con-
crete suggestions for solutions.

Shadbolt's novel This Summer's
Dolphin. On the resort island are a
collection of people all seeking re-
fuge from their personal problems.
Into the bay swims a dolphin,
friendly, and wanting to play. The
impact of the innocent wild crea-
ture upon the troubled inhabitants
is told with sensitivity and elegance.
Allen Dulles, former head of the
C.I.A., is the editor of a new an-
thology Great Spy Stories From
Fiction. The introduction says that
the popularity of espionage stories
points up the fact that the spy has
become a hero displacing the knight
errant and the cowboy. The many
examples ranging from the books
of Conan Doyle to Len Deighton
were chosen for accurate descrip-
tion of espionage work and also for
their readability. A choice item for
suspense fans.
The suspicion of murder falling
on a distinguished man takes In-
spector West to Florida in John
Creasey's Murder, London-Miami.
The suspected man's very correct
secretary makes West's job all the
harder until he corners a group of
villains in a lavish Miami Beach
hotel-in the best Scotland Yard
Anyone planning construction
should take a look at Betty Wason's
It Takes "Jack" To Build a House.
It is a very opinionated and quite
funny book with some practical
advice that Miss Wason learned the
hard way in her dealings with
Frank, the fast-talking and slippery
contractor who built her house.

Is Planned

At College
An Orientation Program for fresh-
men and new students of the Canal
Zone College has been scheduled
for the beginning of the 1969-70
school year.
The purpose of the program is to
acquaint new students with the
facilities, regulations, and courses
at the college. The college coun-
selors and other members of the
faculty will give suggestions to aid
the students in adapting to the col-
lege programs and in launching a
successful college career.
The orientation program will
begin with an introductory meeting
to be held in the College Audito-
riumn at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, August
24. Following this meeting, student
leaders will conduct campus tours,
ending with a reception in the Stu-
dent Lounge.
The following Saturday, August
30, the orientation program will be
continued from 9 a.m. to noon. This
session will be devoted to a discus-
sion of college regulations, study
suggestions, and the selection of
freshman class officers. Copies of
the Student Handbook also will be
distributed to new students during
these sessions.
On Friday evening, September
26, a get-acquainted dance spon-
sored by the Student Association
will be held from 8 p.m. to mid-
night. The college administration
has scheduled this type of orienta-
tion activity for the third year in
an effort to introduce all new stu-
dents to the different phases of
campus life at Canal Zone College.

Some people think they help
dogs by cutting their coats short in
tropical climate. Actually, animals
need hair to protect them from the
heat and insect bites. One way you
can refresh a dog, especially a long-
haired one, is by brushing or comb-
ing his undercoat daily. This re-
moves the hair close to the skin
that can clog the coat. Other ways
you can keep your pet more com-
fortable in hot weather are by cut-
ting down on his activities and the
amount of exercise you give him,
lightly spraying or rubbing his back
and legs with a mild insect repellant

cen otras drogas alucin6genas.
Luego de cierto nimero de inha-
laciones, el individuo (la mayoria
de las veces jovencitos entire los 10
v los 18 afios) experimentan un tipo
de exhilaraci6n parecida a la eufo-
ria pero que puede convertirse en
amnesia mezclada con una actividad
sin prop6sito.
Puede presentarse un enturbia-
miento de la vista, ruido en los
oidos, farfullamiento en el habla y
un andar tambaleante. La intoxica-
ci6n initial dura de unos 30 a 45
minutes y es seguida de somnolen-
cia, estupor y a veces de incons-
ciencia. Cuando el jovencito des-
pierta o se recupera, puede no re-
cordar nada de lo sucedido durante
el period de intoxicaci6n.
Una persona bajo la influencia de
los vapores del pegamento puede
tener los ojos muy vidriosos, con
las pupilas tan fijas que tendrAn
muy poca o ninguna reacci6n a la

R. C. Dividen

En el Volibol
Las escuelas secundarias de Pa-
raiso y Rainbow City dividieron ho-
nores el viernes pasado en los par-
tidos intercolegiales de volibol.
Paraiso triunf6 en el partido fe-
menino por 15-8 y 15-13, en tanto
que los varones de Rainbow City
ganaron su partido por 15-0 y 15-8.
Los juegos se celebraron en el
Ginnasio de la Escuela Secundaria
de Rainbow City.

"SB que sirvo comidas bien ba-
lanceadas", dice el ama de casa.
"Un dia se queja mi esposo y al dia
siguiente se quejan mis hijos".

El hombre al duefio de la casa:
"Mi apartamiento es tan frio, que
cada vez que abro la puerta se
enciende la luz".

El Alcalde de Panama City, Flo-
rida, J. W. Silcox, Jr., que estuvo de
visit en el Istmo con motivo del
4509 aniversario de la fundaci6n de
la ciudad de PanamA, dijo que
cuando en otras ciudades de los
Estados Unidos dice que es de Pa-
namA City, le hacen preguntas sobre
el Canal de Panama.
"Como a veces la situaci6n es
embarazosa, solamente digo que es
muy bonito, pero ahora si podr6
decir algo sobre el Canal", agreg6
el distinguido visitante, durante la
recepci6n ofrecida por el Goberna-
dor W. P. Leber en su residencia,
con motivo del 559 aniversario del
Canal de Panama.

Pocas personas sabian aqui que
existe en Florida, West Panama City
Beach, cuyo alcalde, Dan Russell,
estuvo en el Istno durante las fes-
tividades de la fundaci6n de la ciu-
dad de Panama.

Ya que estamos en la Semana del
Libro, no hay nada mAs apropiado
que hablarles de bibliotecas y bi-
bliotecarias en esta ocasi6n.

Una de las bibliotecas de la Zona
del Canal donde con mAs entusias-
mo se ha celebrado esta semana es
la de Paraiso, donde no s6lo el per-
sonal de la biblioteca sino toda la
poblaci6n han tomado parte en los
actos conmemorativos.

Y algo que se nos estaba pasan-
do: desde que abrieron las escuelas
latinoamericanas, el pasado 6 de
mayo, por los lados de Paraiso se ve
a tres damitas con un uniform su-
mamente elegant. Son la Sra. Ana
Botello de Forero, bibliotecaria de
Paraiso, y sus dos ayudantes, la Sra.
Maria Kidd y la Sra. Eleanor Brown.

El uniform es sobrio y elegant:
falda y saquito chocolates con blusa
y zapatos crema. Y se ven muy bien.

Hace unos dias, el Agil fot6grafo
Alberto Acevedo, del Ramo de
Artes Graficas del Canal de Pana-

ma, tuvo un accident automovilis-
tico. Gracias a Dios no tuvo conse-
cuencias mayores, aparte de un gol-
pe que Acevedo se dio en la rodilla
izquierda y otro que recibi6 en el
dedo gordo del pie derecho.
0 0 a
Alguien lleg6 a preguntarle a
Acevedo c6mo se sentia. Acevedo
le dijo que se sentia mejor y le mos-
tr6 el golpe que habia recibido en
la rodilla, le dio las gracias y se
alej6 . cojeando del pie derecho.
El amigo le pregunt6 por que no
cojeaba de la pierna izquierda. Ace-
vedo le explic6 que el golpe mis
fuerte lo habia recibido en la rodi-
lla, pero que, inexplicablemente, el
que lo hacia cojear era el golpe
que habia recibido en el dedo gordo
del pie derecho. Dice Acevedo que
esas cosas s6lo se explican si uno
se da un golpe semejante al que 61
se dio. Estamos seguros de que
todos aceptamos su explicaci6n.

Y volviendo a la Semana del
Libro, que terminal el dia de hoy,
les traemos un pensamiento del
gran maestro Dr. Octavio M6ndez
Pereira respect a la lecture: "La
lecture es una luminosa escalera
para llevamos desde el cieno de la
tierra hasta las alturas del cielo,
donde no llegan la envidia, ni el
odio, ni la calumnia, ni las pasiones

Aqui un pensamiento que encon-
tramos por alli uno de estos dias:
"Los hombres generalmente deci-
mos la verdad, except cuando dis-
cutimos promesas political, cuando
apuntamos las marcas que hacemos
en el juego de golf . o cuando
describimos el tamafio del pescado
que se nos escape".

Un iltimo pensamiento: "Quien
un buen libro tiene al lado . No
esta solo sino bien acompafiado".

El lunes a las 7 p.m. ser, inaugu-

la Liga Juvenil de Baloncesto, para
muchachos del 89 al 119 grado de
la Escuela de Santa Cruz, partici-
pando cuatro quintetos.

en familiar no sera algo separado
en los programs escolares diaries,
sino que continuarA siendo, como
lo ha sido en el pasado, parte de
los programs de studios sociales,
de ciencias y de salubridad. Los
planes actuales requieren que cier-
tas unidades del program sean op-
cionales a solicitud de los padres
de familiar.
Un program tentative sobre la
vida de la familiar para las escuelas
primaries latinoamericanas fue en-
tregado recientemente al personal
professional de las escuelas y al co-
mit6 educativo del Congreso de
Consejos Civicos Latinoamericanos
para su studio y comentario. Las
reuniones de padres de familiar se
celebrarAn en cada comunidad en
un future cercano. La ejecuci6n del
program en las escuelas latinoame-
ricanas podria ocurrir durante este
afio escolar.
Muchos grupos responsables han
abogado por un program mis fuer-
te sobre la vida en familiar, entire
ellos la Asociaci6n Americana de
Medicine, la Asociaci6n Nacional
de Educaci6n, la Asociaci6n Nacio-
nal de Juntas Escolares, la Comi-
si6n del Matrimonio y la Fanilia
del Consejo Nacional de Iglesias,
el Comit6 de la Familia del Con-
sejo de la Sinagoga de America, y
la Direcci6n de Vida Familiar de
la Conferencia Cat6lica de Estados
Esas organizaciones creen que la
vida de familiar, incluso la educa-
ci6n sexual, debe ensefiarse natu-
ralmente como parte del plan regu-
lar de studios y no como algo ex-
traordinario. Creen que los nifios y
nifias necesitan respuestas concre-
tas y correctas y un conocimiento
objetivo, para contrarrestar las fan-
tasias y medias verdades que obtie-
nen de sus compafieros de studio,
de la television, las peliculas y de-
mais medios de informaci6n masiva.
En las escuelas secundarias esta-
dounidenses se da el contenido so-
bre la vida en familiar en las classes
de 79 grado de Biologia, Sociologia,
Fisiologia y Economia Domstica.

bios para estos cursos. La opci6n

similar en Estados Unidos que in-
formaron de una proporci6n de 14
a 37 por ciento. Las estadisticas
sobre infecciones quir6rgicas, que
estan incluidas en estas cifras tota-
les, mostraron los mismos porcen-
tajes favorables para los hospitals
locales. Estas cifras muestran que
un personal experimentado y una
vigilancia constant son la clave de
la prevenci6n de infecciones adqui-
ridas en hospitals.
En los afios recientes, se han
hecho tremendous avances en el cam-
po de la medicine y actualinente
existen antibi6ticos para el trata-
miento de muchas infecciones. Sin
embargo, algunos de estos medica-
mentos pueden destruir la resisten-
cia natural del cuerpo a otras in-
fecciones contra las cuales no se
conocen tratamientos. Por lo tanto,
los m6todos de control deben con-
tinuar mejorando. Adelantandose a
necesidades del future, el Hospital
Gorgas nombr6 recientemente a un

es trabajar junto con todos los otros
departamentos e individuos en el
control de las bacteria en el am-

Nuestra civilizaci6n ha reducido
tanto la exposici6n a las bacteria
causantes de enfennedades que s61o
se necesitan medidas de higiene re-
lativamente simples. Pero, cuando
se entra a un hospital la cosa es
muy distinta.
Las posibilidades de desarrollar
una infecci6n, son much mas gran-
des en un hospital que en el am-
biente de todos los dias. La resis-
tencia del paciente a la infecci6n
con frecuencia es substancialmente
reducida debido a su enfermedad o
a la operaci6n a que ha sido some-
tido. A ello hay que afiadir una
mayor exposici6n a las bacteria
causantes de enfermedad. Estos
factors hacen imperative que cons-
tantemente se estfn investigando los
predios del hospital.
Esta cuidadosa inspecci6n es res-
ponsabilidad del Comit6 Contra In-
fecciones que se encarga de la in-

entonces, los hospitals de la Zona
