Please Be Careful
It's almost time for school to let
out for summer vacation-a time
when kids can indulge in what one
writer referred to as "the birthright
of every child": having fun.
The vacation months will be jam-
packed with unbelievable amounts
of fun-swimming, walking,_playing,
hiking, climbing, running, jumping,
and, for some of the older boys and
girls, driving a car.
Summer, for the kids, is the
roaming season. It is time of free-
dom. It's also a time of tragedy-5
tragedy from accidents.
Please be careful.


briefings held in September of last
year.
Specifically the briefings will focus
on planned changes that the Canal
organization will undergo as a result
of Treaty implementation, the per-
sonnel impact, implementing legis-
lation, and a review of living and
working conditions that are ex-
pected to prevail under the new
Treaty arrangement.

the Balboa High School Audito-
rium and from 7 to 9 p.m., Wednes-
day, May 31, at the Cristobal
Junior-Senior High School Audito-
rium.
As a complement to the briefings,
beginning next Friday the SPILL-
WAY will publish a question-and-
answer series which has been pre-
pared by the Personnel Bureau.
Categories to be covered in the
series are transfer of functions to
Department of Defense activities,
reductions in force, retirement, func-
tions discontinued by Panama Canal
Company-Canal Zone Government
and taken over by Panama; place-
ment assistance for employees af-
fected by Treaty, and miscellaneous.

required to obtain a Panamanian
passport for the purpose of traveling
on the Pan American Highway to
Costa Rica.

above status who plans to travel to
Costa Rica via the Pan American
Highway should first go to the Cus-
toms Division office in Balboa
where he or she will be provided
a form certifying information per-
tinent to the employee.
This form should then be taken
to the Panama Immigration office
located at Avenida Cuba at 28th
Street (above the fire station) where
an exit and reentry permit valid at
Paso Canoa, the Panama-Costa Rica
border, will be attached to the em-
ployee's United States passport.
The same procedure will be used
for dependents of employees who
meet the above conditions.
Individuals undertaking these
procedures to exit and reenter the
Republic of Panama must use the
same travel documents to reenter
as were used to exit the Republic.
The above information was re-
cently provided to the Canal Zone
Customs Division by the Director
of Immigration, Ministry of Gov-
ernment and Justice of the Republic
of Panama.

Former Zone Resident Commer

For Quick Actions as Army Do


Capt. (Dr.) Gordon Graham, a
graduate of Balboa High School
and son of Mrs. Frances Graham,
retired teacher of mathematics at
Balboa High School, has received
two commendations from the U.S.
Army for his work in diagnosing
and treating a victim of the recent
botulism outbreak in New Mexico.
William Beaumont Medical Cen-
ter in El Paso, Tex., received the
first patient afflicted with the dis-
ease-an Air Force sergeant from
Cannon AFB who had been air
evacuated to the Medical Center.
A report from Beaumont indicates
that Dr. Graham "performed a
valuable service in promptly diag-
nosing the malady and alerting state
and Federal health officials to the
possibility that more cases might
be expected since an isolated case
of botulism is unlikely." The quick
action by Dr. Graham and his Army
Medical colleagues resulted in effec-
tive treatment of more than 30 vic-
tims in the New Mexico area, some
of whom were severely paralyzed
and in danger of death.
At the point when the Air Force
patient was received at Beaumont,
there were uo other suspected cases
of botulism. Despite the fact that
the patient had many symptoms of
stroke and several other symptoms
not normally seen in botulism cases,

Merchant Marine Academy, Class
of 1982.
Born in the Canal Zone, Jack has
attended schools on the Atlantic
side and is a 1978 graduate of Cris-
tobal High School. He has been on
the tennis and rifle teams and is
currently the 2d Battalion Com-
mander JROTC holding the rank of
lieutenant colonel.
Jack is the grandson of Mr. and
Mrs. George Norris of Balboa and
Mrs. Laverne Savior of Inverness,
Fla.


Dr. Graham called the Ii
Disease Control Center in
Ga., to evaluate the possi
botulism. When a trivale
toxin arrived at El Paso
tional Airport in the early
hours Dr. Graham was

bedside.

we go on the water.
Coast Guard analysis of boating
accidents has shown that falling
overboard as a result of standing in
boats, bow riding and sitting on the
back of seats and gunnels- is the
largest contributor to boating fatal-
ities. Unsafe practices such as these
are to be avoided; however, falls
overboard do happen and boaters
must be prepared for them. A Per-

be available for each person in a

Por Favor Tenga Cuidado
Ya se acerca el comienzo de las
vacaciones de verano escolares, la
epoca en que los muchachos pue-
den dar rienda suelta a lo que un
escritor llam6 "el derecho natural
de todo nifio": a divertirse.
Los meses de vacaciones estaran
repletos de diversiones y los nifios
pasarAn buenos ratos nadando, co-
rriendo, jugando, trepando, saltan-
do, o simplemente caminando-y los
ya mayores, manejando un carro.
El verano para los nifios es una
Apoca para gozar de entera liber-
tad. Pero tambi6n puede traer tra-
gedia-la tragedia de los accidents.
Por favor, tenga cuidado.

mana de la Seguridad Acuatica


tica para establecer un program
individual de seguridad y ponerlo
en practice desde el moment que
ponemos pie en una embarcaci6n.
El Servicio de Guardacostas, en
un analisis de accidents acuiticos,
ha demostrado que caer al agua
como resultado de estar de pie en
una embarcaci6n, montado en la
proa o sentado en alguna parte de
la lancha poco segura cuando 6sta
estA en march, casi siempre resul-
tan en un accident fatal. PrActicas
inseguras como 6stas deben evitar-
se. Sin embargo, siempre hay la
posibilidad de que se caiga al agua
y debemos estar preparados para
ello. En toda embarcaci6n debe
haber salvavidas para cada persona
a bordo y un dispositivo de flota-


ci6n (cojin, rueda) que se le pueda
lanzar al agua. Todas las personas
deben Ilevar sus salvavidas puestos,
especialmente aquellas que no sa-
ben nadar. Deben ser usados co-
rrectamente y deben Ilenar los-re-
quisitos del Servicio de Guardacos-
tas. Los dispositivos de flotaci6n
que' no han sido aprolYads,; tales
como correas para esquiar, resultan
mortales.
AdemAs de los consejos anterio-
res, se debe usar el sentido comiin
y nunca exceder el radio de acci6n
de su embarcaci6n, obedecer siem-
pre los reglamentos sobre la nave-
gaci6n. Todo esto le asegurari, la
pr6xima vez que salga a pasear o
de pesca, una experiencia segura y
.agradable.
