For Vaccination Against Measles -

At Toyland 1978

Christmas Fever Reathes Epidemic Proportions

There is good news in store in
1979 for policyholders of the Canal
Zone Benefit Plan: employee pre-
mium rates are decreasing and
benefits are increasing.
The employee contribution to the
plan will decrease by 9 percent on
January 1 of the new year. Self
Only enrollment will decrease from
$8.90 to $8 per pay period, and
Self and Family enrollment will go
from $22.71 down to $20.56.
At the same time, benefits ap-
plying in some cases within and in
other cases outside the Canal Zone
are being increased. 'Those benefits-
are as follows:
1. For the first time, the cost
of occupational therapy will be
covered by the Canal Zone Benefit
2. Under basic surgical bene-
fits, there will be an increase in the
coverage of the costs for the ad-
ministration of anesthesia. Present
coverage is figured at up to 20 per-
cent of allowable surgical benefits.
Next year coverage will increase to
up to 40 percent of the .allowable
surgical benefits.
What this means is that under
the present plan if an operation
costs a policyholder $1,000 and
$250 of that is the anesthesiologist's
charge, the plan covers up to 20
percent of $1,000, i.e., $200 for
anesthesia. Next year the plan will
cover up to 40 percent.

po h oi rease 11 vehelpful to
outside the Canal Zone. The cost of
. surgery in Canal Zone hospital
facilities is already completely
covered under the Canal Zone Bene-
fit Plan.
3. Hemophilia will be in-
cluded with such diseases as polio
and rabies as a dread-disease and
as such will entitle policyholders to
100 percent coverage for outpatient
4. The cost of the first pair of
contact lenses required to correct
the impairment caused by inter-
Ocular surgery will now be covered.
A practical example of what this
means is that patients needing con-

tact lenses because of cataract sur-
gery will have the cost of the first
pair of lenses paid for.
5. Outside of the Canal Zone
the plan currently covers 100 per-
cent of the cost of the average semi-
private hospital room, which varies
in rate depending on geographical
location. Beginning next year, if no
semi-private room is available, the
plan will pay 125 percent of the
cost of the average semi-private
room, which means an increase in
coverage of 25 percent.
6. Maternity benefits for care
received outside of the Canal Zone
will inci-ease from $350 to $500.
-7. Also outside of the Canal
Zone, benefits for the cost of hos-
pital miscellaneous charges for in
patients will be increased from
covering the first $500 to the first
$600 of such charges. Mimellaneous
charges are for services such as
blood and blood plasma, drugs and
medicines, injections, oxygen, and
use of an operating room.
The Canal Zone Benefit Plan wiH
continue to fully cover the costs of
the Gorgas and Coco Solo Hos-
pital tariffs, which were increased
on October 1 of this year.
A change in regulations effective
in 1979 will require that for bene-
fits to be paid for the treatment of
gingivitis and pyorrhea, a pre-
treatment estimate form must be
completed and receive approval
prio to1treatmenhe e smdeT

and will require such information
as dental X-rays that will aid a
Canal Zone Benefit Plan consultant
in determining whether the treat-
ment is in fact necessary. The
change has been effected in, an
effort to protect policy-holders from
unnecessary surgery and to protect
the insurance plan from fraud.
Open season for all health in-
surance plans in the Federal Em-
ployees Health BezieSt Program
will be held from November 13 to
December 8, 1978. Employees will
be furnished with brochures and
information related to the new rates
for each plan offered.

There have been several cases of
measles in the Canal Zone during
the past 2 weeks. When measles
virus is present in a community, the
American Academy of Pediatrics
recommends vaccination of infants
6 months of age and older to afford
protection against this disease.
The Division Of Eubliedlealth
requests that parents of infants
6 months and older bring their
babies to the Health Centers for
immunization against measles.
All parents should check their

children's immunization record to
be sure they have been protected
against measles. Any child who was
immunized before the age of 15
months requires a booster to confer
adequate protection. If your child
received the measles or combined
measles, mumps, rubella vaccine
before 15 months of age, please
contact one of the Community
Centers for a booster.
For further information, call
52-3271 on the Pacific side and
43-1553 on the Atlantic side.

A 10-year-old boy darted onto
the railroad track. The day was
dry and sunny. The track was
straight and clear. The head lamp
was lit. The bell was ringing. The
horn was sounding. But from where
he sat, the engineer could not see
the boy, and he was struck and
killed. That was in August.
About 10 days later, at almost
the same location, a toddler
wandered out onto the track. This
time, fortunately, the engineer saw
the youngster and brought his train
to an emergency stop. But cargo
and passengers were jolted and
jostled, and anxious parents rushed
to the scene to scoop up the
wandering child.
Three weeks ago, a lady shopper
came out of a store with both arms
full of purchases. As she stepped
onto the pedestrian walkway over
the nearby tracks, she was startled
by the warning horn of an ap-
proaching locomotive. Shocked, she
scooted to the other side as the
engine moved past with brakes
screen ing.
More than 1,500 hundred people
are killed and another 7,000 are
injured in railroad-crossing acci-
dents in the United States ever?

the information booth near the
doors. The automatic doors leading
out from the ground floor face the
parking lot.
Stairways and escalators lead to
the third Boor, though not all the
escalators are yet escalating. The
top level of the airport is as much
fun for visitors as it is fo;r pas-
sengers. There is a casino, where
you can while away your time and
money at a slot machine; a branch
of the National Lottery, where you
can buy or cash in lottery tickets;

a drugstore, a bar, and a small,
provisional restaurant that will
eventually be replaced by a much
larger one that will overlook the
, airfield.
But at Tocumen International, the
new has not entirely replaced the
old. Amidst all the finery, you still
find the shoeshine boy ready to give
you a shine for as much as he can
talk you out of. As if in deference
to the newness of the airport, his
chair has been reupholstered and
now sports a Mola cover,

drafts. Perspnal checks are not
cashed here unless you have an
account with the bank. To the left
of the bank is an INTEL office,
where overseas calls can be placed.
On either side of these two offices
are the security checkpoints for
departing passengers. Visitors are
not allowed beyond these booths.

Beyond the checkpoint is what is
essentially the other half of the
second floor, the half reserved for
departing passengers. Dozens of
duty-free shdps run the length of
the building, and you can find
clothes from France, cigarettes and
liquor, souvenirs of Panama, and
anything else your heart desires.
The glassed-in facade of the area
looks out onto the runway. A fam-
iliar complaint\ of visitors to the
airport is that this restricted area is
the only place where tyou can ac-
tually see plaries take off and land.

Braniff and Pan Americair occupy
satellite concourses extending oixt
a distance from either end of the
main building. Passengers on these
popular air carriers must remember,
as they browse through the duty
free shops, that the airport is spread
out over a large area. It is still a
long walk from the shopping area
on the second floor to the con-
courses, so waiting until the last

There is no more worry about

Arriving passengers ride the es-

must go through Immigration,

The sprawling new Tocumen In-
ternational Airport is no doubt
going to prove a boon to travelers,
with its spacious, fully air-condi-
tioned interiors offering piped in
music and interesting works of art.
Brit what is new is also unfamiliar;
and in the beginning, at least, some
passengers are going to have dif-
ficulty finding their way around the
new facility.
Of course the best way to avoid
that problem is to drive out to To-
cumen before departure day and
take a look around. The second best
way is to let someone else do it for
you and then tell ybu about it.
Here goes second best:
The new airport is three stories
high. The roadway leading to the
building itself divides in three to
take traffic in the center lane to the
first or ground floor, where arriving
passengers may be picked up; traffic
On the right, up a ramp to the
second floor where departing pas-
sengers may be dropped off; and
traffic on the left, to the parking lot,

the second floor is where the action
is for departing passengers. En-.
tering here, you see on the right
and left of you rows of ticket
counters representing airlines from
around the world. There is room at
the counters for handling several
passengers at once, though the
present amount of traffic through
the airport isn t taxing the system.
Tickets are checked here and
luggage is weighed in and carried
away on conveyor belts.
A television screen announcing
departing flights hangs prominently
in the center of the room, and two
smaller screens are visible at each
end. Departures are also an-
nounced clearly in English and
Spanish over the loudspeaker
Telephones abound the entire
length of the room.
In a sense, the second floor is
divided in two lengthwise. Behind
the wide central staircase that leads
to the third floor is a branch of

los pasajeros pagan el impuesto de
