Trade Fair,

To Be Open

Oct. 19 27

The biggest and -best
Trade Fair in its years of
sponsorship by the Canal
Zone United Fund is the
prediction of the campaign
committee which already
has two-thirds of the floor
space reserved. The Fourth
Annual Trade Fair will take
place October 19 27 in
Building 19, Corozal, arid
will feature three floors of
exhibits and displays by
Panamanian companies, as
well as Canal Zone presen-
The Trade Fair's objective
is to make aware to the
buying public the .products
available in Panama, par-
ticularly for exhibitors who
do not have representatives
of their stock in Canal Zone
* retail stores. Most of the
firms will have goods for
sale at the Fair.
It is anticipated that the
record crowd of 50,000 per-
sons who saw the Fair last
year will be greatly sur-
passed. Plenty of parking
areas are available and
convenient to visitors.
Entrance to Building 19 is
through the M.P. Gate after
turning right on Gaillard
Highway at the traffic light.
The exhibition building is
the fifth on the right be-
yond the gate entrance.

COMMUNITY MEETING PLACE This spot along a small brook which skirts Chimbote, Peru,
is community meeting place in the near-desert areas around the town, according to Ralph K. Skinner,
Staff Assistant to the Panama Canal Comptroller. Mr. Skinner. who visited Chimbote and many other
parts of South America during a vacation a few months ago, said there is a steel mill in Chimbote,
but the main occupation of residents is fishing. The town produces more fishmeal than any other
location in Peru, he was told. Washing, bathing, and just visiting is done along the brook, the
main source of water for the town.

Joy In the Morning by Betty
Smith is a heart-warming story
about two young Brooklynites
who are students in a midwestern
university. These youngsters
have everything in common to
help them through the problems
of their first year of marriage -
similar interests, understanding,
sympathy, affection, but almost
no money at all. Betty Smith has
made a charming story from this
material- one which probably
will rival her earlier success, A
Tree Grows in Brooklyn.
The Tenants of Moonbloom by
Edward Lewis Wallaft presents
Norman Moonbloom as a lonely
introverted man, who has failed
in just about every line of work
until he becomes a rent collector
for his brother in a New York
tenament area. The problems of
the tenants whom Norman Moon-
bloom comes to know and with
whom he learns to identify him-
self change 'him and lead him
into many complicated situations.

touching story died in December

QUESTION: What authority does the Panama Canal have to
withhold Panama income taxes from the pay of employees subject
to such taxes?
ANSWER: The withholding of Panamanian income tax from
the compensation of persons the payment-of such taxes
is provided for in an exchange of notes which constitutes an
executive agreement between the governments of the United
States and the Republic of Panama. This specific question has
been discussed by legal advisers at the highest governmental
level and it was concluded that the exchange of notes between
the two Governments establishes the necessary authority for
United Ctates Government agencies to withhold Panamaqian
income tax from employees df such agencies who are subject to
the tax.

Los Rotarios Escuchan los Objetos del S. de Guias

Frank A. Baldwin, jefe de In-
form aci6n del Canal de Pana-
mA, fue el orador invitado del
Club Rotario de PanamA, ed la
reuni6n-almuerzo llevada a ca-
bo al mediodia de ayer en el
Hotel-El Panama Hilton.
El senior Baldwin hizo una ex-
posici6n sobre el Servicio de
Guias de la Zona del Canal, que
fuera establecido al llegar el
Gobernador Robert J. Fleming,
Jr., para que todos los paname-
iios y los turistas tuvieran la
oportunidad de conocer la gran
obra del Canal de PanamA.
La charla del senior Baldwin
fue ilustrada con transparen- .
cias sobre la labor de los miem-
bros del Servicio de Guias de
la Zona del Canal, los cuales
ascienden a 15, todos bilingiles,
y casi la mitad de ellos, ciu-
dadanos panamefios.
He aqui las palabras del se-
Sfibor Baldwin ante el Club Ro-
"El Servicio de Guias de la

Primeros A uxilios

1. Haga que la victim se acueste y cese toda actividad
muscular inmediatamente.
2. Aplique un torniquete MAS ARRIBA del lugar de la mor-
dida. No la amarre muy fuerte y recuerde soltarlo por
dos minutes cada 15 minutes.
3. 'No corte el drea de la mordida.
4. Chipe la herida. Use la boca o una copa de succi6n. Si
ha chupado con la boca enjudguela frecuentemente con
agua, perd no se preocupe si no puede hacerlo. El veneno
de culebra no causa dafio si es tragado.
S. Lleve a la victim en una camilla o silla de manos si es
necesario al transport mds cercano y p6ngala al cuidado
de un mddico la omhs pronto possible.
S. Capture la culebra viva o muesta para identificaci6n po-
sitiva. Esta informaci6n ayudare at mddico a tratar al
paciente rdpida y eficientemente.

Dejar de cumplir una cita en el
hospital cuesta dinero. Los- que
hacen 6sto impiden que otras
personas reciban tratamiento me-
dico por falta de cupos.
Solamente en el Hospital Gor.
gas durante el mes de agosto,
dejaron de cumplirse 1,054 citas
medicas, lo que da un promedio
de 48 citas incumplidas por dia,
de acuerdo con informaci6n su-
ministrada por la Direcci6n de
Salubridad de la Zona del Canal. ,
No cumplir con una cita, par-
ticularmente aquellos que lo ha-
cen sin aviso previo, perjudica la
buena march de las clinics e
impide que otras personas reci-
ban tratamianto medico.
Si used no puede cumplir con
su cita, Ilame por telFono, que
con eso no pierde nada, pero por
favor, cumpla la cita.
