Lt. Gov. David S. Parker is one of the first contributors to sign a scroll
containing the names of Panama Canal employees who have contributed
to the establishment of the John Fitzgerald Kennedy Library in Boston,
Mass. He is shown here with David F. Mead, Bureau Chairman of the
Governor's Council for Voluntary Giving for the Administrative Services
Division and the Office of the Governor. The program, which permits
employees of the Canal organization to contribute to the cost of the project,
was started on the late President Kennedy's birthday May 29. The scrolls
with the names of the contributors will become part of the Kennedy archives.

The fine points of receiving police calls are explained by E. W. Bierbaum of the Balboa Police to the four new
police radio dispatchers hired for the Balboa District. Left to right are Mrs. Sabie L. Duree, Mrs. Barbara
Geoghegan, Mrs. Mary S. Hall, and Jerry L. Ransom.

Police Radio Will have New Sound;

Four Women Employed as Dispatchers

Some day soon, Canal Zone res-
idents should not be surprised to hear
the sweet soprano voice of a woman
answering the policeman on patrol
when he reports to the station by
Neither should they be startled if
a feminine voice comes on the wire
when they put in an emergency call
to the central police headquarters.

10 Zone Students

Win Cash Prizes

In Poster Contest
Ten Canal Zone students in U.S.
and Latin American schools won
cash awards in the 39th International
Latham Foundation poster contest
recently. Certificates of merit were
awarded to 150 local students.
More than 31,000 posters were
made for the contest on the topics of
Kindness to Animals, Good Citizen-
ship, Brotherhood, and World Friend-
ship. Schoolchildren and adults of 21
countries made a record number of
posters for the Latham Foundation's
International Humane Contest.
Cash prizes exceeding $5,000 were
awarded to winning contestants,
and 8,000 contestants were given
honorable mentions.
The contestants represented each
of the four groups: Group 1, grades
1-3; Group 2, grades 4-6; Group 3,
grades 7-9; and Group 4, grades
First prize winners from the Canal
Zone were Adela Agcaoili, Group 1,
(grade 3), Fort Clayton Elementary
School; Melva Osborne, Group 2
(grade 6), Ancon Elementary School;
and Michael Leighton, Group 3
(grade 9), Balboa High School.
Argelia Savory, Group 1 (grade 3),
Santa Cruz Elementary School; Jessie
Cookson, Group 2 (grade 6), Balboa
Elementary School; and Orlyn Wat-
son, Group 3 (grade 7), Rainbow
City Junior High School won
second prizes.
Winners of third prize cash awards
were Douglas Hall, Group 2 (grade
4), Diablo Elementary School; Milka
Villarreal, Group 2 (grade 5), Pedro
Miguel Elementary School; Vander-
bill King, Group 3 (grade 9), Paraiso
High School.
Bonnie Ohman, Group 2 (grade
4), Los Rios Elementary School was
a fourth prize cash winner from the
Canal Zone.

The voice instructing the police-
man, directing a radio patrol car, or
answering the emergency call will
belong to one of the four women who
were employed recently by the
Police Division as radio dispatchers
and telephone operators.
The police are not cutting down
on jobs for policemen. They are,
instead, putting non-police personnel
in those positions traditionally held
by policemen in order to release
policemen for regular police duties.
The four positions, three on the
Pacific side and one on the Atlantic,
were advertised in the Personnel
Bureau in-service employee transfer-
vacancy bulletin. Of the 25 appli-
cants, many of them men, four
women, and one man were con-
sidered best qualified.
The new employees are now taking
an intensive on-the-job training
course which will last several weeks
and includes such things as instruc-
tion in the signal code system used
by the police, radio calls, operation
of a new switchboard to be installed
soon in Cristobal and Balboa Police
Stations, orientation of the Canal
Zone residential districts, and a
brush-up course in conversational
Until the telephone switchboard is
installed, the new dispatchers will
handle radio calls. Later they will
take emergency calls by both radio
and telephone. They will send out
routine and emergency instructions
to cruising patrol cars and at times

cope with excited or even hys-
terical residents who want help-
They may even have to deal with
some callers who have a genuine
full-grown emergency but who may
hang up without giving an address.
When this has happened in the past,
police personnel just have to wait
until the person in need of assistance
calls back.
Qualifications for the dispatcher
jobs included experience in operating
a telephone switchboard and dealing
in general with the public. Nearly all
of the new women employees have
had this type of background. Jerry
Ransom, the one man in the group,
is a former Lock Security Guard.
The Canal Zone Police radio com-
munications system has grown con-
siderably since it was first installed
in 1944. At that time, there were only
six radio patrol cars on the Pacific
side and three on the Atlantic side.
Policemen on foot and in cars
reported in by telephone or were
alerted in cases of emergency by a
system of lights located near call
boxes or in some central position.
At present there are 21 radio patrol
cars available on the Pacific side, 18
on the Atlantic side and 30 foot
policemen equipped with portable
radios or walkie talkies during the
24-hour period.
The new dispatchers to be sta-
tioned in Balboa on a 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
and 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. shifts are Mrs.

128-Page 50th Anniversary Book

Will Tell Story of Panama Canal

The story of the Panama Canal,
from the French construction era to
the present, will be told in an attrac-
tive, 128-page book to be published
on occasion of the 50th Anniversary
of the Panama Canal.
More than 100 photographs featur-
ing historical highlights and modern
day installations will illustrate the
commemorative volume being pro-
duced by the Panama Canal Informa-
tion Office.
The book will be covered by a
full color jacket in a three-dimen-
sional effect. It will go on sale at
commissaries and service centers on
the actual day of the anniversary,
August 15. A price has not yet been

determined, but will be announced
prior to publication.
While the full color jacket is being
printed in the United States, the
book will be printed and assembled
at the PanCanal Printing Plant at
La Boca.
Some of the construction-day
photos being used were selected from
old glass plates with the cooperation
of Adrian M. Bouch6, Jr., marine
traffic controller, who has devoted
considerable time and effort to
classifying historical pictures.
Valuable aid has been provided by
the Canal Zone Library-Museum
personnel and the Isthmian His-
torical Society in supplying research
material for the book.

Checking on Fill

For Dam Project

Diving-Photo Job

Effective use of SCUBA diving
and underwater photography in
analyzing test fill for the proposed
Trinidad Dam in Gatun Lake is
described by a Panama Canal em-
ployee in an article in the May issue
of Civil Engineering, publication
of the American Society of Civil
The author is Anthony P. Mann,
soils engineer with the Engineering
Mann's article tells, with technical
details of interest to engineers,
divers, and photographers, of under-
water research on bearing quality
of the foundation for the dam, an
extremely soft organic muck 160
feet deep in some areas.
One of the dam-design problems
has been to determine much of its
natural strength the muck will lose
by being disturbed by the rock fill.
This will determine how flat the
slopes must be and how much fill P
will be required. B
The article is illustrated with pic- Z
tures of Mann and PanCanal geo- D
logist R. H. Stewart in diving gear
ready for a plunge with camera,
views of the fill surface underwater,
a barge loaded with rock spoil ready
for dumping on the site, and a mapo
of the Canal's route across the
Isthmus showing location of the 19
proposed dam.

A plan for a tunnel to cross the
Canal, which was at one time under
consideration, was abandoned in
1913 because of the excessive cost.



By Eleanor Burnham

A Feast of Freedom is an extrav-
agantly satiric novel by Leonard
Wibberly about a newly freed, econ-
omically starving, very remote South
Sea Island. It suddenly achieves
fame and fortune as a tourist attrac-
tion when a visiting V.I.P. makes
a fatal social error and, unfortunately
for most people concerned, is duly
eaten. This is a very funny and
entertaining story.
The Junkie Priest, by John D.
Harris, is the story of Father Daniel
Egan and his part in establishing
Manhattan's Village Haven as an
always available aid to the depressed.
Most of his "girls" are dope addicts
just released from the women's
prison nearby. This brave man's con-
tinuing efforts with the depraved,
pathetic, and defenseless seem to
have started a trend toward a more
humane approach to the problem of
the narcotic. The author of this book
is a New York newspaperman with
Hearst. His story has been and will
probably continue to be the subject
of newspaper feature articles.
In Old Hickory Noel B. Gerson
has presented a wonderful picture of
one of our early heroes-Andrew
Jackson, seventh president of the
United States. The author has com-

Harry C. Elliott, who has been registry clerk in the
mail-handling unit at Balboa Post Office since Septem-
ber 1963, is a Canal Zone native. He was born in Ancon
and grew up in the Ancon-Balboa area.
He received his schooling in the Canal Zone and is
a graduate of Balboa High School in the class of 1961.
In May 1962 he married Steffanie M. Dreyer and they
have two sons, John S. Elliott, 16 months old, and
Robert C. Elliott, 3 months.
Mr. and Mrs. Elliott live on Bayano Street, Ancon.


Louis Charles, window clerk at the Howard Field
ost Office since early in May, and formerly at the
alboa Post Office, is another graduate of Balboa High
:hool and Canal Zone College employed with the Canal
one Postal Division. Prior to coming to the Postal
division he served a tour of duty with the U.S. Army
Id then, in 1956, worked with the Panama Canal
ocks Division.
He was born in Richmond, Va., but has spent most
his life on the Isthmus.
Mr. and Mrs. Charles, who were married in August
960, are the parents of a daughter, Virginia Ann.
Athletics are his major interests and his hobbies are
iseball, football, and basketball.

bined historical fact with a delightful
fictional style. The result is a first-
rate biographical novel which effec-
tively highlights Jackson's three over-
riding passions-a hatred of the
English, a devotion to the State of
Tennessee, and his great love for
Rachel Jackson, his wife. Gerson has
written many historical novels, in-
cluding an earlier fictional book
about Jackson called The Yankee
from Tennessee.
Meet in Darkness is a Red Badge
mystery novel by Stephen Ransome
about the Florida kidnapping of a
movie producer. His disappearance
takes on chilling overtones when it
becomes clear that the kidnappers
want more than money of their
victim. They are involving the crime
with the ugly secrets of his friends.
This is an exciting and well plotted
tale and good for a suspenseful
evening at home.
James Forrestal; a Study of Per-
sonality, Politics and Policy is an
account of the life and death of our
Secretary of Defense by Arnold A.
Rogow. Forrestal's life contained
many of the elements of tragedy. He
separated himself from his family
and rejected his early religious
beliefs. He left Princeton 5 weeks
before he was to receive his
bachelor's degree. His career on Wall
Street, his unconventional ideas
toward marriage and children, and
his spectacular career in Govern-
ment provide in retrospect many
indications of the mental illness
which ended in his death. This is a
controversial and depressing, but
very absorbing book. Its author,
associate professor of political
science at Stanford, is well known
for his political writings.

The Boy Scout summer camp at
Camp Chagres, near Madden Dam,
will open for troops on June 21. The
second period begins June 28.
The camp fee has been set at $18
per Scout. Leaders with at least six
Scouts will be guests of the camp.
The first 175 boys registered by
June 15 with a down payment of $5
per boy, through their scoutmaster,
will receive a free camp neckerchief.
Visitors are welcome at any time.

Visitors' campfire programs are
planned for Wednesday, June 24 and
Wednesday, July 1.
The basic program for activities
will make it possible for boys to
complete 2d- and 1st-class skill
requirements, as well as, work on
various outdoor merit badges.
Robert U. Schultz is Camp Direc-
tor. He will be assisted in camp by
Wesley H. Townsend, Capt. Walter
Rich, and Brad Conrad.

New Nursing Career Program Opens

Door to Opportunity for Degree

Interested in a nursing career? If
* so, the Army has a new program
designed just for you-one that offers
the opportunity to earn a bachelor
of science degree in nursing with
nearly all educational expenses paid.
If you are a high school graduate or
are in your senior year of high
school, you may be eligible.
Those who are accepted into the
program will be sent to the college
or university of their choice for their
first 2 years. The Army will pay for
tuition and books and the student
will receive the regular monthly pay
of a private first class, $99.37 basic
pay plus $55.20 for quarters and $30
for subsistence if the tuition does not
cover room and board.
After completing the first 2 years,
the student will be transferred to
the University of Maryland for
study at Walter Reed General Hos-
pital, Washington, D.C. during the
final 2 years. Upon completion of
this 4-year program, the student will
receive a bachelor of science degree
in nursing and will be commissioned
as a second lieutenant in the Army

Nurse Corps. As "pay-back" for this
outstanding education, the graduate
must then serve on active duty as an
officer for a 3-year period.
To be eligible, you must be a high
school graduate or a high school
senior at the time you apply, be a
U.S. citizen, have taken the College
Entrance Board's or American col-
lege tests, be eligible for enlistment
in the Women's Army Corps, be
accepted by a 4-year college or uni-
versity which has a program leading
to a bachelor of science degree, and
pass an Army physical examination.
Students who are already attend-
ing an accredited college or uni-
versity in a program leading to the
B.S. degree are also eligible to apply.
If you are interested and desire
additional information, call Fort
Amador 5164 or visit the USARSO
Reenlistment Office in Building 3,
Fort Amador. Students who are
now in the United States can
obtain detailed information at their
nearest Army recruiting station. The
USARSO reenlistment office can
provide necessary addresses.

that in the future, the fastest ocean
racers and sailing cruisers will be of
this type design and construction.
Bill Collins, one of the members
cf his crew for the voyage down
from San Diego, has joined the Pan-
ama Canal organization in the Pay-
ro.l and Machine Accounting Branch.
Kennedy, his wife, Virginia, and
their son, Mel, and Collins are living
aboard the yacht. It sleeps six com-
fortably and there were two other
crew members besides Collins for
the trip down. The multihull is
strictly sail, so. far as inboard motor
power is concerned, and a 5-horse-
power outboard motor, its only
standard auxiliary power, moves it
along at 4 knots. An 18-horsepower
outboard was borrowed for more
power for transit.
The craft draws only about 2 feet,
with centerboard up, 6'2 feet with
centerboard down. It has logged as
much as 160 miles in a 24-hour
period, and although not a racing
boat, has done an estimated 12 to
13 knots. No maximum speed check
has been made. The yacht's gross
weight, fully loaded, is about 14,000
The party made port only twice en
route to the Canal Zone, at Acapulco,
Mexico, and Punta Arenas, Costa
Rica, and had no troubles in four
storms during the voyage. They ran
with one storm 20 hours, being blown
240 miles off course, and then had
to beat their way back for 7 days.
The Kennedys plan to remain on
the Isthmus for some time.

Party Will Honor

Mrs. Anna Rheney
A farewell party will be given for
Mrs. Anna Rheney at the Fort Gulick
Officers' Club Saturday, June 13,
from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Mrs. Rheney,
an X-ray technician at Coco Solo
Hospital, has worked for the Health
Bureau on both sides of the Isthmus.
Reservations or additional infor-
mation may be obtained from Mrs.
Louise E. Criffon at 36-617. Reserva-
tions must be in not later than June 8.

Canal's Anniversary
Stamp Exhibit Theme
The 50th Anniversary of the Pan-
ama Canal was the theme of the
32d annual exhibition of the Crescent
City Stamp Club in New Orleans,
La., recently.
The display featured exhibitions of
U.S. and foreign stamps and included
a souvenir sheet depicting stamps of
the Canal Zone.
Gastdn Garrido, Counsel General
of the Republic of Panama in New
Orleans, cut the ribbon officially
opening the exhibit.

Insinuating that his weather predicting methods were something less than
scientific, friends of W. H. Esslinger gave him a custom-made galloping
domino, with "forecasts" in place of the normal dots, at the recent retire-
ment party for the Panama Canal chief hydrographer. Other gifts in the
same category were bottles of Chagres River and Gatun Lake water.
A telegram also was received, suspected of being a fake, from a man by
the name of Arnold Palmer, asking Esslinger to be his caddy because of
the hydrographer's extensive background knowledge of water-soaked
greens. Also a gift from friends was a slide projector, and official recogni-
tion included a Distinguished Service Award, $300 check and Master Key
to the Locks as Honorary "Lake Master" presented by Governor Fleming.

Automatic Data

Processing Expert

To Speak June 16

"The Need For and Use of Auto-
matic Data Processing" will be the
topic of a lecture by Dr. Charles K.
Pullen, Director of Statistical Serv-
ices, Department of Education of
the State of Tennessee, at 3:45 p.m.
June 16 in the Balboa High School
Activities Building.
Dr. Pullen, who is being brought
to the Canal Zone as an advisor on
automatic data processing for the
Division of Schools, received his
doctor's degree from George Peabody
College in 1956. He has had experi-
ence as a teacher and principal. For
3 years he was district sales manager
for Encyclopedia Britannica Films.
In addition to being national
chairman of the Council on Educa-
tional Data Systems and associate
editor of the publication Data Proc-
essing for Education, Dr. Pullen has
been director of statistical services
for the Tennessee State Department
of Education since 1960.
Employees of all organizations are
invited to attend the lecture.

Cyrca League

Begins Action

Tuesday Night

Ron Cortez will play Gordon's Gin
and White Horse will meet Seagram's
V.O. in the opening games of the
1964 Cyrca Basketball League season
Tuesday, June 9. All games are
played at the Balboa High School
gymnasium, with doubleheaders
beginning at 6:30 p.m. and single
games starting at 7:15 p.m.
The same six teams that performed
in 1963 are back-Four Roses, Peugot
404, White Horse, Seagram's V.O.,
Ron Cortez, and Gordon's Gin- but
there are three new coaches-Tony
Oiler, Arnold Manning, and Jim
McKeown. Despite the fact that the
team sponsors remain the same, team
rosters are different because at the
beginning of the year the teams are
picked by the coaches according to
the team's finish the year before.
Therefore, a man on the first place
team one year might very well be
playing for another team the
following season.
The rest of the first week's sched-
ule: Wednesday, June 10-Peugot
vs. Four Roses, Ron Cortez vs. White
Horse; Thursday, June 11-Seagram's
vs. Four Roses, Gordon's Gin vs.

CZC Summer

Session Set for

June 15-August 6

Departments represented in the
1964 summer session at the Canal
Zone College are business education,
English, foreign language, engineer-
ing and technology, mathematics,
library science, and social science.
The majority of the classes carry
college credit, but a number are
being given at pre-college level for
the benefit of high school graduates
entering the college on a conditional
basis because of inadequate high
school background. These classes
also offer high school students the
opportunity to take certain useful
subjects which they cannot fit into
their high school schedules.
Pre-freshman classes to be given
are driver training, typewriting,
shorthand, English, Spanish, mathe-
matics, and social studies. The latter
class will be a review of geography
and history and is especially designed
to prepare the students for the
required freshman course in world
The summer session is to run from
June 15 through August 6. Registra-
tion information and materials may
be obtained from the College admin-
istration office, 209 College Building,
La Boca. Summer school registration
is now open and will continue
through June 12. Early registration
is urged in order to insure the sched-
uling of classes planned as well as
theopening o f new sections when
registration of students warrants. No
class section can be offered unless it
has at least 10 students.
For additional information, inter-
ested students may go to the college
office or call 2-2380.

PanCanal Employees with 40-Plus

Years of Service Top Retirees List

Thirty Panama Canal employees,
two with more than 40 years of
service and nine with more than 30
years, retired last week. Certificates
attesting to years of service were
presented by Lt. Gov. David S.
Parker at a ceremony in the Board
Room at Balboa Heights.
Enrique Aparicio, with 45 years of
service, was the oldest man in point
of service among the employees
retiring. Luis A. Martinez, with more
than 40 years was the next oldest in
service. Both received gold keys to
the Panama Canal Locks from the
Lieutenant Governor.
Among the retirees was Rodney
B. Ely, who came to the Canal organ-
ization in 1927 as a surveyor in the
Engineering Division. He became
Chief of Surveys Branch in 1940.
Ely has left for his new home in
Centerbrook, Conn. En route he
plans to visit with Elmer B. Stevens,
former bridge project engineer, and
Alton White, former Dredging Divi-
sion chief, at the Stevens home in
Monroe, La.
Also on the list was P. Byrne
Hutchings, member of a well-known
Canal Zone family, who came to the
Isthmus in 1909 with his family as a
small boy. He started to work in
1926 with the Bureau of Posts and
later transferred to what is now the
Community Services Division. He

And Most Soups

Are Much Better

Without Thumbs
Why should a food handler avoid
Why is smoking prohibited for
them? Why are can openers cleaned?
These and dozens of other health
rules were explained by Canal Zone
Sanitary Inspector Richard Williams
to a group of 28 Pacific-side food
handlers during a recent showing of
the 3X-hour "Food Handlers Review"
at the Balboa YMCA.
The meeting, the first of a series
designed to improve sanitary habits
of employees who handle food in the
public restaurants and lunchrooms
in the Canal Zone, featured four
commercial films, 80 colored slides
and an illustrated Sanitation Follies
sheet to review 64 errors in food
handling. Each of the food handlers
was given a booklet "Here's How"
for a reference bible at the end of
the meeting.
The colored slides had been taken
locally at food establishments in the
Canal Zone. They stress proper per-
sonal appearance, habits, and clean-
liness standards of food handlers.
Afterwards, Williams explained the
reasons for the various sanitation
rules and the techniques used to
maintain cleanliness.
The Food Handlers' Review was
prepared by J. P. MacLaren, Chief
of the Division of Sanitation. It is
available for all new food handlers
in Canal Zone food establishments
as well as for experienced employees
and management personnel. Sanitary
inspectors in the Northern and
Southern Sanitation areas will make
arrangements to present the instruc-
tion course.

mately 2 months.

Los empleados de la organizaci6n
del Canal tendrAn la oportunidad de
honrar la memorial del finado Presi-
dente John F. Kennedy haciendo
contribuciones personales a la funda-
ci6n de la Biblioteca John Fitzgerald
Kennedy en Boston, Massachusetts.
Un program especial, similar a
las actividades que se llevan a cabo
en los Estados Unidos, comenz6
en la Zona del Canal en el natalicio
del Presidente Kennedy, el 29 de
mayo. Organizado a travbs de las
facilidades del Consejo del Gober-
nador para la Donaci6n Voluntaria,
encabezado por el Vicegobernador
David S. Parker, el program per-
mitira a todos los empleados que
deseen hacerlo, contribuir con el
costo del proyecto.
El Gobernador Robert J. Fleming,
Jr., dice en un memorandum a los
empleados, que el esfuerzo es com-
pletamente voluntario, tanto para
aquellos que trabajan para que tenga
exito como para aquellos que hacen
la donaci6n. Se han preparado listas
especiales para que los contribuyen-
tes firmen con el objeto de que su
* participaci6n forme parte de los ar-

el Gobernador que las contribuciones
de los ciudadanos no estadounidenses
seran, por supuesto, bien recibidas.

mento de la naci6n a su memorial "

amigos del Presidente Kennedy de
que el espiritu de sus planes se cum-
pla. Apenas sea construida la biblio-
teca por subscripci6n pAblica, serA
traspasada al Gobierno de los Estados
Unidos, que de alli en adelante asu-
mira la responsabilidad de su mante-
nimiento y operaci6n. El costo del

cias, han sido otorgadas a civiles a
fin de permitir la asignaci6n de los
agents uniformados a otras activi-
Las cuatro plazas, tres en el lito-
ral del Pacifico y una en el AtlAntico,
fueron anunciadas en el Boletin de
la Direcci6n de Personal. De los 25
aspirantes, se seleccionaron por sus
calificaciones excepcionales cuatro
mujeres y un hombre.
Los nuevos empleados se encuen-

prende instrucci6n sobre el sistema
de sefiales que utiliza la policia, co-
municaciones con los carros de radio
patrulla, operaci6n de las nuevas
centrales telef6nicas que pronto serAn
instaladas en Balboa y Crist6bal,
orientaci6n en los barrios residen-
ciales de la Zona del Canal y un
curso bAsico de castellano.
Hasta tanto que sean instaladas
las centrales, los nuevos empleados
trabajaran en las transmisiones ra-
diales. TransmitirAn instrucciones a
los radio patrullas y se encargaran
de responder a algunas de las llama-
das de emergencia.
En muchas ocasiones, tendrAn que
tratar con ciudadanos nerviosos que
en casos de emergencia llaman a la
policia y se les olvida dar la direc-

Entre los requisitos para las plazas
figuraban experiencia en la operaci6n
de centrales telef6nicas y trato con
el pAblico. Casi todas las nuevas
empleadas tienen amplia experiencia
en este campo. Jerry Ransom, el
imico hombre entire los nuevos em-
pleados, se desempefiaba anterior-
mente como guardia en las esclusas.

El sistema de coniunicaciones ra-
diales de la policia ha sido ampliado
notablemente desde que fue instalado
en 1944. En esa 6poca, habia sola-
mente seis carros de radio patrulla
en el litoral del Pacifico y tres en la
costa del AtlAntico. Los demAs poli-
cias mantenian comunicaci6n con el
cuartel por tel6fono o por medio de
sefiales luminosas instaladas en las
proximidades de su posta asignada.
Actualmente, la Policia de la Zona
cuenta con 21 radio patrullas en la
costa del Pacifico y 18 en el sector
AtlAntico. Tiene ademAs 30 policies
equipados con radios portAtiles du-
rante las 24 horas del dia.
Las nuevas despachadoras, que
trabajarAn en Balboa en turnos de
7 a.m. a 3 p.m. y de 3 p.m. a 11 p.m.,
son Sra. Mary W. Hall, Sra. Sabie
L. Duree y Sra. BArbara Geoghegan.
Ransom trabajarA tambi6n en Balboa.
Para el sector del AtlAntico ha sido
asignada la Sra. Anita B. Collins,
quien trabajarA en el turno de 7
a.m. a 3 p.m., 5 dias por semana.
Los policies encargados del adies-
tramiento de los nuevos empleados
aseguran que estarAn capacitados
para desempefiar sus cargo sin asis-
tencia dentro de un period de
2 meses.

lancha motora al servicio de la Divi-
si6n de Navegaci6n en Crist6bal,

nada una never vieja, una refrige-
radora o un congelador puede fAcil-
mente convertirse en una trampa de

ra de gas.
Refrigeradoras viejas olvidadas,
muchas veces abandonadas des-
preocupadamente en algdn s6tano,
un portal, o en algin garaje o dep6-
sito o patio de materials exceden-
tes, han extinguido las vidas de 260
nilios durante los fltimos 16 afios
.. o sea, un promedio de 16 nifios
cada afio.
Como parte de la celebraci6n de
la Semana de los Ingenieros de Ser-
vicios de Refrigeraci6n, que se obser-
varA del 19 al 8 de junio, el Capitulo
de la Zona del Canal de la Asocia-
ci6n de Ingenieros de Servicios de
Refrigeraci6n hace notar este peligro
y ofrece su cooperaci6n y ayuda.
Si tiene usted una refrigeradora
vieja y no puede quitarle la puerta
usted mismo, llame a cualquier me-
cAnico afiliado a la asociaci6n, una
sociedad educational, que gustosa-
mente le prestarA este servicio . .
