A Plug... For Fire Prevention



a -.. -

Texts such as those at left, attached to fire plugs and on Fire Division trucks, helped carry Fire Prevention Week
messages last week. And at right a group of Diablo Heights Elementary School first graders got the inside story of
protective gear worn by firefighters and the equipment which helps them battle blazes. In front, left to right,
are Susan Bierman, Lester Kaufmann, and Debbie Pollack; behind them, Fred Kelly, left, and Billy James.

Even Birds Took Refuge Aboard

As SS Cristobal Sat 0

"The wind was so strong, we
expected to see cows go flying by
most any minute," said one of the
passengers on the SS Cristobal when
the vessel docked at Cristobal last
Thursday, 3 days late because of
Hurricane Hilda. The SS Cristobal
sailed from New Orleans on Octo-
ber 1, but anchored at Pilottown on
the Mississippi River to wait out the
storm's fury.
"Television really helped a great
deal," said another passenger. "We
watched the progress of the storm,
and were thankful that we were on
board the Cristobal, out in the Mis-


Film Booked

At Theaters

To afford a wider opportunity for
more people to see the new Panama
Canal 50th Anniversary color film, it
has been added to the regular show
at Balboa Saturday, Sunday, and
Monday, and at Rainbow City
Theater Sunday and Monday.
Scheduled times at Balboa are 2:30
and 8:15 p.m. Saturday and Sunday
and 7:30 p.m. Monday. It will be
shown at Rainbow City Theater
(Spanish print) at 7 p.m. Sunday
and Monday.
It is a documentary film of activi-
ties and ceremonies in the Canal Zone
in August marking the 50th anniver-
sary of the opening of the Canal.
It was edited and assembled by per-
sonnel of the Graphic Branch and
the Information Office.
Prints of the film, in English and
Spanish, are available free through
the Information Office for group
showings. Arrangements also may be
made for group showings in the
briefing room in the basement of the
Administration Building.

sissippi, rather than in New Orleans
or any of the other Louisiana areas.
Especially when we saw how much
damage was done. Here, on board,
it was like living in a floating hotel."
When the SS Cristobal headed out
to sea Monday, bound for the Port
of Cristobal, hundreds of birds,
caught up by the swirling winds of
Hurricane Hilda and carried far from
their home nests, took refuge on the
vessel. Two of the passengers, C. W.
Kilbey, superintendent of the Panama
Canal Service Center Branch, and
Dr. Kenneth Bloomberg, an ophthal-
mology resident at Gorgas Hospital,
immediately set up "Operation Bird
At least 150 hawks, herons, small
flycatchers, flickers, catbirds-repre-
sentatives of birds of Louisiana,
dropped in exhaustion on the ship.
Rescuers Kilbey and Bloomberg force
fed the birds farina, chopped ham,
and chopped scrambled eggs. Some
didn't survive the ordeal, but quite
a few of the refugees began showing
an interest in life once more.
Eight days is a long time for a
voyage. But the passengers were
congenial and the ship's officers said
everyone was cooperative and there
were few complaints.
There were a few spills, though,
just as there are in any storm at sea.
Joe Cicero, former outfielder with the
Boston Red Sox and minor league
teams, had the surprise of his life
when his chair went with him across
the floor and both toppled together
when the vessel went through a rough
sea while homeward-bound. William
Hollowell said he was about to sit
down in the dining room when there
was a lurch and he went right under
the table. He got up and had his
dinner, undaunted.
The passengers on this lengthy trip
got a special bonus in the dining
room, they recounted. They had two
special dinners, one similar to the

ut Blow

Captain's dinner but minus balloons,
for the chef twice went through the
menus for a trip.
Not even laundry posed a problem.
Some laundry was done in the ship's
laundry room, and the vessel on
arrival in Cristobal picked up laundry
that had been left on the Isthmus the
last trip.
The ship carries only one film to
be shown passengers during a voyage,
but a film was borrowed from the

$73,800 Goal

In UF Appeal

With the Panama Canal organiza-
tion topping its United Fund goal of
$73,800 this week, attention was
focused on the UF Trade Fair open-
ing tonight at Corozal. PanCanal
United Fund officials expected that
the final total of the Canal organiza-
tion's contribution might exceed
$85,000 toward the overall goal of
In the absence of the Governor,
Lt. Gov. David S. Parker congratu-
lated the Marine Bureau Monday as
the first major bureau to top its dollar
goal. With a $16,200 goal, the Marine
Bureau effort had surpassed $17,000
by then with the total still incomplete.
The Office of the Governor, Office
of the Comptroller, Personnel Bureau
and some smaller units had all
exceeded their goals.
The Canal Zone Guide Service
and Panama Tourist Commission
will have a big joint exhibit booth
at the United Fund Trade Fair.
Points of interest in both the
Republic and the Canal Zone will
be stressed and there'll be movies,
SSelectravision showings, and pam-
phlets, brochures, and other litera-
ture will be available.
Samples of Panamanian dresses
will be on display, there'll be con-
juntos giving exhibitions of Pan-
amanian folk dances, opening night
and several other nights, and on
Wednesday night, October 21,
Lucho Azcirraga will play.
Canal Zone Governor Fleming will
cut the ribbon to open the trade fair
and bazaar at 7 p.m. He will be
assisted by Roberto Eisenmann, Jr.,
President of the Chamber of Com-

merce of Panama City, with other
officials also expected to attend.
The trade fair will be open to the
public until October 31, hours 6 to
10 p.m. each evening, including
weekends. There'll be 1965 model
cars on display, exhibits and sales
rooms of Panama's top merchants and
sales representatives, games for both
adults and young people, and
There's an admission charge of 10
cents this year to enter the trade fair
building-a one-time charge good for
admittance on all 14 days of the fair.

Tropical Differential Now

15 Percent For New Hires

The added compensation known as
the "tropical differential" now paid
U.S.-citizen employees of Federal
agencies in the Canal Zone is changed
from 25 to 15 percent for new hires
effective with the pay period starting
October 11.
For current employees, other than
dependents, the dollar amount of the
differential will not be reduced. It
will be retained at the July 20, 1964,
level without increase during future
pay raises until such time as 15 per-
cent of the attained base salary
exceeds the dollar amount of the
Three key provisions: Anyone who
is the head of a household will
receive the 15 percent differential;
place of employment (locally or in
the States) has no bearing; no
differential will be paid dependents.
In accord with the July 20 freeze
on the dollar amount of differential
individuals then employed were
receiving, the amount of this differen-
tial will be added to any base pay to
which he is entitled. Base pay in-
creases will be continued.
The new regulations follow:
(a) An overseas, tropical differen-
tial for United States citizen em-

ployees who qualify under the provi- ident of the Canal Zone or the
sions of paragraph (b) of this section Republic of Panama who is under

New First Aid Class

Starts Monday Night

A new First Aid Class will be
started by W. Gordon, Canal Zone
Red Cross instructor, at a meeting of
the Paraiso Civil Defense Corps to
be held at the Paraiso High School
on Monday, October 19, at 7:30 p.m.
Residents of Paraiso and Pedro
Miguel interested in First Aid are
invited to attend.


Records, Records, More Records

A modest unit credited with hav-
ing saved the Panama Canal orga-
nization about a half million dollars
celebrated its 10th anniversary this
month. On October 7, 1954, it was
announced that the Administrative
Services Division had opened an
Agency Records Center in Build-
ing 9-A, Balboa, for the primary
purpose of providing economical
storage for noncurrent records.
The building had storage capacity
for about 6,000 cubic feet of rec-
ords kept in cardboard cartons on
steel shelving, but space soon proved
inadequate. As the custodians of
records in PanCanal units became
aware of savings in office space and
file equipment to be gained by using
the center, accessions came pouring
in and the walls bulged.
Today, 10 years and two moves
later, the center is located in Build-
ing 42-D on Diablo Road. In this
warehouse-type structure are now
stored about 26,500 cubic feet of
records. Keeping this volume of rec-
ords at the center is an estimated
$73,000 a year cheaper than keeping
it in office space.
Only a few groups of records are
retained indefinitely. During each
of the past 2 years, the volume of
records disposed of from the center
has slightly exceeded the intake vol-

ume. Most records are destroyed at
the end of specified retention periods
published in records control sched-
ules. Some paper records are micro-
filmed before destruction and the
filmed copies are retained.
When a records disposal job is
scheduled at the center, a report of
disposition is sent to the original cus-
todian of the records. Even though
destruction is authorized in a rec-
ords control schedule, no record at
the center is disposed of without first
getting the signed approval of the
custodian on this report.
"When records are properly sched-
uled, there's seldom a problem about
their disposition," says William S.
Wigg, chief of the records manage-
ment staff under which the center
operates. "But before we had an
Agency Records Center, people en-
gaged in the office space race some-
times arbitrarily and illegally threw
away important records material.
We still suffer from some of those
In an average year, employees of
the center fill about 17,500 refer-
ence requests. Each office that trans-
fers records to the center receives a
copy of a shelf list on which the of-
fice's records are identified and loc-
ated by shelf number. Referral to
this list gives the exact location.

Shelf lists are amended as necessary
when disposals occur.
D. F. Mead, who has supervised
the center since it was established,
reminisced about the reference serv-
ice. "Over the past 10 years, there
have been a few times-a very few-
when we couldn't locate a record
we were supposed to have. To bal-
ance that, we've located plenty of
tough ones where the requester
wasn't sure exactly what he wanted
or where the record should be. We
can't afford to describe a record
wrong on a shelf list'or make a mis-
take in refiling at the center.
"After all, if the records here were
in 4-drawer file cabinets, we'd need
over 4,400 of them, and side-by-side
the cabinets would extend over a
mile. Laid end-to-end the paper in
those cabinets would stretch from
here to London, England-traveling
west. Imagine trying to find a link
in that chain without knowing its
longitude and latitude."
As might be expected, the largest
users of center facilities are the paper
mills of the organization. Records
.of the Office of the Comptroller, the
Personnel Bureau, the Health Bu-
reau, and the Administrative Serv-
ices Division constitute the bulk of
the volume held. Almost every com-
ponent of the organization, however,
uses the center's facilities to some

obviously not so modest in scope.
Over the 10-year period since its in-

Cargo carried through the Pan-
ama Canal during fiscal year 1964 hit
an all-time high, according to official
figures compiled for the 12-month
period ending June 30. Commercial
and U.S. Government ships of all
sizes carried 71,273,591 long tons
through the Canal, nearly 8 mil-
lion more than the previous fiscal
year of 1963, when cargo tonnage
totaled 63,371,426 long tons.
The last cargo record was set in
fiscal year 1962 when the 12-month
total came to 68,650,970 for ocean-
going commercial and Government-
owned ships.
As in previous recent years, ships
flying the flags of Norway, Great
Britain and West Germany stood
second, third and fourth respectively
as users of the Canal in fiscal year
1964. Ships of the U.S. merchant
marine were numerous, with a total
of 1,695 transits during the year.


For performance of his duties with the Panama Canal in a manner that has
been "a credit to his home state of Kentucky," J. Patrick Conley has been
appointed a Kentucky Colonel by Kentucky Governor Edward T. Breathitt.
Conley, Assistant Executive Secretary, is shown above, left, after presenta-
tion of the appointment certificate by Governor Fleming. Others of the Canal
Zone Governor's staff present for the ceremony were, left to right, John
D. Hollen, Robert S. Jeffrey, and Paul M. Runnestrand, shown with Governor
Fleming, right. Conley and the Kentucky governor were friends while
attending the University of Kentucky Law School and shared experiences
at national political conventions before Conley joined the Canal organization
some 10 years ago.

Old Copies Of Review

Library "Book Bait"

Recent acquisition of some wel-
come "book bait" has put the Canal
Zone Library-Museum in the posi-
tion of being able to acquire needed
books and back issues of magazines.
The "bait" is thousands of back
issues of The Panama Canal Review,
dating back to 1950, made available
to the library through the Informa-
tion Office.
The entire downstairs workroom
in the Civil Affairs Building has been
bulging with them. Packages of Re-
views were stacked on top of book
shelves to the ceiling, under tables,
and in every available spot.
The library staff is suffering the
inconvenience for a purpose: for the
privilege of having excellent ex-
change material on hand. The library
long has been eager for excess local
material to use in setting up an ex-
change program with other libraries.
The exchange program will work
this way, explains Mrs. Eleanor
Burnham, Librarian-Curator:


Notes Say Thanks

For Happy Time

At Summit Gardens
"Dear Governor, Thank you for
the happy time at Summit Gardens-
from your friend, Alejandra M.
This was among 22 notes sent to
Governor Fleming and the guide
who showed them around Summit
Grade IIB of the Instituto Pan
Americano made the tour. Upon
return to classes and their paper and
pencils, members of the class wrote
"thank you" notes. Many were ac-
companied by interesting art work
of the animals and birds as inter-
preted by 6 and 7-year-olds.
Most were enchanted by the alli-
gators basking in the lily pond.
Others were thrilled by the variety
of animals and birds, from the spider
monkey, ocelot and giant anteater
to the beautiful tropical birds. Either
Mancho or Gato was depicted by
one as a "horce," which might come
as a surprise to the burro. Anyway,
both charmed all the children. The
three red deer also drew special at-
tention, along with other inhabitants
of the various animal enclosures.

only until one of the following events
(1) There is a break in service of
one day or more;
(2) A two-year period had elapsed
since the effective date of this revised

(d) An employee may be paid

ing that we can provide back issues
of The Panama Canal Review in ex-
change for back issues of their pe-
riodicals or excess books.
"Since all libraries have "want

no exception, we shall include a copy
of our "want list" with the offer.

searching for and we shall send them

In the United States many libra-
ries publish studies in a series or, in
the case of a university library, use
publications of the university press
for exchange purposes.
Thus, through the exchange pro-
gram, the library here will benefit
and the Panama Canal story will be
told more widely through the Review
articles reaching a larger audience.
In similar fashion, hundreds of
back issues of the Spanish edition of
the Review have been accepted for
distribution by the Biblioteca Nacio-
nal de Panama. These also will be
used in an exchange program with
foreign libraries, making it possible
to acquire new foreign publications
to be placed at the disposal of the
reading public.
Others will be sent to libraries in
Interior towns and to public and
private schools and colleges which
might be interested. Arrival of the
stacks of Spanish Review copies also
strained temporary storage facilities,
which already were well filled with
donations of books as a result of
Panama's Book Week last month.

The new home economics equipment in the Balboa High School Home Economics Department was put to practical
use last week when the Cooking Lab was the scene of a get-together of home economics teachers with Dr. Ken-
neth E. Lake, coordinator of curriculum. Mrs. T. Dayle Norton, (far left) teacher of Home Economics I and III,
and Mrs. Charles L. Latimer (second from left), teacher of Home Economics I and II at Balboa High School,
were hostesses to the Cristobal High and Diablo Junior High School Home Economics teachers. The hostesses
are shown with Dr. Lake, Miss Sophie McLimans, Home Economics teacher in the Cristobal Junior-Senior High
School, and (far right) Mrs. Edgar Hedden, household arts teacher at the Diablo Junior High School. The
teachers, at the get-together, discussed home economics programs, proposed changes in teaching objectives, and
recommendations of equipment to implement the objectives.

The weather was fairly nice, but
cloudy, when the SS Cristobal left
New Orleans, but as the day wore
on the winds became stronger, one
of the passengers recalled. Then, at
Pilottown the notice was posted that
the ship would remain at anchor until
further notice. Sunday afternoon
brought high winds, said another
passenger, who added that the ship
turned clockwise while anchored. "It
was confusing," he added. "A house
would .be on one side and then a few
hours later that same house would be
on the other side of us." The back-
lash, everyone agreed, was stronger
than the storm as far as the Cristobal
was concerned.
The SS Cristobal sailed from the
Port of Cristobal for New Orleans
Friday night, October 9. The vessel
was to depart New Orleans Octo-
ber 15 and will arrive back in Cris-
tobal October 19, one day later than
originally scheduled. The SS Cris-
tobal will leave northbound Octo-
ber 20, instead of October 19, and
will arrive in New Orleans a day later
than scheduled, on October 24.
Starting with the next sailing, on
October 27, the ship will revert to
its normal sailing schedule.

Play Opening

The Theatre Guild will present its '
opening performance of Sunday In
New York this evening at the air-
conditioned theater in Ancon. The
play will run from October 16
through October 24, except on
Sunday. Curtain time is 8 p.m.
In this bubbly comedy of light-
hearted dialogue one of the heroine's

apartment in which she hopes to
entertain callers, is to place her
mother's bathrobe forbiddingly in

sort of mystery by Robert Van Gu-
lik. The setting of these tales is
China during the 7th century Tang
dynasty. "Judge Dee" is an actual
legendary Sherlock Holmes figure of
China. The book has several pen
and ink sketches of Judge Dee drawn
by the author.
The Real Voice is a fully doc-
umented account of Congress at
work. It covers the late Senator Es-
tes Kefauver's investigation of the
drug industry and the battle over a
new law to protect the American
public. The story is told by Richard
Harris, a New Yorker staffer, who
first published parts of it in the
magazine. In his acknowledgment,
Harris says that a year or so before
Kefauver died he let Harris in on
"what he called 'the ins and outs,
the ups and downs, and the dirty
dealings' that characterized the
years-to get an effective drug bill
through Congress." Harris has made
a fascinating story of all this which
makes much more exciting reading
than the Congressional Record.
The Lost City is a nostalgic novel
by John Gunther with Vienna of
the 1930's as its background. The
characters are marvelously well-
drawn and are interestingly present-
ed against the newspaper colony
locale there prior to World War II.
Although most people think of
Gunther as a reporter rather than
as a novelist, this book comes off well.
The Fortress is another in a long
list of successful historical novels by
Catherine Gavin. This is the love
story of the skipper of an American
ship from Portland, Maine, and a
beautiful Finnish girl. There are bat-
tles at sea, sophisticated life in Pa-
ris and St. Petersburg, and scenes in
the Finnish countryside. This story
should please historical fans since it
is smoothly written and full of ac-
tion. Dr. Gavin's previous historical
novels have included Madeleine and
The Cactus and the Crown.

otro a una vaca volando sobre noso-
tros," dijo uno de los pasajeros del
barco Crist6bal cuando el navio
atrac6 en Crist6bal el jueves pasado,
demorado 3 dias debido al huracin
Hilda. El Crist6bal sali6 de Nueva
Orleans el 1 de octubre, pero ancl6
en Pilottown en el Rio Mississippi
para esperar que amainara la furia de
la tormenta.
"La television result una gran
ayuda," dijo otro pasajero. "Obser-
vamos el progress de la tormenta, y
damos gracias a que estAbamos a
bordo del Crist6bal, en el Mississippi,
en vez de estar en Nueva Orleans
o cualquier otra Area de Louisiana,
especialmente cuando vimos todo el
dafio hecho. Aqui, a bordo, era como
estar en un hotel flotante."
Cuando el Crist6bal parti6 rumbo
a alta mar el lunes, con destino al
Puerto de Crist6bal, cientos de pAja-
ros, sorprendidos por los vientos del
huracin Hilda y llevados bien lejos
de sus nidos, se refugiaron en el
navio. Dos de los pasajeros, C. W.
Kilbey, superintendent del Ramo de
Centro de Servicios Comunales del
Canal de PanamA, y el Dr. Kenneth
Bloomberg, un oftalm6logo resident
en el Hospital Gorgas, establecie-
ron inmediatamente la "Operaci6n
Rescate de Pajaros."
Por lo menos 150 halcones, garzas,
dorales pequefios, picamaderos, tor-

Louisiana, cayeron exhaustos en el
barco. Los rescatadores Kilbey y
Bloomberg forzaron a los pajaros a
alimentarse con harina de cereales,
jam6n picado y huevos revueltos
picados. Algunos no sobrevivieron a
la prueba, pero no pocos refugiados
comenzaron a demostrar interns en
la vida una vez mis.

Ocho dias es much tiempo para
un viaje. Pero los pasajeros conge-
niaron y los oficiales del barco dije-

pocas quejas.

"Muchas Gracias por Tiempo Feliz

Pasado en los Jardines de Summitt"

Escriben Escolares al Gobernador Fleming
En total son veintid6s cartitas del tenor del encabezado pero en
idioma ingles las que recibieron, tanto el Gobernador de la Zona del
Canal, Robert J. Fleming, Jr., como el guia que sirvi6 de cicerone a
grupo de escolares del Instituto Panamericano de PanamA que visitaron
los jardines de Summit hace poco.
Muchas de las gentiles esquelas vienen adornadas con graciosos
dibujitos trazados por los nifios de entire 6 y 7 afios, quienes cursan el
Segundo Grado B del plantel citado arriba. Los dibujos muestran aves
o animals que vieron durante su paseo a los jardines de Summit.
La mayoria de los escolares quedaron fascinados al ver los lagartos
asoleAndose, mansa e incongruentemente, en el estanque de lirios. Otros
seguian con pupilas Avidas el revolotear de aves de vistoso plumaje, o
admiraban, por primera vez, un ocelote, un mono inquieto y juguet6n
o un oso hormiguero, gigantesco y hocicudo, o los tres venaditos de
cobriza piel.
Los apacibles burritos, Mancha y Gato, merecieron particulares
atenciones de los alegres escolares del IPA, quienes pasaron ratos de
solaz y esparcimiento, cabe la amable placidez del ambiente florido,
saturado de sutiles aromas de las plants tropicales.
Y, como dice la gentil Alejandra M. Cufre en su cartita, "Gracias a
usted, querido Gobemador, por el tiempo feliz en los jardines de Summit."

La relaci6n entire las horas del dia
con los ataques al coraz6n demues-
tran claramente lo mismo que los es-
tudios sobre actividades. Los ata-
ques al coraz6n pueden ocurrir en
cualquier moment y la distribuci6n
es puramente casual.
Un grupo de investigadores del
Institute de Medicina Fisica y Reha-
bilitaci6n en Nueva York, el cual in-
cluye hombres de la talla de Howard
Rusk y Paul Dudley White, nos da
otros detalles interesantes para sumar
a nuestros conocimientos sobre qui6-
nes sufrirnn ataques al coraz6n y
cuando. Ellos encontraron cosas co-
mo las siguientes: el peso del cuerpo
de hombres con presi6n arterial nor-
mal no tiene ningun significado; en-
tre mais alto es el individuo menos
probabilidades de que sufra un ata-
que al coraz6n; mientras mis alta
este la colesterina existen mAs pro-
babilidades de sufrir un ataque. Si
ambos padres sufren de afecci6n co-
ronaria es mis probable que se su-
fra un ataque, pero si s6lo es uno
de ellos no se corre mas peligro que
el resto del puiblico en general.
El Dr. William Dock en Brooklyn
nos brinda conocimientos adiciona-
les. Todos sabemos que si somos
blancos, del sexo masculine, estamos
mas propenso a sufrir una "corona-
ria" que si fu6ramos blancos del sexo
femenino. Esto no quiere decir que
las mujeres blancas son inmunes: Pe-
ro Keil y McVay en Atlanta, Georgia
demostraron que las mujeres negras
son susceptible a los ataques de co-
ronaria a una edad mas temprana y
en un porcentaje mas elevado que
los hombres negros. Se estAn lle-

Las dietas y la afeccidn al coraz6n
han tomado el primer lugar en los
debates caseros y m6dicos. En Min-
neApolis, los doctors Lober y Brag-
don efectuaron studios sobre la acu-
mulaci6n de atromato de colesteri-
na en la tinica interior de los vasos
sanguineos de conejos y niflos. Pu-
dieron encontrar una rnpida acumu-
laci6n en los vasos sanguineos de co-
nejos lactantes la cual desaparecia
al ser destetados. Pero en los nifios,
que continuaban tomando leche, los
dep6sitos de grasa continuaban. La

Las personas obesas mueren 150%
mas rApido que las personas de peso

mente cuando observamos las afec-
ciones coronarias. Por ejemplo, la
coronaria afecta a las mujeres obe-
sas un 175% de veces mis que a las
mujeres de peso normal. No todos
los studios que se han llevado a
cabo dan base al hecho de que si
USTED bajara de peso correria me-
nos peligro de sufrir un ataque al
coraz6n. Pero generalmente este es
el caso. Los individuos normales o
bajos de peso viven mas y las afec-
ciones al coraz6n entran en el pa-
tr6n normal. Las personas gordas
mueren del coraz6n mAs frecuente-
mente que personas flacas.
Probablemente cl uso excesivo del
alcohol aumenta la colesterina en la
sangrc y causa que la sangre se coa-
gule mas rApidamente que lo nor-
mal. Y si esto es asi, puede aumen-
tar el peligro de un ataque al coraz6n.
El Dr. Meyer Friedman en San
Francisco, quien estA llevando a ca-
bo la investigaci6n de cientos de in-
dustriales para decubrir o probar su
aseveraci6n de que si existe una "per-
sonalidad coronaria", (el active, el
marcador del tiempo, el que fuma
en exceso, el tipo "ejecutivo") pien-
sa que la adrenaline o su pariente
cercano, la noradrenalina, es la vi-
llana de las coronarias. Y qu( hay
sobre tension y comportamiento? Se
sugiere que el hombre competitive,
irritable, intensive, concienzudo y
trabajador es mas propenso al ata-
que. Pero este tipo de persona tam-
bikn come mis, bebe mAs, fuma mis,
etc., que su rival menos competitive.
So ha demostrado que la frustraci6n,
el desengaiio y la ira aumentan el
sucro de colesterina. Si el suero de
colesterina es un indicio de suscep-
tibilidad a los ataques del coraz6n,

gracias a mejores servicios y cuida-
dos medicos.

que ha sido "un credito para su estado
natal de Kentucky," ha sido nom-
brado Coronel de Kentucky el Sr.
J. Patrick Conley por el Gobernador
de Kentucky, Edward T. Breathitt.

Durante el afio fiscal de 1964 se estableci6 una niieva marca para el volume de carga
transportada a trav6s del Canal de Panami conforme a datos oficiales compilados sobre el
period de doce meses que cerr6 el 30 de junio reci6n pasado. Esta es la marca mis alta de
todos los tiempos y monta a 71.273.591 toneladas largas Ilevadas a bordo de naves mercantes
LI oficiales del Gobierno de Estados Unidos. La nueva marca supera, en casi ocho millones
v medio de toneladas, la registrada en el afio fiscal precedent (1963). En ese period tran-
sitaron por el Canal de Panama 63.371.426 toneladas largas de carga.
La marca anterior qued6 establecida en el afio fiscal de 1962, cuando transitaron por la
via interoceanica istmefia 68.650.970 toneladas largas de carga en un period de doce meses.
Al igual que en afios recientes los principals usuarios del Canal por matricula de pais
fueron los siguientes, Estados Unidos, primero; Noruega, segundo; Gran Bretafia, tercero y
Alemania Occidental, cuarto.
