Fresh Frozen

Milk Trial

Is Scheduled
Fresh frozen milk may help cut
mounting losses at Mindi Dairy while
meeting Canal Zone consumer de-
mands during expansion of Panama's
dairy industry.
The Panama Canal buys some
780,000 quarts of raw milk each year
from Panama dairy farms. This is
processed at its plant in Mount Hope
for resale to the consumer. Military
personnel and their dependents buy
about 1,548,000 quarts a year from
Panama. But in addition, the Mindi
farm must produce 1,600,000 quarts
a year to meet demands in the Canal
Zone which Panama has been unable
to supply.
For some time Canal officials have
been seeking a more economic fresh
milk supply. An experimental one-
time shipment of approximately
19,000 quarts of fresh frozen milk
has been ordered from Brown's
Velvet Dairy Products Co. of New
Orleans as a possible solution to the
Extensive studies by Health Bureau
specialists and the Supply and Com-
munity Service Bureau, using small
quantities of the product, have indi-
cated the feasibility of the plan. The
larger shipment, due to arrive on the
Isthmus June 7, will help round out
the study and permit an evaluation
of consumer reaction, transportation,
storing and distribution methods.
Meanwhile, Canal officials are con-
tinuing discussions with the Panama
Cattlemen's Association with the
view of obtaining a larger supply of
approved milk from Panama pro-
ducers for Canal Zone consumption.
Tests have shown that the frozen
milk, shipped in space-saving square
cartons, loses none of its flavor or
nutrient values.
The New Orleans supplier meets
all the requirements of the U.S.
Public Health Service and is so

Old Grey Mule on Last Journey

One of the Panama Canal's old
grey mules started its last journey
recently when it was loaded aboard
the U.S. Navy LST Talbot County
at Gamboa by the Panama Canal
Dredging Division crane Hercules.
U.S. 868, one of the original Pan-
ama Canal towing locomotives fur-
nished by General Electric in 1914
to guide transiting ships through the
locks, is en route to Niskayana, N.Y.,
where it will be placed on display at
the American Museum of Electricity.
The trip north aboard the Talbot
County is the first that old 868 has
made away from the Canal Zone since
arriving here from the General Elec-
tric factory at Schenectady, N.Y. The
locomotive was put in service at
Pedro Miguel locks and worked there
most of the past 50 years.
During the half century of service,
No. 868 has participated in approxi-
mately 100,000 lockages, or about
one-third of the 50-year total at Pedro
Miguel, and has required only the
usual maintenance, repairs, and
replacement of minor parts.

mately 43 tons, is 33 feet long, 10 feet
high, and travels on a 5-foot gage
track. Its speed was 2 miles per hour
with a 25,000-pound pulling capacity.
In preparation for its new role in a
museum, the old mule was restored
to first-class appearance and painted
standard colors. It then was trans-
ferred to the deck of the Hercules,
where it awaited the arrival of the
Talbot County.
This is the second of the original
Panama Canal mules to be sent to the
United States for display in a mu-
seum. The first to become a museum
piece was U.S. 662, which was sent
to the National Museum of Transport
in St. Louis, Mo., in August 1964 in
observance of the 50th anniversary
of the Panama Canal. It was pre-
sented by Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr.,
at Pedro Miguel locks to Everett T.

Fire Force

Twenty-two firemen completed
6 weeks basic training at the Rodman

the Canal Zone fire department as
members of two additional fire com-
panies added to Balboa and Mount

Swing your partners is executed with enthusiasm as Canal Zone girls of Girl Scout Cadette Troop No. 23 teach
girls of Bella Vista Children's Home, Panama City, the art of square dancing. The Canal Zone Girl Scouts, in
uniform, are Jean de la Pefia, Connie Clinchard, and Christine Conoan.

Troop's Service Project

On International Level

Community service on an inter-
national level was the aim of Cadette
Troop No. 23 in the troop's work for
the Games Leader Badge. The girls
of the troop chose to go to the Bella
Vista Children's Home in Panama
City, which is sponsored by St.
Luke's Cathedral, also the sponsoring
unit of this Cadette troop, to teach
the Bella Vista girls typical U.S.
games and dances.
There are 30 girls in the Bella
Vista Children's Home. Their ages
range from 6 to 18, with the majority
in the younger age group.
During the dry season and Pan-
ama's school vacation period, in
March and April, the Cadettes took
turns going to the Home, four to six
girls at a time, on Tuesday and
Saturday afternoons. The main
activity was teaching and joining in
playing outdoor games, together with
the teaching of some singing and
dancing, including beginning square
dancing. The girls at the Home
became enthusiastic about square
dancing and the Cadettes left them
a square dance record.
The Canal Zone girls and the Pan-
amanian girls practiced each others'
language, and Marcie Collins, with
her fluency in Spanish, proved indis-
pensable when a sudden translation
was needed.
Just before Panama's schools
opened for the new session, a party
was planned and carried out by the
Cadettes, who attended in uniform
this time. A three-legged race, new
to the Bella Vista girls, was specta-
cular as well as successful. The girls
liked, too, their introduction to a

with the square dancing. The Cadet-

all singing the familiar Girl Scout

have learned.

Sfe. Milton L. Bridges, left, receives citation from Lt. Gov. David S. Parker.

ROTC Instructor Honored;

Helped Train Over 1,000

Praise for his work as Reserve Offi-
cers' Training Corps instructor and
for his efforts in introducing Balboa
High School students to the mysteries
of military science was given by
Lt. Gov. David S. Parker to Sfc.
Milton L. Bridges, who has been non-
commissioned officer in charge of
instruction at Balboa High School
Reserve Officers Training Corps unit
for the past 4 years.
In an informal ceremony in the
Lieutenant Governor's office at
Balboa Heights, Sergeant Bridges
was presented a master key certifi-
cate to the Panama Canal making
him local professor of military
science. He and his wife received
miniature keys to the Panama Canal
Also present were J. B. Clem-

Civil Affairs Bureau, and C. L.
Latimer, Jr., Acting Superintendent
of Schools.

Proud of ROTC Program
Lieutenant Governor Parker said
he believes the Reserve Officers

is most useful and productive and
that the local high school program
is especially effective. He said he is
proud of the ROTC program in

the training will be expanded in the
Sergeant Bridges, he said, had

recent years. He pointed out that


Advance copies of the new short
novel, The Star Within, by Dr.
Donald Robinson, of the Industrial
Health Service of the Canal Zone
Government, are now on the Isthmus.
One copy already is available for
loan at the Canal Zone Library-
Museum and a full supply is on
order. The Star Within is well-plotted
with effective suspense and an ample
adnmixture of exciting action. The
scene is Egypt during the reign of
Caesar Augustus and the story centers
around a priest-physician whose

Anyone who ever was a Tiger is
asked to telephone 36-242, reporting
name and mailing address so that the
Cristobal High School counselors can
forward a questionnaire for comple-

other former Cristobal High School
students no longer on the Isthmus
also will be appreciated. If known,
the years these students attended

Science Article

Tells of Fossil

Finds on Isthmus
An article by Dr. Frank C. Whit-
more, Jr., Washington, D.C., and
Robert H. Stewart, Panama Canal
geologist, appears in the April 9
issue of Science. Dr. Whitmore is a
paleontologist on the staff of the U.S.
Geological Survey.
Entitled "Miocene Mammals and
Central American Seaways," the
article deals with how fossil finds
here as a result of cut-widening work
provided another missing link in
geological history.
The technical paper, illustrated
with two maps, explains how fauna
of the Canal Zone indicate separa-
tion of Central and South America
until about 5 million years ago.
A brief account of the findings was
published in the February 12, 1965,
issue of the SPILLWAY.
So important were the fossil dis-
coveries that Dr. Whitmore and Dr.
W. P. Woodring, research associate
with the Smithsonian Institution,
Washington, D.C., came to the
Isthmus themselves.

firefighters and 3 officers each at
Mount Hope and Balboa and 1 com-
pany of the same size at Corozal,

Training of Canal Zone firemen is
being carried out on a continuous
basis, using for practice purposes the
former firefighting school at Rodman,
an area recently leased to the Canal
Zone by the U.S. Navy.
Since adequate training facilities
also were recommended by the Na-

methods of fighting various types of

Veintid6s bombers han comple-
tado el adiestramiento de 6 semanas
efectuado en el centro de adiestra-
miento de Rodman; al terminar su
ciclo de adiestramiento la semana
pasada han sido admitidos al cuerpo
de bombers de la Zona del Canal
como integrantes de dos compafiias
adicionales a las estaciones de Balboa
y Mount Hope.
El incremento en el cuerpo de
"comellamas" forma parte de las re-
comendaciones hechas en 1963 por
la Junta Nacional de Aseguradores
Contra Incendios en informed especial
sobre la Zona del Canal.
Las dos compafiias adicionales en-
trafian un esfuerzo para ofrecer
mayor protecci6n de vida y hacienda,
asi como mayor capacidad para don-
frontar emergencies.
El personal ahora incorporado al
cuerpo de bombers comprende 12
novatos asi como 10 ex bombers que
vuelven a reintegrarse al cuerpo. Se
trata de 16 bombers y 6 oficiales.
Todos participaron por igual en las
classes de adiestramiento prActico y
El adiestramiento se realize bajo
la supervigilancia del Teniente Ken-
nith R. Coleman, de Balboa; el Tte.
Robert J. Douglas y el Sargento
Arthur Evans de Mount Hope, asi
como los Sargentos Egbert Wilies,
Ernest T. Franklyn, y Julio Martinez,
todos del distrito del pacifico.
El cuerpo de bombers de la Zona
del Canal, al afiadirse las dos nuevas
compafiias, alcanza un total de 149
bombers y oficiales. Dos compailias
de 8 bombers y 3 oficiales cada una

El Dolor de Espalda

Y el Trabajador

La estructura 6sea del cuerpo hu-
mano; para ser mas precisos, la "ar-
quitectura," por decirlo asi, de la co-
lumna vertebral, tiene una disposi-
ci6n pobre para las funciones y el tra-
bajo que debe desarrollar. La natura-
leza la disefi6 para funcionar en una
posici6n horizontal, antes que en pos-
tura vertical. Sirve, ademAs, a manera
de compromiseo" como 6rgano movil
y de estabilidad. Compuesta de una
multitud de huesillos, junturas, liga-
mentos, misculos, nervios, membra-
nas y fluidos intersticiales, cualquiera
de los cuales puede inflamarse para
producer incomodidad y espasmos
La region inferior de la espalda es
la que casi siempre se resiente, por-
que es la parte mas d6bil de la co-
lumna vertebral; envejece con mas
rapidez que el resto. Casi todos abu-
samos constantemente de esta zona
de la estructura 6sea del cuerpo, so-
metidndola a ejercicios pesados al
doblarnos de improviso, al levantar,
arrastrar una carga, o por movimien-
tos giratorios como los del "twist."
Al levantar un objeto de 10 o 15 kilos,
en realidad aplicamos una presi6n de
500 a 600 kilos por pulgada cuadra-
da en la zona central de los discos
Nunca se dobe bruscamente como
cuando se ejercita en tocar los dedos

Foto del Navio del

Almirante Peary?

8Recuerda al SS Roosevelt? Este es
el navio que llev6 al Almirante Robert
E. Peary a la region del Polo Norte en
1909. Se necesitan aqui fotografias
e informaci6n de ese barco.
Muchas personas que residieron
aqui a fines de la d6cada de 1930
recordarAn que el Roosevelt estaba al
garete en el Caribe y que fue remol-
cado por el remolcador Tavernilla, del
Canal de PanamA, a los astilleros de
Balboa para llevarlo al dique seco y
de alli a Crist6bal. Esto termin6 los
dias del barco, porque fue encallado
v mAs tarde destruido. Sus restos han
sido localizados en el viejo canal
francs en Mount Hope.
Se desea particularmente fotogra-
fias del Roosevelt pasando por las
esclusas y cuando estaba en el viejo
canal frances. Se apreciarA tambi6n
cualquier detalle interesante relacio-
nado con el barco.
La informaci6n estA siendo solici-
tada por Julius Grigore, Jr., Subjefe
de la Divisi6n Industrial, Box 5046,
Crist6bal. El estA preparando un ar-
ticulo sobre el Roosevelt.

Seran Multicolores

Calles del Futuro

La Farbenfabriken Bayer ha de-
sarrollado en Leverkusen un m6todo
para colorear permanentemente las
calls y carreteras. La Bayer cree
que sera de mayor ayuda para los
conductors el que las calls tengan
diferentes colors a que tengan que
estar prestando atenci6n a un bos-
que de sefiales de transito. Las calls
mismas serian la guia para el moto-
rista. Ello seria de una gran ventaja,
especialmente en carreteras desco-
nocidas. Tambi4n facilitaria el doblar
a la izquierda. Zonas de peligro,
como escuelas, salidas de bombas de
incendio y ambulancias, y ain Areas
de estacionamiento, podrian marcar-
se con la ayuda de colors. En algu-
nas parties del Sur de los Estados
Unidos, son marcadas en azul las
zonas donde no se debe sonar la sire-
na. Un Area de prueba en Wupertal
ha comprobado que vale la pena
colorear las calls. Si se colorean las
calls y carreteras con pigmentos a
base de 6xido ferroso u 6xido de
cromo, pueden verse muy facilmente
bajo cualquier .uz, con excepci6n de
las luces de sodio. Este alivio para
el conductor se nota principalmente
en que ya no tendrA que estar atento
a una sucesi6n ininterrumpida de
sefiales de transito, sino que aten-
diendo nada mAs que al color de la
carretera, sus nervios sufriran much

Siete pasos para escapar

en caso de incendio

,-Conozca la salida regular o de emergencia de cualquier edificio a donde entire.

P-Si Ud. percibe humo o fuego, comunique la informaci6n exacta a la operadora del
tel6fono o a cualquier otra fuente de ayuda. Conserve la calma.

>-Toque cualquier puerta antes de abrirla. SI ESTA CALIENTE, iDEJELA CERRADA!
Cubra las ranuras alrededor de la puerta y cierre las lucetas.

P-No se exponga a riesgos innecesarios para salir del cuarto. A menos que se en-
cuentre en peligro inmediato, puede ser mas seguro quedarse donde se encuentre.

p-Si la puerta se siente fria, abrala un poco. Si el pasillo parece seguro, escape por
una salida conocida.

b-Si debe escapar pasando por entire el humo, permanezca pr6ximo al piso. Un trapo
mojado colocado sobre la cara puede ayudarle a respirar con mayor facilidad.

P-Cierre todas las puertas y ventanas que vaya dejando atras para reducir el tiraje
y retardar la propagaci6n de las llamas. *
