to the Panama Canal organization.

Cot. Parfitt

Arrives in

Canal Zone
Col. Harold R. Parfitt, named to
succeed Col. David S. Parker as
Lieutenant Governor of the Canal
Zone, arrived last weekend and will
take office upon Colonel Parker's de-
parture from the Zone. Colonel Par-
fitt's wife and two daughters have
not yet arrived on the Isthmus.
Colonel Parker and his family plan
to leave the Isthmus June 26. The
former Lieutenant Governor, recently

General, will be Division Engineer,

Academy at West Point. His most
recent assignment was as Jackson-
ville (Fla.) District Engineer for the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, where
he was engaged in civilian and mil-
itary construction in Florida, Puerto
Rico, the Virgin Islands, and here in
the Canal Zone. A World War II
veteran, Colonel Parfitt received his
master's degree in civil engineer-
ing from Massachusetts Institute of

164 Students Join

PC for the Summer

The Panama Canal organization,
as in previous years, is employing
college students and June high school
graduates as student assistants. This
year 164 students are employed in
various offices from June 8 to Sep-
tember 3. Their help will reduce the
workload caused by vacation ab-
A breakdown of student assistants:
Civil Affairs, 12; Comptroller, 36;
Engineering and Construction, 49;
Executive Planning Staff, 1; General
Counsel, 1; Transportation and Ter-

Office, 2; Personnel, 6; Safety
Branch, 1; Administrative Services,
5; Magistrate's Court, 1; Marine
Bureau, 12; Supply and Community
Service, 19.

The English language has many
strange quirks and peculiar pro-
nunciations, we all know. Some one
wrote a poem about it. Perhaps you'll
enjoy it, too. Here 'tis:

We'll begin with a box, and the
plural is boxes.
But the plural of ox should be oxen,
not oxes.
Then one fowl is a goose, but two
are called geese,
Yet the plural of mouse should
never be meesb,
You may find a lone mouse or a
whole set of. mice,
Yet the pllral of house is houses,
not hice.
If the plural of man is always
called men, -1
Why shouldn't the plural of-pan be
called pen?
IF-I speak of a foot and you show
me your feet,
And I give you a boot, would a
pair be called beet?
If one is a tooth and a whole set
are teeth,
Why shouldn't the plural of booth
be called beeth?
Then one may be that, and three
would be those
Yet hat in the plural wouldn't be
An the plural of cat is cats and
not cose.
We speak of a brother and also of
But though we say Mother, we
never say Methren.
Then the masculine pronouns are
he, his and him,
But imagine the feminine she, shis
and shim!
So English,. I fancy you all will
Is the funniest language you ever
did see.

Precauciones generals para el cuidado y
almacenamiento de cilindros de gases comprimidos

No permit la cafda de los cilindros ni los choques entire sf.
Los cilindros pueden ser almacenados en campo abierto, pero en tal
caso, se protegeran contra los rigores del clima y contra la humedad del
suelo. En sitios chlidos, se debe evitar la exposici6n continue de los ci-
lindros a los rayos director del sol.
La tapa de protecci6n de la v6lvula debe permanecer colocada en cada
cilindro hasta cuando 6ste se encuentre listo para su uso, colocado y ase-
gurado en el soporte para cilindros o en el sitio de trabajo.
Evite arrastrar, rodar o deslizar los cilindros, alin distancias cortas.
Ellos deben ser movilizados por medio de una carretilla de mano o de cual-
quier otro dispositivo aprobado.
No toque los dispositivos de seguridad localizados en la valvula o en
el cilindro.
Nunca almacene los cilindros vacios junto con los Ilenos. Al conectar
un cilindro vacfo a un sistema bajo presi6n se puede presentar un retro-
ceso de material dentro del cilindro, con consecuencias graves.
Ninguna parte de un cilindro debe ser sometida a temperatures supe-
riores a 51,5C (125F). Nunca se debe permitir a una llama entrar en
contact con alguna de las parties de un cilindro de gas comprimido.
No coloque los cilindros en sitios donde pueda convertirse en parte de
un circuit eldctrico. En presencia de soldadura electrica de arco se deben
tomar precauciones para evitar quo el cilindro pueda entrar en contact
con el arco.

Existe tambidin al puosiitictu ti a e
que los bombillos sean inflamados
por rayos de radar o par corrientes
perdidas. Al inflamarse uno de los
bombillos se pueden inflamar los que
estin adyacentes a el.
En este caso, la causa de la ignicidn
fue aparentemente la electricidad
estdtica acumulada por el fotdgrafo
y que fue generada, bien al caminar
o al frotar la bolsa de cuero contra su
traje. Consecuentemente se puede
decir que es indispensable mantener
los bombillos en su empaque original.
Tambidn deben impartirse instruc-
ciones a los fot6grafos para que se
rantengan alejados de los rayos de
radar y corrientes perdidas.

Los Estados Unidos pondrdn prdxi-
mamente al servicio un nuevo invent
para el levantamiento de la part de

Despedida a la Sra. Deerwester

La Sra. Lois Jean Deerwester,
quien durante los iltimos 8 afios ha
sido la secretaria de los Vicegober-
nadores de la Zona del Canal, le esta
diciendo adi6s a sus amistades en el
Istmo, y junto con su esposo, Mel
Deerwester, se embarcarAn, el 24 de
julio, en el Santa Mercedes, hacia
Estados Unidos.
Mel Deerwester, Jefe del Servicio
del Comando Sur, de Cine .para el
Ejercito y la Fuerza Aerea, ha sido
trasladado a Nueva York, donde serai
Subgerente del Ramo de Distribu-
ci6n y Compras, en el Servicio de
Cine para la Fuerza Aerea y el Ej6r-
La Sra. Deerwester ha servido du-
rante un total de 15 afios al Gobierno
de Estados Unidos. Antes de traba-

jar para el Canal, estuvo con la Ofi-
cina de Informaci6n en Quarry
Heights. Trabaj6 en la Direcci6ri de
Personal del Canal de PanamA y
luego en la Oficina de Planificaci6n
antes de ser trasladada a la oficina
del Vicegobemador.
A la Sra. Deerwester se le otorg6
clasificaci6n de "Cumplimiento So-
bresaliente," durante el period de
junior de 1964 a junie de 1965, como
reconocimiento official de su trabajo.
El document de recomendaci6n
dice en parte: "En su trabajo no
acepta nada que no sea perfect y
su cuidado por los detalles, marca
un ejemplo a otras oficinas que pre-
paran trabajos para la firma del
Gobernador o del Vicegobernador.
Los esposos Deerwester residirAn
en Montclair, Nueva Jersey.



La compafiia DuPont, precursora en la investigaci6n de accidents
fuera del trabajo tiene un program complete de seguridad basado
en estos cuatro elements:

Se sabe que todos los necesitan
Porque las lesiones en el hogar son la causa principal de la
muerte de nifios.
Porque los autom6viles que conducen los j6venes y adults son
las mAquinas mAs destructoras que existen en manos del publico.
Porque los padres lo necesitan para dar el buen ejemplo a los
Porque los deportistas y los que viajan necesitan del program
para no sufrir lesiones que impidan el disfrute de los ratos de espar-
Porque los ancianos son los mAs expuestos a sufrir caidas y
quedar lisiados. Esto les convierte en una carga para los familiares.

Hay mas seguridad en el trabajo que fuera de 61
Muchos empleados trabajan para industries que les estimulan
a adoptar la seguridad.
No es suficiente que el trabajador aplique fuera del trabajo
algunos de sus conocimientos sobre seguridad. En Estados Unidos
hay un promedio de 232 millones de lesionados, fuera del trabajo,
por afio.
Las lesiones ocurren casi siempre en la casa. Siguen las sufridas
en la via p6blica, campos de deported y por iltimo las provocadas por
accidents de transito. La mayoria de las muertes son provocadas por
accidents de transito.

Debe ser parte integral del program de seguridad
en el trabajo
La industrial ha tenido 6xito en la reducci6n de sus accidents.
La experiencia adquirida debe ser 16gicamente aplicada a la seguri-
dad fuera del trabajo.
Hay various estimulos para que la industrial ayude en esto uiltimo:
el deseo de mejorar las relaciones p6blicas; reducir los costs de ope-
raci6n; contribuir a la seguridad de los empleados, al bienestar de la
comunidad, etc. Sin embargo, cualquiera que sea la raz6n, los acci-
dentes en la via publica, en el hogar, en la prActica de deportes,
etc., han aumentado en tal proporci6n que la industrial no tiene otra
alternative que compartir la responsabilidad en la implantaci6n de
medidas preventivas. Esta acci6n es-obviamente-humanitaria, pero
tambien razonable y econ6mica.

La seguridad fuera del trabajo beneficia a todos
Las lesiones fuera del trabajo afectan a la economic national.
El costo de fabricaci6n de mercancias es aumentado por las lesiones
de los traba;adores. Asi ocurran en el trabajo o fuera de 6l. Algunos
de los factors que incident sobre los costs son:
Necesidad de personal de relevo y de su adiestramiento.
Desperdicio de products y dafio al equipo provocado por los
trabajadores inexpertos en la operaci6n.
Ttabajo adicional que se impone a la supervision.
Los empleados lesionados que regresan al trabajo no pueden
rendir al maximo.
Aumento en el pago de seguros de salud y accidents, de cirugia,
hospital, de seguros colectivos de vida y demAs.
Costo adicional por salaries de invalidez.
Al ocurrir lesiones fuera del trabajo se aumenta la labor de
los hospitals, centros de rehabilitaci6n, orfanatos y entidades de
bienestar pfblico. Estos servicios comunales, generalmente sobre-
cargados de trabajo, ven mermar ain mAs su eficiencia. En muchos
casos estas organizaciones son mantenidas por los contribuyentes de
impuestos o gracias a fondos donados de modo voluntario. Por tanto
las lesiones fuera del trabajo afectan a todos en una comunidad.

Los miembros de la Asociaci6n de
Radio Aficionados de la Zona del
Canal, de Balboa, y los "hams" loca-
les se concentrarAn en la Isla de
Naos, Fuerte Amador, el sAbado 26
de junio, para participar en las acti-
vidades del Dia Anual de Campo.
Este event es de carActer mundial
y se llevarA a cabo, en condiciones
de emergencia, utilizando receptores,
transmisores y generadores portiti-
Se harAn contacts en todas las

radiofrecuencias de aficionados, tan-
to comunicaci6n verbal por radio-
tel6fono, como por mensajes en c6-
digo, y se otorgarAn certificados a
los clubes que consigan el mayor
n6mero de contacts durante el pe-
riodo de 24 horas.
Los visitantes y personas intere-
sadas, podrAn acercarse al Area de
meriendas en la Isla Naos y obser-
var a los radioaficionados en acci6n,
durante el event.

Fue un moment sumamente feliz-La Sra. Lois Jean Deerwester, secretaria
r'rivada del Vicegobernador del Canal de PanamA, David S. Parker, sostiene
el certificado de Servicios Distinguidos y el cheque por $200, que su jefe
acaba de entregarle. La sonrisa de la Sra. Deerwester es tambi6n distinguida.
