Combined Federal

Campaign Mapped

A new, easier way to help others
is just around the corner. And there's
a new name for it-the 1966 Canal
Zone Area Combined Federal Cam-
But there is nothing new about the
spirit of giving, nor has the purpose
of the campaign changed-to meet
the responsibility that a community
has to make possible a brighter and
more worthwhile life for those who
are less fortunate, who need the
helping hands held out by the 25
agencies in the campaign.
The 1966 campaign seeks $164,275.
About $30,000 more will be raised
for the United Fund through special
projects outside of the Combined
Federal Campaign effort. The cam-
paign runs from September 27 to
November 6.
The new name developed because
the United Fund, and the Joint
Federal Crusade (International Serv-
ice Agencies) are combining forces
in the Canal Zone to have a single
drive. This is a pattern set by the
Federal Government in all agencies.
Neither the United Fund nor the
Joint Federal Crusade will conduct
separate campaigns again. Instead,
employees will be approached just
once a year. One appeal. One
envelope to return. And the money
goes to work in 25 directions.
There's another advantage-the
cost of raising money is reduced.
That means more dollars working
where they are needed and a saving
in time and effort for the men and
women who work so hard behind
the scenes.
Twenty-one United Fund agencies
and four in the Joint Federal Cru-
sade have been approved to benefit
from the coming campaign.
Payroll deduction will be used
again this year, but on a broadened
scale, extending to all U.S. agencies
in the Canal Zone.
The United Fund special projects
started with the hit play "The King
and I." There are other plans in the

works, including an auto and boat
show, a repeat of attractions that
proved worthwhile last year, and
there may be some delightful sur-
prises in the way of entertainment.
In special projects volunteers do
most of the work and the people
who attend the functions get more
than their money's worth in enter-
The 25 agencies that will benefit
from the campaign:
In the United Fund:
American Red Cross
American Social Health Asso-
Boy Scouts, Canal Zone Coun-
Atlantic Religious Workers As-
Canal Zone Cancer Committee
Community Social Welfare Cen-
ter (Pedro Miguel Child Nur-
Girl Scouts, Canal Zone Coun-

Panama Firm Low Bidder

On Water Line Project

Another step in a long range plan
to increase the supply of potable
water to the City of Panama was
taken at Balboa Heights with the
opening of bids on the installation of
approximately 8,300 linear feet of
30-inch water main from the Los
Rios pump station to the Balboa
pump station.
The new water main will increase
the available supply of water to the
Balboa pump station from 23 to
30 million gallons a day, will allow
the Panama Canal to pump the ulti-
mate capacity of the Miraflores Fil-
tration Plant and make 30 million
gallons a day available to Panama
An apparent low bid of $254,999
was submitted on the project by the
Panama contracting firm of Compa-
nia Pan Caribe. This bid covers the
cost of installation of cast iron water
mains. A second offer of $307,999
was on an alternate specification for
concrete pressure pipe.
Six other firms entered bids rang-
ing from $336,610 to $440,000 for
the installation of cast iron pipe and
from $323,730 to $394,444 for

The specifications require that the
successful contractor complete the
work within 270 days, or 9 months.
The expansion program to meet
the ever-growing needs of Panama
and Colon for pure safe water for
consumer use and fire protection was
initiated in 1958 and has included
installation of new water mains in
the Canal Zone on both sides of the
Isthmus and the installation of
improved equipment.
Recently completed are two 20-
inch water mains extending from
Balboa to the Tivoli crossing and
the other from Balboa to Chorrillo
Reservoir at a cost of nearly
$200,000 by the Panama firm of
C. A. High.

Last Week's




Target: $164,275
The 1966 Canal Zone Area Combined Federal Campaign will start
Monday, September 27. The total goal in this campaign is $164,275. A lot
of money, to be sure. But this year there are 5 additional deserving agencies,
making a total of 25 agencies to be supported, with each agency requiring

The goal for the Panama Canal
organization is $114,890, and the
individual Bureau goals are given in
the table below.
U.S. Army regulations do not per-
mit Army commands to accept cam-
paign goals, but the U.S. Army figure
of $31,000 represents the amount the
Federal Fund-Raising Coordinating

Committee hopes will be raised by
the Army.
The share of the U.S. Air Forces'
contribution to the campaign goal
is $8,385; the U.S. Navy forces,
$4,700; U.S. Southern Command,
$2,000; other Canal Zone agencies,
$2,300, and other non-Canal Zone
agencies, $1,000.

Transit Log

Packed With

Super Ships

The increase in the size of ships
using the Panama Canal these days
was emphasized one day last week
when a parade of four big super
carriers moved southbound-one
behind the other.
Led by the 735-foot Liberian bulk
carrier Santa Fe Explorer, the ships
included the Hyperion, 707 feet, the
Johannes Fritzen, 701 feet, and the
Arcturus, 641 feet. It was probably
the largest accumulation of ship ton-
nage ever to transit on a single
morning schedule.
During the weekend there were
seven ships of more than 600 feet in
length and one giant, the Mount
Washington, measured 736 feet, with
a 102.4-foot beam.
Despite the number of big ships.
and the fact that the west lane of
Miraflores Locks is out of service,
traffic through the Panama Canal
was moving smoothly with a min-
imum of delay. The daily average
for the first 12 days was 33.3 ships
with an average Canal Zone waters
time of 14.8 hours.
The Canal has been operating on
one-lane schedule since September 4
when the west lane at Miraflores
Locks was unwatered to permit
exploratory drilling of the locks
At present Maintenance Division
forces are engaged in reinforcing
culverts and other work designed to
prevent any occurrence of the type
of failure that occurred at Pedro
Miguel Locks earlier this year. So
far, the exploratory drilling has
revealed no sign of lock floor failure.
According to the present schedule,
the west lane will be out of service
until October 1 when the east lane
will be unwatered and similar pre-
ventive maintenance work will be
carried out in that lane.
While actual operation of the
Panama Canal is running smoothly,
Panama Canal officials are still
worrying about the water supply as
dry weather continued into Septem-
ber and the level of Gatun Lake
hovered just below 83 feet.

Basin, which provides the water for

"Lite-A-Bike" Program

Pushed by VFW Here

Approximately 570 persons lost
their lives in bicycle accidents in the
United States last year. Three hun-
dred and eighty of the dead were
children under 14 years of age. More
than 30,000 suffered injuries in
bicycle accidents. A high proportion
of the fatalities occurred at dusk or
during darkness.
Because night bike-riding is dan-
gerous, and bike-riding children
continue to ride after dark, a pro-
gram was started in the United
States to make bike-riding as safe as
The program is known as the
Veterans of Foreign Wars "Lite-
A-Bike" Program. Sponsored by the
Veterans of Foreign Wars and sup-
ported by the National Safety Coun-
cil, the program has been in effect
in the United States for 3 years.

Coming Events
17-Booster Ball at the New Balboa Teen
Club. A queen will be selected.
-Third Regional Agriculture, Livestock,
Commercial, and Industrial Fair in
the Province of Bocas del Toro. It
will continue through Septem-
ber 19.
-Festival of the Patron Saint in Pocri,
province of Los Santos. It will con-
tinue through September 21. There
will be horse races, bullfights, and
18-Anniversary of the proclamation of
Independence of Chile (1810).
-Pre-Christmas Festival to raise funds
for "Nifios Pobres de Panama"
underprivileged children of Pan-
ama) in city of David. A queen,
selected from 18 debutantes, will
be crowned.
20-New SCUBA Diving Classes at the
Balboa YMCA will meet at 7 p.m.
22-National Book Week in the Republic
of Panama; continues through Sep-
tember 29.
23-Governor-U.S. Civic Council Open
Town Meeting at Margarita Service
Center, 7 p.m. The meeting is open
to all members of U.S. Civic
24-Annual Football Jamboree (Kickoff of
the Canal Zone football season) at
the Coco Solo Stadium. This will
feature the four interscholastic
Canal Zone teams. Opening cere-
monies will be at 6:15 p.m.; first
game begins at 6:45 p.m.

During this time approximately
6 million bicycles were made safer
for children and grown-ups.
This program is being introduced
in the Canal Zone Latin American
Schools, and in the Republic of
Panama, through the cooperation of
the Lions Clubs of Panama.
Bikes are made safer by attaching
reflective tape strips to the rear
fender, front forks, and the handle
bars, making the bike visible at a
distance of 1,500 feet in the beam
from the headlights of an auto-
mobile. The strips are donated by
the Minnesota Mining & Manufac-
turing Co. which has given more
than $1 million worth of tape to
date. The material is the same as
that used in reflective license plates
and traffic signs.
Any youngster on the Pacific side
of the Isthmus who would like to
have his bike laminated may do so
by taking it to Lt. Frank P. Albrook,
VFW Post 3822, Ancon, C.Z., during
weekends from 3 to 5 p.m. The
service is free of charge.

Food Poisoning

Food poisoning caused by salmo-
nella and staphlococcal germs afflicts
about a half million persons in the
United States each year. Dried eggs
used by manufacturers in various
"mixes" have been cited many times
as the cause of food poisoning when
adults and children have eaten or
tasted them in the uncooked state.
Children should not be permitted to
lick the bowl.
No one should risk using a cracked
or unclean egg, for salmonella germs
may have entered through the crack.
Raw or lightly cooked eggs in which
the white is not firm should never be
given to children or invalids. To be
on the safe side and to protect
yourself from the misery of food
poisoning always be sure eggs are
thoroughly cooked before eating

Work is under way at the Industrial Division shops on assembly of the new
engine, reduction gear, and foundation destined for the tug "Arraijan." This
is the first time the Industrial Division at Mount Hope has attempted a
repowering job. Two 500-horsepower engines are being replaced by a
1,600-horsepower engine. The "Arraijan" and her sister tug, "Alhajuela,"
are still as strong and seaworthy as when they were built in the old
Mechanical Division shops at Balboa approximately 30 years ago.

College Club's 40th Year

The Canal Zone College Club will
start its 40th year with a coffee to
welcome new and prospective mem-
bers Saturday, September 18, in the
Roosevelt Room of the Tivoli Guest

Coffee will be served at 9:30 a.m.
and a program will be presented
featuring vocal selections by Miss
Shirley Harned, accompanied by
Mrs. E. W. Zelnick. Miss Harned,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James
Harned of Curundu Heights, was
graduated from Balboa High School

2Vz years with Mrs. Roy C. Cun-
ningham and was soloist for the
"Messiah" presented 2 years ago by
the Balboa Union Church Choir.

Her first concert was given last
October at the Fort Amador Prot-
estant Chapel, and she has appeared

least 1 full year in an accredited
institution and who are interested in
becoming members are invited to
make reservations. Members are

ing. Activities of the various study
groups will be discussed, and appli-
cations for membership will be avail-
able for those interested.

Husbands! Help!
We're having wife troubles.
Not with our own wives.
But with your wives.
They tell us you often don't take
your copy of the SPILLWAY home.
Then, at parties or other events,
there's some talk about a SPILLWAY
picture or story, and wives complain
to us that they don't know what it's
all about. They haven't seen the
picture or the story.
We don't like complaining wives.
Even when they aren't our own.
So get on the ball, husbands!
Take the SPILLWAY home!

Above: Mrs. Nina J. Jenkins,
Budget Officer, Personnel Bureau, is
congratulated by Dr. Daniel J.

(Staff), as he presents certificate
granting a quality step increase.

At left: Salary and Wage Spe-
cialist Betty J. Farrell, assigned to
Personnel Policies Staff, Personnel
Bureau, smiles jubilantly as she
holds her quality step increase cer-

The awards are in recognition of
high quality performance above the
normal range of requirements of
their positions and provide a within-
grade step increase in salary.

"The File on Devlin" is Catherine
Gaskin's new novel of suspense, in-
trigue, and romance. This one in-
cludes a Nobel prize winner, a plane
crash in Afghanistan, a rich widow,
and a succession of skillful, daring
and James Bondish operatives. All
who-dun-it fans should read it.
"A Few Days in Madrid" also is
a fast-paced book of espionage, but
unlike Mrs. Gaskin's novel, this one
is set in Spain. Its author, William
Roos, has worked out a plot which
revolves around a signet ring that is
passed from assassin to assassin.
Nature lovers will enjoy "The
Golden Eagle," by Robert Murphy.
Written with keen scientific observa-
tion and with a swift, sustained pace,
the book tells the story of Kira, a
handsome female gold eagle, her
short exciting life in the high moun-
tains of Colorado, and her hazardous

who enjoyed "Ring of Bright Water"
and Murphy's former book "The

"Thomas" is a new novel by
Shirley Mydans about one of the
most brilliant and complex figures
of 12th century England-Thomas
Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury.
Mrs. Mydans has done a thorough
research job for this novel and has
come up with a dramatic and
authentic story. Readers who re-
cently saw "Becket" as portrayed by
Richard Burton with Peter O'Toole
will be particularly interested in
Mrs. Mydans' version of this moment
in history.


By Eleanor Burnham
Hans Holzer, author of "Ghosts
I've Met," writes on the subjects
of ESP, psychic experiences, and
ghosts. In this book he applies his
investigative skills to haunted houses
in the United States, the British
Isles, and Europe. He interviews the
witnesses who have seen or heard
uncanny phenomena and through
them describes the ghosts that are
said still to inhabit European castles,
cling to the walls of American
houses, or hang about lonely country
crossroads. Holzer includes in this
collection the diary of a poltergeist,
a chapter on Southern mansion
ghosts, and one entitled "New York
Is Full of Ghosts."

Herbert S. Driscoll

Assistant Harbormaster

At Balboa Is Retiring

Herbert S. Driscoll, Assistant
Harbormaster, Balboa, is retiring
this month after slightly more than
25 years with the Panama Canal
organization. He and Mrs. Driscoll
will leave the Isthmus tomorrow on
the SS Cristobal and plan, even-
tually, to make their home in Chapel
Hill, N.C.
Herb, as he is known to his
friends, first saw the Panama Canal
while on board the old U.S. Army
transport Republic in 1933. He was
stationed at Fort Amador in the 4th
Coast Artillery, and then for a time
was in Hawaii and the United States.
He returned to the Isthmus in 1939
and began work soon thereafter for
the Constructing Quartermaster of
the Army.
In 1940, he joined the Canal
organization as stevedore foreman
in the unit now known as the Ter-


Fight Nov. 6;

Tour Arranged
Tomas A. Cupas is organizing a
trip to San Juan, P.R., for the re-
match title fight between Ismael
Laguna, world's lightweight cham-
pion, and the former champion,
Carlos Ortiz of Puerto Rico.
The match will be Saturday,
November 6, in the Hiram Bithorn
Stadium in San Juan.
Two chartered APA airplanes will
leave on Friday, November 5 from
Tocumen Airport and will return on
Monday, November 8.
The price of the tour is $135. This
includes round trip ticket, room for
3 days and transportation from and
to the airport in San Juan.

Boating Course

Gets Underway
Sixty eight persons have registered
for the free public course in small
boat piloting and seamanship at the
Panama Canal Training Center,
Registration still will be accepted
Monday evening, September 20,
according to John Stevens, course
chairman for the U.S. Power Squad-
ron, the sponsoring organization.
Any adult may attend.

minals Division. In 1944 he trans-
ferred to the Marine Division as
dock foreman in the office of the
Harbormaster, Balboa. In 1964 he
was promoted to Assistant Harbor-
master, Balboa, and during that year
he received an incentive award for
outstanding work performance.
Over the years, Mr. and Mrs.
Driscoll have become well known
on the Isthmus. They were married
in the Balboa Baptist Church in
1942. Until a few years ago, Mrs.
Driscoll also was a Canal employee,
first as a teacher and later as
assistant to the Personnel Director.
Herbert Driscoll, whose major
interests are people and ships, has
had an opportunity on the water-
front to meet people from most of
the nations of the world. On one
occasion he telephoned Mrs. Driscoll
to tell her he was bringing home a
Scottish lassie, Dorothy Stables, who
was stranded in Balboa while wait-
ing for her ship that had been
delayed because of a shipping strike.
Dorothy later wrote the Driscolls
that she was being married in Aber-
deen, Scotland, and invited them to
her wedding. The Driscolls accepted
the invitation and traveled to
Europe. This, he says, has a moral:
"It is mighty expensive to go around
picking up strange blondes."
After their arrival in New Orleans,
the Driscolls plan to spend some
time traveling in the United States
and then will have Chapel Hill,
N.C., as their address.

Nov. 19 Deadline

For Applications

For NROTC Exam
The 20th annual national compe-
titive examination for the Regular
Naval Reserve Officers Training
Corps will be given December 11.
Eligible high school seniors and
graduates should submit their appli-
cations before November 19.
Designed to supplement the offi-
cer output of the Naval Academy,
the NROTC program makes it pos-
sible for a young man to earn a
regular commission while studying
at the civilian college of his choice
from among the 52 colleges with a
regular NROTC Unit. All tuition,
fees, and books are furnished by the
Navy, and the student receives a
subsistence allowance of $50 per
month for not more than 4 years.
High school seniors and grad-
uates who will have reached the
17th but not the 21st anniversary of
birth on June 30, 1966, may apply
for the NROTC aptitude test.
Applications forms are available
at local high schools and the 15th

partment of the Navy, Washington,

SDAC Gridders

Shaping Up as

Strong Threat
For the first time since his team
was formed several years ago, it
appears that Schools Division Ath-
letic Club coach Sid Kennon has
something to look forward to.
The 1965 interscholastic football
season opens next Friday, Septem-
ber 24, with the annual Jamboree at
Coco Solo. Festivities begin at
6 p.m., with the first quarter of
action slated to start at 6:30 p.m.
Three of the teams had no definite
starting lineup by press time. Bal-
boa's Red-White game Thursday
night should have answered a few
questions for head coach Ross Ander-
son. College mentor Morris Finkel-
stein and Cristobal High coach Doug
Litton have a little more looking
to do.
SDAC's Sid Kennon, however, has
a good idea who he'll send onto the
field for the Jamboree. It could be
one of the best Canal Zone football
teams ever. With center and right
end still questionable, the rest of the
squad shapes up like this: left end,
Reggie Prince, CZC; left tackle, Paul
Brooks, CZC; left guard, Darryl
Morse, BHS; right guard, Ed Wilder,
CZC; right tackle, Bob Barnes,
CZC; quarterback, Warren Ashton,
CZC; halfbacks, Russ Stromberg
and Sal Gerardi, CZC; fullback,
Gordon Thompson, CZC.
Brooks and Wilder have been out-
standing linemen in Canal Zone
football for several years and should
help provide a good forward wall.
Morse, the most promising high
school boy on the squad, has been
learning fast and should be a great
help. The flexible backfield is loaded
with speed and power-and reserve

Patricia Chandler

Science Student

Did Real Research
Patricia Chandler, Balboa High
School senior, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Robert Chandler of Panama,
was among high school students
attending the University of Texas
summer training program sponsored
by the National Science Foundation.
Participating in the 9-week study
course in biology, she was assigned
to the Department of Microbiology,
where she worked with azotabacter
bacteria and did research on one
particular strain of the bacteria.
The 9-week program was divided
into a 6-week session of lectures and
research and 3 weeks was devoted
entirely to research participation.
Student research participation was
conducted under supervision of a
scientist or a graduate student.
Daily guest lectures were given by
different scientists actively engaged
in research.
A highlight of the program was a
trip to the School of Aerospace
Medicine in San Antonio. The pro-
gram included a film of the school's
program and a lecture by a medical
member of the Gemini 4's tracking


Waldaba Stewart, a veteran with 39 years of Canal service, gets a "well
done" and "happy retirement" letter from Edward A. Doolan, Personnel
Director, during a farewell retirement party held in his honor by fellow
employees in the Personnel Bureau. At left is Gordon M. Frick, Deputy
Personnel Director (Operations). Stewart taught in the Canal Zone schools
from 1929 to 1955 and was Assistant Principal at Paraiso Junior Senior
High School for 3 years. He was employed as a supply clerk in Personnel
for the past 10 years. After his retirement he will live in Paraiso, where
he is pastor of the United Gospel Church.

To GIVE First Aid . .



Meaning well and good intentions do not
replace knowing what to do and what not
to do in helping an injured person.

If you know what to do . .
1. Keep victim lying down-treat for shock.
2. Give immediate attention-
/ To controlling any severe bleeding.
I Give artificial respiration if breathing stops.
/ Dilute, wash out or neutralize poisons taken by mouth.
/ Wash corrosive chemicals off with water.
3. Send for help-give needed first aid.
4. Be calm-don't be pressured into hurried action.

If you do not know what to do . .
* Usually best to leave injured victim alone-send for trained
* Prevent others (who are untrained) from trying to move
or handle victim.

You Must

KNOW First Aid!

Nazario G6ndola es marinero de la
lancha Las Cruces del Canal de Pa-
namA. Desde los lejanos dias de su
infancia en su pueblo natal, la hist6-
rica poblaci6n de Nombre de Dios,
ha sido un enamorado del mar.
Siempre ha trabajado en algo rela-
cionado con la navegaci6n. Su pri-
mer trabajo con el Canal de PanamA,
lo obtuvo en los muelles de Crist6-
bal, allA por 1940. Al present, si-
guiendo su tradici6n de marino, eso
es lo que es: marinero en la lancha
de paseo del Canal de PanamA. Hace
16 afios que se cas6 con la Sra. Juana
M. de G6ndola y nos dice sonriendo
que fue hasta el afio pasado cuando
Dios vino a bendecir su hogar, con
el advenimiento de una preciosa chi-
quilla, a la cual bautizaron con el
nombre de Esmeralda. "Esmeraldita
es toda mi vida" dice, "lo mis grande
que tengo en el mundo. Ya dice
papA. Mi pasatiempo favorite es cui-
dar y pasear a la nifia". Le pregun-
tamos sobre sus impresiones respect
al trabajo que desempefia a bordo
de la lancha. Nos dice enseguida:
"Lo que mAs me gusta de mi trabajo,
es la deferencia conque nos trata el
Cobernador Fleming, cuando viene
a bordo de la lancha".

familiar proviene de la bella Isla de

hizo en la Escuela Manuel Jos6 Hur-

del sector del Granillo. Vive en la
Calle'17 Oeste y tiene 7 hijos, entire
ellos 2 mellizos, la una hembra y
var6n el otro. "Si no fuera porque
nacieron como a las 10 de la mafia-
na, se podria decir que la una naci6

muy reido, "pues la nifiita es muy
blanca y el muchachito, bastante tri-

sv dicen sus compafieros, es hombre
polifacetico. Barbero de profesi6n,
tuvo su barberia propia, pero la p'er-
di6 en el incendio del Granillo en
octubre de 1964. AdemAs es expert
SI en la elaboraci6n de tabacos, en lo
que se ocupa con su hermano en el
tiempo que le queda libre. Dice que
cuando estA en su casa, no tiene
tiempo para nada mAs que para aten-
der a los chiquillos, que siempre se
la pasan encima de 61, especialmente
la mis chiquita. Para terminar, nos
dice que se siente orgulloso de per-
tenecer al Canal de PanamA, pues es
parte integrante de una obra que es
admirada en todo el mundo.

Buena Punteria

En un partido de beisbol en el
estadio de una universidad, un juga-
dor en su turn al bate golpe6 la pe-
lota sacdndola del campo de juego.
La punteria fue tan buena que la
pelota cay6 sobre la caja del interrup-
tor de una alarma de incendio e hizo
que cinco unidades del cuerpo de
bombers acudieran para tender
esta falsa alarm.

Venado Vengativo

Una presa de caza se veng6 de un
cazador mientras 6ste y un amigo
transportaban el venado, que habia
caido en sus manos, para sacarlo del
monte. Uno de los cuernos del animal
se introdujo en el disparador de una
pistola que portaba el cazador, dis-
par6 el arma y le hiri6 en una pierna.

Empleo de Destornilladores

El destornillador coming y corriente es una herramienta que se
emplea ampliamente y que se encuentra casi en cualquier parte,
desde el taller hasta la casa y con la misma amplitud con que es
usado tambien se abusa de 6l. No es extrafio ver emplear un destor-
nillador a manera de cincel, de palanca o de raspador. El usarlo en
forma impropia lo hace inadecuado para el trabajo para el que haya
sido disefiado. Un mango roto, una hoja doblada, una punta embotada
o torcida puede causar un accident grave.
Recomendaciones para el uso
* La punta de un destornillador debe ajustarse al tornillo que se
pretend atornillar.
La pieza sobre la cual se va a colocar el tornillo no debe ser
sostenida con la mano.
Los destornilladores para uso en trabajos de electricidad, deben
tener la hoja y el mango aislados.
Nota: Los hombres que trabajen en circuitos eldctricos vivos deben
usar elements de protecci6n para los ojos.
Algunas normas
Nunca utilice destornilladores con mangos quebrados o astillados.
Use el destornillador oue se ajuste a la cabeza del tornillo.
Repare la punta de la hoja si se ha desgastado, doblado o roto.
Use una lesna, taladro o clavo para iniciar cada tornillo.
Coloque el trabajo sobre una superficie plana. No lo soporte en
la mano.
Nunca utilice un destornillador como palanca, como cincel o
como raspador.
Debe recordarse siempre que al usar un destornillador para hacer
un trabajo diferente a aquel para el cual frue disefiado, se dafia la
forma de la hoja y se vuelve inservible.
