LA Retirees'


The 241 November-December
Panama Canal organization non-U.S.
citizen retirees leaving Canal serv-
ice in mid-December will receive
approximately $450,000 a year in
annuities-an average of about
$1,872 each.
Practically without exception,
those not already residing in the
Republic of Panama will take up
residence there.
The average annuity figure is a
significant increase over past years.
The average annuity has risen from
$1,028 in 1964 to $1,182 in 1965
(fiscal years), reflecting substantial
wage increases granted by the Pan-
ama Canal during the period 1962-65
with a consequent impact on the
Republic's economy via increased
Canal employee and retiree buying
This month's retirements also open
employment opportunities for many
additional non-U.S. job applicants.

"Drought" at End;

Lakes Now Brimful
After months of abnormally dry
weather and anxious moments on the
part of the Panama Canal weather-
men, both Gatun and Madden Lakes
were pronounced full to the brim
this week. In fact the water situation
in the Panama Canal is so good that
the members of the Canal's Hydro-
graphic Branch have started what is
known as the flood patrol, or early
warning system.
Back in the bush as far as 35 miles
from the Canal channel employees
of the Hydrographic Branch are on
24-hour duty and in constant contact
with the offices at Balboa Heights
and Madden Dam.
Their duty is to give regular
reports of rainfall and flash floods
to the men who control the gates and
valves at Madden and Gatun. An
early warning will help the weather-
men to know just when is the best
time to spill water safely and when
to conserve.

The Personnel and Civil Affairs
Bureaus led the way in this year's
Combined Federal Campaign drive,
according to a report issued by the
Governor's Council for Voluntary
Giving. Personnel Bureau employees
raised some 167.8 percent of their
$2,100 goal while those in the Civil
Affairs Bureau raised 115.6 percent
of their $16,500 goal.
Other bureaus exceeding their
goals were the Staff Units (100.6 per-

Mail Call: For Christmas!

If you had planned to send Christ-
mas parcels to friends or relatives in
Europe or other far off places by
surface mail you are more than a
month late. Packages and letters
destined for these places via surface
mail should have been in the mail
by November 5.
However, parcels destined for
Europe and Asia, including APO
addresses, can still reach your friends
and relatives on time by air mail if
you get them to a Canal Zone post
office by December 10.
Surface mail destined for any-
where in the United States and
Canada should be in the mails by
December 4.
Air mail can be sent to the United
States as late as December 15, but
Canal Zone postal authorities recom-
mend getting the parcels mailed

the Canal Zone and the United
States are overburdened with moun-
tains of Christmas mail during the
last 10 days before the holidays.

Panama Canal Locks Division
overhaul crews climbed down into
the 85-foot long cofferdam installed
at gate 113 center wall recess at
Miraflores Locks last week and began
routine repair work on this normally
submerged miter gate part.
The cofferdam, which provides a
protective shell around the lock gate
recess, protrudes 8 feet into the locks
chamber and is protected by special
fenders which permit the passage of
ships of 70-foot beam or less.
Although Miraflores east lane was
closed to traffic for 36 hours to per-
mit installation of the cofferdam,
this lane is in full operation to most
ships while miter gate overhaul is
in progress.
Work being done inside the coffer-
dam includes removal of the bearing
plates with explosives and removal of
the pintle (or hinge) and pintle cast-
ings. They are being replaced with
new bearing plates, pintles and cast-
ings of a new design which will
allow for more movement of the 700-
ton miter gate and greater distribu-
tion of the load.
When the present job is completed
about December 8, the crane Her-
cules will remove the cofferdam from
the gate recess and then re-install
the miter gate, which has been re-
paired and overhauled at Balboa Dry
Dock. The east lane will be out of
service approximately 24 hours while
this operation takes place.

Miraflores is the only set of locks
in which the necessary modifications
have been made to permit use of the
cofferdams, which are part of the
experimental locks overhaul pro-
cedure using the 24-hour locks lane
outage concept.
The modifications installed in 1963
consist of quoin cofferdam seats
against which the rubber seals of the
movable cofferdams are designed to
fit snugly.

Christmas Coming

And So Are Trees
Christmas trees will be available
beginning Sunday, December 12, at
1 p.m. at Building 6, Industrial Area,
on the Pacific side, and at Building
1143, Coco Solo, for Atlantic side
customers. Sales during regular store
hours will continue in these areas
until trees are sold.
Balsam fir Christmas trees will be
graded at the point of sale into three
classes. Trees that are better than
average in appearance will be sold
at $4, trees of average appearance
at $3, and trees below average at
$1.75. Large organizational trees are
priced at $12.75 and Scotch pine
trees at $5.
Trees will be available at the
Gatun Retail Store, Gamboa Retail
Store, Paraiso Retail Store, and Rain-

cent) and the Office of the Comp-
troller (100.2 percent).
Although the Panama Canal
Company-Canal Zone Government
fell $2,900 short of its $114,900 goal,
Canal organization employees raised
some $112,040.37, or 97.5 percent
of their goal. This was nearly 69
percent of all funds collected for all
Federal agencies.
Of those Canal organization units
which missed their goals, the Marine
and Engineering and Construction
Bureaus came closest without ac-
tually going over the top. Marine
Bureau employees raised 98.8 per-
cent of their substantial $24,100
goal-the largest goal in the Pan-
Canal organization-while employees
of the Engineering and Construction
Bureau collected 97.7 percent of
their $19,300 goal.
Campaign officials expressed the

view that recent treaty announce-
ments had undoubtedly hampered
the charity drive in some of the Canal
organization's units. The Supply and
Community Service Bureau collected
0.15 percent of its payroll, the largest
of any bureau not making its goal
and the largest percent of payroll
raised by any major bureau.
The Governor's Council issued a
formal note of thanks to all em-
ployees for the generous efforts they
have made in this year's campaign.
Lt. Gov. Harold R. Parfitt stated,
"Although the Canal agencies fell
short of their goal by a very small
amount in this year's Combined
Federal Campaign, Canal employees
can be proud to have raised more
than all the other Canal Zone area
Federal agencies combined and to
have played such a major part in
this worthy drive."

cences by Helen Hayes, one of
America's greatest actresses. Along
with discussions of what has given
her "the gift of joy" in her marriage,
her children, her friends and in her
favorite roles, she includes selections
from stories, poems, and plays which
have pleased her. This is a friendly
and warm-hearted book by one of
America's great ladies.
The story of Laughing Whitefish,
by Robert Traver, is based on the
first discovery of iron ore in Michigan
in the 1840's. Traver returns to the
courtroom and to the theme of justice
that made his earlier Anatomy of a
Murder a best seller. Traver is
actually John D. Voelker, who was
formerly a Supreme Court Justice in
Michigan. He resigned to devote
full time to writing after the success
of Anatomy of a Murder.
In Portrait of the Assassin, Con-
gressman Gerald R. Ford and John
R. Stiles attempt to piece together
into a readable narrative the activi-
ties of Lee Harvey Oswald from 1959
to his death on November 23, 1965.
Congressman Ford was a member of
the 7-member board appointed by
President Johnson to investigate the
assassination of President Kennedy
and thus had continuing contact with
the voluminous testimony garnered
by the commission. Since few per-
sons have either the time or the
inclination to read the full report of
the commission, this book serves the
useful purpose of providing a brief
account which includes the salient
points of the findings and yet is not
so time-consuming as the report.
Cross-Fire, by Cliff Farrell, is a
Double D Brand western-a story of
the relentless pursuit of the leader of
an action in the Battle of Shiloh by
the only other survivor. The trail
leads this man throughout the West
and involves Indian warfare, the
opening of vast tracts of land, and
the building of the new Grand
Pacific Railroad.

International Law

Study Written by

Richard Lombard
Richard S. Lombard, son of
Eugene Lombard, former Canal Zone.
Executive Secretary, has written a
book entitled American-Venezuelan
Private International Law, one of the
Bilateral Studies in Private Interna-
tional Law published for the Parker
School of Foreign and Comparative
Law at Columbia University.
Richard Lombard graduated from
Balboa High School in 1944, and
from Harvard College and Harvard
Law School, and was admitted to
practice in New York State and
before the U.S. Supreme Court. He
spent 10 years in Venezuela as asso-
ciate counsel, and later as head of
the legal department of Creole
Petroleum Corp., the producing sub-
sidiary of Standard Oil of New
Jersey. He recently joined the legal
department of Standard Oil of New
Jersey in New York City.
His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Eugene
Lombard lived in the Canal Zone
for many years. The Lombards are
now living in El Salvador, where
Mr. Lombard directs the work of
Catholic Relief Services in conjunc-
tion with the U.S. Government Food
For Peace Program.
Richard Lombard's book is a
brilliant, scholarly work with volumi-
nous notes, includes as an appendix
a table of cases, and lists other
bilateral studies of a series of 14 in
private international law.
American-Venezuelan Private In-
ternational Law is the first study of
its kind ever made of the highly
complex Venezuelan situation. It is
intended not only for the legal pro-
Fession throughout the world, but
also as an invaluable reference for
foreign firms established in different
parts of the world.
A copy of Lombard's book has
been presented to the Canal Zone

grows every year. Yet, ironically,
fewer people in the United States are
willing to donate. Apathy is espe-
cially noticeable in the big cities of
the East, where the traditional
American spirit of good neighbor-
liness is diminishing. Nearly two-
thirds of the blood needed in New
York City used to be donated. Today,
nearly two-thirds of the blood
needed must be bought.
What is wrong with paying for
blood? A great deal! Blood which is
bought is less reliable and much
less safe. People who sell their blood
have a cash incentive for denying or
misrepresenting their illnesses and
medical histories. If the seller of
blood has had virus hepatitis or
malaria, there is no reliable labora-
tory test to show it. The deception

of the person selling blood can cost
a patient his life.
Another danger'is that the asking
price could go up very much higher.
If a hospital in a remote area were
forced to depend on a group of paid
donors, the price of blood could rise
beyond reach.
So from an economic and medical
point of view, the voluntary donor
method is much safer. The volunteer
has no motive to practice deception
and gives an accurate, truthful
medical history.
His rejection for medical reasons
carries no financial loss, therefore he
can be scrupulously honest in his
There is a more subtle value to
voluntary giving. When you donate
a pint of blood, you are making a
very personal and valiant gesture.
You are, in a sense, giving a part of
yourself. The privilege of saving a
life is limited to a fortunate few.
A donation of blood will give you
that privilege. If this element of
personal giving is lost, not only will
medical care suffer, but something
of value will disappear from our
If every eligible person gave one
pint of blood once a year, the supply
would be 10 times the demand. Put
another way, if every eligible person
agreed to give when called upon,
each would be called only once in
10 years.
Who is the blood donor? It's you-
adult inhabitants of the Canal Zone.
You are the people on whom the
success of the donor program hinges.
You are the people that are protected
by a full blood bank, 24 hours a
day, 365 days a year.
Many of you are not aware of this
constant protection of your lives.

SS France Booked

For 3 Cristobal

Visits Next Year
Three visits to Cristobal will be
made in 1966 by the French Line's
luxurious SS France, the longest ship
in the world and one of the most
The France is scheduled to come
to the Atlantic side on January 21,
February 6, and February 26 as part
of West Indies cruises scheduled out
of New York. If she carries her usual
compliment of tourists, she will aver-
age more than 1,000 cruise pas-
sengers on each visit. Her officer and
crew force come to another 1,000.
The France made her first visit to
the Canal in 1963, when she
attracted hundreds of sightseers and
visitors who lined the Cristobal
waterfront to watch the big ship
enter the harbor and move to pier 9.
The largest passenger liner ever
handled by the Canal, the France
was brought in the last time by three
Panama Canal pilots. The pilots had
no worries about taking her through
the Panama Canal, however, since
the France is not only too wide
(110 feet) for the locks but also too
long-1,035 feet.

with the Gorgas Blood Bank. It will

Sunday Final Night

For "The Crucible"
"The Crucible" by Arthur Miller
will be presented by the Canal Zone
College Drama Department at the
Canal Zone College Auditorium
Saturday and Sunday nights, at 7:30.
David Lommen is director of the
production that has been playing to
appreciative audiences since its
opening night on December 1.

Capt. Robert D. Valentine, Panama Canal pilot, left, was commended for
an "outstanding display of skill in seamanship and piloting" that "con-
tributes greatly to the enviable reputation enjoyed by our pilots in handling
vessels in Canal Zone waters" in a letter of commendation presented him
by Capt. C. E. Briggs, USN, Chief of the Panama Canal Navigation Divi-
sion. Captain Valentine was pilot in charge of the southbound transit of
the Wiltrader when, at approximately 3 a.m. September 18, the vessel
had a complete loss of power on its main engine when' approximately 800
feet off the north approach wall of Pedro Miguel Locks. Without hesitation
or delay, Capt. Valentine proceeded into the chamber and locked the
vessel down. Shortly thereafter, power was restored to the main engine
and transit continued without further incident.

Clockwise, Mrs. Nannette Rickert, David Lommen, John Marshall, and
Loring White, members of the cast of "Don Jan In Hell," to be given at
the Ancon Playhouse December 10 and 11.

Ancon Theatre Guild Plans

"Special" for Dec. 9, 10

The Ancon Theatre Guild will
offer a special event Friday and
Saturday, December 10 and 11 at
the Ancon Playhouse. In recognition
of the Little Theatre's 15th anniver-
sary, "Membership and Loyalty
Nights" will be held and the featured
event of these "open house" evenings
will be a performance of George
Bernard Shaw's Don Juan in Hell.
Seen in the play will be David
Lommen, John Marshall, Loring
White, and Mrs. Nannette Rickert.
Lommen, new to the Isthmus, will
be making his Theatre Guild debut.
He is drama instructor at Canal Zone
College. Marshall, also of C.Z. Col-
lege, also is making his debut. White,
another college faculty member, and
Mrs. Rickert, wife of Maj. John
Rickert, USAF, of Quarry Heights,
are both familiar to Theatre Guild
audiences from previous productions.

Cancer Authority

Scheduled for

Visit to Isthmus
Dr. Saul B. Gusberg, Obstetrician
and Gynecologist-in-Chief at Mount
Sinai Hospital, New York City,
renowned authority on the treatment
of cervix cancer, will arrive on the
Isthmus on December 13. Dr. Gus-
berg's visit is sponsored by the Canal
Zone Cancer Committee, a member
of the United Fund.
His schedule calls for clinics at
Gorgas Hospital during the day
December 14, and that evening he
will address the Isthmian Medical
Society on "The Doctor's Dilemma
in the Choice of Treatment of Cervix
Cancer." On Wednesday, Decem-
ber 15, Dr. Gusberg will speak to
the Gorgas Hospital Staff, visit other
Isthmian medical facilities, and
appear on an SCN television panel
at 7:30 p.m.'
After graduating from Harvard
Medical School in 1937, Dr. Gusberg
did cancer research at Collis P.
Huntington Memorial Hospital in
Boston. Later he interned at Bellvue
Hospital in New York, and then was
resident at the Sloane Hospital for
Women of the Columbia-Presby-
terian Medical Center. Although now
at Mount Sinai Hospital, Dr. Gusberg
is teaching as Clinical Professor at
the College of Physicians and Sur-
geons in Columbia University.
Dr. Gusberg has traveled widely
and recently returned from the
Middle East where he lectured at
the Universities of Athens, Istanbul,
and Jerusalem on gynecologic cancer.

Don Juan in Hell is a witty and
sparkling comedy of how the most
famous Casanova of legend saves his
soul and confounds the Devil.
The performances are free of
charge and no reservations are neces-
sary. Memberships will be available
to prospective members, and old and
former members may renew or
rejoin. The public is cordially invited
to enjoy the performance.
A membership includes a season
ticket which offers a considerable
saving on the regular ticket price
for the Guild's five annual produc-
tions, and the Don Juan performance
makes an added Christmas "bonus."
Any member may participate in
any production and new talent is
Curtain time for "Membership and
Loyalty Nights" is 8 p.m.

To Fly Again

On Saturday
The U.S. Air Force "Thunder-
birds," who amazed a large audience
at Albrook AFB with their aerial
precision flying yesterday, will per-
form again tomorrow morning,
December 4, at the Howard AFB
flight line. The aerial show will
begin at 10 a.m.
The USAFSO Band will open the
festivities with a concert beginning
at 9 a.m. At 9:25 a.m. Air Force
dignitaries headed by Col. Harold
A. Pruitt, commander, 5700th Air
Base Wing, will conduct the pre-
show inspection of the precision jet
flying team.
At exactly 9:40 a.m. the world
famous Thunderbirds will climb into
the cockpits of their supersonic
F-100 Super Sabres to begin an
astounding aerial demonstration.


Yule Lighting

Given Approval
During the coming Christmas holi-
day season, moderate decorative out-
door lighting will be permitted in all
civilian and military residential areas
in the Canal Zone. However, res-
idents are urged to use no more, and
preferably less, decorative lighting
than they did last year, in order to
minimize the added load.
This temporary relaxation of the
electric power conservation program
is possible only because recent
heavy rains have improved the
Canal's water supply, permitting re-
sumption of normal hydroelectric
generation at Gatun for a few weeks.
Residents of the Canal Zone are
reminded, however, that the elec-
trical load on the power system i's
approaching the maximum available
generating capacity, and that their
assistance in conserving electrical
power is still required. With the
onset of the dry season, about the
first of January, the program of
electric power conservation which
has been in force will have to be
The present power shortage will
not be relieved until about March
when a steam generating plant, now
under construction at Miraflores, will
be ready for service.

If the same number of people who
were accidentally killed and injured
last year were to form a parade, it
would take them over 85 days to pass
the reviewing stand, marching at the
rate of 5,000 an hour!

Janna Loizeaux, center, broke her own record to win first place in the girls'
backstroke for those 8 years of age and under at the annual Thanksgiving
swim meet at the Balboa swimming pool. Her new record is 21.3. Her old
record: 21.6. At left is Holly Wilson, second place winner in this event and

Se Acabo el Problema del

Agua en Gatun y Madden

Despu6s de varies meses de esta-
ci6n seca fuera de lo normal y mo-
mentos de ansiedad por parte de los
meteor61ogos del Canal de PanamA,
tanto los Lagos Gat6n como Madden
quedaron Ilenos hasta el borde esta
semana. La situaci6n del agua en el
Canal de PanamA es tan buena que
los miembros del Ramo HidrogrAfico
del Canal han iniciado lo que se
conoce como la patrulla fluvial, o el
sistema de temprana advertencia.
Los empleados del Ramo Hidro-
grifico estAn traba:ando 24 horas al
dia en el monte a unas 35 millas de
la ruta del Canal y en constant con-
tacto con las oficinas en Balboa

Heights y la Represa Madden. Su
trabajo consiste en proporcionar in-
formes regulars de precipitaci6n
lluviosa e inundaciones repentinas a
los hombres que controlan las com-
puertas y vAlvulas en Madden y
Gat6n. Una temprana advertencia
ayudarf a los meteor6logos a saber
a tiempo cuindo es el mejor tiempo
para bajar las valvulas de tambor en
Madden y las compuertas del verte-
dero de Gat6n. Al mismo tiempo
deben estar preparados para mante-
ner ambos lagos en su mAxima eleva-
ci6n en preparaci6n para los meses
de la estaci6n seca en enero, febrero
y marzo.

ciento y la Contraloria, que alcanz6
el 100.2 por ciento.
A pesar de que la Compafiia del
Canal de PanamA y el Gobierno de
la Zona del Canal, no alcanzaron su
marca de $114.900 por unos $2.900,
los empleados de la organiza-
ci6n del Canal contribuyeron con
$112.040.37, o sea, un 97.5 por ciento
del total calculado. Esta cantidad
constitute aproximadamente, un
68.7 por ciento del total colectado
por todas las agencies Federales
durante la campafia.
Las unidades de la organizaci6n
del Canal que no llegaron a pasar la
marca calculada pero que llegaron
mas cerca de ella, fueron las Direc-
ciones de Marina y de Ingenieria y
Construcci6n. Los empleados de la
Direcci6n de Marina lograron un

Eduardo Bourne, aseador y factotum
del Edificio de la Corte, en Anco6n,
Zona del Canal. Naci6 en el viejo
Hospital Anc6n, hoy Hospital Gor- a
gas, el 6 de noviembre de 1927. Hizo
su escuela primaria en la Escuela
Repiblica de Haiti, en Rio Abajo y
siempre ha vivido en la ciudad de
Panama. Reside en su casita propia
en la Barriada de Santa Rosa de San
Miguelito, en la ciudad de Panama.
Tiene a su cargo la limpieza y el
arreglo de los dos pisos superiores del
edificio de la Corte y ademAs ha to-
mado bajo su cuidado una pequenia
cafeteria que se ha instalado en el
primer alto para conveniencia de los ,
empleados. En sus 38 afios de vida, '
Eduardo Bourne ha hecho muchas. r E
cosas. Ha trabajado con el Ejercito
de Estados Unidos, con la organiza-
ci6n del Canal de PanamA tiene unos
15 afios de servicio y entire 1955 y
1960 fue miembro de la Guardia Na-
cional de PanamA. Dice que el tra-
bajo con la Guardia fue muy inte-
resante pues le brind6 la oportuni-
dad de conocer lugares que nada mais
que habia visto en el mapa, como el
Rio Sixaola, el Changuinola y el
Cricamola; conoci6 lugares como
Yorkin, las Islas de Bastimentos y
otros interesantes lugares en Bocas
del Toro. En Guabito, en la frontera
con Costa Rica, jug6 beisbol con los
conocidos jugadores Justo Martinez
y Leonardo Martinez Ferguson. Dice
que con el Canal de PanamA ha
aprendido much, hasta a manipular
los cables en las Esclusas del Canal
de Panama y que se encuentra muy
content con su trabajo en la organi-
zaci6n, pero que lo que 61 espera
durante todo el afio, son las vacacio-
nes, pues durante 3 semanas se las
pasa en un lugar situado en las altas
montafias de la Provincia de Vera-
guas, llamado Potrero Viejo.

b- ThA. -I-
Su nombre es David Herbert Gayle, es aseador y encargado del arreglo de
la plant baja del Edificio de la Corte en Anc6n. Pero los bombers y poli-
cias de la Zona del Canal lo llaman Smokey, mientras que los viejos emplea-
dos, amigos suyos, lo llaman "PapA". No sabe decir c6mo se iniciaron esos
sobrenombres carifiosos, pero el caso es que muchas de esas personas no
lo conocen de otra manera. Naci6 hace 53 afios en el pueblo de Gorgona,
pero desde muy niiio vivi6 en la ciudad de PanamA. Tiene 26 afios de
prestar sus servicios a la organizaci6n del Canal. Dice que siempre ha
trabajado en la Zona del Canal. Antes de trabajar con el Canal de PanamA,
limpiaba y lustraba autom6viles en la Estaci6n del Ferrocarril en Balboa,
para el Sr. Holland, que durante muchos afios tuvo una barberia en la
estaci6n. Ahora trabaja con la Divisi6n de Mantenimiento. Dice que antes,
en el patio de la Corte de Anc6n, nada mAs que estaban las palmeras del
centro, pero que un dia el Funcionario de Indultos bajo Palabra de la Corte,
Patrick Murphy, tuvo la idea de embellecer el patio y recogiendo plants y
maceteros, con su compafiero Eduardo Bourne, lo transformaron en el hello
jardin que es hoy dia. Gayle adora sus matas y se siente orgulloso de su
jardin. Fuera de la ciudad de PanamA, lo inico que conoce es la ciudad
de Col6n. Del interior, ni siquiera Arraijin. Dice que su mayor deseo es
conocer los Estados Unidos, donde tiene un hijo, que vive con una hermana
suya en la ciudad de Nueva York. El otro gran deseo de David Herbert
Gayle es navegar alg6n dia por el Canal de PanamA y que alguien le
muestre d6nde quedaba Gorgona, el pueblo donde 1l naci6.

Evite Ser Otra Victima
El rescatar a una persona que ha sufrido un choque el6ctrico
require tomar ciertas precauciones indispensables para que la vida
de la persona que se apresta a dar ayuda a la victim, no sea expuesta
tambien al peligro de sufrir un choque. Estas son medidas sencillas
y elementales que deben conocerse con claridad y recordarse en todo
moment para que, llegado el caso, se puedan poner en prActica en
forma automfitica y no vayan a ser olvidadas a causa del nerviosismo
y de la tension emotional que se present al estar frente a una victim
de choque el6ctrico.
Para entender la raz6n por la cual es necesario poner en prActica
estas reglas, es necesario tener conocimiento de la forma como actfia
la corriente el6ctrica y de c6mo se sucede el choque.
La forma como se comporta la corriente el(ctrica en un circuit
es comparable a la forma como fluye el agua por las tuberias. La
corriente electrica avanza por un conductor en toda su extension,
siempre que no haya interrupciones, como lo hace el agua en una
tuberia que tenga presi6n. La presi6n de la corriente en el conductor,
que se denomina voltaje, hace que ella est6 lista para fluir hacia
tierra por el camino o conductor que le ofrezca ]a menor resistencia.
Cuando una persona entra en contact con un conductor o cable
el6ctrico que estA electrizado, ]a corriente pasa por el cuerpo en su
camino hacia tierra, si la persona no esti separada de la tierra por
algfin material aislante. A su paso por el cuerpo, ]a corriente causa
la parilisis de los muisculos que regulan la respiraci6n y el movi-
miento del coraz6n. Por este motivo es necesario evitar el contact
director con la victim de un choque el6ctrico mientras esta se
encuentre en contact con el conductor electrizado o "vivo".

El Hierro es

Necesario en

El Organismo
Algo que deberia preocuparnos es
el hierro, ya que la deficiencia de
hierro en las personas estA resultando
much mAs com6n de lo que general-
mente se cree. El hierro mantiene la
sangre en buenas condiciones.
Es important que los infants, los
nifios en crecimiento y tambien las
mujeres en gestaci6n, obtengan sufi-
ciente hierro. Los varones adults
rara vez desarrollan deficiencia de
La care, los vegetables verdes, fri-
joles secos, las nueces y los cereales
enriquecidos, son las mejores fuen-
tes ferruginosas. La mayoria de las
cares son sumamente ricas. Buenas
fuentes existen en los huevos, ostras,
sardinas y camarones. Tambi6n su-
ministran buena cantidad de hierro
los frijoles secos, las lentejas, las
nueces, las ciruelas, los dAtiles y las
pasas, que proporcionan unos 5 mili-
gramos por taza.
El pan. de tri'go es muy buena
fuente de hierro. Una rebanada pro-
porcionarA medio miligramo de
hierro. En dietas no se puede gene-
ralizar, pero nos atravemos a decir
que menus diarios, que incluyan una
gran variedad de alimentos, escogi-
dos dentro de los cuatro grandes
grupos de products alimenticios,
proveerin de 12 a 18 miligramos de
hierro diarios.
Los adults y nifios mayores debe-
rian recibir 15 miligramos de hierro
al dia para estar bien alimentados.

describe las islas como un paraiso
primitive, donde el dinero crece en
los Arboles y las mujeres valen su
peso en oro. "Sin embargo, nadie
podrA pensar ingenuamente, que
puede ir a las islas a pasar una vida
de diversiones entire las palmeras y
rodeado de damiselas cargadas de
adornos de oro, ya que los indios de
San Bias, desde los tiempos de los
conquistadores, han convertido sus
islas en tabiu para los extrafios. Al
present, se permit solamente un
vistazo tras la cortina de cocos, pero
nadie puede tener una propiedad ni
pasar la noche en las islas", dice la
Describe las excursions a San
Blas, desde la ciudad de PanamA y
dice que unas pocas horas en ese
Ed6n Indio, causan gran melancolia,
cuando el viajero tiene que regresar
a su mundo civilizado de tensions,
television, uilceras e impuestos.
A pesar de que los indios usan cocos
en vez de dinero, ninguno se disgust
al aceptar dinero a cambio de curio-
sidades. Al describir la mola, dice
que ninguna obra de Balenciaga
pcdria ser mAs original.
De las matronas de San Blas, dice
que ellas son las duefias de todo y
no s6lo detentan la propiedad, sino
que llevan consigo en todo tiempo
su cuenta de banco, en forma de
barras de oro y pulseras, aretes y
collares de monedas de oro. En San
Blas, decir que una mujer vale su
peso en oro, no es exageracion.
"Las Islas de San Blas, panacea
panamefia para los que estin cansa-
dos del ajetreo diario, estAn cerca de
la costa istmefia, pero para la mayor
parte de la gente, se encuentran casi
tan lejos, como los Astronautas en

Tres Visitas al

Canal en 1966
El France, de la Linea Francesa,
el barco mAs largo del mundo y uno
. de los mis famosos, hara tres visits
en 1966, al puerto de Crist6bal.
El France llegara a nuestro puerto
del Atlantico el 21 de enero, el 6 y

les que se iniciarAn en Nueva York.
En viajes de crucero, cuando lleva
el pasaje complete, la nave acomoda
1.000 turistas que visitarAn el Istmo
cada vez que Ilegue a nuestras cos-
tas. AdemAs cuenta con 1.000 perso-
nas mis, entire oficiales y miembros
de la tripulaci6n.
El France visit el Istmo por pri-
mera vez en 1963, ocasi6n en que
centenares de curiosos y visitantes
se aglomeraron en la orilla de la
Bahia Lim6n, para observer la enor-
me nave cuando entraba a la bahia
y acoderaba al Muelle 9 de Crist6bal.
El barco de pasajeros mAs grande
jamAs manejado por el Canal de
PanamA, fue traido a puerto la lltima
vez por tres prActicos del Canal.
Los prActicos, sin embargo, no tu-
vieron que preocuparse por Ilevarlo
a traves del Canal, ya que el France

sino tambi6n demasiado largo, 1.035
pies, para las Esclusas del Canal de
