coming down before June 30 to lec-
ture, show films and exhibits, and see
problem cases related to their spe-
cialty of medicine. Most of the doc-
tors who are coming are faculty
members of large medical schools
who have gained fame in their respec-
tive fields over the years.
Medical schools at these universi-
ties will be represented: George-
town, Wisconsin, Harvard, California,
Boston, Baylor, Kansas, Miami,
Stanford, Texas, Pennsylvania, and
several outstanding military hospitals.
The visits will last 3 days each and

Fire Prevention

Week Oct. 9-15
Fire Prevention Week will be
observed in the Canal Zone from
October 9 through October 15, in
accordance with a proclamation by
President Johnson.
Emphasis will be given the im-
portance of fire prevention and the
precautions which should be taken
by every citizen to keep fire hazards
at a minimum. Fire safety activities
in the Canal Zone also will be
reviewed, with an eye to strengthen-
ing them where necessary.
The Canal Zone Fire Division pro-
gram of activities includes lectures,
demonstrations, displays, fire inspec-
tions, cancellation of mail at post
offices with fire prevention slogans,
and similar activities.
A special feature of this year's Fire
Prevention Week in the Canal Zone
will be stressing "How to call for
Fire Prevention Week also will be
observed in the Canal Zone Schools.
Although the importance of fire pre-
vention is taught to small tots from
the time they can distinguish right
from wrong, the number of fatalities
each year points out the constant
need to stimulate fire prevention.
Precautions that should be taken
to prevent fires and firefighting will
be stressed again this year during the
annual observance of Fire Prevention
-Week at the Canal Zone schools.

5 3 7 Women

Will Lose

Nearly one-fourth of the Panama
Canal organization's U.S. employees
will be in the "no differential" cate-
gory as of October 11, when 537
married women U.S. employees lose
their tropical differential through
application of a July 1964 Secretary
of Army's regulation.
There were 4,165 U.S. employees
on the Panama Canal organization's
rolls as of August. Of this number,
385 U.S. married women hired in the
past 2 years have never received the
tropical differential. On October 11,
the 537 who now lose the differential
will be added to the 385. In addition,
11 minors and others not married also
lose the differential.
The U.S. women now on the Canal
payroll who qualify as head of fam-
ily and therefore are permitted to
retain the tropical differential num-
ber 276. Their differential amounts
vary from 15 percent to 25 percent.
There also are 72 single U.S. women
hired in the past 2 years who received
the 15 percent tropical differential
and are permitted to retain it.
The amount of the tropical differen-
tial for U.S.-citizen employees of the
Canal organization is a fixed amount,
figured individually for each employee
One U.S. married woman employee
in the Canal organization will lose
$3,800 through losing the tropical,
differential. A number of others lose
between $3,000 and $3,800. The
average loss to U.S. married women
employees is in the neighborhood of
$1,400. In payroll figures, the annual
total is about $750,000.

Fire Prevention Week
(Continued from p. 1)
will contact the fire station in their
area and arrange for demonstrations
and lectures to be given at their
respective schools on firefighting
equipment and prevention of fires.
Fire drills will be held during this
week at all schools.
Elementary school children will be
urged to participate in a contest. This
contest may cover any one of the
following fields: stories, posters, dra-
matizations, essays, poems, slogans,
displays, or other artwork with fire
prevention in the home as a theme.
The winner of the contest in each
room will be presented with a cer-
tificate of award from an official of
the Fire Division making him an
Honorary Fire Marshal in the Canal
Zone Fire Division.
Teachers who participate are re-
quested to make this contest a class-
room project to insure awareness on
each pupil's part that most fires can
be prevented by simple precautions
that everyone should know.
All fire stations will be open to the
public. Any fraternal organization
desiring a demonstration should con-
tact the fire station in its townsite for
an appointment.

Fires ... Tragic Waste

The importance of fire prevention
has been pointed up by Canal Zone
Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr., in calling
attention to a presidential proclama-
tion on Fire Prevention Week.
The week beginning October 9
has been designated by President
Lyndon B. Johnson, who calls upon
all citizens to "support earnestly the
fire prevention and control efforts of
their community fire departments."

Text of Proclamation
Destructive fires-many of which
could be avoided by eliminating
known fire hazards-result in the
tragic waste of life, property, and
irreplaceable natural resources.
Inevitably such fires bring sorrow
and financial difficulties to many
The toll of life and property
occasioned by fire has been sharply
reduced in those communities
where fire prevention programs
have been conducted.
Further progress is essential.
Further progress can be made if
every individual assumes the re-
sponsibility for removing the

hazards and reforming the habits
which cause fires.
DON B. JOHNSON, President of
the United States of America, do
hereby designate the week begin-
ning October 9, 1966, as Fire
Prevention Week.
I urge State and local Govern-
ments, the Chamber of Commerce
of the United States, the American
Red Cross, the National Fire Pro-
tection Association, and business,
labor, farm and youth organiza-
tions, as well as schools, civic
groups, and public information
agencies to observe Fire Preven-
tion Week, to provide useful fire
safety information to the public,
and to enlist the active participa-
tion of all citizens in year-round
fire prevention programs.
I bid all citizens to support
earnestly the fire prevention and
control efforts of their community
fire departments.
I also direct the appropriate
Federal agencies to assist in this
effort to reduce the needless waste
of life and property caused by
preventable fires.

Maphis attended Canal Zone
schools and was graduated from
Balboa High School in 1952. He was
employed as a student assistant on
the Pacific Locks until he entered the
University of Colorado. He was grad-
uated with a degree in engineering
in 1956.
Since that time he served with the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and
was employed by Kaiser Steel Corp.
of Fontana, Calif. Most recently he
was with the Martin Co. of Denver,

unidad. Su participaci6n en la campafia es de 100 por ciento a la Cuota Justa
y aparecen aqui cuando el gerente George Ateek recibe las felicitaciones de
L. A. Ferguson, Director de Abastos y Servicios Comunales.

IT A rally at the Industrial Division of
the Marine Bureau was held to boost
interest in meeting the goal of the
Combined Federal Campaign. The
Division, with lightning response,
went over the top for the third year
in a row. The goal of the Division,
$4,300, was passed the first day and
the total so far is near the $5.000
mark. The 450-member unit has been
tops the past 2 years in the percentage
by which its goal was exceeded.
The men shown here are at Mount
Hope, with the Air Force Band in
the foreground.

Another large group of employees joined the ranks of those who pledged a
Fair Share contribution to the Combined Federal Campaign in the very
beginning of the drive. The Southern Sanitation Area force, 62 strong, came
through 100 percent, adding to the mounting success of the 1967 Combined
Federal Campaign.

Gente en la Noticia

Ray I. Sealey, es aprendiz de meca
nico tornero y ya esti en su segundi

Jorge Alberto Coto, pasabarcos, empleado en la Oficina del Maestre de Rada
de Balboa, aparece list para abordar la lancha que lo Ilevari a un barco para
hacer su trabajo, que consiste en tender los cables con que las locomotoras
de remolque de las Esclusas del Canal de PanamA guian y estabilizan las
naves cuando cruzan las esclusas de la gran via interoceAnica. Coto lleva ya
26 afios de trabajo con el Canal de PanamA. Empez6 como ayudante carpin-
tero en la vieja Divisi6n de MecAnica, en 1950 fue trasladado en la misma
capacidad a la Divisi6n Industrial de Crist6bal, donde permaneci6 hasta 1957.
Ese afio fue trasladado a la Divisi6n de Navegaci6n y desde entonces ha per-
manecido alli. Naci6 en la ciudad de San Salvador, Republica de El Salvador,
donde trabaj6 como albaflil y carpintero, hasta 1940, cuando vino contratado
a trabajar con el Canal de PanamA. Tiene un gran amor por la tierra que lo
vio nacer, El Salvador, pero dice que ya se siente panameiio. "Tengo 26 afios
de vivir en esta querida tierra", dice a manera de explicaci6n, "mi esposa, con
ia que tengo 20 afios de casado, Iluminada Puga de Coto, es panamefia, nacida
en Santiago de Veraguas, tengo cuatro hijos, todos panamefios, y aqui en el
Canal de PanamA, he encontrado un trabajo que me proporciona un modo
decent de vivir y una seguridad que nunca antes habia tenido". A primera
vista se le nota que es un hombre serio, trabajador y servicial con todos sus
compafieros de trabajo. Vive en la poblaci6n de Paraiso, con su esposa y sus
hijos, Jorge A., Jr.. de 19 afios, que estudia contabilidad en el Colegio Gast6n
Faraudo P.; Ordelina, de 17 afios, que estA aprendiendo modisteria; Napole6n,
alumno de la Escuela Profesional; y Guadalupe, de 10 afios, que estA en la
Escuela Rep6blica de Venezuela, en Quinto Crado de Primaria. Es cat6lico
y su iglesia es la de Santa Teresita, en el Barrio del Marafi6n. Dice que la
idea del Sr. Arzobispo de PanamA, Monsefior Tomas A. Clavel M., de poner
las oficinas del Arzobispado en el coraz6n del Marafi6n es magnifica.
