The most famous among coworkers

Please Don't Eat the . .

Oh, All Sorts of Things

Now that Thanksgiving is over we
should pause to itemize the ways to
protect ourselves from Christmas
You may eat plum pudding and
mince pie until you get sick . .
that's up to you. But please don't eat
the mistletoe or angel hair. Granted
you aren't apt to; but baby might.
High on the danger list are icicles
and angel hair made of lead. Berries,
all brightly colored, attract children.
Toxicity to holly, mistletoe, jerusalem
cherry, juniper, bayberry and all the
greens from apple branches through
yew trees exists.
The toxicity to most of these Christ-
mas decorations exists only if eaten
and expresses itself both by digestive
upset and some injury to the nervous
system. No exception should be made,

how active you have been in decorat-
ing. Children love to spray windows,
mirrors, little brother. The snow is an
inert plastic but the propellent carries
halogenated hydrocarbon danger!
Halogenated hydrocarbons are one
of the groups of chemicals which
cause the danger of insecticides and
they enter into the danger of Christ-
mas, too. These materials damage the
liver and the nervous system.
Bubbling candle-like bulbs are safe
as long as whole, but again children
may break them or pull them from
the tree. The fluid contains low tox-
icity hydrocarbons. Dancing moth-
balls; interesting, but not a game for
children. Napthalene and paradi-
chlorobenzene: poison.

Storehouse Sales

Of Copper Items

Are Discontinued
Because of the increasing shortage
of copper, it has been necessary to
discontinue Storehouse sales of items
composed entirely or in considerable
part of this metal.
The problem of replenishing these
critical stocks needed for use of the
Canal organization has become acute.
Many items are available to the Pan-
ama Canal Company only after De-
partment of Defense priorities are
obtained. In addition, during the past
year, filling requirements of copper-
bearing materials has involved delays
of 6 to 8 months.
Therefore the general restriction of
the sale of this class of commodity
has been found necessary. However,
where it can be established that Canal
needs are not jeopardized, some
items, from time to time, may be
available for sale.


Work was in progress this week on
removal of damaged sections of the
soft nose at the south end of the
Miraflores Locks center wall, which
was damaged November 26 when
struck by a ship.
The ship was approaching north-
bound to make a lockage in the east
lane. The vessel's engines failed as it
neared the wall. An anchor was
dropped, but the bow of the ship
struck the east side of the crib fender
about 30 feet south of the end of the
locks wall.
A section of the concrete structure
and timber cribbing approximately 30
feet long and 27 feet high toppled
into the channel, partially blocking
the east lane to deep draft vessels.
It is estimated the section which fell
into the water weighs approximately
250 tons.
Prior to removal of the concrete
and timber section from the channel,
it was necessary to limit lockages
through the east lane to specific
drafts, depending on tide level.
A detailed estimate of cost of re-
pairs is still being prepared.

Scotch imported annually by the
United States. Figures released by
the Scotch Whisky Association say
that about 20,472,000 gallons of Scot-
land's national drink valued at
$145,600,000, were exported to the
United States in 1965. This was more
in revenue than was earned by
Britain's car industry in the States
last year.
The report goes on to add that
"France, where Scotch is the snob
drink, is the second largest customer.
Which is remarkable, because import
regulations on spirits forbid advertis-
ing and nearly all publicity. (What
the Scotch Whisky Association thinks
about this is very interesting-and
wholly unprintable.)
"West Germany bought almost as
much as France, adding $11,480,000
to Britain's exchequer; Australia, the
fourth largest customer, ordered over
1,500,000 gallons-despite heavy
import duty.
"Belgium shelled out nearly
$8,400,000 on Scotch, and South
Africa over $5,600,000. Even China
bought some, and 36,000 gallons were
shipped to Muslim, spirit-forbidding
"In Eastern Europe exports were
fractional. But in Bulgaria and
Yugoslavia, to cater for British tour-
ists, sales are rising."

Facilities Being Expanded

For Atlantic LA Communities

Rainbow City area residents are
throwing energy and ideas into a
number of community projects that
have begun bearing fruit in the form
of greater recreational facilities for
the Atlantic side Latin American
Canal Zone communities.
The two major projects are the
Rainbow City nursery which opened
last month and the Sea Breeze Golf
The nursery idea was developed
through the Rainbow City Civic
Council, headed by President Rupert
Beckford, and representatives of a
cross section of local organizations.
Miss Clara Wattley, of the Social
Service staff, added her know-how to
the project and scores of others
pitched in.
Thanks to their efforts, the nursery
cares for 32 children between the
ages of 3 and 5 from 9:30 a.m. to

decorated the rooms in bright pictures

similar motifs popular with the sand

Junior sized chairs and tables were
painted and installed as were cots,
each with the name of the child to
whom it is assigned, used for naps
by the kiddies.
Beckford said there is more work
to be done on the nursery but asserts
with pride that the establishment is
operating smoothly already. Mrs.
Thomas said future plans call for
overall improvements of the nursery
The golf course, situated at the
former site of Camp Bierd adjacent
to the Old French Canal, also is the
result of community members to give
of their time and labor.
The course itself has seven holes
that are used by the golfers who
divide their time between play and
work. Grass has been planted,
greens built up and enlarged, weeds
cut away and innumerable other tasks
accomplished. Some trees, located in
strategic spots, have been left stand-
ing to serve as hazards. Overgrown
areas are being cleared to serve as
sites for other greens. Water pipes
have been laid to irrigate the fine
bermuda grass that has been planted.
A structure to be used as the club-
house serves mostly now as a store-
house for tools, lawn mowers and
equipment. Tables and chairs have
been donated for use inside the club-
house which is gradually being con-
verted into what will be a comfortable
adjunct to the golf course.

tucho de humo no significa nada.
Pero si el nifio derrama y se come
el contenido de various, entonces ten-
dri usted un problema.
Para que ousted pase sin peligro sus
fiestas de Navidad, le daremos estos
consejos: No permit que los niiios
toquen los adornos. En otras palabras,
no los deje solos donde puedan
comerse los adornos o quebrar un
Consejo numero dos. Siendo las le-
siones en los ojos las mas numerosas,
t6mese siempre unos cuantos minutes
para enseiiar el uso del nuevo juguete.
No permit que los nifios corran o
salten con objetos punzantes.
Si un menor ingiere alguna decora-
ci6n trate de hacerlo vcmitar o que
la escupa. Usar vomitivos es perder el
tiempo. Diluya el material t6xico ha-
ciendo que el nino beba agua. Es
possible que vomite ficilmente. Luego
mantenga al nifino lo mis quieto posi-
ble mientras viene el medico. Por otra
parte use el sentido comrin. Por un
adomrno chiquito, por supuesto que no
tendri que Dlamar al medico.
Por suerte los adornos de Navidad
son poco t6xicos.
Y asi . tendrn usted y los
suyos una verdaderamente Feliz

Los estudiantes necesitan informa-
ci6n de primera mano sobre las dife-
rentes carreras, para ayudarse a de-
tennrminar si tienen o no los requisitos
necesarios para seguir un campo par-
ticular de studios. El "Dia de la Pro-
fesi6n", llegan a la escuela consulto-
res en various campos de ocupaci6n y
comparten su experiencia ocupacional
con los alumnos.
El 19 de diciembre de este afio,
fue celebrado por segunda vez el
"Dia de la Profesi6n", en la Escuela
Secundaria de Rainbow City. El pro-
grama fue organizado por el Depar-
tamento de Guia y Consejeria. El

do de maestro de ceremonies el Pro-
fesor Justo Arroyo. Los estudiantes de

Reverendo Henry A. Blake, quienes
los exhortaron a aprovechar lo mejor
possible sus studios a fin de poder
desenvolverse en la dura competencia
del mundo de hoy. El Sr. Delano
Downs estuvo a cargo de la Invoca-
ci6n y el Pastor Robert Saddler im-

parti6 la bendici6n, mientras la Srta.
Maria Roberts interpretaba una selec-
ci6n vocal.
De las 9:10 a.m. a las 11:35 a.m.
los alumnos tuvieron el privilegio de
escuchar charlas sobre diferentes pro-
fesiones que les pudieran interesar.
En el period de 45 minutes destt-
nado a cada charla, habia un espacio
de unos 10 minutes en que los alum-
nos podian hacer las preguntas que
Hubo charlas sobre carreras profe-
sionales, oficios especializados y pro-
fesiones manuales o semimanuales;
algunos oradores hablaron en ingl6s,
otros lo hicieron en espafiol.
Esta es la lista de los oradores y los
t6picos que discutieron:
Walter Amade6, Farmac6utico del

El ex campe6n mundial del peso

El encuentro pactado a 10 asaltos
se celebr6 en el Estadio Olimpico
"Juan Dem6stenes Arosemena" y
Laguna, a pesar de no mostrar la velo-
cidad de otros combates, fue muy
superior a su rival.
El ecuatoriano sufri6 heridas en la
nariz, la boca y la ceja izquierda, por
las cuales sangr6 profusamente hasta
que el Arbitro suspendi6 el ya desigual

Se estiAn haciendo ahora los arre-
glos para que Laguna se enfrente al

Por otra parte, el Madison Square
Garden de Nueva York trata de con-
seguir un rival puertorriquefio para

via no ha sido conseguido, pues se
quiere la firma de Frankie NarvAez,

ban Santamaria, venci6 por decision
