Justo Arosemena

Students' Work
Work of the 11 young ladies of the
Justo Arosemena Institute in work-
experience assignments to units of
the Panama Canal organization re-

school high praise from Governor
In a letter to Professor Vicente
Bayard, assistant director of the
school, Governor Fleming said the
students "displayed, once again, your
school's excellence in the training of
young office workers.
"The comportment and efficiency
of the 11 young ladies is deserving of
the highest praise," the letter con-
tinued. "I wish to take this oppor-
tunity to congratulate you very sin-
cerely for the excellent job your
school is doing."

Cards Needed

By Students

All college students resident in the
Canal Zone who plan to depart the
Isthmus at the end of the Christmas
holidays are reminded by the Pan-
ama Canal Customs Office that they
are required to have departure cards
in their possession before they may
board a plane at Tocumen Airport.
These cards are easy to obtain, but
without them there's no embarking.
The departure cards are issued to
dependents of Canal employees by
the Customs officials at the Customs
office in the Terminal Building,
Balboa, in the Administration Build-
ing, Cristobal, or at the Transporta-
tion Branch office at the Balboa Rail-
road Station. All that is needed to
obtain the card is proof that the stu-
dent is a dependent of a Canal Zone-
Students are urged to obtain the
departure cards prior to proceeding
to the airport, as they will not be per-
mitted to embark an outgoing aircraft
without the departure card.

Citizenship Certificates ?

Machinery's Being Set Up

Certificates of U.S. citizenship can
now be issued in the Canal Zone,
under a law passed by the 89th Con-
gress and signed by the President in
early November.
And as soon as the machinery can
be set up, officials of the Immigration
Service will be in the Canal Zone
periodically to conduct interviews and
issue the certificates. Before the
recent law, the conducting of inter-
views and issuing of certificates were
activities restricted to Immigration
offices in the United States.
William T. Jarmon of the Immi-
gration and Naturalization Service,
Department of Justice, and A. J. Car-
michael, of the same agency, are in
the Canal Zone this week to discuss
plans and arrangements for handling
an expected flood of applications for
the certificates.
The Canal administration is co-
operating closely with Jarmon, of San
Antonio, and Carmichael, of Rich-
mond, to facilitate the speedy and
smooth handling of applications, in-
formation, and the required inter-
It is expected that things will be
ready to roll about the middle of
January. At that time, information
will be circulated on where to get
applications, how to fill them out, and
what offices will be able to furnish
information on procedures and answer
general questions.
An estimated 3,000 persons are
eligible for the certificate, which is
proof of U.S. citizenship. An average
of 60 births a month increases this
The service is available to all U.S.
citizens. It is expected that many who
reside in the Republic of Panama,
nearby countries, or are with U.S.
military missions in Latin America
will take advantage of the new
Basically, the officials said, for a
child born in the Canal Zone and
claiming U.S. citizenship through the
father or both parents, the applicant
must supply a birth certificate, a mar-
riage certificate of the parents, and, if
the applicant's parent or parents
became citizens at birth, the birth
certificate of the parent or parents.
The same basic requirements for
documentation apply to children born
in Panama of U.S. citizen parents,
when the U.S. citizen parent is em-
ployed by the U.S. Government at
the time of the child's birth.

In the case of a child born on
foreign soil, with one U.S. citizen
parent and the other of another cit-
izenship, 10 years of residence in the
United States prior to the child's birth
is a requirement. The statute dealing
with the Canal Zone determines the
citizenship status of a child according
to the law in effect at the time of
birth of the child.
If it is impossible to obtain any
one of the required documents or
records, and if it can be established
that a birth certificate does not exist,
then a baptismal certificate, school
record, census record-the latter
obtained from Pittsburg, Kans.-and
affidavits of persons living at the time
who have personal knowledge of the
event for which proof is required, are
Any document in a foreign lan-
guage must be accompanied by an

Mr. Jarmon stated. Important, too, is
that the original is presented together

for a certificate of U.S. citizenship is
a completely voluntary procedure,

Do YOU know what numbers to call in an emergency? Above are
three important numbers. Clip them out. They're just the size to tape
across the front of your telephone base, or paste above a wall phone.
And the type is large enough so that you may read it without glasses.
Suppose you have a prowler around your quarters, or open a door
and there's smoke pouring out. Would you have to dig for the tele-
phone book to find out what number to call? This may look familiar.
A similar item was published some months ago. Some people did
paste the numbers on their telephones, but they've become a little
the worse for wear. So here they are again.

How To Call for Help

How well you use the telephone
in an emergency can mean the differ-
ence between life and death. Many
persons in a crisis become so flustered
that they give wrong addresses and
even the wrong town to fire depart-
ments and operators.
If you know ahead of time what
to say, you won't be so apt to make
a mistake.
IHere are four points that you
should cover clearly and quickly in
an emergency call for help:
1. Tell where it happened. Give
house number and name of street.
Repeat it. A brief description of the
house will be helpful. This is espe-
cially important at night.
2. Tell what has happened. Is
your house on fire? Is someone bleed-
ing badly? Has someone had a heart
3. Tell what kind of help is
needed. Explain what kind of equip-
ment you think will be necessary.
4. Tell who you are. This is im-
portant when the emergency is not
obvious from the outside, especially ,
if a multi-family dwelling is involved.
A neighbor, asked for directions, will
be more likely to recognize your
name than your house number.
A lot to remember? No-it takes

about 10 seconds. After you've
finished don't hang up immediately.
Pause and give the person you're
talking to a chance to ask a question.
Aid in emergency is as close as the
nearest telephone-if you're able to
give essential information quickly.

Two Notaries

Named for Each

LA Community

Cov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr., has
appointed two notaries in each of
the Latin American communities.
The new notaries are residents of the
respective communities and will serve
for terms of 3 years. This measure
stems from a request of Aston M.
Parchment, representative of the Pe-
dro Miguel Civic Council, who
brought the subject up at the Ex-
ecutive Session of the Latin American
Civic Councils held October 2.
Parchment noted that frequently
residents of the Latin American com-
nmunities are in need of the services
of a notary and have to go to Balboa
for this service. Parchment said the
problem is most serious on Saturdays
when notaries are not available.
The new notaries, who were nom-
inated by the Civic Councils of their
respective communities are:
Santa Cruz-Louis Small, Dredging
Division; and Audley Webster, prin-
cipal of the Santa Cruz School;
Paraiso-Alfonso Alexis, Mainte-
nance Division; and George Richards,
teacher at Paraiso High School;
Pedro Miguel-Miss Clara Wattley,
social worker at the Pedro Miguel
Civic Center; and Aston Parchment,
school official for Pedro Miguel and
Rainbow City-Rupert Beckford,
Maintenance Division, Atlantic side;
and Mrs. Pearl Chilcott, School Divi-
sion, Rainbow City.

Pageant Sunday Night

A group of members of the Gatun
Union Church Sunday School will

A reception in the Social Hall of

Two Canal Zone College students receive certificates in recognition of the completion of another 50-mile Red Cross
physical fitness swim. Pat Basham, left completed her fifth 50-mile swim-making a total of 250 miles. Brian Keeney
completed his fourth 50-mile swim for a total of 200 miles. The presentation was made by Mrs. Jean Wainio,

En medicine hay muchas personas alas cuales se las conoce como "porta-
doras de germenes". Esto significa, que a pesar de que cllas dificilmente
contraerin una enfermedad determinada, pueden flicilmente transmitir la
enfermedad a otras personas.
Existe una gran similitud entire 6sto y los accidents de trinsito. Miles de
conductores evitan el verse envueltos en accidents de transit, pero dejan
una secuela de accidents detras de ellos.
La pregunta de (c6mo es esto possible? ya habrA surgido en la mente de
muchos. En el transito ligero del present, cualquier actitud inesperada o
erratica puede provocar un accident. Tomemos como ejemplo el motorist
que se da cuenta que estA por pasarse una salida e imprevistamente se diriie
hacia el lado derecho de la carretera, dejando detras de si una cadena de
colisiones que se ban producido al tener que disminuir la velocidad
sfibitamente el vehiculo de la carrilera contigua.
0 el conductor que inicia la march tan pronto como cambia la luz en el
semnAforo y se detiene a los pocos metros para dejar pasar a un peat6n retra-
sado. Este puede "atrapar" a los vehiculos que vienen detris y cuyos conduc-
tores no estaban preparados para un cambio tan inesperado de velocidad.
dCuintas veces no han tenido ustedes mismos que desviar inesperadamente
hacia la izquierda a fin de evitar a un "distraido" que arrancaba desde cerca
de la acera sin mirar? La reacci6n de desviarse bruscamente puede facilmente
Ilevar a un choque de frente con el vehiculo que viene en el sentido contrario
y cuyo conductor no esperaba tal maniobra, quedando el conductor que
provoc6 esto completamente despreocupado del accident que origin.
(Es usted un "portador de g6rmenes de accidentss? Deja a su paso un
reguero de guardabarros torcidos o de parrillas abolladas? 5Se ha detenido
iltimamente a mirar para atrAs y reflexionar sobre estos problems? Si no lo
ha hecho es convenient que lo haga y cuanto antes.
Los conductores experts pueden evitar accidents provocados por
conductores que actiian sin pensar, si ingieren dosis suficientes de manejo
Alguien siente pena por los conductores de los ejemplos dados mas arriba?
De ser asi es el moment para ingerir una dosis de Manejo Defensivo. Los
sintomas indican que los efectos de la dosis anterior estain desapareciendo.
