CFC Report:

Some Units

100% Now
With the 1968 Combined Fed-
eral Campaign only 1 day old today,
preliminary reports already have been
received from several units of 100
percent "fair share" participation by
their employees.
The Police Division and Industrial
Division, consistently among the
leaders in early reporting, indicate all
divisional employees are lined up for
100 percent fair share giving. Three
units of the Motor Transportation Di-
vision: La Boca Service Station, Pier
18 Repair Shop, and the Ancon Body
and Paint Shop, all have 100 percent.
In the Administrative Services Di-
vision, 100 percent pledges were
reported for employees of the Graphic
Branch and General Services Branch.
Today is a big day for many Pan-
Canal units that have rallies and other
special events to provide an enthu-
siastic kickoff for the appeal.
One of today's highlights is a "barn-
storming tour" of all Supply and Com-
munity Service Bureau units on both
sides of the Isthmus. Participating
will be a musical combo, dancers, and
S&CS officials.
Music, refreshments, speeches, and
prizes are on the agenda today for
the Navigation Division, which has
scheduled rallies at both Balboa and
Gatun. Another Industrial Division
rally at Mount Hope will have the
Uruguay Navy destroyer Uruguay-at
Mount Hope for overhaul-"dressed"
with signal flags. The captain, offi-
cers, and crew of the ship will attend
the rally.
The Locks Division has scheduled
two CFC kickoff rallies, October 2
on the Pacific side and October 4 on
the Atlantic side. The Rev. Clarence
C. Payne of Balboa Union Church will
speak at the Atlantic side rally and
U.S. District Court Judge Guthrie F.
Crowe on the Pacific side.
The overall goal of this year's cam-
paign, to run through October 31, is
$215,400, with individual goals
assigned to participating agencies:
Panama Canal organization; Army;
Air Force; Navy; Southern Command;
other Canal Zone agencies; and other
non-Canal Zone agencies.
Proceeds from the drive will go to
benefit 21 agencies of the United
Fund and 3 units of the International
Service Agencies.

Nearly 500 citizenship certificates were issued during a busy 2-week stay here just concluded by examiners from
the New Orleans office of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, Department of Justice. Here, a wife and two
junior size citizens get their certificates: Mrs. Jim R. Givens, son Luke Boynton Givens, 2, and daughter Teresa
Maria Givens, 2 months. Mr. Givens, second from right, is administrative officer in the Health Bureau. Andrew J.
Carmichael, Jr., is at left, and Harold J. Neubauer at right. Both are examiners. Also here for the hearings was a
third examiner, William T. Jarmon (not in picture). Additional hearings for issuance of citizenship certificates will be
held here in January. The cutoff date for applications for hearings then will be November 1.

Sanders Named

New Assistant

General Counsel
Attorney W. Allen Sanders has been
promoted to Assistant General Coun-
sel in the Panama Canal's Office of
the General Counsel. He joins Attor-

General Counsel.
Sanders completed his prelaw stu-
dies at Troy State Teachers College,

Civic Council


Apparent "deterioration" of Canal
Zone communities, new school hours,
and poor conduct by a small minority
of teenagers were the majoi topics of
discussion at the first U.S. Civic
Council Executive Session since the
summer interlude.
Capt. Howard Buehler, president
of the Pacific Civic Council, observed
that the appearance of some Canal
Zone communities seems to be dete-
riorating and as a possible remedy
suggested a publicity campaign urging
people to take more pride in their
Governor Leber, who presided over
the session, concurred that upon his
return to the Isthmus he noticed a
distinct change in some of the Canal
Zone towns. More emphasis'is being
placed on painting of homes, better
trash and garbage collections, and
general maintenance. Residents with
cars that don't run and other unsightly
trash are being told to clean it up. In
some cases, old cars have been hauled
away and they. will be .continued
to be removed when warranted, the
Governor explained.
Mildew and the need for more
painting have much to do with the
appearance of buildings but much is
being done to improve the situation,
and more work will be carried out in
this area with the start of dry season.
Mrs. Majel Reinheimer, first vice
president of the Cristobal-Margarita-
Brazos Heights Civic Council, com-
mented that part of the deterioration
can be attributed to several feet of
rainfall a year and the lack of suffi-
cient topsoil. Mrs. Reinheimer added
that many houses should be replaced
with new buildings.
Governor Leber replied that more
funds are available now than, say 2
years ago, for housing and similar
needs. The money that is available,
however, must be spent judiciously.
Because of the financial limitations
many dwellings that should be re-
placed are refurbished and made do.
The matter of the new schools
hours at U.S. schools was brought up
by Mrs. Beverly Baker, president of
the Coco Solo Civic Council. On the

"If Only Those Bottles Could Speak"

. .. Maybe It's Best That They Can't

"If only those bottles could speak,"
said a Canal Zone Library-Museum
visitor, studying one and then another
of the old bottles on display from the
collection of James P. MacLaren,
Chief, Division of Sanitation of the
Canal Zone Health Bureau.
The bottles on display range from
a fire extinguisher hand grenade bottle
from New York, once used in the
Canal Zone, to "dog bottles" that had
come, filled with whiskey, from
Germany. French wine bottles show
early techniques of glass blowing.
Ireland is represented with mineral
water and soda bottles that have
rounded bottoms. A "nickle beer"
bottle is from Scotland.
There are "black glass" bottles and
ink bottles, as well as a variety of
inkwells that were so much in vogue
before the advent of fountain pens . .

as well as before the construction of
the Canal.
Patent medicine vendors apparently
did well on the Isthmus in the days
of yore, judging by the bottles left
behind by the 49'ers and the early
Canal diggers. In the collection of
patent medicine bottles from the
United States are bottles that held
"Genuine Sarsaparilla," "Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp Root Kidney-Liver and
Bladder Cure," "Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera, and Diarrhea R< 'ly,"
"Benjamin's Jamaican Healin, 1,"
and "Barry's Tricopherous for the
Skin and Hair."
MacLaren is a member of the
Antique Bottle Collectors Association
of Sacramento, Calif.
The exhibit of old bottles is on dis-
play in the rear lighted case of the
Canal Zone Museum.

The subject was bottles as Mrs. Gloria Rose (left) and Miss Janice Spencer, Canal Zone Library aids, examined
antique bottles from the collection of James P. MacLaren now on display in the Canal Zone Museum in the Civil
Affairs Building, Ancon.

Tourney Slated

Registrations close October 8 for
the Atlantic area I. L. Maduro, Jr.,
Free Zone Tennis Tournament.
There'll be men's singles and doubles,
women's singles and mixed doubles.
The entry fee is $2.50 per person
for each event. Registration forms are
available at the Cristobal YMCA and
will be mailed on request. They
also are available from tournament
committee members.
Joseph Noia, executive director of
the Cristobal YMCA, is tournament
committee chairman. Other commit-
tee members are George Gercich,
Stanley Loney, Carlton Taft, Huntley

and Mrs. Joan Harris and, on the
Pacific side, Dr. Alberto Calvo, Juan
Fern'ndez, and Lt. Col. John Valtra.

Two ounces of lean, edible portion
(thal is, not counting fat or bone) is
considered one serving. Two eggs
make one serving, but many of us
eat only one egg at a time. In this
case, one slice of lunch meat or one
frankfurter, each of which equals
about I ounce of meat, may be used
for lunch to complete one serving.
A helping of some meat at dinner
will then be the second serving of
meat and the day's requirement will
be met. Of course, the particular
choices and how they are divided
throughout the three meals depends
upon your personal preference. Any
arrangement is a good -one as long as
it adds up to two or more servings
of protein-rich food daily.
All of the foods mentioned so far
are of animal origin. Protein from
animal sources is of the high quality
required by the body and should be
present at every meal. Those who are
in the habit of skipping meals are
breaking sound health rules and are
doing themselves an injustice. Re-
membering all of the foods from both
the animal foods listed above and the
milk and milk products mentioned in
an earlier column, it is generally easy
to eat some animal protein at every

This is the fourth of a series of
nutrition discussions b!y Mrs. Shirley
0. Dean, Public Health Nutritionist
with the Division of Preventive Med-
icine. She also teaches nutrition at
Canal Zone College.

Having previously been introduced
to the Basic Four Food Groups, we
are now discussing each of the groups
in greater detail. The meat group
provides a variety of nutrients which
contribute richly to the day's nutri-
tional requirement:

1. Protein
to build, maintain and repair all
body tissues
to help in the formation of body
hormones and enzymes
to help build resistance to dis-
to provide energy
2. Fat
to provide energy for work and
to add flavor and staying quality
to daily meals
to carry fat-soluble vitamins
3. Iron
to help form hemoglobin, the
vital substance in the red
blood cells which carries oxy-
gen to all body tissues
4. Niacin
to help the body release energy
from food
to help normal function of the
nervous and digestive systems
to maintain healthy blood vessels
5. Thiamin
to help body release energy from
to aid normal function of nervous
and digestive systems
to help regulate appetite

All of the five nutrients listed above
are essential nutrients; that is, the
human body is unable to make them.
We must furnish the body these raw
materials by eating the proper foods
at every day's meals. Of these nutri-
ents, iron and protein are two which
are so important as to require special
Every single body cell, including
even the bones and teeth, is basically
protein. Protein is required for body
secretions and fluids such as enzymes,
hormones, antibodies, and blood.
When new tissue is being formed, as
in the case of the growing child, a
pregnant woman, or in wound heal-
ing, protein is even more vital. With-
out it, growth simply will not occur.
But even for the normal, healthy
adult protein is essential. Our body
is continually using up, replacing, or
repairing itself, just as a car, or a
building or a highway must be con-
stantly maintained. Because of these
vital needs for protein and especially
because of the unique and compli-
cated way in which it has to be used
by the body, there must be some
source of protein present in every

Foreman Receives Turtle Club Award

A dented hard hat that probably
saved the wearer from serious injury
brought Jesius M. Mena, Grounds
Branch foreman, Northern District,
membership in the exclusive Turtle
Club. Turtle Club members are em-
ployees of the Panama Canal organi-
zation who wore their safety hard hats
while at work and escaped serious
injury in an on-the-job accident.
In Mena's case, he was struck on
his hard hat by a flying stone that
glanced off the rotary blades of a grass
cutting machine familiarly known as
the "flying saucer" grass cutter. His
safety hat was dented. Without it,

Mena could have received a serious
head injury.
Formal presentation of the Turtle
Club credentials took place in the
Mount Hope Cemetery Grounds
Office in the presence of Mena's crew.
R. K. Erbe, Deputy Director, Sup-
ply and Community Service Bureau,
congratulated Mena on his Turtle
Club membership. Also present for
the Turtle Club ceremony were H. C.
Egolf, Chief, Community Services
Division; R. M. Murphy, Northern
District General Supervisor; and J. R.
Maravilla, Acting Safety Officer. (Photo

Increase in Flu

Expected Along

An increased number of cases of
influenza is expected along the eastern
seaboard of the United States this
winter. Health officials say the type
will be the A strain of Asian one,
which occurs every 2 or 3 years.
There may be a few cases here, via
flu viruses brought here by travelers
passing through or Isthmus residents
returning from flu areas.
If you are one of the fortunate ones
who are anticipating a Christmas
vacation in the States, the Health
Bureau advises, drop into your Com-
munity Health Center and have your
influenza immunization brought up to
If you have not received influenza
vaccine since 1963 you will receive
two injections (one now and one 2
months later). If you have kept your
immunization current, you will need
only a "booster" injection which
should be given about 1 month before
going to the United States.
Those persons who do not plan to
visit the United States in December
or January should receive influenza
injections after the Christmas holi-
days, for the influenza season in the
Canal Zone comes during the months
of April and May.

desde una botella extintora de incen-
dios tipo granada de mano, de Nueva
York, que en un tiempo se us6 en la
Zona del Canal, hasta "botellas de

whisky, provenientes de Alemania.
