Schools Earn

Ilth Safety

"Everyone in the Canal Zone Divi-
sion of Schools is doing an excep-
tionally fine job in the safety program.
The time, care, and attention given
the safety program is evidenced in
the Canal Zone Division of Schools'
record in receiving the National
Safety Council Certificate of Achieve-
ment for the 11th year," said Lt. Gov.
H. R. Parfitt as he presented the cer-
tificate to F. A. Castles, Superinten-
dent of the Canal Zone Division of
Schools, in a brief ceremony held in
the Lieutenant Governor's office.
Present were B. I. Everson, Direc-
tor of the Civil Affairs Bureau, and
the top officials in the Division of
The National Safety Council Cer-
tificate of Achievement was awarded
to the Canal Zone Division of Schools
testifying to the participation of 90
percent or more of the Canal Zone
schools in the National School Safety
program. With this honor, the Canal
Zone Division of Schools is inscribed
on the National Safety Council School
Safety Honor Roll for the llth year,
covering the school year 1966-67.
The Canal Zone Latin American
and U.S. schools participated in the
safety program, each individual
school qualifying on its own merit.
The schools now are qualifying for
the Honor Roll for the 12th year.


Thumbs Down

On Bare Feet
The Panama Canal Locks Division
is taking a dim view of visitors who
go into the locks areas without their
In fact, Truman H. Hoenke, Chief
of the Locks Division, has ruled that
visitors arriving at the entrance to the
locks areas in their bare feet will be
denied entrance. And, if they are
already inside, they will be asked
to leave.
Presumably those in the latter class
are not beyond fooling the guard at
the gate by wearing their shoes until
they are safely inside.
It is not that the Locks Division
officials object to bare feet. Every
man (or woman) to his (or her) own
taste, they reason. It's just that the
locks visitor areas are adjacent to
industrial activities where there is
danger from metal particles, glass, or
other sharp items.
The ruling has been issued to
prevent injury.

Of Housing

Under Way
Cooperation of occupants is re-
quested in inspection of Canal Zone
housing units under way on both
sides of the Isthmus. Purpose of the
inspection is to establish cost esti-
mates on any major repairs needed in
the future.
This is part of a long-range pro-
gram launched in March 1964 and
the objective of the program, to be
carried out over a period of several
years, is to get major repairs done at
least possible cost to those who pay
rent. It does not replace regular
housing maintenance, which is being
continued as usual.
Thomas W. Grimison, of the Spe-
cifications and Estimates Branch of
the Engineering Division, Engineer-
ing and Construction Bureau, is
assigned to the program, which is
sponsored by the Community Serv-
ices Division of the Supply and
Community Service Bureau.
Maintenance inspections are to be
made at least once each 3 years on
all 6,000 Panama iCanal organization
housing units.

For appointments, call 2-6454
or 2-6369.
If something comes up that
will make it impossible for you
to keep an appointment:
Call (either of the above num-
bers) and let the Clinic Clerk
know. Your failure to cancel an
appointment, so that it may be
used by another patient, might
deprive someone else of early
medical care.

Spanish Classes

Will Start Monday

Spanish language classes for
beginners, intennediate, and ad-
vanced students are scheduled to
begin at the Balboa YMCA Monday.
Enrollment for classes will be for
2 months.
Classes at the Balboa "Y" are de-
signed primarily to teach and im-
prove facility in the use of the
Spanish language through the con-
versational method of mastering a
prescribed pattern of Spanish phrases.
Further information may be ob-
tained from the service desk of the
"Y" or by calling 2-2839 or 2-2759
during the day or evening.

Drive safely-Avoid that 6-foot hole. !

If at first you do succeed, try some-
thing more difficult.

The text of the President's pro-
clamation follows:
"Each year, half a million Amer-
icans-most of them children-acci-
dentally swallow substances that
could kill or injure them.
*Two familiar substances-medi-
cine and household products-are
among the most dangerous causes of
accidental poisoning among children.
Both are valuable assets in our homes
-when used as directed. Yet both
are a potential danger-a danger no
more remote than the unknowing
grasp of a small child.
"The Federal Government, to-
gether with State and local agencies
private industry, and professional and
civic organizations, has tried to alert
Americans to the dangers that lie on
the shelves of a careless home. Since
1962, when we first called national
attention to this threat, deaths by
accidental poisoning among children
under 5 years of age has declined
20 percent.
"I recently signed into law a bill
to establish a National Commission
on Product Safety whose job it will
be to identify dangerous household
"We must do more. We need to
be much more alert to the dangers of
accidental poisoning. And we need
to learn more about how to treat it.
"To stimulate public interest in this
problem, I am designating the third
week in March as National Poison
Prevention Week, as requested by
DON B. JOHNSON, President of
the United States of America, do
hereby proclaim the week beginning
March 17, 1968, as National Poison
Prevention Week.
"I direct the appropriate agencies
of the Federal Government, and
I invite State and local Governments
and organizations, to participate
actively in programs designed to
promote better protection against
accidental poisonings, particularly
among children."

of instruction and making normal

In reference to queries on other
defenments, the following explana-
tions have been provided by the
Canal Zone Selective Service Head-
Q. Are junior college students
eligible for deferment?
A. Local boards may consider for
Class II-A (occupational deferment)
those registrants who are pursuing a
full-time course of study that will not
lead to a baccalaureate degree, in
educational institutions such as junior
colleges, business schools, and ap-
proved vocational schools.
Students transferring from one in-
stitution to another, whether a 2-year
or 4-year institution, may be con-
sidered for II-S (student deferment)
or II-A (occupational deferment) de-
pending upon the educational pro-
grams in which they enroll, provided
that they continue to make normal
progress, in accordance with regula-
tions, toward completion of their
Q. In view of the announcement
that Selective Service has suspended
the use of the lists of essential activi-
ties and critical occupations, is there
any change in the authority for grant-
ing occupational deferments in
Class II-A?
A. No. Local draft boards have
the continuing responsibility, under
law, to use their discretion to grant
occupational deferments, in individ-
ual cases, based on a showing of
essential community need. Local
boards will continue to consider oc-
cupational deferments on that basis,
including deferment of those in
training for essential skills, such as

Greetings .. .
The David Fair opens tonight in
that lively provincial capital, and
from all indications there are quite a
few Zone folks planning to attend
the festivities this weekend . Jerry
Thompson finally got even with Bill
De La Mater in the Softball competi-
tion. He got a hit in the game the
other night . Dick Coy is con-
sidered a "favorite son" of the State
of North Carolina, 'cause he always
has at least three different brands of
cigarettes with him . Have you
noticed all the good looking girls at
the same table for coffee in the
mornings, with Esther Niskanen and
Beverly Bowman? . The Cristobal
High School crowd is really tickled
over their fine showing during the
Engineering Week TV Quiz Show ...
Ed MacVittie and his camera have
created a film shortage locally, ac-
cording to the wags in the coffee
shop . Bill Benny keeps the service
center staff smiling and the service
excellent . Tony Suescum isn't
smiling much since someone smashed
into his new Jaguar sedan and kept
going . Alvin Hamilton and
Lorenzo Barrera are champion
domino players in their off-duty
hours from MTD . And while at
MTD, say hello to friendly Elsie
Yates . Elmer Orr says he is the
"best" in Spanish-"el mejor" (Oooh!)
.and what about his idea to call
the Panama Railroad, the "PC&B"-
Panama to Colon and Back??? . .
Clyde Willman (we spelled it right
this time) is considered a "good guy"
Sby the students at BHS-and he's the
Principal! . Myrtle Grannum help-
ing the undecided customers at
Housewares . I see that since they
changed the Commissary hours in
order to remain open during the
noon hour-there are more husbands
than wives doing the shopping!!!
(Hello, Carrie Nation?) . Norine
Hughes lost her Seal-point Siamese
cat. It ran away from home. (Have
you checked the SPCA, Norine?) ...
We're told somebody suggested to
E&C Director Jim Betts that if he

"What're yuh skeered of?" asks Stephen Firth, right. "You was a worm
once!" Apparently Eileen Ridge, left, still thinks a scream is the right reaction
to a worm. Both appear in a scene from the Cristobal High School Thespian
play, "Inherit The Wind."


By Emily J. Price

Two young Englishmen, David
Frost and Antony Jay, take a sharp
look at present day England in The
English. A funny, caustic book, it
describes startling changes such as
the stately homes of England dis-
appearing from view and the dis-
cotheques of swinging London taking
their place. The younger generation,
English cooking, government lan-
guage, the Common market are all
subjects for dissection by the authors,
one a drama critic and the other a
well-known British TV personality.
Hillary Waugh traces the path of
a vanished $60,000 in his new mys-
tery Con Game. Five property owners
engage in dubious finance until a
couple of them turn up missing. This
is a swift moving story for mystery

Trinidad Cricket

Team Booked for

5 Matches Here
Final arrangements have been
made for the arrival of the Castillo
cricket team of Trinidad at Tocumen
Airport March 30. The visitors will
play five matches against local cricket
teams over a 2-week period.
The series is being conducted as a
tribute to the retired West Indians of
Sthe Republic of Panama. Admission
to all games will be free. Tour ex-
penses are being met by the sale of
$1 booster tickets which may be ob-
tained from members of the local
cricket teams.
The schedule:
10 a.m., March 31, Mount Hope
Stadium: Trinidad vs. Atlantic All
10 a.m., April 3, Santa Cruz: Tri-
nidad vs. Pacific All Stars.
10 a.m., April 4, Mount Hope Sta-
dium: Trinidad vs. Lucas C.C.
11 a.m., April 6 and 7, Balboa
Stadium: Trinidad vs. Isthmian All
10 a.m., April 9, Paraiso: Trinidad
vs. Bernarr Thompson's XI.
Formal day practice sessions for
the local players are now being held
at Paraiso and at Mount Hope. Spe-
cial night practices will begin next
week, Monday through Friday, at
the Paraiso Ball Park. All cricketers
are urged to attend the practices.

New York's greatest recreation
area from the Metropolitan Museum
to the Zoo is covered in Central Park;
a History and a Guide, by Henry
Hope Reed and Sophia Duckworth.
The history and original planning of
the park are well covered as are the
problems of vandalism, crime, and
traffic. Included are guides for two
walking tours of the park, and the
appendix has lists of birds and flower-
ing plants with the dates on which
they are most beautiful.
Alan Scholefield spent part of his
childhood in the Zulu country of
South Africa. His novel Great Ele-
phant is a stirring adventure story of
the Zulu Wars of the nineteenth cen-
tury and the Zulu Chief Chaka,
whose name means "great elephant."
Against this savage and splendid
background the story of a father-son
conflict appears in sharp relief, in an
exciting and unusual book.
Two on the Rocks is the true story
of Gerald F. Carlson, a young Amer-
ican school teacher, and his wife,
who went to Little Diomede Island
in Bering Strait to teach in an Eskimo
school. As it turned out, teaching was
only one of his duties, his talents as
do-it-yourself doctor, radio operator
and story teller were also in demand.
The Eskimos and their tense struggle
for survival are clearly pictured in
this sympathetic account.

Tryouts for "Only An Orphan
Girl," a melodrama in four acts to be
presented in April by the Theatre
Guild at the Ancon Playhouse, are
scheduled for March 18, 19, and 20.
The Playhouse will be open each of
those evenings at 7:30 p.m. Everyone
interested in taking part is invited to
join the local barnstorming troup.
Eight characters are needed for
"Only An Orphan Girl," including a
villain, from the city; a clean-cut
farm lad; his father and mother;
Nellie the orphan girl; a fair stranger;
a neighbor and the neighbor's
daughter, described as "a ray of

se usan diariamente y que pueden
causar graves enfermedades y a veces
hasta la muerte si se ingieren.
El Gobernador advierte a todos
que se familiaricen con los antidotos

de los cuales vienen impresos en las
etiquetas de algunos potentes vene-

Debido a la gran cantidad de litc-

nientes a venenos pueden ser contes-
tadas por el centro.

El texto de la proclama es el
"Cada afio, medio mill6n de ame-
ricanos-la mayoria nifios-accidental-
mente toman substancias que pueden
matarlos o lastimarlos gravemente.
"Dos substancias familiares-medi-
cinas y products caseros-estAn entire
las mis peligrosas causes de accident
por envenenamiento entire los nifios.
Las dos son posesiones valiosas en
nuestras casas-cuando se usan como
es debido. Sin embargo, ambos cons-
tituyen un peligro potential porque
los nifios pueden tomarlo en un
moment de descuido de sus padres.
"El Gobierno Federal, junto con
el Estado y agencies industriales pri-
vadas, organizaciones profesionales y
civicas, han tratado de advertir a los
americanos los peligros que encierran
una casa desordenada. Desde 1962,
cuando llamamos la atenci6n national
sobre esta amenaza, las muertes por
accidents de envenenamientos entire
los niios menores de 5 afios, han
disminuido un 20 por ciento.
"Recientemente he finnado un pro-
yecto de ley para establecer una Co-
misi6n Nacional Sobre la Seguridad
de Articulos Caseros, y su trabajo
consistira en identificar los produc-
tos caseros peligrosos.

El reacondicionamiento de las esclusas generalmente comienza con la limpieza del fondo de las cAmaras donde
quedan depositadas toneladas de fango y otras materials. Muchas veces se encuentra una gran cantidad de pieces
que quedan atrapados al cerrarse las compuertas. En la labor de reacondicionamiento de las esclusas obtienen
trabajo centenares de obreros panamefios. Esta vista fue tomada durante el present reacondicionamiento de las
Esclusas de Gat6n.

No Ande Descaizo

En las Esclusas
La Division de Esclusas del Canal
de Panama no estA viendo con buenos
ojos a los visitantes que van descalzos
por el Area de las esclusas.
Por esta raz6n, Truman H. Hoenke,
Jefe de la Divisi6n de Esclusas, ha
ordenado que se niegue la entrada a
las esclusas a los visitantes que vayan
Sdescalzos. Y en caso de que esten ya
dentro de las esclusas descalzos, se
les pedirA que abandonen el Area.
Probablemente estos l6timos traten
de engafiar al guardia al entrar con
zapatos para quitarselos luego cuando
ya est6n dentro a salvo.
No es que la Divisi6n de Esclusas
se oponga al andar descalzo. Todo
hombre o mujer tiene su gusto y
raz6n. Es s6lo que el Area de los visi-
tantes en las esclusas, estA adyacente
a las actividades industriales done
hay peligrosas particular de metales,

El gran historiador panameio
Ruben Dario Caries en su libro
"CuAndo Fueron Fundados los Pue-
blos y Ciudades del Istmo de Pana-
mB" nos trae un relato escrito por
Cockburn, un fugitive y extraviado
que pas6 de Honduras BritAnica a
Chiriqui en 1732, sobre la invasion
de los indios mosquitos al incipiente
villorrio de San Jos6 de David.
He aqui el mencionado pasaje:
"Lleg6 una compafiia de estos in-
dios bravos a la ciudad y la saque6
IlevAndose much riqueza. Los habi-
tantes que eran pocos y no estaban
aperoibidos para tal enemigo, se vie-
ron obligados a pasar por todo; y
despues del saqueo, los indios bravos
cometieron una de las crueldades
mis atroces que puede caber en co-
raz6n de hombre. S61o habia un cl6-
rigo en La Villa, que era espafiol, de
la Orden de San Francisco, a quien
apresaron y dieron muerte del si-
guiente modo inhumane: primero lo
escalparon, arrancindole la piel y
dejandole el crineo desnudo. Luego
clavaron la piel a una lanza y baila-
ron en derredor durante largo tiem-
po; despues plantaron un palo alto
en el suelo, empalando el cuerpo del
clerigo todavia vivo y divirtiendose
con bArbara alegria ante la exquisite

tortura, burlAndose de su profesi6n y
diciendo que s6lo era aquello poca
venganza por el torrente de sangre
india hasta entonces vertida por los
espafioles. Despu6s de haberse sacia-
do los ojos con tan lamentable espec-
taculo, hicieron una gran hoguera en
torno de la victim y siguieron bai-
lando alrededor del fuego hasta que-
dar el cuerpo reducido a cenizas".

Por ahorrarse unos minutes el conductor que maneja
a gran velocidad se expone a grandes riesgos.

EL CONDUCTOR que maneja a gran velocidad no tiene ninguna garantia
de que va a Ilegar a su destiny mis pronto que aqu6l que conduce manteniendo
una velocidad moderada. Lo mas que podri lograr son unos pocos minutes y
6stos no compensan por los riesgos que corre.
Hay cuatro razones bAsicas por las cuales la velocidad excesiva es peligrosa.
Estas son:
*En un moment de emergencia el conductor tiene menos tiempo para pensar
y actuar.
* Mientras mis es la velocidad a la que se esti viajando, mayor es el tiempo
que se require para detener el vehiculo.
* Si un vehiculo tiene un accident, las consecuencias serin mis series si
viajaba a gran velocidad que si lo hacia a velocidad moderada.
* La habilidad del conductor para ver y examiner el camino, tanto al frente
como a los lados, se reduce a media que la velocidad aumenta*

quier cosa que estd cerca. Un Arbol
aislado es el blanco con mayors posi-
bilidades ya que es el objeto miAs alto
en el Area.
El lugar rods seguro . es dentro
de un autom6vil debido a la estruc-
tura de metal que tiene. Los investi-
gadores de los laboratories de la
Westinghouse infonnan que cuando
cae un rayo en un autom6vil, la co-
rriente circula por todo el metal, via-
jando por los muelles, ejes y cojinetes
hasta llegar a las ruedas. De alli la
carga electric salta a los neumaticos
y pasa a la tierra.

recida dentro de un autom6vil sufrirA
ligeras quemaduras, solamente si estA

hecho cierto es que los investigadores
tienen grandes dificultades para en-
contrar casos en que un automOvil
haya recibido la descarga de un rayo.
