Improved Collection

Of Garbage Announced

A revised garbage piick tlu s'lchd-
uile, designed to have tihe rI'tfus
removed from neighborhoods served
by containers the same day they aire
filled, has been started by the Coin-
munity Services Division.
In the past, garbage was collected
from the large rodent-proof con-
tainers the day after they were filled.
Under the improved schedule,
Canal Zone homes will continue to
be serviced every other day, but the
containers where the garbage is con-
solidated will be emptied the same
The new schedule was the result
of complaints that leaving garbage
in the containers over night could
cause an odor problem and be a
breeding area for insects.
Harry C. Egolf, acting Supply
and Community Service Bureau
director, said that each container is
sprayed with a detergent-deodorizer
plus an insecticide every time it is
Daily inspections of the metal
garbage containers are made by
Community Services Division as
well as the Health Bureau's Divi-
sion of Sanitation. Results of these
investigations have shown that there
has been no fly breeding either in
the containers or the contents, offi-
cials said.
The container system was begun
in many areas about a year ago and
did away with garbage collections
from homes by truck which was un-
satisfactory because of high costs,
unsafe mechanical equipment, and
narrow streets.
Now, garbage is collected from
homes early in the day by hand
cart and placed in the containers.
Each container serves 30 to 40
homes, depending on the area
Now being studied by bureau

Happy Father's Day

Could there be a better gift for Father's Day than this one? Walter
Marquez, the smiling new father who is taking his first look at his offspring,
thinks not. Holding the infant at Gorgas Hospital is Mrs. James Young.
Marquez is with the U.S. Army Engineering Services at Fort Clayton.
Father's Day, as Marquez well knows, is this Sunday, June 15.

Where's the Action?

At Balboa Teen Club

Where shall we go now? Most
Pacific side teenagers go where the
action is-the Balboa Teen Club.
where the young set goes to dance
and share a few hours of fun after
school, after games, on weekends
and on holidays. This is the main
objective of the club. It provides a
place for young people to go after
athletic events or the movies when
it is still too early to end a pleasant
In a lively and respectable atmos-
phere, with the supervision of adults
who maintain a strict control over
the conduct of the members and
their guests, the teenagers dance,
play ping-pong, pool, and other
games, enjoy snacks or hold gab
fests. They also finish off furniture,
have art contests, and promote their
own activities programs.

Date for Pet


Is Changed

Dog and cat owners in the Canal
Zone are advised that the date of
the annual registration of their pets,
which was formerly done during the
month of July, has been changed
to October.
The registration requires that any
cat or dog over 4 months of age,
owned or in the custody of residents
in the Canal Zone, must have a valid
certificate of vaccination against
rabies. Dogs are vaccinated every
3 years and cats every year.
According to the change in date
of registration, both dogs and cats
must have a new license tag each
year and by the 31 of October every
dog and cat in the Canal Zone must
be registered and be wearing a 1969
license tag.

A new volume in the "Regions of
America" series is The Rockies by
David Lavender. Born and raised in
Telluride, Colo., the author is im-
mensely knowledgeable about the
whole range of the Rockies and its
history. He writes with insight of
the strong personalities who came
to develop the mines, the ranches,
the railroads, and the towns. This
is a very readable book of little-
known history.
Cover Her With Roses by Rex
Anderson is a first novel and a good
mystery. The hero, a college boy
who tells the story, is believable
and very human. Mystery fans will

A collection of original paintings
(lone by local artists especially for
the Corozal Hospital Medical-Nurs-
ing Unit has been received at Coro-
zal Hospital and will be used to -
decorate the walls of the Medical
Unit. .
This is the second time in 2 years
that local artists have presented
paintings to the hospital in response
to efforts of Mrs. Mary Ausnehmer,
nurse in charge of the Medical Unit
a;nd member of the Orchid Chapter
of the Eastern Star.
Last year more than 20 paintings,
done in bright and cheerful colors,
were donated by students of Mrs.
Joseph Schumacher, art teacher at
Balboa High School.
This year, paintings of familiar Capt. Thorn
scenes in the Republic of Panama
and the Canal Zone were done for
the hospital by Mrs. Katherine
Meissner, Mrs. Carol Hardenbrook,
Mrs. Coryne Anderson, Mrs. Sue
Hendrickson, Mrs. Laura Spencer,
and Mrs. Agnes Bowen, all of the
Balboa Chapter of the American
Penwomen. Supplies were donated
both years by members of the
Orchid Chapter of the Eastern Star.
The patients in the Medical-Nurs-
ing Unit where the paintings are to
be hung, are the "senior citizens"
of Corozal who seldom have an
opportunity to leave the hospital
because of age or physical infinity.
The paintings cheer up their lives
considerably, Mrs. Ausnehmer says.
Visitors to the hospital are invited
to view the paintings.

Lifeboat drill is no problem on the TV "Fairstar" when Miss Christine
Valdor is aboard. Miss Valdor, who holds the title of Miss Tasmania 1969,
traveled through the Panama Canal on her way from Australia to England
as a guest of the Sitmar Line which plays host to the various state winners
of the Miss Australia Quest. The contest to choose Miss Australia is held
each year to raise funds for the Spastic Children's Center in Australia.
Christine is a model in Tasmania and hopes to continue with this work in
Europe and Australia.


Child Safety

Urged Aboard

SS Cristobal
The Water Transportation Divi-
sion reminds all parents to maintain
close supervision over small chil-
dren while traveling aboard the
SS Cristobal.
In the past, many instances have
been noted of unattended small chil-
dren climbing the ship's rails and
indulging in other unsafe practices
which could endanger their lives.
Parents should carefully instruct,
supervise, and safeguard their small
children at all times while aboard
the vessel. Such instructions and
supervision will help prevent both
minor and major accidents.

The unhappy build walls about
them. The joyful build bridges.

Conservation begins when ian
realizes there will be a tomorrow.

The gang of fonner Canal em-
ployees in the St. Petersburg,
Florida area are snickering these
days at the antics of one Bill
DeVore. When Bill was on the
Isthmus, he used to enjoy needling
certain people about the Canal
publications, the SPILLWAY and
RIVIEw. Now, so say our Saint Pete
correspondents, the same Bill
DeVore guards his SPILLWAY and
REVIEW copies as though they were
made of gold, and only lends them
to friends of long standing, family
members, and visiting firemen.

Panama Plant

Life Described

By Columnist
In the column, "Report From
Latin America" Barry Bishop, the
Correspondent, recently wrote of
Panama as a region for plant
Bishop refers to Dr. John Dwyer,
a well-known biologist and botanist
who describes Panama as one of the
"real plant collector's paradises" of
the entire world.
Dwyer, who is professor of biol-
ogy at St. Louis University and staff
member of the Missouri Botanical
Garden, has made several trips to
Panama to collect plants, dry them,
and send them to universities and
museums in the United States.
Reporting on his experiences with
plants, Dr. Dwyer stated that since
1700, more than 350 botanists have
collected plants from more than 800
localities in Panama.
The dried specimens are kept in
the U.S. Army Tropic Test Center
in the Canal Zone and at the Uni-
versity of Panama.
Dr. Dwyer refers to Panama as a
biological crossroads and says that
of the more than 2,500,000 dried
specimens from all over the world
at the Garden, at least 75,000 are
from Panama.

Puentes que no

Necesitan Pintura

Los puentes de acero sin pintar
promueven la seguridad en las ca-
rreteras. Una ventaja obvia es que
resultan mds econdmicos en su man-
tenimiento, pero lo important es
que al no requerir pintura se elimi-
nan los riesgos inherentes de para-
lizar el trdnsito y construir andamios
para hacer el trabajo. El Departa-
mento de Carreteras de Michigan
tiene pensado usar acero sin pintar
en aproximadamente 200 puentes
en dos carreteras importantes del

nama. Se autoriza la reproducci6n ya

El Soplete de Oxi-Acetileno
El soplete de oxi-acetileno es una herramienta de uso muy frecuente en
la industrial modern ya quo gran nimero de operaciones lo requieren para
soldar, cortar o ambas. Tan generalizado estA su uso que con frecuencia se
olvidan los riesgos inherentes a las operaciones con sopletes y los obreros
que las realizan pasan por alto el peligro que representan las gotas de
metal fundido.
Estas gotas de metal fundido a veces se alojan en las ranuras de los
tablados, donde no hay corriente de aired que las enfrie, y pueden llegar
a fonnar unia llama que, como va ganando en intensidad muy lentamente,
no surge dc inmnediato. Generalmente, el tralajador no se da cuenta de
que se esta grstando un incendio hasta que surge la llama, ya con sufficient
fuerza para causar estragos. El mayor peligro qu e s present es que, en
muchas ocasiones, ala lama aparece cuando ya el trabajador ha abandonado
el Area y no hay nadie que pueda sofocarla a tiemnpo. Todo el problema
se basa en cl hecho de que se subestimna a combustibilidad de los materials
y no se pone cuidado en evitar que las gotas de metal fundido entren rn
contact con los mismos.
Como media de seguridad se debe contar (on 111 iextintor de incendio
en el lugar y como media preventive mantener la zona de trabajo aseada,
retirando descperdicios, accites, etc., nantcnerla en orden y cubrir con una
limina o lona incombustible los otlos articulos quea pucdan estair expuestos.
Por uiltimo, recordemos que el trabajador dcbe protegerse a; si l iisnm
usando los equipos protectors que scan necesarios.
