Holid Tr b
Canal Zone residents are asked
to package trash in boxes or bags
and tie it up firmly before placing
it in trash containers to help speed
up collection. The packaging also
will make for easier handling and
will help prevent stray animals
from scattering it about.
Packaging is particularly im-
portant during the holiday season
when gift wrappings, decorations,
boxes, and other Christmas related
materials build mountains of trash
that must be collected and disposed
Parents should keep their chil-
dren away from trash after it is
taken outside for collection. Young-
sters often dig into trash with no
thought to the unsightliness they
create and overlook safety hazards
such as broken glass, exposed nails,
and wood splinters.
The cooperation of all residents
is needed to keep the townsites
clean, especially during the holiday
season, when more trash is gen-
erated than at any other period
during the year.

The Superintendent of Schools
has invited written comments from
those who have not yet expressed
themselves on the proposed changes
in the family life education program
as presented in the elementary
Such comments are most helpful,

The use of mariJuana produces
a variety of mental and physical
effects, some of which may appear
after one or two puffs of a reefer
while the effect may last from
minutes to several hours.
The effects may be a mild eupho-
ria leading to an exaggerated
notion of, thinking more clearly,
profoundly, and creatively. It may
also produce hallucinations, pro-
nounced anxiety, paranoid reac-
tions, and transient psychoses,
Marijuana tends to lessen inhibi-
tions and creates for the user a
false reality based on his wants or
his motivations or the particular
situation in which the user finds
Considerable concern has been
ex dressed in the United States
over the possibility of personality
changes and a loss of motivation
amon youthful mari nana users
E 7 1 '
Such a reality-distorting agent
as marijuana can develop future
psychological aberrations in the
individual using it. Since normal
adolescence is a time of consider-
able psychological turmoil, the use
of marijuana frequently can pro-
duce additional turmoil.
Persistent use of such an agent
during this critical period of adoles-
cent development is likely to im-
pair the future ability of the young
person to cope with the demands
of a com lex society
Studies in the United States pur-
port to show that at least some
users present evidence of a loss
of conventional motivation. They
seem to prefer a non-goal-oriented
life style which emphasizes imme-
diate satisfactions to the exclusion
of ambition and future planning.
As an example, here in the Canal
Zone 37 of 38 adolescents admitted
to Canal Zone Mental Health Cen-
ter during the past year with a
history of smoking marijuana ex.
cessively showed an initial and
significant drop in school per-
affected showed aggressive and
destructive behavior to the point
of physical violence when under
the influence of marijuana.

As soon as these young people
gave up excessive use of marijuana'
an immediate and significant im-
provement in their school achieve
inent occurred.
Some teenagers have justified
the use of marijuana by saying it
is no worse than adult use of alco-
hol. They forget, however, that it
is not valid to justify the adoption
of a new abuse on the basis that
it is no worse than a presently
existing one. Using marijuana does
not solve our alcohol problem but
leads merely to more mart]uana
intoxicated individuals.

Earth Shine by Anne Morrow
Lindbergh is made up of two
essays, one about primitive life in
Africa and one about Cape Ken-
nedy during the astronauts' first
orbit of the moon. Her recollections
of the early days of space-rocket
research and her famous husband's
meetings with Dr. Coddard, the
rocket pioneer, are valuable history.
The contrast between the ultimate
scientific achievement of space re-
search and the account of the primi-
tive wildlife in Africa point up

The first annual "Old 299" Swim-
ming Pentathlon, to be held at the
Gamboa Swimming Pool January
10, is being sponsored by the Di-
vision of Schools and will comme-
morate the first transcontinental
crossing of the Isthmus by rail in
January of 1855.
The "Old 299" Pentathlon is de-
signed to determine the best all-
round boy and girl aquatic athletes.
The five events to be held were
selected to measure swimming
speed, endurance, stroke profi-
ciency, and diving. The events are:
100-yard freestyle sprint; 400-yard
distance swim; 200-yard individual
medley; front dive and back dive.
Eligible to compete are all full

time students of the Canal Zone's
U.S. schools who range in age
from 15 years and up. Registration
lists are at all U.S. civilian and mil-
itary pools and must be signed prior
to Wednesday, December 31.
Trophies in the form of authentic
railroad spikes, silver-plated and
engraved will be awarded to the
champion and runner-up boy and
girl. Additional awards with a rail-
road motif have been provided by
Donald R. Brayton, manager of the
Railroad Division.
An "Old 299" plaque listing the
names of the annual Pentathlon
champions will be placed on per-
manent display at the Gamboa
Swimming Pool.

Above: Navigation Division em-
ployees put an oil skimmer pump
in position in the Cristobal pier area
near the launch landing where there
is an accumulation of oil spill
brought in by currents and tides
from other areas of the bay. The oil
and water mixture is pumped into a
settling tank and the water drained
after the oil has separated and
floated to the top. The device is an
experiment in the continuing effort
to solve the oil pollution problem
in Canal waters. The skimmer is
operated by electric power. Photo
at left shows how the oil and water
mixture is pumped up the pipe in
the center of the photo and into the
tank at the left.

This "Old 299" is the last of the Canal construction-day locomotives, now
on display at the Balboa Heights station. However, this is not the same
engine which made the first transcontinental crossing of the Isthmus by
train in 1855, which is being commemorated by the first annual "Old 299"
Swimming Pentathlon.

Parece que el tipo que esti azo-
tando a Europa es el mismo que
caus6 la epidemic de influenza en
el Istmo, durant 1968-69.
En vista de que una gran parte
de los residents de la Zona del
Canal tuvo la enfermedad el afio
pasado y puede considerarse par-
cialmente immune, no se espera un
brote de importancia este afio. Es
possible, sin embargo, que puedan
presentarse en el Istmo casos de
influenza tipo B, como ocurri6 en
algunas lugares de los Estados

racla de influenza.

nas disponibles contra la influenza
para adults y nifios sanos. Se reco-
mienda, sin embargo, para perso-
nas enfermas, tales como las que
sufren del coraz6n o cle los pulmo-
nes. En estos casos, un facultative
deberA ser consulted al respect.
Para cualquier persona no inmu^
nizada, que contraiga una en erme-
dad parecida a la influenza, se re-
comienda descanso en la cama,
muchos liquidos y medicines para
bajar la fiebre, tales como aspirin.
Si la enfermedad dura mis de 3 6

debe consultarse a un medico.
