Is Needed by

Postal Workers
In an effort to avoid congestion of
Christmas mail at the post offices,
the Canal Zone Postal Service re-
quests that between now and Christ-
mas, postal patrons check their post
offices boxes as cften as possible for
notice of receipt of parcels.
If notice is received, patrons are
requested to take immediate deliv-
ery of the parcels and not leave the
parcels in the post office until
Christmas Eve.
There are five ships tentatively
scheduled for arrival in the Canal
Zone before December 25, which
will probably bring many thousands
of Christmas parcels.
The Postal Service employees are
doing their utmost, with overtime
if necessary, to have this anticipated
mail ready for delivery as soon as
possible after its receipt at the post
offices. The cooperation of postal
patrons through their taking imme-
diate delivery of parcels, will be a
great help to postal personnel in
their effort to deliver all mail re-
ceived by Christmas Eve.

5-Cent Stamps

Going Up to 6
To conform to U.S. Postal Service
regulations, the Drop Letter rate of
postage of 5-cent per ounce will be
abolished in the Canal Zone effec-
tive January 1, 1971.
Drop letters are those mailed at a
main post office, its branches or
units addressed for delivery at that

Gorgas Doctor Certified

By U.S. Medical Board

Dr. Roberto Ocafia, a member of
the staff of the Obstetrics and Gyn-
ecology Service of Gorgas Hospital,
has become a certified Diplomate of
the American Board of Obstetrics
and Gynecology. He is the first
alumnus of the Medical School of
the University of Panama to attain
this high distinction and the third
Panamanian physician on the staff
of the Canal Zone hospitals to be
recognized nationally in the United
States as a specialist in his field of
Certification by the American
Eoard followed the successful cul-
mination of board examinations
which consisted of both written and
oral testing that covered all phases
of obstetrics and gynecology, related
specialities, and basic science. As
part of the oral examination held in
Chicago, Ill., Dr. Ocana was re-
quired to submit a list of patients
treated by him during the period of
1 year. Three examiners of high
professional status questioned him
on pathology, aspects pertaining to
the various cases he presented, and
on medicine in general.
Dr. Ocafia was born in Chiriqui
Province and received his early
education in Jesuit schools in Pan-
ama. In 1958, he received a bach-
elor of science degree from the Uni-
versity of Maryland, College Park,
Md., with majors in zoology and
chemistry. He received his medical
degree from the University of Pan-
ama Medical School in 1962,

Dr. Roberto Ocaiia

In accordance with Panama law,
Dr. Ocafia served a 2-year intern-
sh;p, from 1962 to 1964, at Santo
TomAis Hospital and the hospital at
Penonon6. From 1964 to 1967, he
served his residency in obstetrics
and gynecology at Corgas Hospital
under the guidance of Dr. Jack
Strumpf and Dr. Alv'n Sholk. He
was in private practice in Panama
and served as assistant professor in
obstetrics and gynecology at the
Medical School from 1967 until
1968 when he returned to Gorgas as
a member of the staff.
Dr. Ocafia, who also is a con-
sultant at the Social Security Hos-
pital in Panama City, has done post
graduate work at the Harvard Med-

Splash goes the champagne as Mrs. W. P. Leber christens the Canal's
newest tug, "Mehaffey," at a ceremony in Cristobal recently. Smiling his
approval, and holding an umbrella, is Aain Seligman, president of Southern
Shipbuilding Co., builders of the tug.

Another New Tug

Added to PC Fleet

Another new tugboat, named for
former Canal Zone Gov. Joseph
C. Mehaffey, joined the Canal's At-
lantic side fleet last week after
being christened by Mrs. W. P.
The Governor's wife broke a
bottle of champagne over the stern
bit of the new vessel to highlight a
formal ceremony marking the tug's
arrival from Slidell, La., where it
was constructed by the Southern
Shipbuilding Co.
Present at the ceremony held at
the Industrial Division at Mount
Hope were Governor Leber, Lt.
Gov. and Mrs. R. S. Hartline, South-
ern Shipbuilding Co. president Alain
Seligman, Marine Director Capt.
Robert 0. Mink, and other Canal
The principal speaker was Gov-
ernor Leber who discussed many of
the Canal's key improvement proj-
ects, including the acquisition of
new and better tugboats. Captain
Mink spoke on the accomplishments
of fonner Governor Mehaffey, who
served as Governor of the Canal
Zone from 1944 to 1948.
The Mehafey is a duplicate of
the tug Chester Harding which
arrived here the past October from
Louisiana, where it also was built by
the Southern Shipbuilding Co.
Both are 96 footers powered by
two 1,500-hp. engines and the latest
solid state technology.
Both have full monitoring safety
watch and control Tugmonitor sys-
tems. The latter electronically scans

engines, generator sets and aux-
iliares. Indicators, alarms, and con-
trols are located in the pilothouse,
placing complete remote control of
the engineroom at the instant com-
mand of the pilot.
The Mehaffey has been assigned
to the Cristobal Port Captain's office
as will the Jay J. Morrow, another
new tug, scheduled to be delivered
to the Canal in January.
The addition of the Morrow will
mean the Canal's entire five-tug At-
lantic fleet will be composed of the
new, modern type of vessel.

Select Those

Christmas Toys

With Caution

While Christmas shopping for
toys parents are reminded to be
careful in selecting playthings that
are not potentially dangerous for
their children.
The construction of toys should
be inspected to make sure they will
stand some pretty rough treatment.
Children delight in taking things
apart or breaking them open. Result-
ing sharp edges and small pieces
can be dangerous.
Parents should realize that elec-
tric toys present shock hazards, that
play irons and stoves do heat up
and children should be taught to
respect these playthings.
According to the Red C:oss Safety
Program Director, parental guid-
ance is an important factor in pre-
venting accidents. "The toy should
be within the child's ability to oper-
ate and enjoy, and the child should
be taught how to operate it in a safe
manner and in a safe place. Com-
mon sense is the best preventative,"
noted the director.

Think for yourself.
That's a good adage.

The manager and members of the
Cristobal Gun Club were instru-
mental in improving an old build-
ing to provide food services for their
members and guests. The improve-
ments included new and approved
equipment as well as a modern
renovation of the kitchen for the
promotion and maintenance of a
high level of food sanitation. The
improved food establishment and
the use of recommended techniques
in food handling will be an example
of high sanitation standards neces-
sary to assure the prevention of
food-borne disease and the con-
tinuance of good health within the
Canal Zone.
Annual food sanitation awards are
initiated by the Division of Sanita-
tion. Monthly inspections are made
to make sure adequate food stand-
ards are routinely maintained as a
public health measure for the pro-
tection of the consumer. Colonel
Green pointed out that food can
easily be contaminated and co-
operative working relationships must
continue between the Health Bu-
reau and the food establishments to
assure the maintenance of high

Through the joint efforts of per-
sonnel from the Navigation Division
and the Marine Director's Office, a
job-oriented review program has
been developed for deckhand boat-
swains assigned to the Harbor-
master sections.
The 8-hour program, which is
designed to review both operational
and safety procedures, was initiated
this week at the Corozo Street
Training Center for personnel from
the Pacific side, and at the Catun
Locks Conference Room for per-
sonnel from the Atlantic side.
The training has been scheduled
so it will not interfere with normal
Canal transits and includes discus-
sions in the following major areas:
preparation for transit, embarking
and disembarking procedures, pilot-
boatswain coordination, deck in-
spections, check of operating ma-
chinery, personnel assignments, ope-
ration plans for securing and releas-
ing ships before and after lockages,
accidents and investigations, and
completion of ship safety reports.
About 120 boatswains and assist-
ant boatswains will participate in
the above sessions, which are sched-
uled to end January 12.
Instructors in the program are
Capt. Hank Johnstone, pilot; Ro-
berto Mitchell and David Taylor,
safety and training boatswains; J. C.
Dyer and George J. Booth, bureau
safety officers; and John E. Strat-
mann, staff assistant for personnel
programs. Also collaborating in this
training effort will be Robert Krue-
ger and Peter Porello from the
Safety Branch, and Rolando Linares
from the Locks Division.


Smokers trying to kick the habit
have tried everything from chewing
on a dummy plastic cigarette to
sucking on a bullet.
Smokers have had themselves
analyzed, hypnotized, and mesmer-
ized so they won't light another
"coffin nail." But how many ex-
smokers know what's ahead when
they stop?
Withdrawal symptoms may ap-
pear in some instances where imagi-
nary pains present themselves. Also
since the taste buds are back in
business, the ex-smoker may find
himself eating more, the Health In-
surance Institute reports.
Most compulsive smokers-two-
to-three pack-a-day types, smoked
due to nervousness. These people
still need to chew on something or
keep their hands busy.
When that chewing item is candy,
gum, or nuts there may be a weight
gain. And since the majority of
smokers dropped the habit for
health reasons, it would hardly be
wise to put on weight, which is just
another health hazard.
Diet experts suggest keeping
bowls of low-calorie foods such as
carrots, celery, radishes, and green
peppers in the refrigerator to an-
swer cravings at home. During
working hours, dietetic gum or loz-
enges might solve the problem.
One ingenious public relations
director at a Hartford, Conn., uni-
versity solved his cigarette craving
by carrying around cinnamon balls,

heat" to make you think you're still

Cristobal Nurses Aids

To Take Xmas to Village

Members of the Nurses Aid Club
of the Cristobal Junior Senior High
School are making sure that the
children in the little Gatun Lake
village of Lagarterita will have a
Merry Christmas this year by hold-
ing a party tomorrow.
About 60 members of the club
have volunteered to obtain all that
will make a Christmas party swing
for the 60 or more children regis-
tered in the school at Lagarterita.
Each girl has taken the name of a
child and has gathered clothing,
toys, and other items suitable for his
or her age group.
In addition, the members of the
club solicited gifts of used clothing
and canned goods and cash which
is being used to purchase ice cream
and candy. Each child in the village
will receive a gift addressed to him
and will later participate in Christ-
mas games and refreshments.
Accompanied by Santa Claus, the
girls will take off from the Gatun
dock the morning of December 12
and will travel to the village in a
police launch and two boats loaned
by the U.S. Army. The trip up the
lake and back to Gatun will take
most of the day.
Mrs. Telma Howard, who is a
Spanish teacher in the Cristobal
High School, is the sponsor of the
Nurses Aid Club. She came to the
Canal Zone from New York and has
been with the Schools Division for
2 years.

giene necesarias para asegurar la
prevenci6n de enfermedades provo-
cadas por alimentos v la continua-

Los arbolitos de Navidad pueden
ser naturales o artificiales. Uno de los
peligros mayors del primero es el de
incendio. Pero este riesgo puede redu-
cirse. Debe tratarse de conseguir un
arbolito fresco, lo mas fresco possible.
Se lo debe mantener en agua, tanto
antes como despues de decorarlo, y
colocarlo lejos de cualquier fuente de
Los arbolitos artificiales presentan
menos riesgo de incendios que los na-
turales. La mayoria de los plAsticos de
que estAn fabricados no arden con fa-
cilidad y no son conductors de elec-
tricidad. Los Arboles de metal, a pesar
de ser a prueba de incendios, tienen
el peligro potential de choque si se
usan luces el6ctricas sobre el mismo
'irlbol. Para no correr riesgos innecesa-
iios seria convenient iluminarlos con
reflectores desde lejos.

Pero Ilegamos a un peligro al que
no escapa ninguno de los tres men-
cionados y es la colocacion de los ador-

cambio la caja que acabamos de deso-

Los fumadores que tratan de
abandonar el vicio han tratado de
todo, desde masticar un cigarrillo

una bala.
Los fumadores han hecho que los
analicen, hipnoticen y magneticen
para que no enciendan otro ciga-
rrillo. iPero cuintos fumadores sa-
ben lo que viene cuando paran?
Los sintomas de retirada pueden
aparecer en algunos casos cuando
se presentan dolores iraginarios.
Tambi6n desde que han vuelto las
papilas del gusto, el ex fumador
puede encontrarse comiendo mas,

ro de Salud.
Los fumadores mis compulsivos-
los que fuman de dos a tres paque-
tes diarios-fuman debido a nervio-
sidad. Estas personas necesitan to-
davia masticar algo o mantener sus
manos ocupadas.
Cuando el objeto de masticar es
dulce, goma o nueces, puede haber
aumento de peso. Y desde que la
mayoria de los fumadores abando-
naron el hibito por razones de sa-
lud, no seria prudent aumentar de
peso, que es otro peligro para la
