Selective Service Youth

Advisory Group Appointed

As part of President Nixon's Pro-
gram to bring youth into more res-
ponsible participation in the opera-
tion of the Government, 12 young
men have been named to the new
Canal Zone Youth Advisory Com-
mittee for Selective Service.
The new group, the second such
committee appointed in the Canal
Zone, will serve to establish lines of
communication between the young
men who have a fundamental inter-
est in the draft and those in Govern-
ment who have a hand in shaping
the laws and policies of the Selec-
tive Service System.
The Canal Zone group joins 55
other youth Advisory Committees
which sent representatives to Wash-
ington, D.C., to meet with the
National Director of Selective Serv-
ice twice last year, the first year of
the committees' operation.
Members of the Youth Advisory
Committee will consider the poli-
cies, operations, and problems of
the Selective Service System, mak-
ing recommendations for changes
and other matters. Members will
have the opportunity to learn the
laws relating to the draft and the
rules under which it operates. Fur-
ther, they will observe actual meet-
ing of the local boards and the
appeal board.
The Canal Zone committee is com-
posed of: Edward Wood, Jr., Albert
S. Jenkins, Jonathan M. Fisher, Gil-
bert E. Freund, Steven D. Clark,
Rudolph L. Crespo, Jr., Thomas G.
Kredell, Harold W. Harp, Robert
R. Phillips, Gerard P. Lavecchia,
Michael E. Dexter, and John D.
The appointments of the 12 will
extend to September 30, 1971. The

Actress and former Canal Zone
resident Pat Quinn, who made her
feature film bow as Alice in "Alice's
Restaurant," will play the lead fem-
inine role opposite Gregory Peck in
"Shootout," a Hal Wallis production
for Universal International Films,
She will play the part of a widow
who drinks to relieve her loneliness
on a remote western ranch.

new members replaced the first
year's committee whose members
were cited for their valuable service
to the system. The new group
already has met with Ronald L.
Seeley, Director of Selective Service
for the Canal Zone, and the chair-
men of the two Canal Zone Local
Boards and the Appeal Board. At
this meeting members of the com-
mittee were given an orientation on
the functions of their group. Gov-
ernor Leber spoke briefly to the
group after presenting an appoint-
ment certificate to each member.
Election of officers will be held
at a meeting in January.
Seeley designated Richard D.
Morgan, Deputy Director of Selec-
tive Service for the Canal Zone, as
Youth Advisory Coordinator.

Capt. Robert J. Norman, USN,
former commanding officer of Rod-
man Naval Station, has been named
chief of the Marine Bureau's Navi-
gation Division, effective Decem-
ber 16.
A 33-year veteran of the Navy,
Captain Norman first came to the
Canal Zone in 1951 as commanding
officer of the U.S.S. Recovery
ARS43. In 1962, he returned to the
Canal Zone as plans officer for the
U.S. Southern Command and re-
mained in that post until June

James L. Rinehart, shift engineer at the Miraflores Generating Station, is con-
gratulated and presented a Special Act Award by Lt. Gov. R. S. Hartline
for saving the life of an employee of a contractor. The injured man, Javier
Zambrano, grounded a % inch cable that he was straightening against the
44 kv. power line while working on the addition to the Miraflores Power
Plant. He was knocked unconscious and stopped breathing. Rinehart imme-
diately administered mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and assisted the man in
breathing until the Fire Department arrived and started using their resus-
citation equipment. Rinehart was commended for having the knowledge
of first aid and the presence of mind to put the knowledge to work when
it was needed. His timely action saved Zambrano's life. The award was;
accompanied by a check for $500. Rinehart was assisted by Carlos A. Beech,
helper machinist in the Electrical Division, who also received an award.

Water Seepage Causes

Trailer Safety Hazard

A Canal Zone resident who owns
a pickup truck-camper combina-
tion recently made a frightening
discovery about his camper and
relayed the information to the
Safety Branch.
SPILLWAY nOW passes it along to
alert others who own similar equip-
ment to a potentially dangerous con-
dition that can develop in their
Three years after buying the cam-
per, the owner detected a grow-
ing musty odor in it. Searching for
the cause, he removed bunks, ceil-
ing, and wall panels, and found that
many of the structural wood mem-
bers of the camper were badly
rotted due to water entering through
small undetected leaks in the roof
and around some of the holddown
devices. The leaks were caused a
year earlier when the roof of the
camper collided lightly with a low
concrete overhead in a service sta-
tion damaging the roof and straining
the body holddown fastenings.
This condition could have led to
a serious accident if the camper had
pulled loose while the truck was on
the road, particularly if his family
had been in the camper at the time.
Wood rot can also result in this
climate from condensation in un-
ventilated spaces in campers be-
tween the outer metal skin and in-
terior paneling. In campers where
holddown devices depend largely
on internal wood structural mem-
bers for anchorage, it is recom-
mended that those areas be opened
up from the inside if possible and
inspected for ro at regular inter-
While water staining of interior
surfaces as well as a musty odor
may provide clues to hidden rot
taking place, such signs should not
be relied upon entirely as indicators
of rot.

Where steel structural members
are used to anchor holddown de-
vices to the camper body, neglected
leaks and condensation can result in
their rusting. If uncorrected, this
can lead to the pulling out of the
holdown devices. While in these
cases inspection need not be as fre-
quent as with wood members, it
should be done at regular intervals.
In every case, owners of these
vehicles should look for leaks after
any damage to the sides and roof
of campers and take prompt care of

Buy Safe

Toys for

Toys are big business for chil-
dren. They serve an important pur-
pose in a child's mental, physical,
and social development. The fol-
lowing suggestions help in choosing
tovs that are safe and suitable for
each child's age.
Under 2 years. The "hand to
mouth" age. Children like to look
and listen. Give small soft, wash-
able dolls and animals, bathtub toys,
rattles, blocks, musical toys, and
simple push or pull toys. Avoid toys
with sharp edges or toys that will
break easily; toys with removable
parts that might be easily swal-
lowed; flammable toys.
Between 2 and 4 years. The
"explorative age." Children are
beginning to find out what they can
do; they like to explore and want
toys they can manipulate them-
selves. Give stuffed or wooden ani-
mals, colored picture books, kiddie
cars, peg boards, simple toys that
do things; doll carriages and toy
housekeeping equipment for girls;
cars and wagons to push around.
Avoid toys with sharp edges, flam-
mable toys, electrical toys; toys too
heavy for child's strength; poorly

Around the world in an 1891 gaff
rigged topsail yawl.
This is the ambition of a group of
adventurous youngsters from Mich-
igan who arrived at the Cristobal
Yacht Club early in December.
Part of their mis;sion-the part
between New York and Panama-
has been accomplished. But it took
a little longer than they expected
because of the unusually rough
weather encountered in the Carib-
bean. They said after arrival here
that they had spent considerable

Handling the sails on a gaff
rigged topsail yawl is a complicated
job in itself without having to take
into consideration winds of near
gale force.
Eric Salsburg, a lake sailor from
Michigan, organized the 'round the
world adventure and acquired the
old sailing craft in Detroit. He said
that he and his wife had organized
the group into a travelers club
which took over ownership of the
venerable Katherine II. Others on
the voyage are Larry Weigle, a
nephew of William Weigle, of Mar-
Salsburg and his friends are the
sixth owners of the Katherine II.
According to records, she was built
in Boston in 1891 as a racing yacht.
Later she was converted to cruising
use and, when purchased in Detroit,
was being used as a charter boat.
Considerable work was done to
fit her out for the long ocean voyage
but Salsburg says the craft's hull is
a sturdy combination of oak and
longleaf pine and is basically sound.
The Katherine II began the globe
circling journey in November 1969
when she departed from Detroit.

For the Christmas Concert the
Choral Workshop will present two
major works from the Romantic and
Baroque periods.
The "Christmas Oratorio" was
written by Camille Saint-Saens, who
is best known for two orchestral
works, "Danse Macabre" and "Car-
nival of the Animals." The oratorio
is more reserved but retains the
beautiful melodies and rich harmon-
ic texture which are characteristics
of Saint-Saens' style.
The "Christmas Story" is a unique
work from the pen of Heinrich
Schutz, who was one of the most
famous composers of the Baroque
period. This, one of his last works,
is marked by the disciplined simplic-
ity and transparency which are signs
of the mature artist.
All are cordially invited to attend
this Christmas Concert in the Col-
lege Auditorium on Tuesday even-
ing at 8 p.m.
Also at Canal Zone College at
10:30 a.m., December 22, the 79th
Army Band, under the direction of
CWO Donald Flewell, will present

from various parts of the world,
sung in the language of the land of
origin, will highlight the Christmas
music program being planned for
the night of December 22 in the
Cristobal Junior and Senior High
School Auditorium beginning at
7:30 p.m.
The carols will be sung by mem-
bers of the Cristobal High School

Christmas songs from Spain, France,
Germany, and England.

Political Activity

Regulation Is Noted

1971 Holidays

Are Corrected
In the December 11 issue of the
SPILLWAY it was reported that Lin-
coln's Birthday on February 12 was
a legal holiday. However, it is not
a holiday for Government employees
in the Canal Zone.
The article did not list Good Fri-
day, which is a holiday. The follow-
ing is the correct number and dates
of legal holidays to be observed in
the Canal Zone during 1971.
New Year's Day, Friday, Jan-
uary 1.
Washington's Birthday, Monday,
February 15.
Good Friday, April 9.
Memorial Day, Monday, May 31.
Independence Day (4th of July),
holiday on Monday, July 5.
Labor Day, Monday, Septem-
ber 6.
Columbus Day, Monday, Octo-
ber 11.
Veterans Day, Monday, Octo-
ber 25.
Panamanian Independence Day,
Wednesday, November 3.
Thanksgiving Day, Thursday,
November 25.
Christmas Day, holiday on Fri-
day, December 24.
And, because New Year's Day
1972 falls on a Saturday, U.S. Gov-
ernment Agencies in the Canal Zone
will treat the preceding Friday,
December 31, as a holiday.
The SPILLWAY regrets the error.

Safe Toys
(Continued from p. 3)
made toys which may come apart or
break; marbles and beads.
Between 4 and 6 years. The be-
ginning of "creative age." Children
want to be with other children,
like group games, and enjoy being
outdoors. They imitate and try to
make things and do things for them-
selves. Give crayons and coloring
books, modeling clay, blunt scissors,
story books, doctor and nurse kits,
simple games, pedal cars; dolls, doll
houses and furniture and house-
keeping toys for girls; model vehi-
cles, simple construction sets and
small sports equipment for boys.
Avoid darts and shooting toys that
may endanger the eyes; poorly
balanced mobile toys, such as tri-
cycles; flammable toys or costumes.
Between 6 and 8 years. Beginning
of the "dexterity age." Children are
becoming self-reliant, they like to
feel they are on their own, and
want to be with other children. Give
story books, games, puzzles, craft
and hobby sets; roller skates; house-
keeping, cooking and sewing sets
for girls; construction sets, electric
trains and toys, when used under
adult supervision, and light tools for
boys. Avoid toys with points or
sharp edges, mechanical toys with
exposed gears and shooting toys.
Between 8 and 10 years. Chil-
dren are beginning to develop spe-
cial skills and interests and playtime
is devoted largely to these interests.
Give books, games, puppets, bi-
cycles, sports equipment, hobby and
craft kits, phonographs and records;
musical instruments. Avoid tools or
equipment or hobby sets that may
be dangerous unless the child is
supervised when he uses them.
Over 10 years. Children are
growing up, they like to make things
that are worth while, and to take
part in group activities. As they
continue to develop, individual pre-
ferences become more apparent.
Sports, hobbies, boy and girl club
activities become increasingly im-
portant and should be taken into
consideration when selecting gifts.
Both sexes like books, games, crafts
and hobbies. Continue to use care
in giving equipment or tools of any
kind that might be harmful if used
without supervision.

All Canal employees are re-
minded of the regulation governing
their participation in Panamanian
political activities.
The regulation is 35 CFR (Code
of Federal Regulations) 255.735-41

ical Activities" and reads:

other relationships between the

Si Tiene Casa Rodante

Mirese en Este Espejo

Un resident de la Zona del Canal
que tiene una combinaci6n de ca-
mioncito y casa de campafia ro-
dante, hizo recientemente un des-
cubrimiento aterrador sobre su casa
de campafia rodante y pas6 la in-
formacion a la Oficina de Seguri-
El SPILLWAY la pasa ahora a us-
tedes, especialmente para los que
tienen equipo similar para que est6n
alertas sobre un peligro potential
que puede surgir en sus casas de
campafia rodantes.
Despu6s de 3 afios de tener la
casa rodante, el hombre detect un
creciente hedor a moho. Buscando
la causa, movi6 las literas, cielo raso
y los entrepafios de las paredes, y
encontr6 que much de la madera
en la estructura de la casa de cam-
pafia estaba podrida debido a que
el agua le caia por unas goteras no
descubiertas en el techo y alrede-
dor de los afianzadores. Las goteras
fueron causadas hace 1 afio cuando
el techo de la casa rodante choc6 li-
geramente con una saliente de con-
creto en una estaci6n de servicio,
dafiando el techo y deformando los
seguros de los afianzadores.
Esto pudo haber provocado un
serio accident si la casa de campa-
fia rodante se hubiese soltado mien-
tras el cami6n estaba en la carre-
tera, particularmente si su familiar
hubiese estado en la casa rodante
para entonces.

La madera podrida puede tam-
bi6n resultar en este clima por la
condensaci6n en los espacios sin
ventilaci6n en las casas rodantes
entire cl forro exterior de metal y
los entrepafios interiors. En las
casas rodantes en donde los afian-
zadores dependent principalmente
de madera structural internal para
su anclaje, se recomienda que esas
areas sean abiertas dcsde adentro
si es possible e inspeccionar durante
intervalos regulars para ver si hay
Mientras las manchas de agua en
las superficies del interior lo mismo
que el olor a moho pueden dar in-
dicios de que hay podredumbre es-
condida, no debe conflarse entera-
mente de que tales seiiales indican
si hay o no la podredumbre.
Cuando se usan piezas de metal
en la estructura para los afianzado-
res en la casa de campafia rodante,
las goteras por descuido y la con-
densaci6n pueden Ilevar a enmo-
hecerlo, lo cual, si no es corregido
puede llevar finalmente a la salida
de los afianzadores. Mientras la ins-
pecci6n no es tan necesaria en estos
casos como lo debe ser frecuente
con las piezas de madera, tambi6n
deberia hacerse a intervalos regula-
En cada caso, verifique si hay go-
teras despuIs de cualquier datio por
los lados y en el techo de las casas
de campafia rodantes v arreglelas



En esta forma puede quedar el piso de su casa de campafia rodante si no
revisa a tiempo las goteras para que el agua que se cuela por ellas no pudra
la madera del piso. Asi encontr6 la suya un resident de la Zona del Canal.

Hay que Escoger Juguetes

Seguros Para
Los juguetes son algo muy. grande
para los niios. Sirven un pr6posito
important en el desarrollo mental,
fisico y social del nifio. Las siguien-
tes sugerencias ayudarin a escoger
juguetes seguros y adecuados para
cada edad del nifio.
Menores de 2 Afios: La edad de
"la mano a la boca". A los nifios les
gusta mirar y escuchar. D6nles mu-
fiecas y animals lavables, pequefias
y suaves, juguetes de bafieras, mara-
cas, bloques, juguetes musicales y
juguetes simples de botones o de
halar. Evite los juguetes con filos
cortantes o juguetes que se rompan
ficilmente; juguetes con parties re-
movibles que puedan tragarse fAcil-
mente; y juguetes inflatables.
Entre 2 y 4 Afios: La "edad ex-
ploradora". Los nifios comienzan a
descubrir lo que pueden hacer; les
gusta explorer y quieren juguetes
que puedan manipular ellos mismos.
Denles animals rellenos o de ma-
dera, libros con fotografias en colo-
res, carritos, tableros colgantes, ju-
guetes simples que hagan cosas,
cochecitos de muiecas y juguetes
de cocina para las nifias; autos y
vagones que se empujan por toda
la casa. Evite los juguetes con filos
cortantes, juguetes inflamables, ju-
guetes el6ctricos, juguetes nmmy
pesados para la fortaleza del nifio,
juguetes hechos tan pobremente
que puedan romperse; bolitas y
rosarios de cuentas.
Entre 4 y 6 Afios: El comienzo de
la "edad creadora". Los nifios dcscan
star con otros ninos, como en los
juegos colectivos, y les gusta star
al aire libre. Imitan y tratan de cons-
truir cosas y hacer cosas para ellos
mismos. D6nles creyones y libros
para colorear, arcilla para modelar,
tijeras romas, libros de cuentos, jue-
gos de doctors y enfermeras, jue-
gos sencillos, carritos de pedal, mu-
fiecas, casitas de muiiecas y juegos
de construcci6n y equipos pequefios
deportivos para los nuchachos.
Evite flechas y juguetes de tiro que
puedan poner en peligro los ojos;
juguetes m6viles pobremente ba-
lanceados, tales como velocipedos;
juguetes o vestidos inflamables.
Entre 6 y 8 Afios: Comienza la
"edad de la destreza". Los niiios
comienzan a sentir confianza en si
mismo, les gusta sentir que pueden
bastarse a si mismo, y desean estar
con otros nifios. D6nles libros de
cuentos, juegos, rompecabezas, jue-
gos de habilidades y pasatiempos;
patines; juegos de casa, cocina y
mAquinas de coser para las nifias;
juegos de construcci6n trenes elic-

los Niiios
tricos y juguetes, cuando son' usa-
dos bajo la supervision de adults,
y herramientas livianas para los
muchachos. Evite juguetes con pun-
tas o filos cortantes, juguetes meea-
nicos con engranajes expuestos y
juguetes de tiro.
Entre los 8 y 10 Afios: Los ninos
comienzan a desarrollar habilidades
e interests especiales y el tiempo de
juego es dedicado mayormente a
esos intereses. Denles libros, juegos,
titeres, bicicletas, equipo deportivo,
juegos de pasatiempos y artes, fon6-
grafos y discos; instruments musi-
cales. Eviten herramientas o equipo,
o juegos de pasatiempos que puedan
ser peligrosos a menos que el nieo
sea supervisado cuando los usa.
Mas de 10 Afios: Los nifios estan
creciendo y les gusta hacer cosas
tque valgan la pena, y tomar part
en actividades de grupos. Al con-
tinuar desarrollBndose, las prefe-
rencias individuals se hacen mAs
aparentes. Deportes, pasatiempos,
actividades de clubes para j6venes
de ambos sexos se hacen much mis
importantes y deben ser tornados en
consideraci6n cuando se seleccionan
los regalos. A ambos sexos les gus-
tan los libros, juegos, artes y pasa-
tiempos. Continmien teniendo cuida-
do al darles equipo o herramientas
de cualquier clase que puedan ser
dafiinos debido al uso sin supervi-

nia; el Colegio Naval de Guerra en
Newport, Rhode Island, y el Colegio

Fuerza Aerea Maxwell. Tambi6n
fue miembro del estado mayor del
Colegio Naval de Guerra durante
2 afios.
El CapitAn Norman esta casado
con Agnes Stum, de Martinburg,
Virginia Occidental, y tienen cuatro
hijos: el Teniente Robert James, Jr.,
graduado en 1965 en la Academia
Naval, ahora prestando servicio a
bordo del U.S.S. Cochrane; Gary

Kurt Dexter, estudiante en West
Point; y Kim Dee, quien reside con
sus padres.
El jefe anterior de la Divisi6n de

Riesgos al Manejar
Excesivamente Fatisado
Apartes de la carta enviada desde
el hospital por un conductor a sus
compafieros de trabajo: ". . Me iba
quedando dormido en plena carre-
tcra cuando descubri, con horror,
que habia perdido el control del
auto y que no tenia puesto el c.ntu-
r6n de seguridad. Al parar abrupta-
mente rompi el parabrisas con la ca-
beza y me di un violent golpe en
el pecho con el volante .... La cara
me qued6 Ilena de cortaduras y el
labio superior se me desgarr6 de
arriba abajo. Estuve 2 semanas en
el hospital y perdi 38 dias de traba-
jo. Los danios sufridos por el auto
pasaron varias veces los miles de
pesos. Amigos, reconozcan los peli-
gros de la fatiga antes de que tengan
un accident parecido al mio . .
o peor".

iManeje con cuidado!

dCuidese de los demas

y cuide a los demas!

Alrededor del mundo en una
goleta del afio 1891.
Esta es la ambici6n de un grupo
de j6venes aventureros de Michigan
que Ilegaron al Club de Yates de
Crist6bal a principios de diciembre.
Parte de su misi6n-la parte en-
tre Nueva York y Panama-ha sido
cumplida. Pero les tom6 un poco
mis de lo que esperaban porque en-
contraron un inesperado mar picado
en el Caribe. Dijeron despu6s de
llegar aqui que pasaron bastante
tiempo rondando alrededor de las
islas y evitando el alta mar.
Manejar las velas en una goleta

Salsburg y sus amigos son los sex-
tos duefios del velero Katherine II.

construido en Boston en 1891 como
un yate de regatas. Mas tarde fue
convertido para el uso de cruceros
y, cuando fue comprado en Detroit,
estaba usAndose como embarcaci6n
Trabajo considerable fue hecho
para que pudiera hacer el largo
viaje por el oc6ano, pero Salsburg
dice que el casco de la embarcaci6n
es una fuerte combinaci6n de roble
y largas planchas de pino y es bAsi-
camente firme.
El Katherine II comenz6 su jor-
nada alrededor del mundo en no-
viembre de 1969 cuando parti6 de

6Qu6 haria usted, si...?

1. Se levanta el cap6 estando el auto en movimiento.
Mire por el espejo retrovisor el trAfico detrAs de usted, frene lentamente y
ac6rquese al borde del camino. Entonces, baje la ventanilla y mire hacia de-
lante. Si puede salirse de la carretera, hagalo para bajar el cap6 sin tener que
2. Se incendia el motor.
Cierre el encendido y salgase del camino. Use un extinguidor, manta de lana,
arena o tierra para apagar las llamas.
3. No puede controlar la direcci6n.
Cambie la direcci6n a neutral y frene lentamente hasta que el auto se de-
tenga en una line recta. Apague el motor. Ya parade el autom6vil, patee las
ruedas delanteras hasta que formen cierto Angulo. Sslbase al autom6vil y arran-
que dirigi6ndolo lentamente fuera del camino.
4. El pedal de freno no funciona al bajar por un camino montafioso.
Salgase del camino y espere unos quince a veinte minutes a que se enfrien
los frenos. Entonces, dirijase a la estaci6n de servicio mis pr6xima para que
le examine los frenos.
5. Se traba el acelerador.
Apague el motor, frene o cambie la direcci6n a neutral. En los autom6viles
que tienen direcci6n hidrAulica, el cambio serA dificil con el motor apagado y
se necesitari much fuerza y control para mantener el auto en el camino, pero
esto es mejor que dejar el auto en su carrera vertiginosa.
Si se cambia a neutral, el motor seguira funcionando, pero no se preocupe
porque la potencia quedarA neutralizada; es decir, el auto no rodara; el cigiie-
fial girarA sin mover los engranajes de transmisi6n y eje propulsor *
