Gas Prices


On May 1
A 2-cent increase in the retail
price of gasoline in the Canal Zone
and the construction of 10 new
3-bedroom apartments were among
the topics discussed at the execu-
tive session of the U.S. Civic Coun-
cils held recently at Balboa Heights
and presided over by Gov. David
S. Parker.
The meeting was attended by
F. R. Johnson, Assistant Chief of
the Executive Planning Staff, and
Clarence C. Payne, Youth Advisor
to the Governor.
Governor Parker told the Civic
Council representatives that the
cost of motor gasoline to the Com-
pany had increased gradually since
the last price adjustment in Novem-
ber 1967 and it is now about 2
cents a gallon higher. The price of
gasoline is being raised from 27
cents to 29 cents a gallon for reg-
ular gasoline and from 30 cents to
32 cents for premium, effective
May 1.
There was some discussion as to
whether the price of gasoline here
should be geared to the New Or-
leans price as are the prices set on
many items sold in the Panama
Canal retail stores. The Governor
said there is some thinking that the
sales taxes charged in New Orleans
should be included in the pricing
policy. He said profits on the sale
of gasoline covered only a part of
the increased costs of employee
services in the Canal Zone.

Optical Shop Inventory
Both the Balboa and Cristobal Op-
tical Retail Units will be closed be-
ginning at 12 noon on Thursday,
March 30, for formal inventory.

"Mame," based on the brilliant
musical comedy "Auntie Mame"
that has entertained thousands on
Broadway and London, has been
selected as the 1972 summer Canal
Zone United Fund production to
open July 14 for a 2-week run.
"Mame" will be directed by Don
Lohse, well known in Canal Zone
theater circles and soon to be ap-
pearing in Surfside Theatre's "Last
of the Red Hot Lovers." Bruce
Quinn, who has produced outstand-
ing United Fund shows over the
past several years, will be produc-
ing-director, and Carlos Williams,
also well known in local dramatic
arts, will be coproducer.
"Maune" is the story of a hap-
py, well-to-do, wild-spirited, New
Yorker living it up at the peak of
the Twenties whose life is changed
by a "wonderful present," an or-
phan nephew named Patrick. The
10-year-old boy needs his aunt and
Maine likes the idea though it
brings conflict with her bosom
friend Vera Charles, who can't
stand children. The man Mame is
about to marry is perfectly willing
to take on the boy but Mame does
not think she will have time for
marriage. She will be too busy
being a mother!

Balboa High

"Beggar On

"Beggar On Horseback," a satire
on our modern way of life, will be
produced at Balboa High School
on April 5, 6, 7 and 8.
The play, by Kaufman and Con-
nelly, is a comedy-fantasy written
for the 1920's. But it's message, is
just as applicable today as it was
The main theme is the problem
of the artist in a money orientated
society. How can a poor artist
spend the time necessary to devel-
oping his talent and manage to
earn a living at the same time? In
past centuries the government or
private patrons subsidized him. But
in today's society, where success is
measured by how much money is
being earned, the young artist has
very few choices between abandon-
ing his art or starving. In "Beggar
On Horseback," Neil tries another
solution: marriage to a rich woman,
only to find he is giving up his last
chance to create.
Kaufman and Connelly do not
stop with satirizing the artist and
his problems but lash out, with
hilarious results, at practically
every established institution in our

using the plastic graphotype embosser plate to imprint identifying data
on "strip off" stickers affixed on medical record locator cards. Formerly,
the information was typed on the cards. A new card was prepared each
time a change of identifying data occurred. First year's savings are esti-

Although the capital program

next year. The four at Margarita

In the discussion of losses on

could be obtained at little cost and
shown during weekends and vaca-

There was a long discussion of
youth activities on both sides of
the Isthmus and the council mem-
bers are of the opinion that the
Gap Youth Center on the Pacific
side has proved to be a successful
operation. The Barn on the At-
lantic side has not been successful
due to lack of support by the
youth of the community.

Over-the-counter drugs, furni-
ture polishes and other items used
for household cleaning now are
coming in containers that are some-
what different than in the past.
In some instances the container
will simply have a different type
of cap. In other cases there may be
a difference in the way the product
is packaged. For example, there
may be a change in the opening
which controls the amount of liquid
that comes out at one time.
The new packages are the result
of the Poison Prevention Packag-
ing Act which Congress enacted
last year. This law was designed to
protect children from accidentally
ingesting toxic substances by re-
quiring safety closures and other
safety packaging.
These safety containers help to
provide protection but safe storage
is still important. Children, because
of their agility and ingenuity, will
investigate several different ways
to open a container. If their fingers
won't work, their teeth might.

matter it would be impossible to

Stars To Play in

C.Z., R. of P.
"The Queen and Her Maids," a
four-girl softball team and one of
the most unusual sporting attrac-
tions today, will appear in Panama
next month with shows at the Olym-
pic Stadium in Panama City and at
the Balboa Stadium.
The five-times Junior World
Champion four-girl team will be at
Olympic Stadium on Thursday and
Friday, April 6 and 7 and at Bal-
boa Stadium on Saturday, April 8.
Games will start at 7 p.m. with a
preliminary contest.
In their presentation on the 6th,
the girls will meet with a Panama
women's team and in the second
contest they will play with a men's
team. In Balboa Stadium, they will
play a men's team composed of the
best softball players in the Canal
Zone and Panama.
Rosie Beaird, the Queen, is billed
as the world's greatest female pitch-
ing artist who struck out 3 out of 4
of the New York Mets. She adds to
the game by throwing the ball com-
pletely blindfolded, from second
base, from a kneeling position,
between her legs, and behind her.
She will offer $5 to volunteer bat-
ters form the audience who are
brave enough to try to hit one out
of three pitches.
Star attraction Rosie is 19, honey-
blonde and very attractive and
pitches a softball about as fast as
a speeding bullet.
"The Queen and Her Maids" is
a female version of Eddie Feigner's,
"King and His Court" barnstormers.
They recently appeared on coast-
to-coast TV programs.
In Panama the price of admis-
sion ranges from $1.50 to 25 cents
for children and in Balboa it is
$1.50 for adults and 75 cents for
children. Tickets will be available
at the gymn office at Balboa High
School from Monday through Fri-
day and on Monday March 27
and Monday, April 3, they will be
sold at the cafeteria in the Admin-
istration Building.



prevent all children from opening,
the law requires the packages be
difficult for children under 5 years
of age to obtain a toxic amount
within a reasonable time.
This does not mean that all such
children would be unable to open
or otherwise obtain a toxic amount.
Keeping this in mind, residents
are reminded:
-to keep out of reach of young-
sters all household products and
medicines, which should be locked
up when not in use. When they are
in use, they should never be out of
sight of adults.
-items should be kept in their
original containers, never in cups
or soft drink bottles.
-all products should be properly
labeled and the labels read before
-the light should always be on
when giving medicines.
-avoid taking medicines in front
of children, since youngsters tend
to imitate adults.
-refer to medicines as medicines
-not candy.
-clean out the medicine cabinet

tenares de metros mis lejos". Es
una enamorada del sector donde
reside, que es el mas antiguo de la
mencionada barriada. Dice que
cada rinc6n del irea cercana a la
pequeiia iglesia del sector, rodea-

rar la propia personalidad. Pero
Gisela harA un viaje en fecha que

venes de los paises donde dicho

que aprendi6 much, especialnen-
te con las preguntas que los nifios
le hacian, pues tenia que consultar
libros y a los sacerdotes para poder
contestarlas. Todas sus aficiones se
relacionan con las bellas artes y la
cultural. Se le pregunta por sus im-
presiones acerca del actual trabajo
v dice ri'pidamente: "Estoy encan-

tada. Aqui todos me ayudan a de-
sempefiar mis deberes. Son unas
personas magnificas y me siento
feliz. Hasta el problema del trans-
porte me lo han resuelto mis com-
pafieros de trabajo".

Equipo que Jugara Aqui

"La Reina y sus Doncellas" se preparan para actuar Royal Beaird sirve de maestro de ceremonies del
ante un numeroso piblico en una de sus numerosas espectaculo. EstAn las cuatro integrantes del equipo,
giras por los Estados Unidos, mientras el entrenador ademAs de la jugadora suplente que las acompafia.

Dentro de poco cuando ousted
compare medicines y otros produc-
tos que se usan en el hogar para la
limpieza, se encontrara con que
vienen en recipients diferentes a
los que hemos estado acostumbra-
dos a ver. En unos casos la inica
diferencia sera una tapa diferente,
pero en otras hasta sera diferente
la manera en que el product est6
envasado. Por ejemplo, podrA ha-
ber una diferencia en la abertura
que restringira la salida del liqui-
do en cada servida. Esta nueva cla-
se de envases es el resultado de lo
ordenado por la Ley de Envases
para Evitar Envenenamientos (Ley
Pilblica 91-601) de Estados Unidos
aprobada por el Congreso y que
entr6 en vigor el afio pasado. El
concept bAsico de esta ley es hacer
que los nifios no ingieran substan-
cias t6xicas accidentalmente, me-
diante el uso de tapas de seguri-
dad y otros m6todos para envasar-
las seguramente.
Puesto que los envases de segu-
ridad s61o constituyen una carac-
teristica adicional para la protec-
ci6n, el que se guard dichos pro-
ductos en lugar seguro es elemen-
to que contintia siendo important.
Los nifios, debido a su agilidad,
curiosidad e ingeniosidad, siempre
investigan las diferentes mancras
en que se puede abrir un recipien-
te. Si no lo consiguen con las ma-
nos o los dedos, acudirAn a los
dientes. Reconociendo bajo el pun-
to de vista prActico que es impo-
sible manufacturer un envase, o
una tapadera impossible de abrir
para todos los nifios, en todas las
circunstancias, dicha ley require
que los envases hagan dificil a los
nifios de menos de 5 aiios el poder
obtener una cantidad t6xica dentro
de cierto tiempo razonable. Esto
no significa que son todos los nifios
los qiue no podran abrir el reci-
piente y obtener una cantidad t6xi-
ca ldl product. Por ejemplo, la
mencionada ley ordena que las as-
pirinas sean envasadas en reci-
pientes especiales, que hicieron di-
ficil el abrirlos al 80 por ciento de
los nifios que fueron puestos a
prueba. Por lo tanto, es concehible
que 2 de cada 10 nifios puedan
abrir el recipient. Para salvaguar-
dar tambi~en a esos dos, deben ob-
servarse continuamente vigilancia y
medidas estrictas para evitar los en-
venenamientos. Por lo tanto, siem-
pre deberemos recorder:
Mantener todos los product's
de limpieza del hogar y las medi-
cinas lejos del alccance de los ni-
fios, preferiblemente bajo Hlave,
,uando no se est6n usando. Cian-
do sc vayan a usar dichos produc-
tos y nedicinas, deber:in estar
siempro a la vista de los adults.
Ias imedicinas deberain gllardr- -

se en sitio diferente al de los pro-
ductos de uso en el hogar.
Dichos products y medicines
deberAn conservarse en sus enva-
ses originals, nunca en tazas o en
botellas de refrescos.
Todos los products deberAn
tener su etiqueta apropiada, que
debera leerse siempre antes de
Tener la luz prendida al tomar o
dar las medicines.
Debemos evitar tomar una me-
dicina frente a los nifios, puesto
que ellos tienen la tendencia de
imitar a los adults.
Debemos referirnos a las medi-
cinas como lo que son, no llamarlas
pastillas o dulces.
El botiquin debe asearse peri6-

Clase de 1937

Celebrara su

La clase de 1937 de la Escuela
Secundaria de Balboa, esta pla-
neando su 35a Reuni6n de Aniver-
sario de la Clase.
EstA sefialada tentativamente
para el 6 de mayo en la Sala de
Banquetes del Club de la Legi6n
Americana. Muchos recordarin el
edificio como el lugar de los agra-
dables bailes escolares a fines de la
decada de 1930.
Para mayor informaci6n hay que
llamar a Winter Collins al 52-3329,
Frances Sharp al 52-6164 o Judith
Herrera al 64-5225. De 152 gra-
duados, mas de 50 han indicado su
interns en concurrir, incluyendo
algunos de los Estados Unidos y

Un espectAculo nunca visto en
el Istmo es el que presentarin el
mes pr6ximo "La Reina y sus Don-
cellas", un equipo de softball fe-
menino de s6lo cuatro integrantes,
que ha ganado en cinco ocasiones
el Campeonato Mundial Juvenil.
Este equipo femenino se presen-
tarA en el Estadio Olimpico "Juan
Dem6stenes Arosemena" de la ciu-
dad de Panama, el jueves 6 y el
viernes 7 de abril pr6ximo, y el
sabado 8 del mismo mes en el Es-
tadio de Balboa. Todos los juegos
comenzaran a las 7 p.m. con un
partido preliminary.
Las j6venes estadounidenses se
presentarin primero frente a un
combinado femenino panamefio y
en su segunda presentaci6n lo ha-
rAn ante un equipo masculine. En
Balboa jugaran contra otro equipo
masculine, integrado por los me-
jores jugadores de softball de la
Zona del Canal y de Panama.
Rosie Beaird es la "Reina" del
equipo y gran artist de los lanza-
mientos, pues en una ocasi6n pon-
ch6 a 3 de 4 bateadores de los
Mets de Nueva York siendo ellos
Ed Kranepool, Art Shansky y Jerry
Koosman. El lnico que pudo ba-
tearle fue Ron Swoboda. Todo ello
ocurri6 en el Show de Dick Cavett
en Nueva York. Le da mas interns
al juego lanzando la bola comple-
tamente vendada desde. segunda
base, por entire las piernas y de es-
paldas. Ademais ofrecerA $5 a los
bateadores voluntarios de entire la
concurrencia que tengan el valor
suficiente de tratar de batearle uno
de tres lanzamientos v puedan co-
nectarle alguno.
Rosie tiene 19 afios de edad, es
rubia v muv atractiva; lanza la
bola en forma rapidisima. Sus com-
paileras de equipo ooupan las po-
siciones de receptora, en la prime-
ra base y en el campo corto, y con
ello han vencido a muchos equi-

La mayoria de las empresas industrials se preocupan verdaderamente
por el bienestar fisico de sus trabajadores. A fin de evitar que sufran acci-
dentes toman todas las medidas posibles. Una de estas medidas, por cierto
muy generalizada, es la de colocar letreros. Estos varian en tamafio, presen-
taci6n y contenido, pero la gran mayoria sirven para indicar condiciones,
dar instnrcciones o prohibiciones.
Desgraciadaniente algmos series humans poseen un gran espiritu de
contradicci6n y es suificiente que se les prohiba hacer algo para que insistan
en haccrlo. Posiblementc, de no haber existido la prohibici6n, no se les
hubicse ocurrido.
Ia desobediencia ha sido la causa de muchos accidents que pudieron
haberse evitado con un poco de cooperaci6n. Uno de los mis frecuentes
soi los incendios que se produce al desobedecer los letreros de Prohibido
Fumar. Este vicio estA tan arraigado que hay cierta gente que no puede
esperar hasta que se present la oportunidad propicia para hacerlo, poniendo
en esta forma cn peligro no solo su vida sino la de los que le rodean y
tambien las propiedades materials.
iConoce ousted a alguien que act6c en esta forma? No pierda tiempo y en
ouanto se present la oportunidad dele una leeei6n al respect.
