Those Noon Wednesday
Siren Checks Are Reduced
The Chief of the Canal Zone
Civil Defense has announced a
change in the weekly siren checks
on Wednesday at noon. The signal
now consists of only a 15- to 20-
second steady tone, except the first
Wednesday of every month when
the signal will be the same as in
the past, a 15- to 20-second steady
tone followed by a wavering tone
of the same duration.

Charter Flight

Departures Now

An Hour Earlier
The first Braniff International
charter flight for employees going
on home leave this year left To-
cumen at 9:40 a.m., Monday, with
165 passengers. Due to the effi-
ciency of the Motor Transportation
Division and Braniff International,
the flight was able to leave ahead
of the scheduled 10 a.m. departure
Future flights will depart at 9
a.m. and arrive in Miami at 12:30
p.m. to avoid the congestion at the
Immigration and Customs section
of the airport and to put PanCanal
flights ahead of the arrival of
approximately 12 other interna-
tional flights.
All employees are urged to use
the MTD air-conditioned buses
for transportation to the airport as
the buses will go directly to the
plane. Bus passengers will not be
required to check in at the Braniff
counter and much time can be
saved by passengers boarding the
plane directly from the buses.
Buses will leave the Cristobal
MTD shed at 7 a.m. and Ancon at
8 a.m.
Those who wish to use private
transportation to reach the airport
must check in at the Braniff counter
no later than 8 a.m., the usual
one hour before flight time, re-
quired for scheduled flights.

Expected Soon
Canal Zone health officials ad-
vise residents to begin bracing for
the annual invasion of the pesky
Aedes taeniorhynchus, the salt
marsh mosquito which can fly up
to 25 miles with a slight tailwind.
The mosquito breeds in salt
water marshes and shortly after
the rainy season starts, it can be
expected to visit all Canal Zone
townsites. The black and white
bandy legged mosquito does not
spread diseases but can inflict pain-
ful bites that raise welts.
Insecticidal fogging is increased
during this period by the Division
of Sanitation which directs its fog-
ging efforts in times of maximum
mosquito activity usually at dawn
and dusk. But this is only tenm-
porary control. The use of outside
aerosols available at retail stores
is recommended for use in patios
at night. If the mosquitos are in
great numbers, it is advisable to
retire to the inside of the house
after dusk during the invasion
period, which normally lasts for a
few weeks.
The annual invasion of Aedes
taeniorhynchus also coincides with
the renewed activity of the malaria
carrying Anopheline mosquitoes.
Protective clothing and effective
repellents are advised for those
who participate in outdoor activi-
ties, particularly hunters, fisher-
men and campers. They should
also use mosquito netting when
spending nights outdoors.

The job, designated as the proj-
ect of the month of May fbr the
Engineering and Construction Bu-
reau, is primarily the work of the
Maintenance Division with assist-
ance from the Electrical Division.
Private contractors have been en-
gaged to perform work such as tile
laying, painting and installing sus-
pended acoustical ceilings.
Contractors for the job are: H. I.
Homa Co., which is doing ceramic
tile and acoustical and vinyl tile
work and painting; Arawak, air-
conditioning ductwork; and Vent
Vue, aluminum windows and glaz-
Project Manager
Overall responsibility for the
renovation is that of the project
manager, W. C. Williford of the
Atlantic District of the Mainte-
nance Division. The project engi-
neer is Herman A. Erhart, who is
planner for the Pacific Branch of
the Maintenance Division.
Progress of the work was marked
by what Maintenance Division offi-
cials consider as outstanding co-
operation between workmen and
members of the hospital staff. Close
coordination was required so that
services provided at the hospital
could be moved from one area as
new phases of the renovation were
The hospital modernization has
provided extremely valuable expe-
rience to apprentice craftsmen such
as carpenters, plumbers, refrigera-
tion mechanics and electricians
working under the guidance and
supervision of journeymen in their
respective fields. The work has
posed almost every kind of prob-
lem a workman would encounter
in a major rehabilitation project.
Work To Be Done
Though most of the work has
been completed there are some
tasks which must be carried out
before the renovation is concluded.
This work, to be done on the third
floor by a subcontractor, includes
installation of the suspended acous-
tic ceiling, laying of vinyl tile floor-
ing, painting and putting in new
From the beginning, consider-
able time and effort went into de-
molition work, including tearing
out old wooden and masonry parti-
tions, removal of aged plumbing
and extracting wiring, conduits and
fixtures. Workmen also removed
wooden doors, windows, window
frames, floor and ceiling tiles and
original air conditioners. Most of
the demolition work took place on
the second floor which was strip-
ped down to a bare shell before
new construction work could be
Converting the hospital into a
modern facility meant a great deal
of work had to be devoted to air
conditioning. A total of five separ-
ate air-conditioning systems, com-
plete with ducts and other related
equipment have been installed in
the hospital. In keeping with the
latest building codes, some of these
systems, such as those serving
operating rooms, require 100 per-
cent new intakes of air rather than
recycled air, as used in conven-
tional systems.

adjusted since 1965, an increase of
about 100 percent now is necessary
to meet higher costs but there will
be no increase in rent on ranges.
The effective date has been set for
about October 1 to give all em-
ployees ample opportunity to pur-
chase furniture, if they wish, before
the new rental rates go into effect.
Railroad Fares
New passenger fares on the Pan-
ama Railroad will become effective
as soon as the new air-conditioned
cars are put into service. One of
the cars arrived this week but there
has been a delay in shipping of
the cars from the United States.
Plans are to have the cars in service
about July 1 and at that time, the
use of round trip tickets will be
abolished and the one-way fare in
air-conditioned coaches will be
$1.50 compared to $1.25 in the
former first class coaches. The one-

To Be Observed May 21

Cathy Plucker, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Glen Plucker,

will keep of the 12 puppies born to Dutchess, the
German Shepherd who watches over her family
lovingly. Achieving perfect parity, Dutchess produced

Persons traveling throughout the
world, especially where personal
hygiene and sanitation are poor,
frequently suffer from what is
called travelers' diarrhea.
The disease is characterized by
diarrhea, often accompanied by
vomiting, abdominal cramps, chills,
and low-grade fever. In most pa-
tients, the symptoms disappear in
1 to 3 days.
The cause of travelers' diarrhea
is still not certain. Although some-
times it is attributed to unaccus-
tomed or exotic foods and season-
ings, there is doubt that this is
true. Recent studies suggest that
certain coli bacilli may be the
cause of this disease, but further
study is necessary.
Travelers to areas where hygiene
and sanitation are poor are advised
that the best way to prevent diar-
rhea is to eat only what can be
peeled or has been cooked, and to
drink only boiled or bottled water,
beverages that have been boiled,
bottled carbonated soft drinks, beer
and wine. Tap water used for
tooth brushing and for ice in
drinks can be a source of infec-
tion. However, tap water which is
uncomfortably hot to the touch is
usually safe and may be used for
oral hygiene and for drinking after
cooling. If diarrhea does occur it
is usually short-lived. If it persists,
a physician should be consulted.
Entero-Vioform has been used
for many years to prevent travelers'

Judo Lessons Offered
For Beginners at YMCA

Mrs. Jackie Rayburn. These classes
are for girls and boys 8 to 12 years
of age.
Beginners will be taught how to
fall properly so that they will not
receive injuries in case of an un-
expected fall. They will also be
taught fundamental throws and
mat holds of Judo.

diarrhea but many tropical disease
specialists believe that it is ineffec-
tive for this purpose. Recently,
Entero-Vioform was implicated in
Japan, Australia, and Sweden as
the cause of a severe neurological
disease. So, until evidence is avail-
able to confirm or refute this, it is
best to refrain from using this drug.

The festival will include full
length features of such movie

Gov. David S. Parker presents a trophy to William D. Crabbs, boatswain
of Sea Explorer Ship No. 8. The trophy represents the youth's nomination
as a participant from the Canal Zone in the National Exploration Award
sponsored by the Union Carbide Corp. in cooperation with the Explorers
Club of New York and the Exploring Division of the Boy Scouts of Amer-
ica. The National Exploration Awards Program is designed to recognize
young adults who have achieved excellence toward career preparation
in field and exploration sciences. In addition to boating, Crabbs has par-
ticipated in the Science, Drama and French Clubs at Balboa High School

cil "Straight Scene" program to bring drug abuse information to the
elementary school pupils, and has also been active in the Boy Scout

of approximately $25,000,000 is
needed for the 22 hospitals, that
are open to children of all races
and creeds, free of charge.
The Abou Saad Temple in the
Canal Zone has helped to send 75
children to Shrine Hospitals in the
United States and Mexico in the
past 5 years. A number of these
children have returned to hospitals
several times for further treatment.
Currently, there are two local chil-
dren in the Mexico City hospital
and one child at Galveston. By the
end of this month, five more chil-
dren will be going to the Shreve-
port Hospital and one to the Gal-
veston unit. All these children are
from the Republic of Panama.

(Continued from p. 1)
Many Improvements
The hospital's big facelifting will
mean more than air conditioning,
modern plumbing, fresh paint and
more attractive appointments.
Improved lighting throughout
will be a functional improvement
while enhancing the appearance of
the building's interior. New rooms
have been constructed and others
have been modified to fit in with
the modernization plan. For exam-
ple, a new pediatrics section has
been constructed and the capabil-
ity for handling patients requiring
intensive care has been expanded.
New installations include a sys-
tem providing oxygen to be piped
to each bedside, a new nurse's call
system, a telephone connection in
every bedroom, a doctor's signal
system and fire escapes.
Details on the operation of the
renovated hospital will be an-
nounced later.

Gente en la Noticia I

No crean que la persona que apa-
rece en la fotografia es la misma de
la semana pasada. Para decir ver-
dad, tampoco son gemelos, pero si
son hermanos y sumamente pare-
cidos. El de esta semana es Rub6n
Petro, mensajero en la Divisi6n de
Navegaci6n, sector Pacifico, y el de
la semana pasada es el popular pa-
gador de la B6veda del Edificio de
Administraci6n de Balboa Heights.
Petro naci6 en Almirante, Bocas del
Toro, en 1934. Su padre, Alejan-
dro Petro, era operario de una
plant secadora de cacao de la
United Fruit Co. que estaba ins-
talada en ese gran puerto banane-
ro, que en aquel entonces tenia
gran actividad. Petro hizo su escue-
la primaria en la Escuela P6blica
de su pueblo natal y al terminar
sus studios tuvo que empezar a
ganarse la vida. Fue ayudante me-
cAnico tornero en los talleres de la
Compaiiia Frutera en Almirante,
luego se traslad6 a El Empalme,
en Changuinola, donde fue lubri-
cador en los talleres que la com-
pafiia tiene en ese lugar. A la edad
de 20 afios parti6 de Bocas del Toro
y vino a vivir en la ciudad de Pa-
nami. Dice que durante todo este
tiempo ha estado trabajando siem-
pre en la Zona del Canal con dife-
rentes contratistas, entire los que
se cuentan A. C. Sandford & Co.,
Southern Heat and Pump Co. y
John W. Bell, asi que en su actual
trabajo se encuentra como en su
casa, pues esti muy familiarizado
con el irea. Hace 7 afios Rub6n
Petro contrajo matrimonio con la
Sra. Velodia Marriatt de Petro, ori-
ginal de Puerto Armuelles, con la
que reside en un apartamento en la
Via FernAndez de C6rdoba, Pue-
blo Nuevo, barrio de la ciudad de

tarA abierto a la participaci6n de

AdemAs, declar6 un vocero de
los organizadores que tambi6n po-
dran participar aquellas personas
que tengan una residencia do no
menos de 5 afios en Panamat o cn
]a Zona del Canal.
Por otra part, el vocero so refi-
ri6 al reglamento del Concurso que

nart la exhibici6n de las obras so-
metidas a concurso seri el profc-
sionalismo de su ejecuci6n. El cri-
terio en cuanto a la admisi6n de las
obras sert atribuci6n exclusive del
jirado de admisi6n.
Una de las reglas mas importan-
tes del Concurso Xerox 1972 es

dos de la localidad, que comprue-
ben que no participan en el Con-

elements de juicio para emitir su
opinion cuando se den los resulta-
dos de este concurso que afio tras

Aire Abajo

Conservar aire mientras se venti-
la una mina grande puede ser bas-
tante dificil.
M4uchas veces se cierran minas
abandonadas y otras parties inacti-
vas con barreras de madera o lona.
Pero una mina de potasa en Carls-
bad, New Mexico, EE. UU., que
tiene 1.760 kil6metros de t6nel a
ventilar, emplea latex de Neoprene
que se pone con pistola.
El fabricante dice que se solidi-
fiea y forma una barrera de aire que
no so inflama y es impenetrable.
Quicn lo aplique no necesita un
respirator especial.

Existe Peligro en el

Monoxido de Carbono
Los investigadores en la Escuela
de Miedicina Marquette en Mil-
waukee, EE. UU., han descubierto
que las personas expuestas por va-
rias horas a concentraciones muy in-
tensas de mon6xido de carbon no
se encuentran en condiciones de
conducir en trAnsito muy congestio-
nado o con neblina muy espesa, pue-
den resultar con dolores de cabeza,
una phrdida de destreza manual y
tardan mais en reaccionar a un es-
timulo. "El mon6xido de carbon
aumenta a concentraciones peligro-
sas en la sangre generalmente sin
ninguna advertencia", dijo el Dr.
Richard Stewart, jefe del departa-
mento de medicine ambiental de la
escuela, quien se ha encargado de
mn studio prolongado del mon6xi-
do de carbon. "A un nivel, hemos
descubierto un cambio en el patron
de las ondas cerebrales aun cuando
la persona no tiene idea de que se
esti envenenando".

Los funcionarios de salubridad
de la Zona del Canal estin comen-
zando sus preparativos para en-
frentarse a la invasion annual del
molesto Aedes taeniorhyncus, el
mosquito de las marismas que
puede volar hasta 25 millas con un
ligero viento de cola.
Este mosquito se cria en las ma-
rismas poco despu6s que se inicia
la temporada de las lluvias y pue-
de esperarse que haga su aparici6n
en las poblaciones de la Zona del
Canal. Dicho mosquito, de patas
blanquinegras, no es portador de
enfermedades pero causa dolorosas
picaduras que produce ronchas.
Durante este period la Divisi6n
de Sanidad aumenta su aspersi6n
de neblina insecticide, actividad
que se intensifica en las horas en
que los mosquitos se muestran mais
agresivos, que es por lo com6n al
amanecer y a la caida del sol. Pero
este es s6lo un control de caricter



Las personas que'viajan por todo
el mundo, especialmente en donde
la higiene personal y la sanidad
son pobres, sufren frecuentemente
de lo que se conoce como diarrea
del viajero. La enfermedad se ca-
racteriza por la diarrea, a menudo
acompafiada por v6mitos, calam-
bres abdominales, escalofrios v fie-
bres bajas. En la mayoria de los
pacientes, los sintomas desapare-
cen en 1 a 3 dias.
La causa de la diarrea de los
viajeros no ha sido determinada
todavia. Aunque algunas veces es
atribuida a los alimentos ex6ticos
o a los que uno no estA acostum-
brado, lo mismo que su saz6n,
existen dudas de que esto sea cier-
to. Estudios recientes sugieren que
cierto colibacilo puede ser la causa

de aerosoles que se consiguen en

cantidades se recomienda perma-

del atardecer durante el period de

unas cuantas semanas.
La invasion annual del Aedes

A los viajeros que van a las areas
en donde la higiene y la sanidad
son pobres, se les advierte que la
mejor manera de prevenir la dia-
rrea es comer s61o lo que puede
ser mondado o ha sido cocinado,
y beber solamente agua hervida o
embotellada, bebidas que han sido
hervidas, bebidas refrescantes car-
bonatadas embotelladas, cerveza y
vino. Agua corriente usada para
cepillarse los dientes y para el hielo
en las bebidas pueden ser fuente
de infecci6n. Sin embargo, el agua
corriente que se sienta sumamente
caliente al tacto es por lo general
segura y puede ser usada para hi-
giene oral y para beberla despuhs
de ser enfriada. Si la diarrea ocu-

durante muchos afios para preve-

para este prop6sito. Ademas, re-
cientemente, Entero-Vioform fue
implicado en Jap6n, Australia v
Suecia como la causa de una seve-
