Larry Jenrich

Of Accounting

Retires to N.Y.
Lawrence L. Jenrich, who has
been Assistant Comptroller-Ac-
counting for the Panama Canal
organization for the past 4 years,
is retiring from service and will
make his home in Richfield Springs,
N.Y.
Born in Milwaukee, Jenrich holds
a degree in accounting from the

where he was Deputy Regional
Director.
Jenrich joined the Canal organiza-
tion in 1956 as Supervisory Auditor

then became Chief of the Internal
Audit Branch and General Auditor.
He was Chief Accountant until
he became Assistant Comptroller-
Accounting 4 years ago.
He has taken an active interest

president of the local chapter of
the Federal Government Account-
ants Association and of the Panama

E&C Project of Month

Retaining Wall To Halt Erosion


At Base of Diesel
Work was nearing completion
this week by the Atlantic Main-
tenance Division forces on con-
struction of a retaining wall and a
stabilizing system designed by
Panama Canal engineers to prevent
further erosion around the base of
a 54,000 gallon marine diesel stor-
age tank in Cristobal. Completion
of the job was designated as the
project of the month for the Engi-
neering and Construction Bureau.
Tank' 64, part of the marine
bunkering system in Cristobal, is
located on a hill in the Mount
Hope tank farm. It was constructed
in 1921 and during the years, the
heavy Atlantic side rains have
eroded the ground around the base
of the tank.
Fearing that the tank would col-
lapse unless measures were taken,
the Canal engineers designed an
intricate system of perforated
drainage pipe laid in the ground
at the bottom of the hill, a retain-
ing wall and a drainage ditch to
divert water from the base of the
tank.


Storage Tank
The Maintenance Division then
joined the project and started work
May 28 by bringing in 3,920 cubic
yards of crushed coral and coarse
rock. They used about 100 cubic
yards of large rock for the con-
struction of the retaining wall, re-
located 140 feet of ditch and in-
stalled six drain pipes.
The Maintenance Division's part
of the project has been under the
supervision of E. M. Kennedy,
Chief of the Atlantic Maintenance
Branch and Robert Harrington,
foreman.

Open House Today
Aboard Navy LST
Open house is being held today
aboard the U.S. Navy LST Spar-
tanburg County moored at the U.S.
Naval Support Activity at Rodman.
The Spartanburg County fea-
tures a clipper bow and "over the
bow" ramp, a helicopter flight deck
and stern gate.
Open house hours are from 8
a.m. to noon and from 1 to 4 p.m.


Last Shops Moving

From Service Center
Effective with the close of busi-
ness tomorrow (July 28), the Balboa
barber and beauty shops located in
the Balboa Service Center will be
closed.
Both shops will be relocated in
air-conditioned facilities on the
second floor of building 722 on El
Prado, directly adjacent to the
Balboa Post Office.
It is expected that the barber-
shop will be reopened on Wednes-
day, August 1, and the beauty shop
reopening is set for Monday, Au-
gust 6. There will be no change in
hours of operation at either shop.
These moves complete the phase-
out of all services at the Balboa
Service Center, which is soon to be
demolished for construction of a
new Pacific side Central Cafeteria
on that site.
The present building has been a
landmark in Balboa since the con-
struction of the town after the
Canal was opened to world
shipping. It was originally built in
1907 in the construction townsite
at Empire but' was moved to its
present location in 1914 and opened
for business on Christmas Eve.

Aerial Spraying, Inoculation, Help Prevent Horse Encephalitis


Three laboratory-confirmed cases
of Eastern equine encephalitis in
horses have been reported in the
Republic of Panama during the
month of July. The disease was
identified by the Middle America
Research Unit of Gorgas Memorial
Institute which is located in Ancon.
Eastern equine encephalitis has
not been detected on the Isthmus
of Panama since 1962. The cases
reported in July were located in
the vicinity of Chepo, Pacora and
Chilibre.
EEE is a viral disease which
affects the central nervous systems
of horses and man. The reservoir
of the virus is primarily in birds
and lower mammals and it is trans-
mitted to man and horses from
these reservoirs by the bites of
mosquitoes.
The mortality rate in clinically


recognized cases in horses may
range as high as 90 percent. In man
the rate ranges from 5 percent to
60 percent.
There is no specific treatment
for EEE in horses or man. Preven-
tion of the disease in horses can
be effectively accomplished with
the use of vaccines. In man, pre-
vention rests with the control of
mosquitoes.
While only three cases of EEE
have been confirmed in horses by
the isolation of the virus, it has
been determined by measuring
antibody levels in a significant
number of other horses that the
disease has probably been present
in certain areas of Panama for some
weeks and has been unnoticed. No
cases of EEE have been reported
recently in man on the Isthmus of
Panama.


The Canal Zone Health Bureau,
the Armed Services of the Canal
Zone, Gorgas Memorial Institute,
and the Government of Panama are
cooperating in a control program
which includes ground and aerial
spraying of large areas of the Canal
Zone and Republic to suppress the
breeding of mosquitoes. Vaccine
with which to immunize horses
stabled at riding clubs in the Canal
Zone arrived on the Isthmus on
July 19 and inoculation of these
animals began on Monday, July 23.
Col. William A. Boyson, Health
Director, suggests that all Canal
Zone residents avoid the areas of
Chepo, Pacora and Chilibre and
that they stay indoors whenever
possible during morning and even-
ing when mosquitoes are most
prevalent.

THE PANAMA CANAL SPILLWAY


July 27, 1973


(Schedule subject to change without notice)


The large number of cases of
typhoid fever reported recently in
Mexico serves to reemphasize
Health Bureau advice to persons
planning travel to areas of the
world where typhoid is prevalent.
The traveler's first line of de-
fense is care in his choice of food
and beverages. The safest foods
are those that are cooked and
served hot whereas salads, raw
vegetables and unpeeled fruits
should be avoided. Commercially
bottled or canned mineral water
and bottled or canned beverages
are generally safe. Ideally, tap
water should not be consumed un-
less first boiled or treated with
chemical purifiers such as Globa-
line, Halazone, or hypochlorite-
containing bleach. Water which is
uncomfortably hot to touch may
also be safe for drinking after it
has cooled. Ice should be avoided.
Eating places with substandard
hygienic conditions should not be
patronized.
These precautions are equally
applicable to the prevention of
other infections, such as non-
typhoid salmonellosis, shigellosis,
amebiasis, and infectious hepatitis,
to which international travelers
may be exposed.
Typhoid vaccine can provide
additional protection against con-
tracting typhoid fever. However,


Health Bureau director Col. William A. Boyson (in Mrs. Kathleen Nelson (on Colonel Boyson's right),
front wearing coat) recently presented certificates of Chief of Nursing Service at the center; Mrs. Jackye
completion to 31 nursing assistants who completed a June, training nurse (on his left) and Dr. L. Dennis
training course at the Canal Zone Mental Health Cen- Weldon, Acting Director of the center (wearing
ter at Corozal. Also shown with the graduates are: glasses).


Draft Ended,

But You Must

Still Register

Young men must still register
with Selective Service at the time
of their 18th birthday even though
there is no draft, Ronald L. Seeley,
Canal Zone Director of Selective
Service, has announced.
U.S.-citizen males who have not
registered are urged to do so
promptly. "Failure to register is a
violation of the law," Seeley em-
phasized, "and could result in pro-
secution by the Department of
Justice."
The President's authority to in-
duct men into the service expired
on July 1. The Administration does
not plan to seek an extension of
this authority, and the Defense
Department is relying on volunteer
enlistments to supply military man-
power. Only induction authority
over those not previously deferred
expired on July 1. All other pro-
visions of the Military Selective
Service Act remain in force. The
annual lottery will be held. Young
men must continue to register and
their local boards will classify them
as to their availability for possible
military service should Congress
authorize the resumption of induc-
tions in the event of a national
emergency.
The law requires that all male
U.S. citizens must register with
Selective Service within the 60-day
period commencing 30 days prior
to their 18th birthday. Young
men who are residents of the
Canal Zone can register at the
Selective Service office located on
the second floor of the Diablo
Service Center (telephone 52-3547).
On the Atlantic side, registration
can be accomplished at the office
of F. J. Wainio, Terminal Build-
ing, Cristobal (telephone 43-1665).
U.S.-citizen residents of the Re-
public of Panama should register
at the Consular Section of the U.S.
Embassy. Young men actually have
three legal obligations: (1) they
must register at age 18, (2) they
must notify their local Selective
Service boards when they change
addresses, and (3) they must carry
their draft cards with them until
their liability expires, which for
most men today is at age 26.


the vaccine is only partially effec-
tive and is in no way a substitute
for careful attention in the selec-
tion of safe food and drink. Pro-
phylactic drugs are of question-
able value and may even be
harmful.
Residents and travelers to Cen-
tral and South America are advised
to pay particular attention to
having up-to-date immunization
for yellow fever. A single injection
provides immunity against the
disease for 10 years. Although ur-
ban yellow fever in man has not
been reported in the Canal Zone
since 1905, cases of yellow fever in
monkeys in Darien Province have
been reported.
For necessary immunizations for
the protection of health, eli-
gible persons either residing here
or planning vacation trips to foreign
lands should go to the nearest
neighborhood Community Health
Center. Immunizations are given
free of charge. The hours of opera-
tion of each Community Health
Center are printed in Section VI
pages 13 and 15 of the November
1972 copy of the Panama Canal
Company Telephone Directory.

5,000 in 11 Years


Retiring Mast


Top Number
An alltime record for Canal
transits since 1962 is claimed by
Capt. George Murphy Hayes,
skipper of the little tanker Gulf Rey
that chugs its way back and forth
through the Canal on an average
of five times a week.

The current need to find solutions
to longstanding problems relating
to the role of women in Govern-
ment and in the community is re-
ceiving the attention of the nine-
member Women's Advisory Coun-
cil to the Governor.
A member of the council who
is happy to participate in resolving
these problems is Melba A. Raven,
secretary to the Panama Canal In-
formation Officer, who like most
women, considers action on these
matters long overdue.
A Panamanian, Miss Raven was
born in Puerto Armuelles in Chi-
riqui Province. She was graduated
from St. Mary's Academy in Colon
and studied business administra-
tion at Panama University.
Prior to joining the Information
Office as a Canal Zone Guide in
1965, Miss Raven was employed at
the Upjohn Pharmaceutical Co. in
the Colon Free Zone and the Pa-
cific Steamship Navigation Co. at
Cristobal. While working for the
Canal organization, she has studied
English at Florida State University
Canal Zone Branch and Canal
Zone College and French at the
Alliance Frangaise in Panama City.
Miss Raven returned recently from
France where she attended the
Alliance Frangaise in Paris for 1
month as part of a scholarship
awarded to her by the Alliance in
Panama. While in Europe she also
traveled in Spain and Italy.
Miss Raven also has traveled ex-
tensively in Latin America and the
United States, where on her first
trip years ago she was part of a
small group that represented Pan-
ama Girl Scouts at Houston and
Oklahoma City as guests of the
Girl Scouts Association of the
United States.
In addition to traveling, which
she considers highly educational,
Miss Raven regards oil painting as
her favorite current hobby. She has
studied with Mrs. Yolanda Bech,
well-known Isthmian artist. Among
her other activities and interests
are: reading, music, interior decor-
ating and fencing.


er Claims


of Transits
at the end of this month, figured
that he had made approximately
5,000 transits in that 11-yr period,
which is more than most Panama
Canal pilots can claim and cer-
tainly more than most ship captains
after a lifetime of service.
Starting his non-stop shuttles
through the Canal on the Gulfoba,
which is now transiting under the
name of Don Fred, Captain Hayes
shifted to the Gulf Rey when she
was put in operation 21/2 years ago.
On some trips, the Gulf Rey
takes on a load of fuel oil at the

The Gamboa Golf and Country
Club has been an institution to res-
idents of Gamboa for the past 35
years.
Built by community residents,
including the late John G. Clay-
bourn, Superintendent of the
Dredging Division, who pounded
nails along with his neighbors, the
clubhouse was remodeled from the
former Gamboa Police Station at
an approximate cost of $3,500 paid
from the club's funds. The late
A. C. (Gus) Medinger, who was
assistant to Claybourn, was in di-
rect charge of the golf course,
which started out with four holes
and grew to nine.
According to a newspaper ac-
count of the formal opening in Oc-
tober 1938, the affair was con-
ducted with pomp and pageantry
with the general public invited to
attend. Smoot and Beeson, popular
automobile dealers in Panama
those days, furnished all the food
and other refreshments which con-
sisted of Panama beer and cold cuts
by Paul Keiner. Smoot and Beeson
also gave the 570 or more guests a
thrill by furnishing free rides from
the main road to the new clubhouse
in a new 1939 Buick.

country club brought a modern

principalmente ha sabido ganarse

respeto de sus superiores por su

y su magnifico desempefio en las
tareas que le han sido encomen-

En 1967 se le otorg6 el Premio

dado por Exploradores M6dicos
Voluntarios y tambi6n cuenta con
todo el apoyo de la Asociaci6n An-
ticardiaca de la Zona del Canal. El
Director de Salubridad destac6 la
importancia que tiene el detectar y
tratar la alta presi6n de la sangre,
sefialando al mismo tiempo que, en
la mayoria de los casos, se cuenta
con los medios necesarios para
curarla.

La detecci6n de tres casos de
encefalitis equina del este, todos
en caballos, ha sido comunicada a
la Repuiblica de Panama por el
Institute de Investigaci6n de la
Am6rica Central (MARU), una de-
pendencia del Instituto Conmemo-
rativo Gorgas, luego de realizadas
las pruebas de laboratorio perti-
nentes.
Desde 1962 no se habia compro-
bado caso alguno de encefalitis
equina en el Istmo. Los casos com-
probados durante el present mes
de julio correspondent a las locali-
dades de Chepo, Pacora y Chilibre.
La enfermedad, del tipo viral,
afecta el sistema nervioso central
de los equinos y el hombre. Los
portadores del virus son en primera
instancia las aves y los mamiferos
inferiores, de los que es transmitido
a los equinos y al hombre a trav6s
de las picadas de mosquitos.
La tasa de mortalidad clinica-
mente establecida en los caballos
es hasta el 90 por ciento. En el
human varia del 5 al 60 por
ciento.
No existe tratamiento especifico
para la encefalitis equina del este
en los caballos o el hombre. Se
puede prevenir efectivamente la
enfermedad en los caballos me-
diante la administraci6n de vacu-
nas. En el hombre la prevenci6n
depend del control de los mos-
quitos.
Mientras solo tres casos de en-
cefalitis han sido confirmados en
caballos mediante el aislamiento
del virus, se ha establecido que la


enfermedad ha estado present
desde hace varias semanas en algu-
nas regions de Panama, pero ha
pasado desapercibida. Esta conclu-
si6n se debe a los resultados que

de un tanque de dep6sito de com-
bustible diesel marino, de 54.000
galones de capacidad, en el Area
de Crist6bal. La terminaci6n de
dicho trabajo fue adoptada como
proyecto del mes de la Direcci6n
de Ingenieria y Construcci6n.
El Tanque 64, part integrante
del sistema de aprovisionamiento
de combustible maritime de Cris-
t6bal, esta situado en una colina
dentro del area de los tanques de
dep6sito de combustibles. Fue
construido en 1921 y con el pasar
de los afios, las fuertes lluvias del
sector AtlAntico ha erosionado el
terreno situado alrededor de la
base del tanque.
Preocupados por la posibilidad
de que el tanque se derrumbara,
a no ser que se tomaran medidas
para impedirlo, los ingenieros del
Canal de Panama disefiaron un in-
trincado sistema de drenaje a base
de tubos de barro cocido, en la
base de la colina; de un muro de
retenci6n y de una zanja de drena-
je, que desvie el agua de la base
del tanque.
Fue entonces que la Divisi6n de
Mantenimiento entr6 a tomar parte
en el provecto y comenz6 a traba-
jar cl 28 de mayo, transportando
al lugar 3.920 yards c6bicas de
coral triturado y de roca. La Divi-
si6n de Mantenimiento utilize alre-
dedor de 100 vardas cfibicas de
rocas grades para la construcci6n

La part que le ha tocado Ilevar
a cabo a la Divisi6n de Manteni-
micnto en dicho proyecto, ha tsta-
do bajo la supervision de Edward
W. Kennedy, Jefe del Ramo Atlin-
tico de Mantenimiento v de Robert
Harrington, capataz.

Recorrer una extensa Area en el
sector de Gat6n para llevar a tra-

de controlar la poblaci6n de los
mosquitos, algunas de cuyas espe-
cies son transmisores de terrible
enfermedades, constitute la prin-
cipal de las funciones de Silvestre
Labastide, un antiguo empleado de
la empresa del Canal. Labastide
ingres6 al Canal en 1958, traba-
jando con la Divisi6n de Sanidad
en su base de Gamboa, que sirve
al Area Sur. Se ha mantenido du-
rante los 15 afios que Ileva labo-
rando con la empresa del Canal en
la misma unidad, asignado a la mis-
ma zona. Como operario de lan-
cha a motor le corresponde llevar
al personal de Sanidad encargado
de irrigar con insecticides las la-
gunas y otras Areas en donde haya
mosquitos o les sea fAcil reprodu-
cirse, asi como al que rocia las casas
de residents en las regions pobla-
das que rodean el Chagres y el Lago
Gatin y al que toma muestras de
sangre para ser analizadas en el la-
boratorio. En esta misi6n le corres-
ponde recorrer las Areas de Gigante,
Gigantito, Rio Paja y Cafiita, al
oeste del Lago Gatin, y las de El
Faro y Daridn, al este. Son Areas de
muy dificil acceso, incluso mediante
la lancha a motor que, en no pocas
ocasiones ha "encallado" sobre
troncos y otros obsticulos en su re-
corrido. En una ocasi6n, relata La-
bastide, "me toc6 encontrar a un
agricultor del Area desmayado so-


concesionarios agricolas del Canal,
y otros detalles han contribuido a
hacer de esta faena algo interesan-
te y agradable para Labastide. En
su trabajo ha tropezado con lagar-
tos y otra clase de animals pro-
pios de la region, pero nunca le
ban causado dificultades. Antes de
ingresar a la empresa del Canal
trabaj6 intermitentemente con el
Ej6rcito desde 1941, hasta sumar
poco mis de 5 afios de servicios.
Labastide es un gran aficionado al
beisbol y al boxeo, asi como a la
m6sica y al bailey. Vive con su es-
posa Lilia Alvarado de Labastide
y various de sus siete hijos en Pan
de AzAcar, Panama. Alli cultiva
algunos products agricolas para
su propio consume y el de su fami-
lia. Pero la gran ambici6n de La-
bastide, quien disfruta como todo
buen abuelo de las travesuras de
sus siete nietos, es tener alg6n dia
una cria de pollos. "Entonces aten-
der6 mi propio negocio y podr6
descansar mas", conclude diciendo.

Medidas Contra la Malaria


Los aficionados a pasar dias de
campo en remolques, casas m6vi-
les o en artefactos fabricados por
ellos mismos durante los fines de
semana en las playas y en el inte-
rior, estAn expuestos al peligro de
contraer malaria, a menos que to-
men las medidas profilacticas ade-
cuadas.
Muchas families viajan actual-
mente a lo largo de la carretera
Interamericana para disfrutar de sus
vacaciones veraniegas en los Esta-
dos Unidos. La Organizaci6n Mun-
dial de la Salud ha dicho que no
hay pais entire Panami y los Esta-
dos Unidos libre del riesgo de la
malaria, a menos que est6 sobre los
500 pies de altitude o los viajeros
permanezcan en las areas urbanas
principles, que no suelen ser fre-
cuentadas por quienes cuentan con
sus propias facilidades de aloja-
miento.
Muchas precauciones se pueden
tomar para protegerse al penoc-
tar o pasar dias en el campo. En
tales casos es recomendable cobi-
jarse en un Area cubierta por tela
metalica. No conviene permanecer

Julio 27, 1973


La presi6n de la sangre es, en
realidad, la presi6n que sostienen
las paredes de las arteries, cuando
el coraz6n bombea la sangre a tra-
v6s de ellas. Es perfectamente nor-
mal que la presi6n de la sangre
tenga sus variaciones; puede subir
cuando estamos excitados o bajar,
cuando descansamos. Una alta pre-
si6n de la sangre continuada recar-
ga de trabajo al coraz6n y al siste-
ma circulatorio, reduciendo asi su
habilidad para trabajar debidamen-
te. La hipertensi6n es tambidn la
causa mas comrin de los ataques y
de las fallas del coraz6n y de los
rifiones.

Una vez mis, la Biblioteca de
Paraiso ha celebrado con diferentes
actividades la Semana del Libro.
La bibliotecaria, Lie. Ana B. de
Forero, en uni6n de sus compafie-
ras, las bibliotecarias ayudantes
Sra. Maria de Kidd y Sra. Eleanor
Weeks, han ofrecido exposiciones
especiales y recibido mAs visitantes
que de costumbre.
Tambidn han obtenido un gran
triunfo y es que "La Hora del
Cuento", actividad que se inici6 en
la Biblioteca de Paraiso, ha sido
adoptada por todas las escuelas pri-
marias de la Zona del Canal.
Efectivamente, durante la sema-
na que acaba de pasar, el Profesor
F6lix Figueroa, Supervisor de Cas-
tellano para las Escuelas Latino-
americanas, declare que experts
cuentistas y personalidades del me-
dio educativo de PanamA, visitaron
las escuelas primaries y narraron
cuentos y fibulas a los nifios, con
lo que se implants oficialmente en
las primaries la Hora del Cuento.
Los primeros en visitar la Bi-
blioteca de Paraiso fueron los pe-
quefiines de la Guarderia de Pedro
Miguel. Fue la primera vez que esos
ninios Ilegaban a una biblioteca y
quedaron encantados con los cuen-
tos que se les narraron, los libros
de colors que se les mostraron ,v
una pelicula infantil, que se pro-
yect6 especialmente para ellos. La
visit de los pequcfiines tuvo lugar
el lunes 23, a las 10 a.m.
El midrcoles 25 de julio, los gra-
dos 4, 5 y 6 de la primaria de Pa-


hipertensi6n, no es una enferme-
dad, sino que puede ser sintoma de
varias enfermedades o des6rdenes.
La hipertensidn, en ocasiones,
no tiene sintomas v s6lo un medico
puede descubrirla. Un tratamiento
adecuado puede hacer much para
controlarla. Los medicos pueden
escoger de entire varias drogas o
metodos, tales como la prescripcion
de dietas o cambios en los habitos
de vida. Estas drogas son muy po-
tentes y deben usarse s6lo bajo
6rdenes de un medico.
El prop6sito principal del pro-
grama es dar a conocer al puiblico
que se puede obtener una mejor
salud v vida mAs larga si se en-
cuentra a tiempo la alta presi6n y
se la atiende. Cuando el equipo de
medicos descubra un caso de hi-
pertensi6n, se le entregarA una tar-
jeta a la persona en cuesti6n, para
que haga una cita medica y reciba
tratamiento.
Las pruebas de presi6n sangui-
nea se harAn en el Almacln de
Ventas de Paraiso, el mi6rcoles 19
de agosto, de 12 del dia a 8 p.m.
y el sAbado 4 de agosto, de las
9 a.m. a las 4 p.m.
La prueba s6lo toma unos minu-
tos y es una important salvaguarda
de la vida y la salud.


La ciudad es un ambiente en
donde abundan today clase de rui-
dos que, en el mejor de los casos,
causan molestias a las personas y
adn pueden Ilegar a producer sor-
dera. Las principles causes de mo-
lestias al ciudadano comin son las
bocinas de los autos, los vehiculos
sin silenciador, las cortadoras de
c6sped, las mAquinas soldadoras y
las perforadoras de concrete.
Gran parte del molestoso ruido
que hay en las comunidades de la
Zona del Canal puede ser contro-
lado con s6lo un poco de esfuerzo
y precauci6n, de parte de los em-
pleados y sus denendientes.
QuizAis el mAs molestoso de esos
ruidos, y el mas fi'cil de controlar,
es el que producen las bocinas de
los autom6viles cuando sus opera-
dores conducen por Areas usual-
mente congestionadas. Conviene

hechas por el Instituto de Investi-
gaci6n de la Amdrica Central. No
se ha informado de casos recientes
de la enfermedad en humans.
El Gobierno de PanamA, la Di-
recci6n de Salubridad de la Zona-
del Canal, las Fuerzas Armadas de
la Zona del Canal v el Institute
Conmemorativo Gorgas estAn de-
sarrollando un program conijnto
de control, que include la fumiga-
ci6n por tierra y aire de grades
extensions de terra en la Zona del
Canal y en la Repiblica de Pana-
mai, tendiente a reducir la pobla-
ci6n de mosquitos. Un cargamento
de vacunas para inmunizar caballos
contra la encefalitis Ilee6 el 19 del
present mes, inici-ndose la vacu-
nqci6n de los animals el lunes 23
de iulio.
El Coronel William A. Bovson,
Director de Salubridad, ha rcco-
mendado que todos los residents
de la Zona del Canal eviten viajar
a Chepo, Pacora v Chilibre, y que
se mantengan debidamente nrote-
gidos de los mosquitos durante la
mafiana y la noche, cuando es
mayor el peligro de las ricadas de
los mosquitos.


en estos casos limitar a lo necesario
el uso de las bocinas. Pero a me-
nudo los conductors hacen sonar
la bocina para saludar a un amigo
o hacer notar su presencia frente
a un edificio o un establecimiento.
Otros ruidos innecesarios que
pueden evitarse son los producidos
al probar motors fuera de borda a
tempranas horas de los sAbados y
domingos, y el use de sierras elec-
tricas por aficionados a la carpinte-
ria, durante las horas de la noche.
Recientemente el SPILLWAY pu-
blic6 una informaci6n suministra-
da por funcionarios de salubridad
del Canal segin la cual el nivel de
ruidos producido en el taller de
reparaci6n de calderas en la Zona
del Canal es de 112 decibeles, si-
milar al producido por una banda
de "rock and roll". El informed re-
velaba que cualquier ruido sobre
los 100 decibels estA prohibido en
la industrial si no se emplea equipo
protector para los oidos, y que cual-
quier ruido sobre los 85 decibeles
producirA perdida de la audici6n.
Los medicos recomiendan que
aquellos que deseen conservar en
buen estado la audici6n deben ayu-
dar a disminuir los ruidos al grado
minimo possible.


raiso visitaron la biblioteca. La Sra.
de Forero les dict6 una charla so-
bre el tema "Uso de la Biblioteca"
y les proyect6 una pelicula sobre el
papel que juegan las bibliotecas en
el mundo de hoy. Los nifios que-
daron muy impresionados con su
visit.
El viernes 27 de julio, la biblio-
teca fue visitada por los alumnos
graduandos y pregraduandos de la
secundaria de Paraiso. La Sra. de
Botello los atendi6, en uni6n de las
sefioras de Kidd y Weeks, mostrAn-
doles especialmente las secciones
de libros de consult para universi-
tarios y la secci6n de Panama de
la biblioteca. A continuaci6n, la
Profesora Margarita Jurado habl6
a los estudiantes sobre "La Biblio-
tecologia como Profesi6n".
Ademas de las charlas y la pro-
yeccion de peliculas, los alumnos
visitantes conocieron todas las de-
pendencias de la biblioteca y las
facilidades que brinda a los que
deseen usarla. Como despedida, se
les obsequi6 con una copia del bo-
letin especial que la Biblioteca de
Paraiso edit6 con motive de la
Semana del Libro.
