1974 Charter Schedule

OFFers 4 More Flights

Fifteen northbound and twelve
southbound charter flights between
Tocumen and Miami are on the
schedule for the summer of 1974,
according to an advance notice
issued by the Transportation Branch.
This will be four more flights
than were made this year carrying
Panama Canal employees and their
dependents traveling at Govern-
ment expense to Miami on home
leave. In addition, there will be one
northbound and one southbound
charter flight between Tocumen
and New Orleans.

To CFC Hit 97%

Of Canal's Goal
With a goal of $227,300 to be
raised by the Canal organization,
contributions on the 12th day of
the 1974 Combined Federal Cam-
paign had reached 97 percent of
the assigned goal.
The Office of the Comptroller and
the Civil Affairs Bureau became the
fifth and six bureaus of the Canal
organization to surpass their goals
in this year's campaign. Other Canal
bureaus and units previously re-
ported to be over the top are the
Supply and Community Service Bu-
reau, Staff and Administrative units,
Personnel Bureau, and the Trans-
portation and Terminals Bureau.
In the Health Bureau, the Man-
agement Operations Office at Ancon
surpassed its goal.
Of a $332,000 goal for all civilian
and military agencies of the U.S.
Government on the Isthmus, con-
tributions had reached 79 percent.
The 1974 Combined Federal
Campaign which began Septem-
ber 27 continues through Novem-
ber 3. Employees may make their
contributions through the easy pay-
roll deduction plan or by a cash
contribution through their keyman.
All past campaigns have been re-
sounding successes.

Maria La Antigua, the Panama sec-
ondary schools, and the Canal Zone
Latin American secondary schools
during the 14-week period from
January 2 through April 6.

For Mystery
The Theatre Guild, Inc., of
Ancon, announces that tryouts for
its next production, The Tree
Climber, will be held at 2 p.m.,
October 20 and 21 and at 7 p.m.,
October 22. This interesting two-
act play is a murder mystery, written
in a comic vein, and will be di-
rected by Robert Teta.
The play, by Egyptian writer
Tewfik Al-Hakim, has six charac-
ters, three male and three female.
The public is invited to take part

Canal Zone Health Officials have
reported that rabies virus was re-
covered from the brain of a mar-
moset that died October 6, 5 days
after scratching its owner, a 13-yr-
old girl who resides with her family
in Ancon.
The marmoset was purchased 8
months ago from a commercial
source of wild animals located in
Chepo, Republic of Panama, and
had been kept caged outside the
family's quarters. The girl is cur-
rently receiving antirabies vaccine
treatment at Gorgas Hospital.
A similar incident occurred in
February 1973, on the Atlantic side
of the Isthmus, when a squirrel that
had been purchased in San Blas
bit its owner on a finger. The squir-
rel died the following day and lab-
oratory tests disclosed that the
cause of death was rabies. The
owner received antirabies treatment
and remains well.
The diagnosis of rabies in these
two wild animals is significant from
a public health standpoint and the
Health Director, Dr. Bedford H.
Berrey, advises all residents to use
extreme caution in approaching or
handling wild species that may be
encountered in their communities.
The Canal Zone has been re-
latively free from rabies since 1910,
and a local program of vaccination,
annual registration, stray animal
collection and quarantine has been
effective in controlling the disease
in the dog and cat, two species of
domestic animals frequently re-
sponsible for transmitting rabies to
Rabies was not detected in wild
animals on the Isthmus, except in
bats, until it appeared in the squir-
rel and marmoset in February and
October of this year. The disease
appears now to have disseminated
in the wild fauna of the Isthmus,
increasing the hazard it poses to
Canal Zone residents.
Wild animals are abundant in the
Canal Zone, living in heavily jungled
areas which are contiguous with
most townsites on both sides of the
Isthmus. These wild animals are
commonly seen foraging in yards
around quarters and it is this in-
timacy between the human and
wild animal populations that en-
larges the danger of rabies trans-
mission. Measures used to control

Canal Theaters

Plan Treat Nights

For Youngsters
Two nights of treats are planned
for moviegoers as the Panama
Canal Motion Picture Section's con-
tribution to Pre-Halloween fun.
On Treat Nights, October 26 and
27, it will be two tickets for the
price of one. Anyone buying a
ticket-an adult ticket, a student
ticket, or a child's ticket-will get a
second ticket free, so a child may
bring a parent or a friend as a guest
or an adult may bring another adult
as a guest.
In addition, each patron under
the age of 12 will receive a sack of
Feature pictures on the first Treat
Night, October 26, are: Charlotts

rabies in domestic animals cannot
be applied effectively to wild animal
Wild animals encountered within
Canal Zone townsites should be
avoided, particularly if they appear
to be aggressive, and persons who
are bitten or scratched by such
animals should seek the attention of
a physician without delay. Docile
appearing wild animals should also
be avoided.
Health Bureau officials strongly
recommend against keeping wild or
exotic species of animals as pets.
Such species, which people like to
possess because they are unusual or
are regarded as status symbols,
create disease, diet and exercise
problems different from those of
domesticated pets. They also pre-
sent a difficult problem, even a
traumatic experience, when they
must be disposed of. Frequently,
zoos will not accept them and
owners feel they are "too domesti-
cated" to be returned to the wild.
The wild pets most dangerous to
human health are the nonhuman
primates, which include members
of the monkey family. These ani-
mals can transmit several diseases
to man, including tuberculosis. As
pets, they are never toilet trained
successfully; they are essentially
dirty, very demanding of attention
and are prone to bite and scratch.
Nevertheless, these animals are
sought after and can be found caged
in and around many homes in the
Canal Zone.
Health Bureau officials recom-
mend that persons who insist upon
keeping wild animals as pets protect
themselves and their neighbors by
following the suggestions below:
-have the animal examined by a
veterinarian before or as soon after
purchase as possible;
-maintain the animal apart from
other caged animals for at least 30
days following purchase;
-consult your veterinarian re-
garding tests for tuberculosis and
vaccination against rabies, which he
may recommend be performed;
-keep the animal confined to a
secure and locked cage that is
elevated several feet off the ground,
to preclude access by other animals
and small children;
-return the animal to your vet-
erinarian as soon as illness becomes

Role of Family Stressed

In Drug Abuse Prevention

The week of October 21-27 has
been designated as Drug Abuse Pre-
vention Week with emphasis on the
role of the family group in prevent-
ing drug abuse.
The human family, whether it is
the traditional family, the family of
peers and associates, or any group
of people who are drawn together
by common interests and needs, is
recognized as an important medium
in the prevention of drug abuse.
Among the conditions that con-

Education Week

To Be Observed
American Education Week will
be observed by the U.S. elementary
schools in the Canal Zone from
October 23 to October 26.
The distribution of report cards
for the first marking period of the
school year will be made during
American Education Week and, this
year, instead of children taking their
report cards home, the parents have
been invited to attend a parent-
teacher conference to learn of the
progress of their children and to
receive their report cards.
In the past, group parent-teacher
conferences were held on Visitors'
Day during September.

tribute to drug abuse are lack of
parental guidance, unacceptable
role models and peer pressures.
Proper family environment provides
its members with values, attitudes
and guidelines to cope with every-
day situations. Group and family
activity is often the only means
through which a human being can
release pent-up tensions. If one is
neglected by those around him, he
will soon neglect himself. A person
must feel useful and needed in
order for him to make the proper
adjustment to his environment and
to achieve a positive self-image.
A forum must be available where
there are those who care what he
thinks and what he does. Whatever
his problem, he must feel that he
can go to them for help. Lack of
family identity coupled with per-
sonal problems and other frustra-
tions often create the kind of des-
peration that can lead to drugs.
Drug Abuse Prevention Week is
intended to remind people that
there are ways to communicate
within a family setting and that this
kind of communication can be
rewarding and enriching.

competitions completed to date,
34,450 students have won Merit
Scholarships valued at more than
$95.5 million.
The approximately 15,000 semi-
finalists were the highest scorers in
each State on the Preliminary Scho-
lastic Aptitude Test-National Merit
Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT-
NMSQT) administered last October
to more than 1 million students in
about 17,000 schools nationwide.
These students, who constitute
about one-half of 1 percent of
graduating secondary school seniors
in the United States, will complete
high school and enter college in

Safety Hints

Are Offered

For Halloween

Give maxii" protection to the
"mini" set when readying youngsters
for Halloween fun.
There is no "midi"-no half-way
point-when it comes to fire safety
at Halloween time, reminds the Na-
tional Fire Protection Association
as October 31 approaches. Accord-
ing to reports compiled by the
international fire safety organiza-
tion, the greatest Halloween hazard
is the clothing fire.
Keep these NFPA lifesaving tips
on Halloween costumes and decora-
tions in mind:
1. Be sure readymade costumes,
masks, wigs, and beards carry a
"flameproof" label.
2. For homemade costumes, slay
away from flimsy materials and out-
fits with yards and yards of mate-
rial in baggy sleeves and billowing
skirts. A touch of flame can start
them burning.
3. Children should never carry a
pumpkin lighted by a wax candle.
Do not set a candle-lighted pump-
kin on a doorstep where it could be
brushed by children's costumes.
And do not use one indoors, either.
4. Clothing-even sturdy dungar-
ees-can burn. So be sure children
understand that they must stay
away from any open fire or flame-
stoves, lighted matches, and ciga-
rette lighters.


Cash Awards


The Soroptimist Foundations of
the Soroptimist Federation of the
Americas, Inc., have announced
their identifying project, Youth Cit-
izenship Awards for 1974.
Seventeen $1,000 awards, one to
each winner within the fifteen re-
gions and two affiliated areas of the
Soroptimist Federation of the Amer-
icas, Inc., will be awarded. In addi-
tion, a $1,500 finalist award will go
to 1 of the 17 winners above,
making a total of $2,500 to the
finalist. Comprising one of the affil-
iated areas are the four clubs in the
Republic of Panama.
Last year more than 2,000 schools
in the federation participated in the
11th annual Youth Citizenship
Awards Program and close to 600
clubs submitted entries, including
the clubs in the Republic of Panama
and Costa Rica.
The Soroptimist Youth Citizen-
ship Awards are not scholarships
but an "Award of Merit." Each
award may be used at the discre-
tion of the recipient, in any way he
may decide which will further his
aims and purposes in achieving his
goal-education, travel, etc. The
cash awards are paid in lump sums
to the winning students.
Any young man or woman who
will be graduating from high school
during the 1973-74 school year, but
not later than June 1974, is eligible
to apply.
To qualify for the awards which
are judged on the merit and worth
of the applicant, a student must
have fulfilled the following: Service,
Dependability, Leadership, and
Clear Sense of Purpose. Each can-
didate is required to complete the
official application for Soroptimist
Youth Citizenship Awards which
can be available in the high school
where he attends.

ties in the Civic Council shows in-
volvement in a wide range of com-
munity issues and problems. For
example, through one of its com-
mittees, the council was influential
in obtaining a substantial decrease
in prices of cosmetics and sundries
in the local retail stores. This same
committee also met with local retail
store buyers to discuss consumer
needs and complaints about the
products currently available.
Another accomplishment was ob-
taining the promise of a crosswalk
and stoplight for the safety of chil-
dren in the area of the Little League
Farm League ball parks. To keep
better informed on community ac-
tivities, the council has heard talks
by the Health Director, Gorgas
Hospital Director, Chief of the
Safety Branch and the Youth Ad-
visor to the Governor. Members of
the council also participated in the
Ad Hoc Committee on the length
of the school year.
Future activities will include dis-
tributing a public opinion question-
naire on issues such as the no
smoking regulation in the Balboa
Theater, Gorgas medical services,
quality of cafeteria service and
length of the school calendar year.
One committee will meet Octo-
ber 24 with Dr. James Ransone, the
new director of Gorgas Hospital,

The council encourages public
participation in its monthly meet-
ings at 7:30 p.m., the second

Con Rapidez

Para la Meta
Con una meta de $227.300 fijada
a la empresa del Canal de PanamA,
en el duod6cimo dia de la Campa-
fia Federal Combinada de 1974

de lo sefialado.
La Contraloria y la Direcci6n de
Asuntos Civiles se convirtieron en
la quinta y sexta direcciones de la
empresa del Canal que sobrepasa-
ron la meta en la campafia de este
afio. Las otras direcciones y unida-
des que anteriormente se habia in-
formado que sobrepasaron la meta
son: Abastos y Servicios Comuna-
les, las unidades Ejecutivas y Admi-
nistrativas, la Direcci6n de Perso-
nal y la Direcci6n de Transporte y
En la Direcci6n de Personal, la
Oficina de Operaciones Administra-
tivas de Anc6n sobrepas6 su meta.
Con una meta total de $332.000,
que ha sido fijada para todas las
agencies civiles y militares del Go-
bierno de los Estados Unidos que
operan en la Zona del Canal, las
contribuciones que hasta ahora se
han obtenido Ilegan al 79 por ciento

noviembre. Los empleados pueden
hacer sus contribuciones por medio
del convenient plan de deduccio-
nes de salario o en efectivo por me-
dio del representante de la Campa-

La Division de Policia de la Zona
del Canal informa que en los lilti-
mos 60 dias ha habido cuatro acci-
dentes de trAnsito que han causado
la muerte a varias personas en ca-
rreteras de esta Area. Dos de los ac-
cidentes sucedieron en la Carretera
Gaillard, cerca de Fuerte Clayton,
uno en el Puente Ferry Thatcher y
el otro en la Carretera Thatcher.
Se ha anunciado que se utilizarin
vehiculos sin marcas para ayudar a
los radiopatrullas regulars en su
area de hacer que se cumplan los
reglamentos del trAnsito en la Zona
del Canal. Dichos vehiculos sin
marcas, que utilizarAn aparatos de
radar en su vigilancia, se colocarAn
en areas seleccionadas para hacer
cumplir las reglas del trAnsito y
como medio de reducir los acciden-
tes en todas las carreteras.

Identifican la Rabia en

Otro Animal SelvaOtico

Los funcionarios de Salubridad
de la Zona del Canal informaron
que se encontr6 el virus de la rabia
en un mono titi que muri6 el 6 de
octubre de 1973, cinco dias despu6s
de haber arafiado a su duefia, una
nifia de 13 aflos que reside con su
familiar en Anc6n.
El mono titi fue comprado hace
8 meses en un lugar commercial que
se especializa en animals salvajes
en Chepo, Republica de PanamA y
habia sido mantenido en una jaula,
fuera de la residencia de la familiar.
La nifia se encuentra recibiendo
tratamiento de vacunaci6n antirri-
bica en el Hospital Gorgas.
Un incident similar sucedi6 en
febrero de 1973, en el sector AtlAn-
tico del Istmo, cuando una ardilla,
que habia sido comprada en San
Blas, mordi6 a su duefio en un
dedo. La ardilla muri6 al dia si-
guiente y las pruebas de laborato-
rio demostraron que la causa de la
muerte habia sido la rabia. El duefio

fue tratado contra la rabia y se
encuentra bien.
El diagn6stico de rabia en esos
dos animals selvAticos es significa-
tivo, desde el punto de vista de la
salubridad p6blica, y el Director de
Salubridad, Dr. Bedford H. Berrey,
aconseja a todos los residents que
tengan extrema precauci6n al acer-
carse o al tender los animals sel-
vAticos que puedan encontrar.
La rabia no fue descubierta en
los animals selvAticos del Istmo,
con excepci6n de los murci6lagos,
hasta que apareci6 en la ardilla y
en el mono titi, en febrero y octu-
bre de este afio, respectivamente.
Parece que ahora la enfermedad se
ha diseminado entire la fauna sal-
vaje de PanamA, con lo que ha au-
mentado el peligro para los resi-
dentes de la Zona del Canal.
Se deberA evitar los animals sel-
viticos que se encuentren en los
poblados de la Zona del Canal, es-

nando Chevanes, los inspirados ju-
gadores del quintet mayor de Pa-
raiso lograron derrotar el pasado 12
de Octubre, Dia de la Hispanidad,
al equipo de la Escuela de Artes y

ocasiones. Los inspirados j6venes de
Paraiso s61o pudieron alejarse de sus
tenaces opositores faltando 5 minu-
tos de juego, fase en que multipli-
caron sus esfuerzos para terminar
con 10 puntos de ventaja.
Los "Adanes" de Paraiso lucie-
ron much mejor en esta oportuni-
dad que hace 1 afio, cuando se ad-
judicaron el campeonato de la Liga
Intercolegial de Baloncesto de la
Zona del Canal. No obstante ello,
los "Artesanos" resultaron en todo
moment peligrosos rivals.

t6 29 tantos, destacaron por el
quinteto ganador Federico Butler,
con 23 puntos y 19 rebotes, Thomas,

dades y problems de dieta y ejerci-

4. Mantenga al animal confinado
en una jaula segura y bien cerrada,
que este various pies sobre el suelo,
para evitar que se acerquen otros
animals y nifios pequeios.
