President Finds Out


2d Graders Are First Class Advisers


There are 24 Presidential ad-
visers in Room 106 of the Balboa
Elementary School and they have
a letter and photograph of Pres-
ident Gerald R. Ford to prove it.
Taking him at his word when
he said he needed all the help he
could get, each of the second
graders wrote letters to the Pres-
ident sending suggestions for solv-
ing the pollution problem.
Cerene Macklin summed up the
classes' feelings with a flat state-
ment of fact: "There is pollution
and we want to help you stop it."
A more specific pollution solu-
tion was offered by Jaime Resni-
koff who said: "There is a lot of
pollution going on and you should
tell people not to pollute and to
stop making styrofoam glasses or
people might get diseases."


Carmen Lovett added a per-
sonal touch to her letter by send-
ing her regards to Mrs. Ford and
asking how she was feeling.
That President Ford was pleased
to receive the children's letters was
evident in his reply. After telling
the boys and girls that he was glad
to hear from them, he said it was
always encouraging when "young
people demonstrate their active in-
terest in our Government." The
President added, "we need your
help to make our Nation and the
world a better place for all."
After he told the children how
much their good wishes meant to
him and Mrs. Ford, he concluded
his letter by sending his best wishes
for the years ahead.
The class understands that being
a President is very hard work and


that pollution is just one of the
many problems that keeps Pres-
ident Ford busy, so they were
even more grateful for the imme-
diate response their letters re-
ceived.
With an insight that is rare for
an 8-year-old, Cerene felt there
was more to the letter than the
fact that the President appreciated
the classes' advice.
She said, "I know he liked the
letters because even if he is busy
he was not too busy to write a
letter to us and that shows he
respects people."
Anthony "Tony" Dymond had a
more personal appreciation for the
time President Ford took to write
to the class. Tony is class pres-
ident and knows firsthand what a

Smaller Amounts To Be Withheld


From Pay Under New Tax Tables


Commencing May 11, new with-
holding tax tables reflected reduced
amounts of income tax to be with-
held from U.S.-citizen employees'
pay. The new tables prescribed by
the Department of the Treasury
are required by the Tax Reduction
Act of 1975.
The reductions in tax withhold-
ing result primarily from:
-An increase in the low income
allowance from $1,300 to $1,600
for a single person (or head-of-
household), and $1,900 for a mar-
ried couple filing a joint return.
-An increase in the standard de-
duction from 15 percent to 16 per-
cent, with the maximum increased
from $2,000 to $2,300 for a single
person (or head-of-household), and
to $2,600 for a married couple
filing a joint return.
-A new tax credit of $30 for
the taxpayer, his or her spouse,
and each dependent.
-A new earned income tax
credit with a maximum credit of
$400, which phases out completely
when income reaches $8,000.
The IRS advised that three cat-
egories of employees, in particular,
should check their withholding
under the new tables, and if neces-
sary, file a new Form W-4, "Em-


ployees Withholding Allowance
Certificate."
The first category includes the
great majority of taxpayers who
have been overwithheld in the
past. This occurs most frequently
in situations in which there is one
wage earner and the taxpayer is
not claiming all the withholding
allowances to which he or she is
entitled, or has four or more ex-
emptions. These taxpayers will con-
tinue to be overwithheld under the
new tables, and should consider
filing a new Form W-4, claiming
additional withholding allowances.
The second category is married
couples, when both spouses are
employed. The withholding tables
give each spouse the greater of
the low income allowance or the
percentage standard deduction.
This may cause them to be under-
withheld because, on a joint tax
return, the couple is entitled to
only one low income allowance or
percentage standard deduction.
The third group which should
review its withholding includes
employees who now claim addi-
tional withholding allowances due
to large itemized deductions. Un-
der the new withholding rules,
some of these employees may no
longer be entitled to as many with-


Four Balboa High School seniors who maintained a straight 4.0 average

Awards Day Assembly.


holding allowances for large item-
ized deductions as they are now
claiming. The new rules have not
yet been received here.
Here is how to compute the
amount of income tax to be de-
ducted and withheld from a pay-
ment of wages under the new
tables:
(1) multiply $28.80 by the
number of exemptions claimed
by the employee on his Form
W-4;
(2) subtract that amount
from the employee's wages;
(3) determine the amount
to be withheld from the ap-
propriate payroll period table
on page 4.

SMILES IN 24 VARIETIES ranging from joy to excitement to quiet
satisfaction reflect the delight these concerned citizens feel after a per-
sonal letter from President Gerald R. Ford was delivered to them in
Room 106 of Balboa Elementary School. Each of the youngsters in
Mrs. Sylvia Goldmann's second grade class had written a letter to the
President with suggestions on how he could solve the pollution problem.


IPres. Ford and Gov. Parfitt Urge Economy


To All Employees of the Panama Canal Company and the
Canal Zone Government:
In a letter to me, the President of the United States asked that I convey
through agency communications media his message to you regarding cost
reduction and energy conservation. He asked also that I find special
ways to encourage and recognize employees whose efforts result in
significant cost savings.
It has long been our policy through our incentive awards program to
identify and reward those employees who demonstrate initiative in
devising ways to improve efficiency and reduce costs. In keeping with
the President's message, I wish to place renewed emphasis on the im-
portance of the incentive awards program and to urge your increased
participation in it as a means of accomplishing economies and improve-
ments in Government service that the President points out are vital in
the present period of recession and inflation.
I share the President's belief that by working together we can reduce
spending and improve Federal products and services.



H. R. PARFITT,
Governor.


Message to All Federal Civilian and Military Personnel:
A victorious campaign against the problems of recession and inflation
requires individual discipline and ingenuity as well as the total mobiliza-
tion of America's greatest resources-the brains, the skills, and the will
power of our people. In this fight, it is vital that all Federal civilian and
military personnel become actively involved in cost reduction and energy
conservation efforts.
Each of you can make a personal contribution by submitting con-
structive ideas and working cooperatively to eliminate waste, improve
equipment, streamline operations or make more productive use of time,
facilities and energy resources. I have established a special cost reduc-
tion campaign within the framework of the Federal Government awards
program to encourage cost saving suggestions.
During the remainder of Calendar Year 1975, I will take special note
of outstanding contributions of civilian and military personnel. I have
asked to be informed of all suggestions, inventions and scientific and
other contributions which result in first year measurable benefits to the
Government of $5,000 or more so that I may add my personal thanks
and congratulations in addition to the cash awards available to
participants.
I strongly urge each of you to seek economies and other improvements
within the Government while providing high quality services to the
public. By working together, I am confident that Federal spending can
be reduced and products and services improved.

After 2 weeks of formal instruction in operating a
motorcycle, rules of the road, safety and maintenance,
these Balboa High School students are prepared to
apply for an operator's license. Since last September,
when the Schools Division began its motorcycle driver
training program for 16 to 18-year-old Canal Zone
school students, 102 young cyclists on both sides of
the Isthmus have completed the course, passed a test,
and received certificates indicating they are qualified
to apply for their license. The first week of the pro-


gram is spent in the classroom. The second week the
students move outside for actual on-the-bike driving
lessons. From left, standing, are: Henry Baker, Glen
Murphy, William E. Weigle III, a Canal Zone Police
officer who instructs the Pacific side courses during
his off-duty time; Doran Lewis and Leonard Villavi-
cencio. On the bikes, provided by the Schools Divi-
sion for the training course, are Henry Ostrowski and

Scouts Plan Flea Market Cristobal Little Theatre


Troop 17, Boy Scouts of Amer-
ica, Fort Clayton, will conduct a

ing 155 (rear of the NCO parking
lot), Fort Clayton.
Contribution of serviceable used
items such as clothing, appliances,
furniture, books, bicycles and toys,
are requested from the commu-
nity. For pick-up service call 87-

Questions; Answers

On Retirement
Q.: How much additional an-
nuity may be purchased with the
voluntary contribution account?
A.: The amount depends upon
the age of the employee at the time
of retirement and, once fixed, the
additional annuity does not change
as he grows older. The regular an-
nuity will be increased by $7 per
year for each $100 credited to his
voluntary contribution account if
he is age 55 or younger. This
amount increases 20 cents for each
full year he is over age 55 at the
time he retires. For each $100, the
yearly increase in the regular an-
nuity is $7.20 for an employee retir-
ing at age 56; at age 60 it is $8; at
age 63 it is $8.60; and at age 70
it is $10.
Q.: The health benefits plan in
which I'm enrolled does not pay
benefits for hospital room and board
charges for diagnostic admissions.
Why not?
A.: Many diagnostic X-rays and
laboratory clinical tests can be per-
formed on an outpatient basis with-
out adversely affecting the patient's
physical condition or the quality of
medical care rendered. In these
cases, hospitalization is not a neces-
sity but a luxury, and the carrier
will cover the cost of the medically
necessary diagnostic tests but not
the room and board charges. Un-
necessary hospital admissions not
only increase health benefits pre-
miums but also tie up beds that
may be needed by those who are
critically ill.

Red Cross Course
The Canal Zone Chapter, Amer-
ican Red Cross, will hold a Volun-
teer Training Course on Wednes-
day, May 28, for adults who are
residents of the Canal Zone or
military dependents. Those inter-
ested should call the Red Cross
office at 52-6669 for more informa-
tion.


Comedy To Open Tonight


The curtain goes up at 8 o'clock
tonight on the Cristobal Little The-
atre's production of 6 RMS RV
VU, a hilarious comedy that had a
successful run on Broadway and a
play that is fun for the entire
family.
Scheduled performance dates are
tonight, Saturday and Sunday and
next weekend, May 30 and 31.
Curtain time each night is 8 p.m.
Bruce Hicks, making his debut
at the Cristobal Little Theatre, has
the lead role and his wife, Judy


Hicks, also is in the cast, but plays
the role of someone else's love
problem.
Costarring with Bruce is Judy
Pannebaker, well-known at the
Cristobal Little Theatre for her
performances in Hello Dolly and
Separate Rooms.
The show revolves around two
couples viewing for the same rent-
controlled apartment and when one
husband and the wife of the other
find themselves locked in the apart-
ment alone, the laughs begin.

Dean Glen Murphy has announc-
ed that registration for the summer
session will be held June 9-20, and
classes will begin on Monday,
June 23. In order to schedule the
equivalent of 9 weeks of class in-
truction in the 8-week period,
classes will meet Monday through
Thursday for the first 4-week
period, June 23 through July 17,
and Monday through Friday for
the remaining 4 weeks. Final ex-
aminations for the summer session
will be held Friday, August 15.
The summer session class sched-
ule is being distributed from the
administrative office of the Canal
Zone College. New students who
wish to enroll in the college for
the first time in the summer ses-
sion should speak with the Regis-
trar or one of the counselors con-
cerning registration procedures.


Four U.S. elementary schools
are completing a 3 months trial
program with a different schoolday
schedule.
Students in the Fort Davis, Fort
Gulick, Kobbe and Howard AFB
elementary schools have been start-
ing their schoolday at 8 a.m. and
going home at 1:30 p.m. The
major difference between their
schedule and the schoolday at the
other 10 elementary schools is in
the lunch period. In place of taking
75 minutes for lunch, including
being bused home, students in the
four pilot schools take lunch to
school and eat in their classrooms
with their teachers.
All teachers and parents in the
four pilot schools were asked re-
cently to recommend either the
adoption of the single session for
a 1 year trial period in all schools,
or the return to their previous
schedule, which is the present
schedule in the 10 schools not in-
volved in the pilot program.
Their response was an over-
whelming approval of the single
session day. With all but a hand-
ful of the ballots in by press time,
83 percent of the parents recom-
mended adoption of the 8 a.m. to
1:30 p.m. schedule. Only 17 per-
cent wanted to return to the sched-


i ,


ule with the long lunch period.
The elimination of the many prob-
lems that have been related to the
long lunch hour was cited by many
parents as their major reason for
their choice. School officials stated
that so few ballots were still out,
that the final outcome would not
change more than 1 percent.
Teacher endorsement of the
single session day was even more
emphatic. With all teacher votes
counted, 88 percent favored the
new schedule, while 12 percent
recommended a return to the pre-
vious schedule. Improved after
lunch teaching and learning was
considered the greatest advantage
by the teachers. Not having the
children returning from lunch wet,
tired, upset, or keyed up resulted
in more learning and more time
for learning since the lunch hour
problems did not take the teach-
ers' time. Half-day afternoon ab-
sences have virtually disappeared.
Many of the concerns of teach-
ers and parents were resolved dur-
ing the 3 months trial period.
School officials feel the 20-minute
period of time for lunch has proven
to be adequate. Many teachers re-
port having time for story reading
and other activities during the
lunch break.
The physical education period,


the lunch period, and an additional
bathroom and drink break prevent
the day from being a straight 5,1-
hour stretch. Teacher pacing of
learning activities has been effec-
tive in keeping the children inter-
ested and learning.
An after school supervised re-
creation program has proven pop-
ular with many children and has
also solved the problem of the fam-
ilies in which' both parents work.
The playground is giving way to
the playshelter as the afternoon
rains begin again.
One school official observed that
the overwhelming approval of the
program was not as much of a sur-
prise as it might have been with-
out the weekly evaluations. Call-
ing this the most thoroughly eval-
uated program ever seen in the
Canal Zone schools, the official
said the final vote reflected the
week by week growing enthusiasm
for the program.
The final step to be taken before
the Governor's Advisory Commit-
tee on Education forwards its rec-
ommendation to the Governor will
be a survey of the teachers and
parents of the 10 schools which
did not participate in the pilot
program. Survey forms are being
distributed in these schools.

Camelot Tryouts
(Continued from p. 1)
direction for Fiddler on the Roof.
Camelot provides a challenge
for actors and singers alike. The
need for good actors and able
singers is reflected in the caliber
and evident competency of the
original cast on Broadway: Richard
Burton (King Arthur), Julie An-
drews (Guenevere), Robert Goulet
(Lancelot) and Roddy MacDowell
(Mordrid). There are a number of
chorus parts and students back on
the Isthmus for the summer, as
well as young service personnel,
are being extended a special invi-
tation to audition for these parts.
Camelot is being produced for
the United Way by Bruce Quinn
and Kenneth Pitman who produced
Fiddler on the Roof. Vera Bom-
ford, a veteran of several United
Way productions, will choreograph
the Lerner and Lowe music. The
U.S. Air Forces Southern Com-
mand Band will provide musical
support and sets will be designed
by Dennis Broud.

High School Auditorium July 24
through August 9.

The Abou Saad Temple Hot
Sands Ceremonial will take place
tomorrow.
Ceremonies will begin with ini-
tiate rites early in the morning
followed by a parade that will start
at 9:30 a.m. at the La Boca Print-
ing Plant and end at Stevens
Circle.
The day's activities will con-
clude with a ceremonial banquet
at 6 p.m., at the Fort Amador
Officers' Club.


Community Day Care Centers Benefit CZ. Working Mothers


One year after the first day care
centers were established in the
Canal Zone to help solve the prob-
lems of working mothers, the facil-
ities have proved capable of meet-
ing the need for caring for chil-
dren outside their own homes.
Through the coordinated efforts
on the part of the Canal organiza-
tion and members of the commu-
nity, the centers solved what, at
first, was thought to be a crisis,
when the local domestics were in-
cluded in the U.S. minimum wage
law that went into effect May 1 of
last year. During this interval, the
centers have provided adequate
child care and developmental pro-
grams designed to promote the
child's physical, emotional, social
and intellectual growth.
To assure that the centers follow
the requirements and guidelines
set by the Canal organization con-
cerning health, safety and fire pro-
tection, they were evaluated prior
to approval by the Housing Branch
of the Community Services Divi-
sion for appropriateness of the
facility to be used; the Fire Divi-
sion, to confirm compliance with
fire and safety regulations; and the
Division of Preventive Medicine,
whose representatives made an on-


the-site evaluation to insure com-
pliance with standard health regu-
lations.
Playing an important role in the
endeavor are the Public Health
nurses assigned to the various
townsites who make monthly visits
to the centers and to the nursery
schools. They not only look out for
the health education of the young-
sters, check on health problems,
immunizations, first aid supplies
and other matters pertaining to the
well being of the children, but
also make checks on the health
status of the adults in the center.
The Balboa Child Care Center,
sponsored by the Balboa Union
Church, and under the direction
of Mrs. Nedra Spurlock, opened
on May 1, the first to meet the
challenge when the care centers
became a subject of special con-
cern. Mrs. Spurlock started out
with five children on that day and
now has 40 children registered and
an average of 20 attending daily.
Most attend on an hourly or drop
in basis. The center operates from
7 a.m. to 5 p.m. The children
range from 1 to 6 years and mostly
play and socialize. Their activities
include playing with blocks, puz-
zles, painting, water playing, finger


painting group dancing and sing-
ing, coloring, playing with clay,
educational toys and reading readi-
ness. Mrs. Spurlock, whose goal is
to instill self confidence in the chil-
dren, was presented a plaque by
grateful parents on the first an-
niversary of the center.
Another successful child care
facility is the Christian Child Care
Center at Balboa Heights, spon-
sored by the Baptist Church. Un-
der the direction of Mrs. Leona
Lee, the center opened on May 3
with three children. Today, en-
rollment fluctuates between 35 and
40 children. As a long term type
care center, the facility operates
on a three-category basis; by the
month for children whose mothers
work from 6:45 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.;
by the week for children whose
parents are temporarily without
domestic help; and on a daily basis
for those who attend for a few
hours.
Mrs. Bobbie Ward of Los Rios
will open a half-day day care cen-
ter at her home in early June to
accommodate six children from 8
a.m. to 12 noon.
A number of nursery type schools
have been operating for years on
both sides of the Isthmus.


Mrs. Camille Rexroad at the Christian Child Care Center at Balboa
Heights put the tots through the daily exercise routine, one of the many
activities at the child care center under the direction of Mrs. Leona Lee.
The center is sponsored by the First Baptist Church.

Donacion


A Escuelas

De Ciegos
Una maquina de escribir en al-
fabeto Braille con su correspon-
diente suministro especial de papel
para escribir con ellas fue la valio-
sa donaci6n que el Club de Leo-
nes de Balboa hizo el martes 13
de mayo a la Escuela de Ciegos
Helen Keller, que funciona en la
barriada de Betania, en PanamA.
El mismo dia, los Leones de
Balboa obsequiaron el Centro de
Rehabilitaci6n de Ciegos Adultos,
que funciona en Las Cumbres, dos
miquinas con su correspondiente
cantidad de papel.
La entrega de tan valiosos obse-
quios estuvo a cargo de una comi-
si6n de Leones de Balboa, dirigi-
dos por su president Vernon Dun-
nell. En la Escuela de Ciegos
Helen Keller, el Subdirector de la
Escuela, Profesor AndrBs C. Toro,
recibi6 la donaci6n y agradeci6 con
emotivas palabras la ayuda que en
todo moment reciben de los Leo-
nes de Balboa. En el Centro de
Rehabilitaci6n de Las Cumbres,
fue la director del establecimien-
to docente de adults, Profesora
Graciela C. de Lasso, la que muy
emocionada dio las gracias a los
Leones por su magnAnimo gesto.
La comisi6n de Leones de Bal-
boa estuvo integrada por John
Duda, primer vicepresidente; Ver-
non Dunnel, Jr.; Bill Bright, Jr., ex
president de los Leones de Bal-
boa y Manuel "Mike" Progana.
"Mike" Progana declare que el
Club de Leones de Balboa estA
sumamente agradecido de la co-
munidad resident en Balboa, pues
sin la cooperaci6n que brindaron
los residents a la campafia del
"bast6n blanco" jamAs hubiera sido
possible esas donaciones.

Es verdad que los apagones no
son cosas del pasado y que ocurren
a cada rato, pero ninguna de las
explicaciones que se han dado ilti-
mamente puede compararse con lo
que se describi6 en el PANAMA
CANAL RECORD hace 50 afios. El
informed era del tenor siguiente:
"La interrupci6n en el servicio de
la linea de transmisi6n de 44,000
voltios del Canal de PanamA, que
tuvo lugar durante el mes de mar-
zo, se debi6 a un mono perezoso".
El informed continuaba diciendo
que no content el animalito con
haber saboteado la linea N� 2, fue
descubierto, unas 10 horas des-
pu6s, en una torre, preparAndose a
subir a uno de los cables con carga
el6ctrica de la linea N9 1. El ani-
mal era fuerte, "todavia estaba vi-
vito y coleando, a pesar de que
mostraba quemaduras y estaba
chamuscado en varias parties del
cuerpo, debido a los chispazos".
El escritor sefialaba que dicho in-
cidente podria ser la explicaci6n
de various apagones anteriores.
Otro "delincuente" de ese mes
fue un puerco espin, que fue descu-
bierto por un guardalineas en lo
alto de una torre y sobre un cable
que no tenia carga. AI ser descu-
bierto, el puerco espin corrida por
sobre la linea "en posici6n erecta,
como si estuviera sobre terreno
piano". A continuaci6n, segin el
lenguaje del escritor, "se necesit6
algan tiempo para desalojarlo y
bajarlo de la torre".

Al repasar las viejas ediciones
del PANAMA CANAL RECORD, uno
se encuentra con ciertas cosas que
pueden archivarse bajo el titulo de
"iC6mo Cambian los Tiempos!"
Los mis impresionantes se refieren
al trinsito de buques por el Canal.
El RECORD, inform hace 50 afios,
que en el mes de marzo habian
transitado por el Canal 398 naves.
Era un promedio de 12.84 barcos
diaries. Durante los primeros 9 me-
ses del aio fiscal 1925, el RECOur
inform que habian transitado
3.551 buques comerciales.
Las cifras mAs recientes compi-
ladas por la empresa del Canal de
PanamA muestran un dramatic
contrast. En marzo de este aiio,
transitaron por el Canal de Pana-
mi 1.217 naves de alto bordo, para
un promedio diario de 39.3 barcos
comerciales. El total para el afio
fiscal, hasta marzo, es de 10.168
transitos de buques comerciales de
alto bordo.


Muy diferente a un titulo apa-
recido en reciente edici6n del
SPILLWAY que decia "la Zona del
Canal Impone R6cord de 18 Me-
ses Sin un Solo Caso de Malaria",
es una nota de rutina, aparecida
en la edici6n de mayo de 1925 del
RECORD. Informaba que se habian
producido 59 casos de malaria en
el mes anterior, de los cuales uno
result ser fatal. Dos casos fueron
descubiertos en la ciudad de Pa-
nama, ninguno en Col6n, 17 en la
Zona del Canal y 40 en lugares
situados fuera de las Areas ya sa-
neadas. Siete de las victims eran
empleados del Canal de PanamA,
20 no eran empleados y 32 perte-
necian al Ej6rcito o a la Armada.
Ese mes, las principles causes de
muerte fueron la tuberculosis y la
pulmonia.

chos centros y a las guarderias in-
fantiles escolares. Ellas no s6lo se
preocupan por la educaci6n sanita-
ria de los pequefos, verifican los
problems de su salud, inmunizan,
verifican los abastos de primeros
auxilios y otros asuntos relatives al
bienestar de los nifios, sino que

el estado de salud de los adults

ci6n infantil.
El Centro de Atenci6n Infantil

sia Uni6n de Balboa y bajo la di-
recci6n de la Sra. Nedra Spurlock,

mero que se enfrent6 al problema,
cuando los centros de atenci6n in-
fantil se convirtieron en tema de
preocupaci6n especial. La Sra.
Spurlock inici6 operaciones ese dia
con solo cinco nifios. Actualmente
tiene 40 nifios registrados, con una
asistencia diaria promedio de 20
nifios. La mayoria asiste a base de
un horario o de cuando les es mis
convenient asistir. El centro opera
de las 7 a.m. a las 5 p.m. Los nifios
tienen edades de 1 a 6 afios y la
mayor parte del tiempo juegan y
se entretienen socialmente. Sus ac-
tividades incluyen juegos con blo-
ques, rompecabezas, pinturas, jue-
gos en el agua, entretenciones con
juguetes educativos y son prepara-
dos para la lectura. La Sra. Spur-
lock, cuyo mayor interns es inspi-
rar a los nifios seguridad en si mis-
mos, recibi6 una placa que los pa-
dres de familiar agradecidos le en-
tregaron el dia en que el centro
cumpli6 su primer aniversario.
Otra instalaci6n de atenci6n in-
fantil que ha tenido much ixito
es el Centro Cristiano de Atenci6n
Infantil de Balboa Heights, patro-
cinado por la Iglesia Bautista. Bajo
la direcci6n de la Sra. Leona Lee,
el centro comenz6 el 3 de mayo
con tres niiios. Hoy, la asistencia
fluctuia entire 35 y 40 nifios. Como
centro de atenci6n infantil del tipo
a largo plazo, la instalaci6n opera
en una base de tres categories: por
mes, para los nifios cuyas madres
trabajan de 6:45 a.m. a 4:45 p.m.;
por semana, para los nifios cuyos
padres se encuentran temporalmen-
te sin empleada dom6stica y en
base diaria, para aquellos nifios
que solo asisten durante algunas
horas.
La Sra. Bobbie Ward, de Los
Rios, abriri un centro de atenci6n
infantil que s6lo operarL durante
medio dia, en su residencia, a me-
diados de junior. Tendri capacidad
para seis nifios que serAn atendidos
