each day is turned away. But add
this number to the 75 patients in
the appointment book and the
reason for the heavy workload,
crowding and delays becomes
obvious.
A series of new procedures will
be implemented that should im-
prove service and render more
prompt and appropriate medical
care to this major and largely un-
scheduled group of patients.
Beginning next week, if you
arrive at the Outpatient Clinic with-
out an appointment, you should:
1. Register at the Outpatient
Clinic check-in desk located in the
hospital's main lobby. After you
register, hospital personnel will get
your medical record;
2. Take a seat in the Outpatient
Clinic waiting area. The nurse will

Note Outbreak

OF Measles Here
During the last few weeks there
has been an unusually large num-
ber of cases of measles among Isth-
mian children of all ages. Health
officials advise parents to check
their children's immunization rec-
ords to be sure they have received
measles vaccine.
Through Community Health Cen-
ters on both sides of the Isthmus.
eligible children 6 months or
older are receiving measles vaccine.
When the vaccine is administered
to a child less than 15 months of
age, it is necessary for the child
to receive a booster shot at a later
date.
Measles is a serious disease which
can cause death or serious mental
retardation. It is no longer looked

call you when your medical record
is delivered to her. She will ask
why you have come to the clinic
and about your complaints and
needs.
At this point, it may be possible
for the nurse to take care of your
problem; for instance, if you need
a prescription refilled. You will then
check out at the appointment desk
and your clinic charge will be
cancelled.
If it is necessary that you see a
physician, the nurse will ask you
to wait in the main waiting area
either to be seen by an Outpatient
Clinic physician on a first-come,
first-served basis or by a physician
designated to treat acute minor ill-
nesses. This will allow you to be
seen more rapidly if you are feeling
badly with flu, a head cold, etc.
If your condition warrants more
immediate action, the nurse will
arrange for a physician to see you
right away, or she will refer you
to the Emergency Room.
Under other circumstances, you
may be referred to a specialty
clinic to be seen the same day, to
obtain a routine appointment, or an
urgent appointment. In each case,
the outpatient clinic charge is can-
celled when the nurse makes an
appointment for you to go to a
specialty clinic.
These new procedures are one
more effort to improve the service
in the Outpatient Clinic. Last year,
for example, an extended appoint-
ment program was instituted so
that in the majority of cases a
patient could make an appointment
to see a particular physician.
Since this choice of physicians
is rarely possible for walk-in pa-
tients, if a physician asks you to re-
turn to him, his clinic or to a spe-
cialty clinic, it is important to make
an appointment for that next visit
I before you check out.
This new system, which will be
implemented next week, should not
only provide better and more rapid
care, but should assure that the
truly ill are cared for first.

Doris Burns can say only hello
in seven languages but she smiles
at the world in a universal language
that says "I'm a happy woman."
A small town girl, Doris was born
in Bixby, Okla., and grew up to
marry her childhood sweetheart,
Jean Burns, and travel with him
to most parts of the world.
After graduating from Bixby High
School, Doris entered Oklahoma
State University and received an
Intensive Business Certificate in
2 years.
A few months later, Doris and
Jean were married and she worked
in various secretarial positions to
help pay bills until he received his
Electrical Engineering degree. Then
as his career took them from
Wichita, Kans., to Seattle, Wash.,
to Tulsa, Okla., she also moved
from job to job until 1951 when
their first child was born.
That's when Doris traded office
work for a fulltime job as wife,
mother and traveling companion as
the Burns started the travels that
eventually brought them to the
Canal Zone.
Jean's overseas assignments as a
civilian employee of the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers took them to
Pakistan, Turkey, Germany and
Italy.
And vacations during those fun
years were spent in the Holy Land,
Greece, Kashmir, Spain, Portugal,
Gibraltar, France, Sweden, Den-
mark and Norway.
Finally, in 1969, Doris, Jean and
their two children came to the
Canal Zone and settled down for
what has turned out to be the
longest period they have stayed in
one spot since they left Bixby.
And Doris went back to work.
She was employed in the Police
Division and Locks Division for a
while before being promoted into
the "perfect" job as secretary to the
Marine Director. She says she
thrives on action and it has been
just that-the deadlines, the rush,
the last-minute jobs-that has made
her work so satisfying for the past
7 years.
But it works both ways. If Doris
finds her job and the four Marine
Directors she has worked for to be


Doris Burns


satisfying, they have shown with
their frequent performance awards
that they consider her to be more
than satisfactory.
Doris finishes work every after-
noon and goes home to relax over
a hot stove. She and Jean have
what she calls "international tastes"
and she finds it relaxing to stop
thinking and start cooking the
foreign dishes she learned to pre-
pare when she lived overseas.
Jean, Chief, Specifications and


Estimates Branch in the Engineer-
ing Division, and Doris live in
Ancon. Their son, Scott, 25, holds
a Business Administration degree
from Northeastern State, Tahlequah,
Okla., and is working in Oklahoma
City. A daughter, Laura Lea, 19,
is attending her third semester in
Canal Zone College.
Having found a home in the
tropics, it seems only natural that
the Burns' favorite pastimes are
fishing and boating.


Lt. Gov. Richard L. Hunt, right, presents a Distinguished Service Award
to David S. Rose, Director of Posts until his recent retirement following
40 years of service with the Postal Service in the Canal Zone. As Director
of Posts, Rose initiated many actions which have contributed to the high
efficiency of the Postal Service in the Canal Zone.

in Madrid and Jos6 TomAs in Ali-
cante.

C.Z. United Way To Sponsor

Exhibitions by Softball King


Canal Zone United Way will
sponsor the "King and His Court"
the world-famous softball team
from California in three exhibitions
next month.
The exhibitions will be at 7 p.m.,
February 15, in Mount Hope Sta-
dium and 7:30 p.m., February 16
and 17 at Balboa Stadium.
The team is composed of only
four players and is led by the
"King," pitcher Eddie Feigner, one
of the greatest softball pitchers.
The King and His Court will play
the best 9-man fast pitch softball
teams that can be assembled from
Panama and the Canal Zone, both
civilian and military.

vaccine that can prevent the disease
if given at the proper age. As more
experience has been gained over
the last 12 years with the use of
the vaccine, it has been found
by virologists that the most effec-
tive age at which to administer
the vaccine is 15 months. Pre-
viously, it was felt that children
should receive it at 9 months of
age. This explains why some chil-
dren who have been immunized
against measles are now having the
disease.
Parents who are uncertain
whether or not their children are
protected should consult the med-
ical or nursing personnel at the
Community Health Center or mil-
itary dispensary.

Ili~~


A macabre acting assignment was
given to Alex Tiniacos, who in the
Cristobal High School production
of "Arsenic and Old Lace," will
be portraying not one, but two,
corpses.
In the hilarious comedy about
two lovable old ladies in Brooklyn
whose cellar is full of old men who
have succumbed to their arsenic-
flavored elderberry wine, Alex will
play one of Abby and Martha
Brewster's victims, Mr. Hoskins.
The actor will double as Mr. Spe-
nalzo, one of the victims of the
Brewster sisters' equally lethal, but
not so lovable, brother Jonathan.
The corpses are called upon to
appear at different times in the
play's action and the stage-lights
are dimmed during both corpses'
appearances, so Alex will be able
to effect the "doubling" easily
enough. But the punishment the
actor will take is something else,
since he will be dragged about the
stage, shoved in and pulled out
of a window seat, pushed through
a window, and carried into the
cellar in the course of an evening.
Production dates are February 10,
11, 12 and 13. The curtain opens
at 8 p.m. Tickets may be purchased
at the door of the CHS Auditorium.

Theatre Guild To Hold
Tryouts Jan. 31, Feb. 1
The Theatre Guild will hold try-
outs for its next production, "Same
Time, Next Year," on Monday and
Tuesday, January 31 and Feb-
ruary 1, at 7:30 p.m.
The romantic comedy is about an
adulterous love affair that takes
place only once a year during a
25-year period. There are parts for
one male and a female. Backstage
help is welcomed.
This current Broadway hit is di-
rected by Donald Lohse. For more
information, call 52-6580 or 5242.

Paraiso Credit Union
The Paraiso Federal Credit Union
No. 5857 will hold its annual meet-
ing at 7:30 p.m., tonight, at the

La Clinica del Gorgas


Adopta Nuevo Sistema


De los casi 150 pacientes que
entran diariamente a la Clinica de
Consulta General del Hospital Gor-
gas, ninguno se va sin que lo atien-
dan. Y, si a este numero ek gregan
los 75 pacientes que tinen citas,
se hace evidence por qu6 hay tanto
trabajo y tantos retrasos.
Esta en vias de ponerse en prac-
tica una series de nuevos procedi-
mientos para mejorar el servicio
y proporcionar una mejor y mas
rapida atenci6n m6dica a este gran
nrmero de pacientes.
Si a principios de la semana en-
trante usted tiene que ir a la Cli-
nica de Consulta General sin cita,
debera hacer lo siguiente:
1. Anunciarse en la recepci6n
que esta en la sala principal de es-
pera del hospital. Una vez used se


Advierten Sobre

Possible Brote

De Sarampion
Durante las iltimas semanas se
ha registrado un gran n6mero de
casos de sarampi6n entire nifios de
todas las edades en el Istmo. Las
autoridades de salubridad reco-
miendan que los padres de familiar
revisen las tarjetas de vacunaci6n
de sus hijos para asegurarse de que
est6n vacunados contra el saram-
pion.
Esta vacuna esta siendo adminis-
trada a nifios de 6 meses o mayors
en los Centros de Salud de la Co-
munidad en ambos sectors del Ist-
mo. Cuando la vacuna se adminis-
tra a nifios menores de 15 meses
de edad, es necesario reforzarla
posteriormente.
El sarampi6n es una enfermedad
de seriedad que puede ser mortal
o causar graves darios cerebrales.
Ya no se le consider como "una
de esas enfermedades que le da
a todos los nifios" desde que hay
una vacuna para prevenirla si se
administra a la debida edad. Du-
rante los 12 afios de experiencia
con la vacuna, los vir6logos han
podido determinar que la mejor
edad para administrarla es a los
15 meses. Anteriormente se daba
a los 9 mess y es por eso que al-
(Continua en la pdgina 4)


haya anunciado, el personal encar-
gado buscara su cuadricula m6dica.
2. Tome asiento y espere. La en-
fermera lo lamara cuando ella haya
recibido su cuadricula. Entonces le
preguntara el motivo de su visit
a la Clinica y tomarA detalles al
respect.
Posiblemente la enfermera pueda
tender su problema, por ejemplo,
si lo que usted necesita es renovar
una receta. Luego, usted debera ir
nuevamente a la recepci6n para
que alli le anulen el cargo de la
clinic.
Si se determine que es necesario
que usted se vea con un m6dico,
la enfermera le pedirA que espere
en la sala principal para que lo
atienda un doctor de la Clinica de
Consulta General en orden de lle-
gada de pacientes, u otro medico
designado especialmente para el
tratamiento de afecciones agudas
secundarias. Asi usted sera atendido
con mayor rapidez si esta pade-
ciendo de influenza, resfriado, etc.
Si su condici6n require atenci6n
mas inmediata, la enfermera hara
arreglos para que lo atiendan en-
seguida, o lo enviara al Cuarto de
Urgencia.
En otros casos, usted podrA ser
enviado a una clinic especializada
para que lo atiendan el mismo dia,
le den una cita de rutina o una cita
de emergencia. En cada uno de
estos casos, se le anulara el cargo
de la clinic de consult general
cuando la enfermera le haga cita
para ir a la clinic especializada.
Estos nuevos procedimientos son
un esfuerzo encaminado a mejorar
los servicios que presta la Clinica
de Consulta General.
El afio pasado, por ejemplo, se
instituy6 el program de citas para
que en la mayoria de los casos el
paciente pudiera verse con el m6-
dico de su preferencia.
Como en las consultas generals
es dificil volver a ver al mismo
medico si 6ste le pide que regrese
a verlo a 61 a la clinic, o a la cli-
nica especializada, es important
que usted haga su pr6xima cita
antes de retirarse de la clinic.
Este nuevo sistema, que se pon-
dra en prActica la semana entrante,
no s6lo permitirA mejorar y acele-
rar la atencion medica sino que
asegurara que los pacientes mas
enfermos sean atendidos primero.

dadosa revision y evaluaci6n efec-

ci6n para continuar utilizando di-
cha nave, el Comit6 observ6 que
"la operaci6n del SS Cristdbal ha
sido revisada en muchas ocasiones
en afios recientes y, peri6dicamente,
se le han incorporado una series de
mejoras. Ello ha resultado en un
barco convenient y bien conserva-
do que proporciona un servicio
esencial en apoyo de las funciones
de la empresa del Canal y las enti-
dades militares que se encuentran
en la Zona del Canal".
Por todo, la Junta Directiva

Doris Burns s6lo sabe decir
"hola" en siete idiomas, pero en el
lenguaje universal de su sonrisa
parece estar diciendo "soy una
mujer feliz".
Es oriunda de un pueblecito Ila-
inado Bixby en Oklahoma. Alli cre-
ci6 y se cas6 con su enamorado de
la infancia Jean Burns, con quien
luego ha Ilegado a recorrer la ma-
yor parte del mundo.
Despu6s de graduarse de la Es-
cuela Secundaria de Bixby, Doris
entr6 a la Universidad del Estado
de Oklahoma y al cabo de 2 afios
recibi6 un Certificado de Estudios
Intensivos en Comercio.
Unos meses despu6s, Doris y
Jean se casaron. Ella trabaj6 en
various puestos como secretaria para
ayudar a pagar los gastos haska
que 61 se gradu6 de Ingenieria
El1ctrica. Luego, mientras la pro-
fesi6n de Jean los llevaba de Wi-
chita, Kansas a Seattle, Washing-
ton, a Tulsa, Oklahoma, Doris si-
gui6 cambiando de un trabajo a
otro, hasta 1951 cuando naci6 su
primer hijo.
Fue entonces cuando decidi6 de-
dicar todo su tiempo a trabajar
como esposa, madre de familiar y
compafiera de viajes, durante las
travesias que eventualmente tra-
jeron a los Burns a la Zona del
Canal.
Como empleado civil del Cuerpo
de Ingenieros del Ej6rcito de los
Estados Unidos en ultramar, Jean
viaj6 con Doris a Pakistan, Turquia,
Alemania e Italia.
Durante esos divertidos afios, pa-
saban sus vacaciones en Tierra
Santa, Grecia, Kashmir, Espafia,
Portugal, Gibraltar, Francia, Suecia,
Dinamarca y Noruega.
Finalmente en 1959, Doris, Jean
y sus dos hijos vinieron a la Zona
del Canal, donde se han quedado,
Ilegando 6ste a ser el period mAs
largo que hayan permanecido en
un solo lugar desde que salieron
de Bixby.
Y aqui Doris regres6 a trabajar.
Estuvo empleada durante algin
tiempo cn la Divisi6n de Policia
y en la Divisi6n de Esclusas antes
de ser ascendida al cargo "per-
fecto" de secretaria del Director de
Marina. Ella es muy active y su
dinamismo "se alimenta" cuando se
encuentra en carrera con el reloj,
en apuros o trabajos de 6ltima hora,
lo cual le produce la gran satisfac-
ci6n que siente por su trabajo desde
hace 7 afios.
Pero esto tambi6n funciona al
rev6s pues asi como Doris esta sa-
tisfecha con su trabajo y con los
cuatro Directores de Marina de
quienes ha sido secretariat, ellos
tambi6n han demostrado su compla-
cencia con el trabajo de ella, dis-


tingui6ndola frecuentemente con
premios por su desempefio.
Al terminar su trabajo por las
tardes, Doris se va a su casa a "des-
cansar" frente a la cocina. Ella y
Jean tienen lo que ella denomina
"gustos internacionales" y result
relajante para ella cocinar los plati-
llos de tierras lejanas que aprendi6
a preparar cuando vivi6 en ultramar.
Doris y Jean, que es Jefe del
Ramo de Especificaciones y CAlcu-
los de la Divisi6n de Ingenieria,


Burns

viven en Anc6n. Su hijo Scott tiene
25 afios, es graduado en Adminis-
traci6n de Negocios de la Univer-
sidad Northeastern State, de Tah-
lequah, Oklahoma y trabaja en
Oklahoma City. Su hija Laura Lea,
de 19 afios cursa su tercer. semes-
tre en la Universidad de la Zona
del Canal.
Habi6ndose radicado en el tr6-
pico, es natural que el pasatiempo
favorite de los Burns sea la pesca
y el deporte de lanchas.


El Vicegobernador Richard L. Hunt, a la derecha, entrega un Premio por
Servicio Distinguido a David S. Rose, quien fuera Director de Correos
hasta hace poco cuando se jubil6 tras 40 afios con el Servicio de Correos
en la Zona del Canal. Rose fue autor de numerosas medidas que han
aumentado la eficiencia del Servicio de Correos en la Zona del Canal.

dos simpAticas viejitas en Brooklyn

cadiveres de unos cuantos viejitos
que tuvieron la desdicha de probar

Puesto que los cadaveres apare-
cen separadamente en escena y a
media luz, Alex no tendri problema
en su representaci6n de los dos pa-
peles. Sin embargo, tendra que
aguantarse un trato algo brusco,
ya que seri arrastrado por todo el
scenario, metido y sacado de un
bail-asiento, empujado por una
ventana y cargado al s6tano todas
las noches durante la presentaci6n
de la obra.
Las funciones estin programadas
