Hospital offers food preparation advice Any organization, planning meals for public or group consumption, may con- tact the Hospital Preventive Medicine Section at 4109 for an appointment, to obtain recommendations concerning food preparation, handling and serv- ing, according to a Dispensary spokes- man. The following foods are most often found to be the cause of food poisoning: Any type of salad, containing raw eggs, milk, milk products, salad dressing and mayonnaise. The foods which fall into these cat- egories usually are potato salad, ma- caroni salad, egg salad, ham salad, tuna fish salad and plain sliced ham. These foods are normally served cold and, once prepared, such items must be kept chilled at 40 degrees Fahrenheit. No food should be served after it has been set out for three hours at room temperature, including preparation time. In other words, if food is normally served cold, keep those foods at 40 de- grees Fahrenheit or below without freez- ing; and, those foods normally served hot, keep those at 140 degrees Fahren- heit or above until served. Using these precautions will great- ly lower the possibility of causing one individual or many people to suffer the agonies of food poisoning. Sept. 14, 1962.

Dispensary urges dependents' records filed early According to Senior Medical Officer Captain (Dr.) R.J. Trettel, personnel arriving for duty in Iceland, who have carried their dependents' records with them should turn these records in at the Hospital as soon as possible. They should not wait until the first time a family member requires medical atten- tion. This will prevent the loss or misplacing of these important documents and assist the Hospital in providing better service. Refractions for dependents can no longer be provided at the Hospital. In the future, refractions at the Base Hos- pital can only be provided to active du- ty personnel. Routine optometric services, includ- ing refractions, corrective lens and contact lens for dependents are not CHAMPUS benefits. Routine ophthalmologic care, that is, treatment other than eye refractions, remains available to dependents at the Hospital. The Hospital appointment desk number is 3235, so please make a note in your telephone book. Appointments can be made at this number Monday through Fri- day, between 8 a.m. and noon and 1 to 5 p.m. For those dependents who request this service, the Hospital will make appoint- ments with the consulting ophthalmolo- gist at his office in Reykjavik. To •make an appointment call Aviation Medi- cine at 3315. Patients requiring a return appoint- ment in a month or less are urged to do so in person before leaving the Hospi- tal. Waiting to make an appointment until a few days before the return visit is due may result in an unnecessary delay because all appointments may be already filled.

March weather based on current outlook Climatological records indicate that Keflavik's weather during March has changed little from the weather as ex- perienced during February. Based on recent trends, the contin- ued general outlook for March includes mild weather patterns which have existed this winter. March is the time of the vernal equni- nox—the time when the sun crosses the plane of the Earth's equator. This nor- mally occurs about the third week of the month and it is then that all over the Earth night and day are equal length. In the northern hemisphere, the days become longer than the nights after this equinox and, as the sun rises higher above the horizon, the seasonal warm- ing trend continues. AF Sgt. recognized Master Sergeant Ronald Elllngs- worth, Detachment 360, recently was awarded the Air Force Commendation Medal for outstanding service during his previous assignment with Air Force Systems Command.
