Brig. Gen. Parker

Is Nominated for

Major General
Brig. Gen. David S. Parker, who
was for more than 2 years Lieutenant
Governor of the Canal Zone, has
been nominated by President John-
son for temporary promotion to
major general.
General Parker arrived on the
Isthmus as Lieutenant Governor of
the Canal Zone in April 1963 and
left in June 1965 for his new assign-
ment as Division Engineer, U.S.
Army Engineer Division, North
Atlantic, New York City. On an
earlier tour here General Parker
served as Military Assistant to the
Governor of the Canal Zone from
1952 to 1954.
After being graduated from the
United States Military Academy at
West Point in 1940, General Parker
served on the staffs of both Adm.
Chester Nimitz and Gen. Douglas
MacArthur during World War II.
He was with the Army of Occupation
in Japan for 3 years, and received a
master's degree in civil engineering
from the University of California in
1949. He served as instructor in
military topography at West Point
before coming to the Canal Zone on
his first tour of duty.
On June 1 of this year General
Parker was transferred to Washing-
ton as Director, Force Planning and
Analysis, Office of the Chief of Staff.



On Isthmus
Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr.,
who came to the Isthmus in Feb-
ruary 1962 for what was to have
been a 4-year assignment, will
continue with his duties here. The
Governor agreed to remain at his
post following a request made by
President Johnson. No specific
time limit has been established
for Governor Fleming's continued
tenure as head of the Panama
Canal organization.
Governor Fleming has the dis-
tinction of serving longer than
any other governor since the days
of Canal builder George W.
Goethals. Goethals came to the
Isthmus in 1907 as chief engineer
and Isthmian Canal Commission
Chairman, and served as Governor
from 1914 to 1917.

Ranking Pi

The Canal Zone College will make
a further advance in its continuing
growth as a collegiate institution
with the establishment of an aca-
demic ranking program for the fac-
ulty at the beginning of the coming
school year.
The program will serve as an
incentive to all members of the
faculty to strengthen their academic
and professional background. Under
this program, teachers will be classi-
fied as instructor, assistant professor,
associate professor, and professor.
Also, they will receive additional
compensation as they progress to
higher ranks.
Under the present system, all
Canal Zone College teachers are
classified as instructor regardless of
their educational background or
Ranks above instructor can be
attained by teachers who continued
their graduate studies beyond the
level of Master of Arts, the minimum
requirement for employment on the
college faculty. To be eligible for
the rank of assistant professor, a
teacher must have a degree of
Master of Arts plus 30 semester
graduate credits, with 40 semester
credits in his major and 18 semester
credits in professional courses.
Eligibility for the ranks of asso-
ciate professor and professor requires
a Doctor's degree with 60 semester
credits in his major and 18 semester
credits in professional courses.
In addition, certain other require-
ments of teacher experience, college
service, and other prerequisites pro-
vided for in the program must be
met for all ranks above instructor.
A need for an academic ranking
program was recognized in 1962 by
the late Mr. Subert Turbyfill, then
president of the newly-formed Canal
Zone Chapter of the American Asso-
ciation of University Professors.
Mr. Turbyfill, who retired in 1963
and died the same year, submitted
the initial proposal for adoption of
the ranking program.

Increased health insurance bene-
fits are now being enjoyed by U.S.-
citizen Federal employees in the
Canal Zone as the result of the
amendments to the Federal Em-
ployees Health Benefits Act included
in the recently approved Federal
Salary and Fringe Benefits Act.
The three important changes,
which became effective July 31,
were extension of health benefits
coverage for children of employees
up to the maximum age of 22; in-
crease in the amount the Govern-
ment contributes to health benefits
payments and continuance of health
benefits coverage for employees
who are on approved leave without
pay for the purpose of serving an
employee organization.
Information and procedures on
continued coverage for employees on
leave without pay while serving in
an employee organization, will be
published at a later date.
Meanwhile, the following infor-
mation concerning the other amend-
ments has been issued by the
Employee Services Branch of the
Personnel Bureau.
New Definition of "Family Member"
The amendment raises the maxi-
mum age limit for children from
age 21 to age 22. The definition of
"family member" for purposes of
health benefits coverage now in-
cludes "any unmarried child (1)
under the age of 22 years (including
(A) an adopted child, and (B) a step-
child, foster child, or recognized
natural child who lives with the em-
ployee or annuitant in a regular
parent-child relationship), or (2) re-
gardless of age who is incapable of
self-support because of mental or
physical incapacity that existed prior
to his reaching the age of 22 years."
(Note that the child must be un-
married but need not be a student.)
Effective Date of Coverage
Children between ages 21 and 22
are automatically covered under an
employee's self and family enroll-
ment as of July 31, 1966. Claims
for covered medical expenses in-
curred by such children" on or after
this effective date will be honored

By Eleanor D. Burnham

October the First Is Too Late is
the latest science fiction by Fred
Hoyle. In this latter-day "Time Ma-
chine" tale, solar beams have played
havoc with time on earth. World
War I is raging in Europe, England
is in the 1960's and Greece is in its
golden age. Professor Hoyle in his
more formal moments is a fellow of
St. John's College, Cambridge, and
author of "The Nature of the Uni-
verse and "Frontiers of Astronomy."
In A Little Love, A Little Learn-
ing Nina Bawden tells a delightful
story of life in a London suburb as
seen through the eyes of a 12 year-
old-girl. According to Punch, "it is
a work of such radiant vitality that
the people walk off the pages and
the book becomes part of our being."
To a United States Southerner the
book is faintly reminiscent of the re-
cent classic, "To Kill a Mockinbird."
Footsteps on the Stairs by Jean
Potts is a who-dun-it in every sense
of the word. This is a short story
written in dialogue and is addressed
to the questions: Who Killed Enid?
and Could it have been her husband?
(who is already suspected of killing
his first wife). Only the reader can
tell for sure.
In The Fine Art of Hypochondria
the author, Goodman Ace "claims
no minor miracles" for curing his
friends-"only major ones." His pre-
scription is: if we inject a spot of
humor into our imaginary ailments



U.S.-citizen employees of the
Federal Government have the right
to participate in numerous types of
political activities. There are, how-
ever, some which they are not
allowed to engage in.

or handle political contributions nor
may they sell or solicit sale of
political dinner tickets. Neither may
they distribute campaign literature

although he warns that their health
is probably only in their minds.
1812 was compiled, edited, and
translated by Antony Brett-James
and is an anthology of eye-witness
accounts dealing with Napoleon's
assault on Russia and his devasting
defeat. Many of the witnesses were
major participants in the campaign.
Brett-James is an English historian
who has written widely on the
Napoleonic Wars.

E. Kiernan

Honored by


A group of non-U.S.-citizen em-
ployees of the Pacific Locks, many
of whom have worked with Emmett
0. Kiernan during most of his 27
years of Canal service, were hosts
at a farewell party given at the
Miraflores Locks theater last week.
Kiernan, presently acting super-
intendent of the Pacific Locks, will
retire from the Canal at the end of
More than 100 workers attended
the affair, which was highlighted by
the presentation of an engraved gold
belt buckle and a leather belt. The
gift was presented on behalf of the
employees by Truman Hoenke,
superintendent of the Locks Divi-
sion. Also present as guests were
Mrs. Kiernan and their daughter
Berta; Capt. M. J. Prince, Marine
director and several Marine Bureau
and Locks Division officials.
Arnold Reid, chairman of the com-
mittee in charge of the party,
assisted by Mortimer Scantlebury,
secretary, acted as master of cere-
Kiernan was honored earlier in
the week when Captain Prince pres-
ented him with a superior service
award in an informal ceremony in
the Marine Director's office at
Balboa Heights.
Present were Walter Dryja,
assistant to the Marine Director,
Hoenke; John F. Paterson, assistant
chief of the Locks Division; Capt.
Richard C. Sergeant, Balboa Port
Captain; and Capt. Ernest B.
Rainier, Cristobal Port Captain.
The award, the second Kiernan
has received for superior service in
the past 2 years, was accompanied
by a check for $150. The certificate
said in part that he was being given
the award for his exceptional ability
in the electrical field, his sound
judgment, broad overall understand-
ing of locks operation and mainte-
nance problems and his outstanding
ability in the field of employee
management relations.
Kiernan has been with the Canal
since 1939 and with the Locks Divi-
sion since 1940. He has held the
positions of lock operator, leader
lock operator, control house oper-
ator, lockmaster and, since 1962,
electrical supervisor of the Pacific
Locks. He has been acting super-
intendent of the Pacific Locks for
the past 2 months.

Letters of commendation and a
sincere "well done" have been re-
ceived by the Marine Bureau, from
Adm. R. C. Johnson, Commandant
of the 15th Naval District, and from
the Navy's Industrial Manager for
the outstanding manner in which the
Panama Canal Industrial Division is
supporting the Navy's efforts in the
Military Assistance Program.
The letter from Admiral Johnson,
directed to Gov. Robert J. Flem-
ing, Jr., accompanied one to the
Marine Director from L. B. Ashley,
Civilian Assistant to the Navy In-
dustrial Manager expressing appre-
ciation of the Industrial Manager for
the manner in which the Canal's In-
dustrial Division had accomplished
the overhaul of the Uruguayan naval
ship RAU Artigas.
Overhaul of the Artigas was com-
pleted recently in the Industrial
Division Yard and Dry Dock in Cris-
tobal by Industrial Division forces.
"This is but another example of
the fine spirit of cooperation and
mutual support which has always
existed between the Panama Canal
and the Navy and constitutes
dynamic evidence of the dedicated
resolve of all elements of the U.S.
Government to assist our sister
American Republics," Admiral John-
son said in his letter to Governor
The Navy's Industrial Manager
mentioned that this was the first time
a foreign naval vessel had been over-
hauled in the Canal Zone under the
Military Assistance Program and
praised the cooperation throughout
the advance planning on the part of
Captain Prince and Maurice B.
Nickel, Shipyard Superintendent as
well as the outstanding performance
of the Industrial Division shops
during the overhaul.
Worthy of special mention, he
said, were the performance of Julius
Grigore, Jr., Assistant Chief of the
Industrial Division and N. A.
Phillips, Planner and Estimator, who
were assigned as special project
managers for the overhaul.
The letter reported that on return
to home port at Montevideo, Uru-
guay, the Commanding Officer of the
Artigas had nothing but praise for
all those connected with the overhaul
of his ship.

charges will be allowed, effective

Child Incapable of Self-Support.
A child who is incapable of self-
support but was not previously
eligible for coverage because his
mental or physical incapacity did not
exist prior to attaining age 21, may
be eligible under the amendment if
the incapacity existed prior to
attaining age 22. In such a case, the
usual medical certificate must be
submitted as evidence of the child's
Notification to Carriers
An employee who is enrolled in
either of the Government-wide
plans or in any of the employee
organization plans need not notify
his plan of a child who qualifies as
a family member under Public Law
89-504 unless the Plan asks the em-
ployee to do so. These plans ordi-
narily determine a child's eligibility
as a family member at the time a
claim for the child arises.
Converted Contracts for Children
Between 21 and 22
An employee who has a child
between 21 and 22 for whom he has
purchased a nongroup contract
should immediately get in touch with
his plan to arrange for the cancella-
tion of the nongroup contract and
for refund of any excess premium
paid for the conversion. When the
child reaches 22 and his group
coverage as a family member ter-
minates, he will have a new 31-day
temporary extension of coverage
during which he may again convert
to a nongroup contract.
Change from Self Only to Self and
An event which adds to the num-
ber of eligible family members is
considered a change in family status
for health benefits purposes. The
regulations permit an employee who
has such a change in family status
to change his enrollment from self
only to self and family within 60
days after the change in family
status. Therefore, an employee en-
rolled for self only who has a child
who becomes eligible for coverage
because of this amendment, may
now change to a self and family
Amount of Increase
The basic biweekly Government
contribution is increased for most
enrollees to a maximum $1.68 for
self only enrollment and $4.10 for
a self and family enrollment. How-
ever, if an employee is enrolled in
a plan for which the biweekly sub-
scription charge is less than twice
these respective amounts, the Gov-
ernment contribution may not ex-
ceed 50 percent of the subscription

de Harvard y Profesor de la misma universidad, de Cambridge, Massachu-
