Health Benefits Program

Open Season Nov. 14-30

All U.S.-citizen employees enrolled
in plans offered under the Federal
Employees Health Benefits Program
will have an opportunity to change
their enrollment during an open
season scheduled for November
14-30. Eligible employees who are
not enrolled will be able to enroll
during this open season.
Changes enrolled employees may
make are:
From one plan to another;
From one option to another option
in the same or a different plant;
From self only to self and family,
or the reverse.
Brochures for all health benefits
plans have been revised. All have
changed benefits or rates or both. The
new brochures are printed on blue
paper to distinguish them from the
present yellow brochures, which are
obsolete after January 1, 1967.

Before November 14, the Em-
ployee Services Branch, Personnel
Bureau, will have distributed to each
eligible employee an open season in-
structions pamphlet (BRI-41-117) and
brochures of the two Government-
wide plans as well as the brochure for
the Canal Zone Benefit Plan.
Members of employee organiza-
tions which sponsor health benefits
plans (i.e., AFGE) will receive
brochures of the organization's plan
by mail direct from the Civil Service
Any employee who does not re-
ceive the appropriate brochures and
the instructions pamphlet by Novem-
ber 14, should contact the Employee
Services Branch, Personnel Bureau,

Desiderio Sanchez, a modern art
painter residing in Panama, has a

3.6 increase point difference between
July 1965 and August 1966 is an in-
crease of 3.3 percent over the July
1965 CPI of 110.2.
Under the law, cost-of-living in-
creases in annuities become payable
when the current CPI maintains at
least a 3 percent increase over the
base month for 3 months in a row.
The amount of increase is based on
the highest percentage increase over
the base CPI reached in the 3 months.
Cost-of-living annuity increases
become effective the first day of the
third month following the 3-month
period. In this case, if at least a 3 per-
cent increase in the CPI is maintained
for September and October, the
annuity increases will be effective
January 1, 1967.
The earliest possible date they
could be included in annuity checks
would be those of February 1, 1967,
which pay the annuities earned in the
preceding January.
Because the cost-of-living increases
are granted automatically, annuitants
need not write to the Civil Service
Commission to obtain them.

Tetanus Immunization

Effective Preventive

In all the wars before World
War II, tetanus took more lives than
swords, arrows, and bullets. In World
War II, thanks to immunization, there
were only four cases of tetanus among
nearly 2,800,000 wounded.
Immunization is best started early

of childhood. But even adulthood is

treated'with animal fertilizer, in street
dirt, in clothes or on animals. They

A splinter injury, an animal bite, a
thorn prick-any shallow break in the
skin can give them an entry.
In a clean, free-bleeding cut,
germs and spores may be washed out
with the blood. Or if the spores sprout
into bacteria the microorganisms may
be destroyed by the oxygen in the
blood. But if there is little bleeding
or if the spores are insulated by
imbedded dirt, tetanus organisms may
gain a foothold. They thrive in the
absence of oxygen. As they multiply,
the spores liberate a deadly poison
that attacks the nerve centers, causing
spasms and convulsions, some so
severe that victims have been known
to fracture a vertebra.

By Eleanor D. Burnham

In Westviking, Farley Mowat has I
reconstructed the 10th century Norse b
voyages to Greenland and North I
America with little reference to earlier I
literature, other than to the original a
saga sources. He admits that his story I
differs somewhat from other and per- I
haps more scholarly accounts. He s
insists, however, that he has resolved
some imporatnt questions, such as the
degree to which the Celts were in- c
evolved in the westward voyages and l-
the extent of the explorations of Eric t
the Red. Even those scholars who
disagree violently with his theories c
seem to think that he has produced d
a good story. h
A much later, and to us more disas- A
trous, story of daring and courage is I
told in The Search for Amelia Ear-
hart, by Fred Goerner. For this book b
he investigated some of the many
questions which have remained un-
settled since the disappearance of
North America's most famous avia-
trix. Goerner not only pursued all the
many-years-old leads, but went to the
Pacific on his own quest. This began
with a trip to the Marianas and even-
tually included four other visits to
the Pacific. As the result of his inten-
sive detective work, Goerner feels
sure that he has solved the mystery.
Life Styles of Educated Women is
the result of a study by Eli Ginz-
berg, Director of Conservation of
Human Resources at Columbia Uni-
versity. The report utilizes informa-
tion provided by more than 300
women who pursued graduate studies
between 1945 and 1961. Happily,
Ginzberg's reports show that edu-
cated women, contrary to popular
belief, are not discontented with their
lots in life. Many of them successfully

Vol. V, No. 18 Alas de 50 Anos de Servicios Para el Comercio MAundial Viernes 21 de Octubre de 1966



Un anuncio de la Comisi6n de Ser-
vicio Civil dice que se estA notifican-
do a los empleados del Canal de
PanamA que las anualidades de los
empleados Federales jubilados y sus
sobrevivientes que al present estan
en las listas de Jubilaci6n del Servicio
Civil recibiran un aumento debido al
alza en el costo de la vida, en enero
pr6ximo, si el Indice de Precios al
Consumidor es 113.6, o mis alto para
los meses de septiembre y octubre
del present afio.
Los empleados Federales que se
;ubilen el 30 de diciembre o antes,
tambien recibirAn cualquier possible
aumento per alza del costo de la vida,
ademas de un aumento de 1 por
ciento. Este 1 por ciento proviene de
una ley de 1962 que aument6 las
anualidades en escala descendente
desde el 5 por ciento para los que se
jubilaron ese afio, hasta el 1 por
ciento para los que se jubilen en 1966.
Ciento treinta y cinco empleados
del Canal de PanamA estarAn en las
listas de posibles jubilados hasta fines
de este mes. De esa cantidad, 78 son
ciudadanos estadounidenses y 57 no
ciudadanos estadounidenses.
El aumento mensual para aquellos
que se jubilen en 1966, aproximada-
mente de un 3.5 por ciento, serA
efectivo el 19 de enero para los jubi-
lados del Servicio Civil y sus sobre-
El aumento debido al alza en el
costo de la vida no es efectivo todavia.
El Indice de Precios al Consumidor
en agosto de 1966, segfin anuncio de
la Direcci6n de Estadisticas Labora-
les, era de 113.8, en comparaci6n a
110.2 del mes base que fue julio de
1965, que determine la cantidad del
aumento debido al alza del cost de
la vida. El aumento de 3.6 puntos
entire julio de 1965 y agosto de 1966
constitute un aumento de 3.3 por
ciento sobre el Indice de Precios al
Consumidor de julio de 1965, que fue
de 110.2.
Seg6n la ley, los aumentos por alza
en el costo de la vida llegan a ser
pagaderos cuando el Indice de Precios
al Consumidor corriente, mantiene
por lo menos un aumento de 3 por
ciento sobre el mes base durante 3
meses seguides. El aumento se basa
en el alza mAxima del porcentaje

sobre el Indice Base de Precios al
ConsuImidor durante los 3 meses.
El aumento por alza en el cost de
la vida es efectivo el primer dia del
tercer mes que sigue al period de
3 meses. En este caso, si por lo menos,
se mantiene un aumento de 3 por
ciento en el Indice de Precios al Con-
sumidor durante septiembre y octu-
bre. los aumentos en la anualidad
serAn efectivos el 19 de febrero de

La fecha mAs cercana en que esos
aumentos serian incluidos en los che-
ques de anualidades seria el 19 de fe-
brero de 1967, que paga las anualida-
des ganadas durante el mes de enero
Debido a que los aumentos por alza
en el costo de la vida se otorgan auto-
mAticamente, los beneficiaries no ne-
cesitan escribir a la Comisi6n de Ser-
vicio Civil para obtenerlos.

Desde 1945 las administraciones

Arthur Allen, tejedor de canastas, inicia la confecci6n de una.

Arthur Allen Hace sus Canastas

A Orillas del Canal de Panama

Canastas a la orden, en todos los
tamaiios y estilos.
Ello es lo que Arthur Allen, teje-
dor de canastas de 72 afios, ofrece a
sus clients, desde su modest fAbrica
situada sobre la orilla occidental del
Canal de Panama.
La fAbrica, si es que asi puede
Ilamarse, es s6lo una choza escondida
entire la alta hierba que crece cerca
de la carretera que en un tiempo
conducia a las rampas del Ferry
Thatcher. Pero los clients de Allen,
que lo conocieron cuando su taller
estaba a la vera de un camino suma-
mente transitado, siempre lo encuen-
tran y como es un artesano de la vieja
escuela y sus canastas son muy fuer-
tes, siempre tiene gran demand.
Allen, que aprendi6 el oficio cuan-
do nifio en Barbados, su tierra natal,
agradece a esa profesi6n el poderse
sostener durante su vejez.
Vino a la Zona del Canal en 1909
y trabaj6 durante unos pocos afios en
la construcci6n del Canal de Pana-
mil. Despues de la terminaci6n del
Canal tuvo otros trabajos, pero desde
1943, ccmenz6 a tejer canastas a la
orden en un tallercito que hizo al lado
de la carretera.
Cuando el Ferry Thatcher dej6 de
operar y el trafico fue desviado hacia
cl Puente Thatcher Ferry, Allen no
necesit6 mudarse. Sus clients y sus
amigos sabian done encontrarlo y
61 no podia darse el lujo de construir
un nuevo taller y vender las canastas
al precio de antes.
(C6mo las hace? Eso es un secret
professional, pero admite que las hace
con material prima local. Personal-
mente, recoge juncos de los pantanos
y los desmenuza hasta tal punto que
puedan tejerse sin dificultad. Lo inico
que tiene que comprar son los clavos
y tachuelas y los ribetes de mimbre,
todo lo cual lo consigue en PanamA.
Le Ileva un dia hacer una canasta
ordinaria para el mercado o para me-
riendas. En 2 6 3 dias, luego de haber
recogido el material, tiene listo un
cesto grande para ropa.
Sus clients le ]levan generalmente,
un dibuj o model de lo que quieren.
Algunos lo conocen tan bien, que s61o
dejan una nota con lo que quieren y
su oinmbre. Por lo comun, cuando
regrcsan la canasta estal lista.
Allen vive en El Chorrillo, barrio
de la ciudad de PanamA, junto con su
esposa. Dice (ique su fabrica, en elI
lugar done est't, le brinda espacio y
soledad, pero que los trabajos tiene

que llevairselos a casa por la noche,
para que no les pase nada.
dQu6 le parece su profesi6n
como una soluci6n al desempleo en
Allen no cree que seria un oficio
muy popular. Dice que los j6venes
de hboy quieren hacerse ricos nipida-
mente. HIa tenido poco) 'xito en ense-
fiar su profesion a los amigos mais
jovenes y ningun 6xito al tratar de
conseguir un ayudante. No son lo sufi-
cientemente pacientes.
La verdad es que Allen se asombra
de su paciencia en ese trabajo que
require tanto tiempo y meticulosi-
dad. Dice que lo Illena de satisfaecci6n
una canasta bien terminada, pero que
no haria ese trabajo si no fuera por

versidad de los Estados Unidos. Nos

sonales, etc. Agrega mis adelante:
"Estoy muy content con mi trabajo
por la manera sistematizada de traba-
jar y por la precision con que se obtie-
nen los datos. Le agradezco a. la orga-
nizaci6n del Canal la oportunidad que
me ha brindado para desenvolverme
precisamente en el campo que sigo
en la Universidad de Panama, y es-
pero cumplir con todos los requisitos
que se me exijan y prestar toda la
cooperaci6n para el buen desenvolvi-
miento de la Oficina de Personal".

Patricio Blackman, es subjefe oficinista en la Oficina del Maestre de Rada de
la Capitania del Puerto de Balboa. Lleva ya 25 afios continues de servicios
con el Canal de PanamA. Comenz6 en 1940, como mecAnico a cargo del
mantenimiento de la mIquina de lavar platos de lo que en aquel tiempo se
conocia como Hotel Tivoli. Reside en el sector de Rio Abajo de la ciudad
de PanamA. Naci6 en la ciudad de PanamA el 18 de septiembre de 1923 y
sus studios primaries los bizo en la Escuela Rep6blica de El Salvador, N9 1,
en el barrio de El Chorrillo. "Ahora tienen una escuela grande y muy bonita,
con los ultimos adelantos de la pedagogia moderna, dice afiorando sus dias
de escolar, "pero yo recuerdo con veneraci6n a las que fueron mis maestras,
en aquel viejo caser6n de madera donde no existia facilidad alguna. Eran
unas santas mujeres, dedicadas por entero a educarnos y ensefiarnos las bases
del saber humano. La secundaria la hizo en la vieja Escuela de Artes y
Oficios, situada en la Avenida Sur cuando 61 era estudiante. Hace 11 afios
contrajo matrimonio con la Sra. Rebeca M. Urriola de Blackman y Dios ha
bendecido su uni6n con un hijito var6n, Alex Antonio, de 4 auios. "Es el
duefio de la casa". dice Patricio, "pero creo que lo estamos consintiendo
demasiado; estA terrible". A pregunta nuestra, dice: "En la Escuela de Artes
y Oficios aprendi mecinica automotriz y la practiqu6 bas.tante tiempo, pero
una vez me estall6 un motor, dejfindome una mano sumanmente sensible,
por lo que no pude seguir la profesi6n. Ahora la practice nmanteniendo mi
autom6vil, un Pontiac 56, mejor que muchos ultimo model que andan por
esas calls de Dios". Profesa la Religi6n Cat6lica y su iglesia preferida es
la de Santa Ana. Su poblaci6n favorite en el Interior es Las Tablas; el
