Scott Jon Williams isn't hiding from anybody under this boat. It-obviously-
has a "see through" bottom. Topside, awaiting his return from a dive, is
Barbara Hopkins. Both are Canal Zone College students.

A "See Through" Boat??!!


There's a new look (through the
bottom) on the Isthmus in the form
of the whimsically named ICU2, a
boat with a Y4-inch thick, high impact
plastic bottom.
It's owned by Richard A. Williams
of Balboa, Chief, Southern Sanitation
Area, of the Sanitation Division. In
addition to use for family fun, which
it's already providing, he also plans
to put it in service to transport visiting
VIPs to the manatee lagoon on the
Chagres near Gamboa.
The "Glasshopper" moves along
well with a 3% horsepower motor and
will plane with a 9% horsepower job.
It's truly unsinkable, for the foam
flotation inside the top deck will float
350 pounds and keep occupants above
water even when the hull is comple-
tely flooded.

Late Palo Seco

Superintendent

To Be Honored
Dedication ceremonies will be held
at Palo Seco Hospital Monday, De-
cember 4, at 10 a.m., honoring the
late Dr. Ezra Hurwitz, who was Palo
Seco superintendent from 1928 until
1961.
Dr. Hurwitz, a tireless and devoted
worker and humanitarian, spent most
of his adult lifetime ministering to the
medical needs of patients suffering
from the age-old scourge of leprosy.
Recognizing Dr. Hurwitz's dedi-
cated service to Palo Seco and the
Panama Canal organization, the road
leading to the hospital will be re-
named Dr. Ezra Hurwitz Road. Mrs.
Aida Hurwitz, widow of Dr. Hurwitz,
on behalf of Gov. W. P. Lebcer, has
consented to unveil a plaque dedi-
cated to Dr. Hurwitz and his efforts
on behalf of his patients.


make it virtually untipable and it's
affected little by sudden shifts of
weight from side to side. Weight is
only 125 pounds. Nine feet long and
17 inches in depth, it can easily be
handled by two people, and trans-
ported by car-top carrier.
Visibility of fish and other marine
life through the bottom is excellent,
Williams reports, unless there's too
much water turbulence. The bottom
has moulded-in runners to protect it
from scratching.

Big Paraiso Yule

Event Is Planned
Another big Christmas celebration
is planned for Paraiso this year, ac-
cording to George V. Richards, Civic
Council president.
Harold Williams, who served as
chairman of the committee in charge
last year, again heads the group.
An estimated 1,000 youngsters will
be given toys and goodies at a commu-
nity Christmas Treat for elementary
schoolage children. For the adults,
a free public concert with instru-
mental music, choral groups, and
other vocal numbers is planned.

Despedida Set Dec. 11
There will be a cocktail-buffet des-
pedida in the Roosevelt Room of the
Tivoli Guest House from 7 to 9 p.m.,
Monday, December 11, honoring Dr.
Donald H. Robinson. Tickets may be
obtained from Mrs. Jean Dombrow-
sky, Dr. Andries De Boer, and Wil-
liam T. Marr; telephone: Balboa 4295.

See Page 4

statement you'll receive starting
with the first pay day in 1968-plus
an explanation of the changes.


WITH DRY SEASON'S ARRIVAL:


Power Use Cutback Forecast


Demands for water to sustain the
large volume of shipping, and to
maintain high lake levels required for
deep-draft vessels, will necessitate the
shutdown of the Gatun Hydroelectric
Station during the coming dry season
to save the water which would other-
wise be lost in the generation of
electric power.
This reduction of generating ca-
pacity will be particularly serious
unless all power users make voluntary
load reductions during periods of
heaviest loads.
The Electrical Division, with the
cooperation of all divisions and bu-
reaus in the Panama Canal organiza-
tion and the military services, is spon-
soring a voluntary conservation pro-
gram aimed at paring electrical power
use to an acceptable level.
Measures suggested in offices,
shops, and other facilities are:
Turn off all entry and hallway
lights.
Turn off all room lights during
lunch periods and when closing for
the day. It has been suggested that


each agency appoint monitors to
insure that this is done.
Turn off all room-type air condi-
tioners during lunch periods and at
quitting time. Again, a monitor would
be helpful.
Survey work space to be sure that
areas which don't need it are not
being lighted and cooled.
Officials are hopeful that a volun-
tary conservation program will pro-
duce the savings desired and enlist
the assistance of every employee. If
this program is not sufficient, how-
ever, arbitrary reductions will have
to be made. These might include:
1. Arbitrary reductions in air
conditioning, both in offices and
in quarters.
2. Elimination of service com-
pletely for definite periods dur-
ing the day.
Occupants of PanCanal housing
can help in a real way and at the same
time save themselves money. Sug-
gestions here include:
Train yourselves, children, and
(Continued on p. 3)


Increased transits of ships mean
more lockages. More lockages mean
higher electric power demands.
So do more air conditioners, more
waffle irons, electric irons, and dozens
of other electrical appliances.
One new steam generating plant is
to be in operation early in 1969.
Another new one is to be in operation
in late 1970. These will alleviate the
possible shortage of electric power
in the Canal Zone, but meanwhile all
power users are urged to conserve
electricity.
Col. James A. Betts, Engineering
and Construction Director, says pros-
pects are that the power system will
be unable to meet electrical loads in
the dry season beginning next month
unless all power customers reduce
consumption by about 15 percent
during the peak load period-from 9
a.m. to 9 p.m. on regular workdays.
Curtailment in homes is especially
important from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.,
when the absolute peak normally
occurs.
Ever-increasing power usage, par-
ticularly for air conditioning, is put-
ting a severe strain on the power sys-
tem's ability to meet the load require-
ments. Aggravating this condition has
been the unpredictable upsurge of
ship traffic through the Canal result-
ing from the increase of shipments to
Vietnam and the closing of the Suez
Canal.


Health Benefit

Plan Changes

Are Announced
Benefit changes (most of them
minor) will be made in many of the
health benefit plans, and some plans
will increase their premiums for the
contract term which begins in
January 1968.
To inform you of the changes, if
any, in your plan, the Civil Service
Commission has prepared Pamphlet
BRI 41-117, Information About Plan
Changes Effective January 1968,
which will be distributed to all em-
ployees around the end of the year.
If the premium of your plan is
being increased, the effective date for
the increased deductions from your
salary will be January 14, 1968. Rate
increases are necessary primarily
because of increasing costs of hos-
pital and medical care and, in some
plans, because of needed improve-
ments in benefits.

School Evaluation

To Start Nov. 29
Evaluation of the Latin American
schools in the Canal Zone by a visiting
committee of prominent educators
from the Republic of Panama will
begin November 29. This will be the
third evaluation by Panama educators.
The evaluation will be conducted
by Rafael Moscote, Dean of the Uni-
versity of Panama; Victor G6mez, Di-
rector of the Department of Educa-
tion of the University of Panama; Te-
mistocles CUspedes, now retired,
former head of the Technical Services
Section of the Ministry of Education
in Panama, and Luis Paniza, Director
of Technical Vocational Education in
the Panama Ministry of Education.


The Panama Canal Fire Division
will participate in activities marking
the 80th Anniversary of the Panama
Fire Department from November 22
to December 1.
The Fire Division's role in the pro-
gram commemorating the anniversary
and celebration of the Fourth Con-
gress of the Confederation of Fire
Departments of Central America and
the First Seminary of the Central
American Fire Departments begins
Sunday, November 26, at 9:30 a.m.,
when a bus leaves the Panama Cen-
tral Fire Station and transports bom-
beros to the Canal Zone Fire College
in Rodman.
Here there will be a special 2-hour


program on demonstrations in rescue,
fire extinguishing tactics with high
expansion foam and with dry purple
"K" chemical powder, and exercises.
After a luncheon and a tour of
Miraflores Locks, the group will be
taken on a tour of places of interest in
the Canal Zone.
Monday, November 27, the bom-
heros will board the Panama Canal
launch Las Cruces at 11:30 a.m. for
a partial transit of the Canal and
luncheon aboard hosted by the Pan-
ama Canal Fire Division. In the
evening, the Fire Division will par-
ticipate in a parade of fire equipment
with the Panama Fire Department in
Panama City.

"The Corn Is Green" may be the title of one of the books carried by the girl
who looks like a studious farmerette pausing in her research to check on
progress of the corn crop. Appearances are deceptive, however. The studious
farmerette is really Miss Janice Spencer of Balboa, library aid at the Canal
Zone Library. The corn "crop" consists of a 7-foot corn stalk bearing two
ears of corn, complete with silky tassels, that mysteriously grew in the center
of a flower bed in front of the Canal Zone's busy Civil Affairs Building, Ancon.

Panama Canal pilot Capt. Ove V. Hultin, right, is congratulated by his boss,
Capt. Donald A. Dertien, USN, Marine Director, after he was presented a
certificate testifying that he has been made a full fledged Panama Canal pilot.
Hultin, a native of Sweden, is a naturalized U.S. citizen and has been in
training as a pilot since April 1966. Before coming to the Canal he was a
master aboard ships of the Isthmian Line, Inc., of New York.

Credit Union Bills

Approved by Senate

The U.S. Senate recently passed
two bills sponsored by CUNA Inter-
national to authorize payroll deduc-
tions for Federal employees in credit
unions to expand loan officer author-
ity and to broaden interest payments
on savings.
It is anticipated that the Housing
Banking and Currency Committee
soon will schedule hearings on the
measures. Seven credit unions operate
in the Canal Zone under Federal law:
Balboa, Cristobal, Gamboa, Catun,
Paraiso, Rodman, and the USAR-
CARIBAIR Federal Credit Unions.

showed 4 and 5 digets, I asked a
friend to figure out my new number.
He brought out his Abacus and said

dropping on the floor, he came up
with this as my new IC number:

In 1846, Abe Lincoln attended a
meeting where Preacher Peter Cart-
right was to speak. During his sermon,
the Reverend Mr. Cartright asked all
those who wished to go to heaven to
stand. All stood, except Lincoln. Cart-
right then asked all those who did
not want to go to Hell to stand. All
stood, except Lincoln. Mr. Cartright
then turned to Mr. Lincoln and asked
just where it was that he wanted to
go. At this question, Mr. Lincoln
slowly stood up and said softly . .
"Gentlemen, Mr. Cartright-I am
going to Congress!"

Health Benefit Plans
(Continued from p. 1)
Health Benefits Regulations, the next
open season for changing enrollment
must be held no later than Novem-
ber 14, 1969, although it may be held
before then. The Civil Service Com-
mission has not scheduled the next
open season. An announcement will
be made when it is scheduled.
Following is a brief summary of
the changes that will occur in the
four plans in which the bulk of Pan-
Canal employees are enrolled:
GOVERNMENT-WIDE SERVICE
BENEFIT PLAN
(Blue Cross-Blue Shield)
Increase in benefits in the X-ray
and Laboratory Services; Medical
emergency and Ambulance Service.
High Option biweekly payroll de-
ductions will be increased by 57 cents
for a self only enrollment and by 54
cents for a self and family enrollment.
There will be no change in rates for
the Low Option.
GOVERNMENT-WIDE INDEM-
NITY BENEFIT PLAN
(Aetna)
Increase in benefits in the Mental
and Nervous Disorders area.
High Option biweekly payroll de-
ductions will be increased by 58 cents

gery and Treatment benefits. Removal
of alcoholism, drug addiction, or self-
inflicted injuries exclusion.
There will be no change in rates.
AFGE HEALTH BENEFIT PLAN
There will be no changes in bene-
fits or rates.


Informal Jogs,

Swims Attract

Conditioners

The movement of jogging for fit-
ness has been growing through the
years, from high government officials
running to work in Washington to
whole towns turning out for weekend
runs in Oregon.
A growing group of unorganized
adults have been running on the
Curundu Junior High School track
late afternoons. Except for a few
special programs, the track at Cu-
rundu Junior High School is free for
adult use after 4:30 p.m. every day.
All adults in the Canal Zone are
invited to take up the rewarding
hobby of jogging at Curundu.
Another enthusiastic group of
adults takes advantage of the world
of water and participants swim laps
every noon-time. Although the Balboa
Pool is only free for adult use for the
next several months between 10:45
and 11:30 a.m. during the week, the
Los Rios Pool is free for swimming
every lunch hour. All interested adults
are invited to take advantage of this
method of getting necessary exercise.


Col. Jos6 D. BazAn, Commandant of the Colon Bomberos, left, congratulates
Raymond W. Wheeler, Cristobal District Fire Commander, after presenting
him the Colon Fire Department's Silver Cross of Honor and Merit. The
decoration for Commander Wheeler was in recognition of his cooperation
with the Colon bombers, fostering better relations between the two units.


Electric Power Cutback Urged


(Continued from p. 1)

maids to get in the habit of turning
lights off in unoccupied rooms.
Keep exterior lights to an absolute
minimum.
Use the clothesline for drying the
weekly wash after 9 a.m.-instead of
that kilowatt-eating electric dryer,
especially in the coming dry season.
Keep air conditioners adjusted to
the minimum for confort. Turn them
off altogether when you leave your
house. Turn them off altogether at
bedtime, or air-condition bedrooms
only.
Conserve water. The water is cheap,
but the electric power it takes to
pump it to your tap isn't.
To the householder a kilowatt saved
is money in the pocket. At current
rates a 2-ton air conditioner costs
about $10 a month to operate, if run
continuously; a single 100 watt light
bulb about 30 cents.
Householders and employees alike
can help substantially by scheduling
use of large electricity-using machines
in the morning before 9 or at night
after 9.

Teen Dance Tonight
The Psychedelic Lollipops will play
for the Balboa Teen Club dance
tonight, from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m.
Dress will be sportswear. Members
attend the dance free of charge. Non-
members pay a nominal fee.


Mrs. Winnifred E. Seeley, Public Health Nurse in the Well-Baby Clinic at
Balboa, receives a Superior Service Award from Dr. Sidney B. Clark, Chief,
Division of Preventive Medicine. Mrs. Seeley is retiring after 30 years of
service. She also received a check for $150. Mrs. Seeley was born in Canada
and received her nursing training in Rhode Island Hospital of Nursing. She
has been in charge of the Pacific Side Well-Baby Clinics since 1958. Mrs.
Seeley plans to reside in Wellston, Mo., and will leave the Isthmus
December 14.


The question of Christmas and other
decorative lighting arises.
Answer-modest lighting decora-
tions will be permitted if the generat-
ing plants can carry the load. Lighting
should, however, be restricted to the
evening hours only and each house-
holder should cut off an equivalent of
other lighting or electrical appliances.


Bella Vista Group

Will Entertain

For College Club
The Christmas season will start
early for Canal Zone College Club
members. A Christmas musical will
entertain the group at a meeting
Tuesday, November 28, at 3:30 p.m.
in the Roosevelt Room of the Tivoli
Guest House.
Sixteen girls from the Bella Vista
Children's Home will present a pro-
gram of Spanish Christmas Carols.
Traditional carols of Mexico, Chile,
Panama, and Spain will be included.
Playing with the group will be Cris-
t6bal Castillo, guitar; Marjorie Smith,
castanets; and Robert Brown, flute.
Mrs. Clay Randel will direct.
Last year the group made a record
of Spanish Christmas carols. There
are 21 carols on the record. Each
record has a brochure with lyrics and
an English translation. Records will
be available at the meeting.
Hostesses for the meeting are Mrs.
William Gaudy, chairman, Mrs. Wil-
liam Mallory, and Mrs. John Pettingill.

Beginning with the first pay
day in 1968, Panama Canal em-
ployees will receive a new form
of Employee Statement printed
on the computer by the Data
Processing Division of the
Office of the Comptroller.
At present an employee re-
ceives two documents, a check
stub and a Miscellaneous De-
duction Advice. The new form
will replace both of the present
forms, and, further, it will con-
tain more data.
A sample of the new Em-
ployee Statement appears
above. Salient data on the form
are lettered and refer to the
following explanations.
A. Employee's "roll and
gang," "I.P. number," and
"name."
B. "Leave." This shows the
units of leave earned, leave
taken, leave adjustments, and
the balance at the end of the
pay period.
C. Shows the "pay period"
number and "ending date" of
the pay period.
D. The number of "Basic
Time" and "Overtime" units
will be shown. For most em-
ployees this will be in hours,
in the case of teachers the
units will be days.
E. Separate dollar totals
will be shown for: "Basic
Pay," "Overtime Pay," "Other
Compensation," and "Pay Ad-
justments." These will be
totaled in the "Gross Pay"
block. The next two blocks
are the "Net Pay" (or amount


of the employee's check) and
"Gross Pay Year to Date."
F. A full "description of
deductions" will be shown
for amounts deducted or
amounts owed. The descrip-
tions on the statements for
employees with U.S. citizen
I.P. numbers will be in
English.
G. If there is a "document
number" on a payroll deduc-
tion form which the em-
ployee received a copy of,
that number will be shown in
this column, such as for a
hospital outpatient charge, a
storehouse purchase, repairs
to an electrical appliance,
etc. On the sample, the docu-
ment No. "432" for the
"FEHBA" deduction is the
health plan code assigned by
the Civil Service Commission
which is also shown on the
health insurance .booklet dis-
tributed to employees. Other
deductions, such as perma-
nent deductions for rent, etc.,
and collections for author-
ized companies or organiza-
tions, will not show a "docu-
ment number" in this column.
H. This column shows the
individual amounts deducted,
and the total at the bottom
of the column is the total for
all deductions made this pay
period.
I. This column shows the
"amount owed," either be-
cause the item was not due
for collection or could not be
collected for reasons of insuf-
ficient pay or excessive de-
ductions. This sample form


shows a "Previous Balance"
on installment contracts of
$246.10, a "Deduction" of $20
this period in the "Amount
Deducted" column, and a
corresponding credit of $20
to reduce the balance in the
"Amount Owed" column.
(Note: If an installment con-
tract deduction was not
scheduled in the following
pay period, the statement
would still show the previous
balance line with the descrip-
tion installment contracts
with the $226.10 in the
"Amount Owed" column.) On
the sample, two hospital
charges are shown: an out-
patient charge of $2.50 and
an inpatient charge of $750.
Following the rule that limits
hospital collections to 20 per-
cent of gross pay, the com-
puter has split the inpatient
charge into two parts, de-
ducting $136.57 and leaving
an "Amount Owed" of
$613.43. The total at the
bottom of the column is the
total for all amounts still
owed.
J. For each bond being
purchased a single line will
be shown, and the amount
collected on each bond will
be shown. When the final or
full collection has been made
on a bond, the number sym-
bol () will be shown next
to the amount in the "Bond
Balance" column. This sym-
bol shows the employee that
a bond will be issued prior
to the next pay day.
K. This column will show


calendar "year to date" totals
for deductions for: retire-
ment, social security, U.S. or
R.P. income tax. For other
types of deductions the num-
bers shown are codes used by
the computer and Payroll
Branch personnel.
In the present system, an em-
ployee who has his check sent


to a bank does not know his net
pay until he gets the check stub
back. The new Employee State-
ment with complete details, in-
cluding the net pay, will be
delivered to the employee on
pay day. On the salary check a
stub has been provided so that
a bank can use it as a credit
advice to the employee.


You'll get more information on:


* Exact status of leave, as of the current pay period.

* More details on pay, overtime hours, pay adjustments.

* Full description of types of deductions.

* Details of amounts due for such items as installments con-
tracts, balances on hospital bills, and similar items.

* Complete details on bond purchases, such as amount of in-
stallment paid on particular bonds, and also showing
when bonds are issued.

El aumento en trAnsitos de barcos

cruces de esclusas significant mayor
demand de energia eldctrica.
Tambi6n significant mas acondicio-
nadores de aire, mAs moldes para

Una nueva plant generadora de
energia a vapor estarA en operaci6n
a principios de 1969. Otra nueva es-
tarA operando a fines de 1970. Estas
aliviarin la possible escasez de energia
electrica en la Zona del Canal, pero
mientras tanto todos los consumido-
res deben conservar la electricidad.
El Coronel James A. Betts, Direc-
tor de Ingenieria y Construcci6n, dice
que existe la probabilidad de que el
sistema de energia no pueda hacer

sumidores reduzean el consumo alre-
dedor de un 15 por ciento durante el

especialmente important de 10 a.m.
a 2 p.m., cuando ocurre el maximo

El siempre creciente uso de ener-
gia, particularmente para el acondi-
cionamiento de aire, estA poniendo un
severo esfuerzo en la capacidad del
sistema de energia electrica para en-
frentarse a las demands de carga. Lo
que agrava esta condici6n ha sido el
aumento repentino del trafico de bar-
cos por el Canal como resultado del
aumento de embarques a Vietnam y
el cierre del Canal de Suez.
Las demands de agua para soste-
ner el gran volume de navegaci6n,
y para mantener los lagos en el alto
nivel requerido para los navios de

Paraiso Celebrara Navidad


En Gran Escala Este Anoo


Se proyecta celebrar otra grandiosa
Navidad este afio en Paraiso, segin
anuncio del president del Consejo
Civico, George V. Richards.
El gran respaldo que tuvo el pro-
grama del aiio pasado y que fue pa-
trocinado por el Consejo Civico, de-
mostr6 que la comunidad aprecia esta
clase de actividades durante la Navi-
dad, y que los planes para este afio
exigen una celebraci6n afn mais
grande.
Harold W. Williams, quien presidio
el Comit6 Organizador del afio pasa-
do, fue nombrado nuevamente presi-
dente del mismo.
No se han establecido todavia fe-
chas para las diferentes actividades,
pero el Comit6 ha convocado reunio-
nos para esta semana para completar
los planes.
En el program aparece un Ban-
quete de Navidad de la comunidad
para los nifios de la escuela primaria,
donde se entregarAn juguetes y golo-
sinas a unos 1.000 nifios. Esto se lle-
varA a cabo en el estadio do beisbol
y en el campo atl6tico de Paraiso.
Para los adults se proyecta pre-
sentar un concerto piublico gratis con
mulsica instrumental, grupos corales, y
canciones.
La entrega de atractivos premios a
las mejores decoraciones externas du-
rante la Navidad serA el punto culmi-
nante de estas celebraciones.
Para sufragar'los gastos de este ela-
borado program de Navidad, el Con-
sejo Civico pedira nuevamente a
todas las families de Paraiso, sin tomar
en cuenta si tionen o no hijos, o el
numero de la familiar, que contribuyan
con $1 solamente. El aiio pasado
mas del 90 por ciento de los resi-
dentes, inclusive los ocupantes de
viviendas de solteros, contribuyeron,
lo que llena de entusiasmo al Comit6
Organizador y le hacc pensar que un


porcentafe aun mayor cooperarA este
ano.
Las Muchachas Guias y los Mucha-
chos Exploradores y todos los clubes
que funcionan en el Area brindaron
una valiosa cooperaci6n el afio pasado
por lo que se les pedirA nuevamente
que se unan al Consejo Civico para
hacer que el program de este amo
tenga un xito mAs rotundo, anunci6
el Sr. Williams.
Se estA tambi6n invitando a los
clubes a que contribuyan tanto eco-
n6micamente como con personal para
ayudar en el empaque y distribuci6n
de juguetes, dulces y golosinas; en la
organizaci6n de juegos, y en el cui-
dado de la gran concentraci6n de
ninios que se espera.


El Senado Aprueba

A las Cooperativas
El Senado de Estados Unidos
aprob6, recientemente, dos leyes pre-
sentadas por CUNA International

tenecen a cooperatives de credito, con
el fin de ampliar la autoridad de los
funcionarios encargados de los pr6s-
tamos y para aumentar los pagos de
interests sobre los ahorros.
Se anticipa que el Comit6 de Vi-
vienda y de Operaciones Bancarias y
Monetarias fijara fechas de audiencia
sobre las medidas a tomar. En la Zona
del Canal operan siete cooperatives

la leche". Segsn Rub6n P6rez Can-
tule, indio muy culto de San Blas,
Chepo se deriva del vocablo cuna
Cipu, que significa blanco. No es
aventurado afirmar entonces que el
nombre de Chepo se debi6 al color de
la piel del cacique Chepo, "que era
blanca como leche" y al color de su
pelo que era "rojizo como cinabrio".
En 1607, el historiador Raquejo 3y
Salcedo infonnraba que Chepo "es un
pueblo con gobernador indio, algua-
cil y dos mandadores, que todos los
afios, si algo sobraba de las cosechas,
pues tenian que sacar para los gasto:
pulblicos, lo repartian entire los pobres
y las viudas".
Ya en 1736, seg6n cl Obispo Mor-
cillo Rubio y Aufidn, "Chepo era un
pueblo grande, habia unos 200 ran-
chos con algunas families espafiolas y
el resto gente de color, haciendas con
ganado, trapiches y cariaverales per-
tenecientes a los vecinos de Panamt.
Tambi6n habia esclavos que ocupa-
ban en aserraderos de maderas".
Como se puede ver, a trav6s de los
afios y hasta nuestros lias, Chepo
sigue viviendo principalmente de la
agriculture y muchas de sus casas per-
tenecen a families de la ciudad de
PanamA.

SPILLWAY DEL CANAL DE PANAMA


El D6cimo Torneo Anual de Nata-
ci6n Latinoamericano se iniciarA ma-
fiana a las 9:15 a.m. en la Piscina de
Paraiso, sobresaliendo la prueba espe-
cial de 100 metros estilo libre para
muchachos de 14 a 18 afios por el
Trofeo del Gobernador.
El torneo enfrenta a los nadadores
del lado AtlAntico (Rainbow City-
Mindi-Camp Bierd) contra los del
sector Pacifico (Paraiso-Pedro Miguel-
Santa Cruz) cuando unos 100 nada-
dores estudiantes luchen por conquis-
tar dos trofeos donados por el Gober-
nador de la Zona del Canal, W. P.
Leber y su esposa Bernice Leber, 24
trofeos y 52 medallas donadas por la
Mutual of Omaha, United of Omaha
Insurance Co.
El Gobernador y la Sra. Leber
aceptaron una invitaci6n para asistir
al Torneo que es auspiciado por el
Congress de Consejos Civicos Lati-
noamericanos, en cooperaci6n con el
Departamento de Educaci6n Fisica
y Deportes de la Divisi6n de Escue-
las de la Zona del Canal.
Favorite para triunfar por cuarta
vez esta el sector Pacifico, pero un
ligero favorite para conquistar la
Prueba Especial por el Trofeo del
Gobernador es un muchacho de Rain-
bow City, Roberto Mayers, el mayor

Habra que Reducir...

rido que cada agencia design moni-
tores para asegurar que esto se haga.
Apague todos los acondicionadores
de aire individuals durante el al-
muerzo y a la hora de salir. Nueva-
mente, un monitor serA valioso.
Examine su espacio de trabajo para
asegurarse de que las Areas que no lo
necesitan, no estain iluminadas ni
refrescadas.
Los funcionarios esperan que un
program voluntario de conservaci6n
producirA el aborro deseado y con-
tara con la ayuda de todos los em-
pleados. Sin embargo, si este progra-
ma no es suficiente, habrA que hacer
reducciones obligatorias. Estas po-
drian ser:
1. La reducci6n a discreci6n
del acondicionamiento de aire,
tanto en las oficinas como en las
casas.
2. La complete eliminaci6n
del servicio durante periods de-
finidos durante el dia.
Los ocupantes de viviendas del
Canal de PanamA pueden ayudar en
gran manera y a la vez, economizarse
alglin dinero. Se les sugiere lo si-
guiente:
Acostfmbrense y acostumbren a
los nifios y criadas al hAbito de apagar
]as luces en las habitaciones no ocu-
padas.
Mantengan las luces exteriores en
un minimo absolute.
Usen los tendederos para secar la
ropa semanal, desde las 9 a.m., en
lugar de las secadoras el6ctricas, tan


consumnidoras de electricidad, espe-
cialmente en la estaci6n seca veni-
dera.
Mantengan los aparatos de aire
acondicionado ajustados al minimo
para comodidad. Apaguelos todos
cuando salga de la casa. ApAguelos
enteramente a la hora de acostarse,
o solamente el aire acondicionado de
los cuartos de dormnir.
Conserven el agua. El agua cs
barata, pero la energia electrica que
se utiliza para enviarla a -su pluma
no lo Os.
Para un jefe de familiar el ahorro
de un kilovatio significa dinero en el
bolsillo. En las tarifas corrientes un
aparato de aire acondicionado de 2
toneladas cuesta unos $10 mensual-
mente por su operaci6n, si se usa con-
tinuamente; una bombilla de 100
vatios gasta unos 30 centavos.
Los jefes de familiar como tambien
los empleados pueden ayudar subs-
tancialmente usando las maquinas que
utilizan much electricidad antes de
las 9 de la mafiana o despues de las
9 de la noche.
Sale a relucir la pregunta sobre la
Navidad y otros alumbrados decora-
tivos.
H6 aqui la respuesta: las decora-
clones con iluminaci6n modest serin
permitidas si las plants generadoras
pueden soportar la carga. La ilumina-
ci6n, sin embargo, serA restringida a
las horas de la tarde solamente y todo
jefe de familiar deberA cortar el equi-
valente en otro alumbrado o artefacto
el6ctrico.

Una mala DECISION






Trascendencia de las Decisiones

La Vida es una Cadena de Decisiones, algunas trascendentales, otras sin
trascendencia. CuAles son las decisions verdaderamente importantes?
Muchos pensarAn: el matrimonio, escoger un oficio, cambiar de empleo, inver-
tir una suma de dinero, etc. Efectivamente, escoger la persona que nos va
a acompafiar en la vida es una decision que puede alterar el curso de nuestra
existencia. Igualmente, si elegimos el oficio apropiado a nuestras habilidades,
lograremos progresar y desempefiarlo con gusto y efectividad. Obviamente
tales decisions son fundamentals para nuestro future. Bien sabemos que si
cometemos un error de juicio tendremos que pagar las consecuencias. Nuestras
esperanzas e ilusiones se verAn frustradas y tendremos que hacer un gran
esfuerzo para enmendar el error cometido.
Todo esto lo sabemos bien, esas son las decisions que consideramos vitales.
Sin embargo, hay otras decisions que aunque lucen pequcfias y sin mayor
significaci6n, en realidad pueden volverse ecminentemente importantes y cam-
biar completamente nuestras vidas. Las pequefias decisions que hacemos
constantemente, ese process mental de comparaci6n y discernimiento que
tenemos que efectuar en pocos segundos, son a tees decisions altamente
importantes. Algo tan simple como cruzar una calle puede significar la muerte
si decidimos hacerlo en el nomento inapropiado. Para cl trabajador que esti
realizando una operaci6n que ofrece riesgos, una mnala decision, por pequefia
que parezca, puede causarle a (l y a sus compafieros tin accident de
proporciones incalculables.

Comenzando con el primer
dia de pago de 1968, los em-
pleados del Canal de Panamai
recibirAn un nuevo formulario
de Estado de Cuenta impreso
en el computador por la Divi-
si6n de Elaboraci6n de Datos
de la Contraloria.
Actualmente el empleado re-
cibe dos documents, el tal6n
del cheque y un Aviso de De-


ducciones Varias. El nuevo for-
mulario reemplazari ambos for-
mularios actuales y, mis auin,
contendrA mas informaci6n.
Arriba mostramos un ejemplo
del nuevo Estado de Cuenta.
Las letras sobresalientes en el
Estado de Cuenta sefialan in-
formaci6n important que se
explica a continuaci6n:
A. "Niumero de Control",


Ousted conseguira mayor informaci6n sore:

* Estado exacto de las vacaciones en el present periodo de
pago.
* Mas detalles sobre el pago, horas de sobre tiempo y ajustes
de pago.
* Descripci6n complete de los tipos de deduccion.
* Detalles sobre las cantidades vencidas por asuntos tales como
contratos con pagos a plazos, saldos sobre cuentas de
hospital y asuntos similares.
Detalles completes sobre las compras de bonos, tales como la
cantidad pagada a plazos sobre un bono en particular; y
tambien se indica done son emitidos los bonos.




Ia --


El control de la operacion
del computador se Ileva a
cabo en la console que
maneja el operario de
computador Jonathan Sea-
les, a la izquierda. Otro
operario de computador,
Juan Cedefio, manipula la
cinta magnitica que se co-
loca en las mAquinas que
se encuentran detris de 6l.
A la izquierda, se ve el
papel que contiene la in-
formnaci6n, en moments
en que sale de la impre-
sora.


"Nimero de Identificaci6n"
y "Nombre" del empleado.
B. "Estado de sus Vaca-
ciones". Aqui se muestran las
horas ganadas en concept
de vacaciones, las licencias
tomadas, ajustes en las va-
caciones y el balance de las
mismas al terminar el perio-
do de pago.
C. Aqui se muestran el
numero del "Periodo de
Pago" y la "Fecha de Ter-
minaci6n" del mismo.
D. En estas casillas apa-
recerAn el nuimero de unida-
des de "Tiempo Basico" y de
"Sobretiempo". Para la ma-
yoria de los empleados, la
unidad de tiempo usada sera
la hora, pero en el caso de
los maestros la unidad usada
sera el dia.
E. Se darin totales indi-
viduales en d61ares para "In-
gresos BAsicos", "Ingresos
por Sobretiempo", "Compen-
saci6n Adicional" y "Ajustes
de Pagos". Estos subtotales
son sumados y el gran total
aparecerA en la casilla del
"Sueldo Bruto". En las dos
uiltimas casillas aparecerin
el "Pago Neto" (suma que
aparece en el cheque del
empleado) y el "Sueldo Bru-
to Hasta la Fecha".
F. Se darni una detallada
"Descripci6n de Deduccio-
nes" para todas las cantida-
des deducidas o cantidades
ann sin cobrar. La descrip-
ci6n de deducciones en los
estados de cuenta para em-
pleados con nmimeros de
identificaci6n de no estado-
unidenses sera en espafiol.
G. Si hubiera un "Numero
del Documento" en el for-


mulario para deducciones de
sueldo del cual se le ha en-
viado una copia al emplea-
do, este nimero aparecera
en esta column, como en el
caso del cobro de una con-
sulta externa en el hospital,
una compra en el Almac6n,
reparaciones a artefactos
electricos, etc. Para deduc-
ciones permanentes como al-
quiler y otras similares y
cobros para compafias u or-
ganizaciones autorizadas no
se dari un "Nuimero del Do-
cumento" en esta column.
H. En esta column se
detallan las "Cantidades De-
ducidas" y el total al final de
la column es el gran total
de todas las deducciones
hechas en el period de pago
actual.
I. En esta column se
muestra la "Cantidad que se
Debe", sea porque el articu-
lo en cuesfi6n no era paga-
dero en esa fecha o porque
no pudo ser cobrado debido
a que el sueldo era insufi-
ciente o a una cantidad ex-
cesiva de deducciones. En
nuestro ejemplo vemos un
cobro por servicios 6pticos
de $14.50 que sera cobrado
en dos plazos, $7.25 en el
period de pago actual y
$7.25 en el siguiente period
de pago. Aunque en el Esta-
do de Cuenta de nuestro
ejemplo no se muestra nin-
grin cobro de cuentas de hos-
pital, se sigue la regla que
limita los cobros de cuentas
de hospital a un 20 por
ciento del sueldo bruto. En
el caso de una cuenta de hos-
pital considerable, el com-
putador calcularA la "Canti-
dad Deducida" y cualquier


balance que quede pendien-
te se mostrara en la column
de "Cantidad que se Debe"'.
El total al final de la colum-
na es el gran total de todas
las cantidades que a6n no
han sido pagadas.
J. Cada bono que esta
siendo comprado seria deta-
llado en una linea aparte y
se mostrara la cantidad que
esta siendo cobrada por cada
bono. Cuando se ha hecho el
'iltimo cobro o se ha cobrado
el valor total del bono, se
mostrard el simbolo de nu-
mero () inmediatamente
despu&s de la cantidad dada
en la column de "Balance
de Bonos". Este simbolo le
indica al empleado que un
bono sera emitido antes del
pr6ximo dia de pago.
K. En esta column se
mostrarAn los totales de las
deducciones para jubilaci6n,
seguro social, impuesto sobre
la renta de Estados Unidos
o de la Repiblica de Pana-
ma que se han hecho du-
rante el afio natural "Hasta
la Fecha". Para cualquier
otro tipo de deducci6n los
n6meros mostrados son cla-
ves usadas por el computa-
dor y per el personal de la
Secci6n de N6minas.
En el sistema actual un em-
pleado que solicita que su che-
que sea enviado al banco no
sabe cuanto es su pago neto
sino hasta que el banco le de-
vu'clve el tal6n del cheque. El
nuevo Estado de Cuenta, con
toda clase de detalles, inclu-
vendo el pago neto, le serA en-
tregado al empleado el dia dc
pago. Al cheque se le ha afia-
dido un tal6n que podra ser
usado por el banco como un
aviso de credito al empleado.
