Feb. 1 Pay Raises To Go

To 5,500 Canal Employees

More than 5,500 Canal employees
will receive pay raises effective
February 1, as a result of the Fair
Labor Standards Act minimum
wage provisions. The new increases,
raising the minimum rate from
$1.30 to $1.45 an hour, will appear
in paychecks issued March 2, 1970,
for the pay period from February 8
through 21.
The calculation of the increase
for the period from February 1
through 7 must be done manually
because the minimum wage in-
creases this year are effective Feb-
ruary 1 rather than at the begin-
ning of a pay period. The time
required to make the manual cal-
culation of the increase for the
7-day period is estimated as several
pay periods. Payment will be made
as soon as all calculations can be
made and rechecked for all em-
ployees. A notification of the exact
payday in which this adjustment
will be paid will be announced

Army Band

To Play in

C.Z. Jan. 15
The internationally-famed U.S.
Army Field Band and the Soldier's
Chorus of Washington, D.C., will
perform in concert on Thursday,
January 15, at 7:30 p.m. in the
Balboa Stadium.
The Band and Chorus will also
perform in Panama City Wednes-
day, January 14, at a time and site
to be announced later. Admission
to these concerts is free and the
public is invited.
Nicknamed the "Kings of the
Highway," the Field Band is the
official musical representative of
the Department of the Army. It
travels as much as 40,000 miles a
year and has appeared in all 50
States, Canada, Mexico, the United
Kingdom, Europe, and the Far
Highlights of their world-wide
tours have included performances
in London's Royal Festival Hall,
the Edinburgh Music Festival, the
Olympic Stadium in Berlin, Luxem-
bourg Gardens in Paris, the Ams-
terdam Concert Hall, and EXPO 67
in Montreal.
Since its formation in 1946, the
Band has traveled more than 1
million miles in performing concerts
all over the world. In 1968 alone,
the Band presented more than 600
concerts to a total audience of over
2 million people.
Conducting the 100-man Army
Field Band will be its commander,
Maj. Hal J. Gibson, a native of
Oklahoma City, Okla., who holds
bachelor and master of music
degrees from Southern Methodist
University in Dallas. Tex., and who
has commanded the elite musical
contingent since March 1968.
The Band has a wide repertoire
and in the Panama concerts will
play classical and popular music,
United States and Latin tunes.

This will be the fourth minimum
wage increase since the law went
into effect in February of 1967. The
minimum wage has been increased
each subsequent February since
1967 in $0.15 intervals. The fifth
and final increase under the present
Act will come in February of 1971
when the minimum wage will be
increased to $1.60 an hour.
The Canal Zone Manual Cate-
gory employees in the pay levels
M-1 through M-6 will receive an
average increase of 12.6 percent or
an average of $0.17 per hour; the
increments between pay levels have
been changed to $0.03 between
second step-rates of levels M-1
through M-3 and $0.04 between
levels M-3 through M-6. The Man-
ual Supervisory ratings will re-
ceive increases ranging from 10.4
percent in the Leader rating to 6.2
percent in the General Foreman
rating which represents a range of
$0.14 to $0.22 per hour.
Employees in steps 1 through 8
of Non-Manual Grade 1 and steps
1 through 5 of Grade 2 will also
receive increases. The average for
both grades is 8.2 percent. Student
Aids and Student Assistants will
receive an increase of $0.15 per
Learners in the first three classes
will receive raises based on the
appropriate pay level for their
classes. Specifically, Class 1 will
receive $0.15 per hour; Class 2,
$0.17; and Class 3, $0.21 an hour.
Other miscellaneous groups re-
ceiving increases under the Act in-
clude certain designations in the
Fee Rate, General Exclusion, and
Health Services Stipend Groups.
Examples of the designations in-
clude pinsetters, ushers, ticket
sellers, doormen, waiters, student
medical technologists, and medical
student externs. The increases for
these groups are based on the for-
mula used to derive the rate of pay
or fee basis of each designation.

New Computer Takes

On HeavyWork Load

The recent acquisition of a new
NCR Century computer has added
greater work capacity and flexi-
bility to the computer system in the

Did you know that it is against
the law to stand in a roadway to
hitchhike in the Canal Zone?
According to subsection "c" of
Section 167.417, "No person shall
stand in a roadway for the purpose
of soliciting a ride from the driver
of any vehicle."
Subsection "a" of this same sec-
tion says "Where sidewalks are pro-
vided it shall be unlawful for any
pedestrian to walk along and upon
an adjacent roadway."
The two regulations are designed
to protect the safety of both the
pedestrian and the drivers of vehi-

announced later. Admission to these concerts is free
and the public is invited.

Data Processing Division of the
Office of the Comptroller.
The NCR Century 615-100 will
be used principally as a "satellite"
for the existing NCR 315-100 com-
puter, providing printing and card
reading support.
The greater capacity provided
by the satellite is needed to handle
additional planned applications.
The first of these is scheduled for
July 1, 1970, and comprises general
accounting, plant accounting, job
order and construction accounting,
budgeting, fiscal and internal con-
trol, and reporting.
The conversion will eliminate
about 50 positions but no per-
manent employees are expected to
be terminated as a result of this.
The reduction will be absorbed
through reassignment to other posi-
tions and through normal attrition.
The same applies to a reduction
of several positions which will be
accomplished as work now done on
tabulating equipment is transferred
to the new computer to speed up
reports and make for more efficient
The accounting conversion will
be the fifth phase of an integrated
management information system
placed on the computer. The first
four phases, involving merchandise,
storehouse, payroll, and personnel
operations resulted in very signifi-
cant force reduction which were
completed without having to termi-
nate personnel.
The new computer "reads"-
transfers information from punched
cards to memory-at the rate of 750
cards a minute and prints some
3,000 numeric lines a minute.
It has a memory capacity of 8.6
million alphabetic/numeric char-
acters and permits processing of in-
formation in random sequence,
which means that data need not be
sorted according to IP number or
another type of sequence before
being fed into the machine.
Flexibility is another outstand-
ing feature of the Century. For
example, many programs "written"
for other computers are processable

"All you need in this life is
ignorance and confidence, and the
success is sure."-Mark Twain.

Of the 92 staff physicians in the
Health Bureau of the Canal Zone,
75 percent are board qualified or
board certified, a significantly higher
percentage than is found in any
large metropolitan area in the
United States.
This high ratio of individuals
completely trained in their speciali-
ties demonstrates how carefully
physicians have been selected in
order to provide outstanding pro-
fessional medical care to local res-
Boards of certification have been
developed to give hospitals and the
medical profession a yardstick for
judging the competence of physi-
cians in the performance of their
specialities. Until these boards were
formed, there was no method of
evaluating the professional abilities
of individual physicians. Now it is
possible to make appointments to
hospital staffs based purely on pro-
fessional ability and merit.
The only difference between a
board certified and a board qualified
physician is that the certified phy-
sician has taken and passed a written
or oral examination, or both, con-
structed and presented to him by



a group of his peers. The board
qualified physician, though equally
as well trained, for one reason or
another, has not taken the examina-
Iere in the Canal Zone, where a
significant number of physicians are
not U.S. citizens, there are some
cases where the physicians, although
completely trained, are not per-
mitted to take the appropriate
examinations. In fields where this
does not apply, however, non-U.S.-
citizen doctors working in the Canal
Zone have been board certified.
There are now 17 recognized cer-
tifying specialty boards in the United
States and 14 of these are repre-
sented among Health Bureau phy-
sicians. The only ones not repre-
sented here are in dermatology,
where there is a board qualified
physician who recently successfully
completed part I of his examina-
tion; neurological surgery, in which
speciality there is no physician on
the stalf, but the services of a con-
sultant in Panama, who is cer-
tified in this area, are employed:
and colon and rectal surgery which
is performed here by board cer-
tified general surgeons as is done in
most areas in the United States.

New Power Branch Chief

Vance Howard, right, new Chief of the Panama Canal Electrical Division's
Power Branch, talks things over with his successor Robert R. McCoy, new
supervisor of Generation and Transmission. Both are graduates of Balboa
High School and both completed a 4-year course with the Panama Canal
apprentice program as electrical apprentices. Howard was born in Ancon
and served during World War II with the U.S. Navy. He has been super-
visor of generation and transmission at the Balboa Substation since 1964.
He replaces John R. Smith, who retired recently from his position as power
chief. McCoy came to the Canal Zone with his parents as a boy and has
been chief of the Miraflores Power Station since 1966.

Does popular music bewilder
you? Can vou tell the difference
between The Grateful Dead and
The Who? The book to tell you all
about it and a good deal about the
young generation too is Rock From
the Beginning by Nik Cohn, a bright
and articulate young Englishman.
He writes well, even though he's in-
clined to classify the music and the
performers as either "magnificent"
or "dire." Cohn himself, to use an
old-fashioned phrase, is "real cute."
Timothy Green is another Eng-
lishman writing about a phase of
modern life in The Smugglers. The
international smuggling organiza-
tions which deal in human hair,
human beings, pigs and heroin, and
anything else which will show a
profit, are all described in this
knowledgeable book. Frightening in
a way, this account may never-
theless relieve the tedium of your
next jet flight. Ten to one you'll be
looking for a gold smuggler.

"Yield" Sign

Gives Priority

To Other Auto

Whenever a 'Yield Right-of-
Way" sign is found at or near the
entrance of an intersection, the
motorist approaching the sign
should slow to a speed that is
reasonable for the existing condi-
tions or stop if necessary before
entering the intersection. He should
also yield the right-of-way to all
vehicles approaching the intersec-
tion from another street.
If a driver is involved in a col-
lision at such an intersection or
interferes with the movement of
other vehicles after driving past a
"Yield Right-of-Way" sign, this
collision or interference will be
considered as sufficient evidence of
the driver's failure to yield the
right-of-way. Normally, he will be
held responsible for the collision.
In connection with "Yield" signs,
there appears to be some confusion
as to the meaning of the term Right-
of-Way. As used in this sign it has
nothing to do, specifically, with the
right lane or left lane but simply
designates a movement priority of
one vehicle over another.
If you yield the right-of-way to
another vehicle, you wait at the
entrance to the intersection until
the opposing vehicle has cleared
the area of possible conflict so that
it is safe to proceed.

Walk Barefoot

And Take Risk

Of Hookworm
Many tropic dwellers, encour-
aged by the warm climate, discard
their shoes and go about barefoot,
unaware that they stand a very
good chance of getting hookworm.
A serious case was treated recently
at Gorgas Hospital.
IHookworms are round worms
whose eggs hatch outside the human
body in moist, shady, warm, sandy
soils usually where fecal material
has been deposited. The larvae feed
on organic material and are ready
to infect bare toes and feet within
5 days. They do not stay at the
point where they enter the skin but
migrate through the body systems
to the intestines where they may
go undetected for 5 years or longer.
Infected children may be re-
tarded in mental and physical
development. Anyone having hook-
worms is a potential spreader of
infection as long as he remains
infected and can continue to pollute
soil for several years unless detected
and treated. When conditions are
favorable, the infectious larvae re-
main alive in soil for several weeks
awaiting the unsuspecting victim.
The best way to avoid becoming
infected with hookworms is to never
go outside barefoot and to teach
children the importance of wearing
shoes at all times when outside

Despu6s de las fiestas de Navidad
v Afio Nuevo comenz6 la remoci6n
de los adornos navidefios que habia

Edificio de Administraci6n. La la-
bor fue hecha en la manana del

Muy animadas resultaron las fies-

panameno Lucho Azefrraga deleit6
a los empleados del Edificio de Ad-

Estamos todavia en los dias en
que la mayoria de las personas es-

de 1970. Y a prop6sito, se ha dicho
que 1970 no es el comienzo de una

presenciaban las corridas de toros
en PanamA, en las que se presenta-

no tendran mAs ese pasatiempo ya

Pepe nos dice:

No use el cesto como cenicero

TODO EL MUNDO LO HACE, pero eso no lo justifica. En la industrial o en la
casa hay ceniceros para ese fin. 8CuAntos incendios han ocurrido porque al-
guien ech6 una colilla en el cesto de papeles, sin cerciorarse primero de que
estaba apagada?
Esto me recuerda, dice Pepe, lo que le sucedi6 a mi jefe, Ram6n Garcia, en
una plant del sur donde yo trabajaba.
Al liegar al trabajo esa mafiana, 61 colg6 su chaqueta en la percha como te-
nia por costumbre. En ese moment vino a verlo un colega quien casualmente,
mientras hablaba, apag6 el cigarrillo en la suela del zapato y lo arroj6 al cesto
de papeles colocado junto a la percha.
Cuando ya estaba a punto de irse, alguien llam6 a Garcia que lo necesitaban
en una de las mAquinas saliendo ambos al mismo tiempo.
Al poco rato Garcia regres6 a su oficina encontrAndola llena de humo. Al
parecer la colilla no estaba completamente apagada y habia prendido los pape-
les propagindose las llamas a la chaqueta, mAs arriba. Garcia ech6 mano in-
mediatamente a un extintor apagando las llamas a tiempo de evitar peores
La lecci6n le cost la chaqueta, pero 61 se consider dichoso que no se que-
dara sin trabajo. Desde entonces, no deja que nadie eche las colillas en el cesto
de papeles e insisted en que usen los ceniceros y recipients que se proven pa-
ra ello.*
