Annuity Increase

Up 5.6 Percent

For New Retirees
U.S. Government employees who
retire before August 1970, and
those who already are Federal re-
tirees, will receive an annuity in-
crease of 5.6 percent effective
August 1, it was announced by the
Personnel Bureau. The increase will
be reflected in their September
annuity checks.
The increase became official
when the Labor Department's price
index rose .5 percent in May, mak-
ing it 4.6 percent over what it was
on November 1, 1969, the last time
Federal annuities were increased.
Together with the automatic ad-
ditional 1 percent added whenever
annuities are adjusted, the annuity
increase will total 5.6 percent.
Present Federal workers must
retire not later than July 31 in
order to get the 5.6 percent in-
crease. They may retire sooner if
they wish and still get the 5.6 per-
cent increase effective August 1.
Additional civil service retire-
ment benefits in the form of initial
annuity adjustments and future
cost of living adjustments were first
provided on October 11, 1962.
The initial adjustment started
January 1, 1963, and the annuity
of each retired employee eligible to
receive an annuity on that date was
increased by 5 percent.
A law approved September 27,
1965, provided that whenever the

Canal Builder

John F. Stevens Day

Proclaimed in Maine

Sixty four years ago Monday,
U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt
signed into law the act authorizing
construction of a high level, lock-
type canal across the Isthmus of
John F. Stevens, the engineer
who is credited with the organiza-
tion and planning that assured the
success of the Canal project, has
been nominated to the Hall of Fame
of Great Americans.
The decision to build a sea level
Canal followed a long series of
debates and studies in which a
Board of Consulting Engineers
named by President Roosevelt failed
to reach a unanimous agreement on
the type of Canal to be built.
Eight of the 13 consultants on
the board favored a sea level Canal.
Stevens, then Chief Engineer of
the Isthmian Canal Commission,
supported the minority opinion and

Canal Zone Police Division, has

Stevens was appointed by
President Theodore Roosevelt
who called him to his home
at Oyster Bay, N.Y., and told
him, according to Stevens, that
Panama was in a devil of a mess.
He demanded and got a free

In addition to other qualities,
Stevens was blessed with a
sprightly wit. Even his official
reports made good reading.
"There are three diseases in Pan-
ama," he said. "They are yellow
fever, malaria, and cold feet; the
greatest of these is cold feet."
o *
Concerning the rusty broken-
down Panama Railroad he wrote:
"About the only claim for good

work .. was that there had
been no collisions for some time.
A collision has its good points as
well as its bad ones . It indi-
cates that there is something
moving on the railroad."

"Big Smoke" was his nickname
from the start. When he wasn't
chain smoking cigars, he was
chain chewing them.

Stevens rejected a small but
palatial residence outside Pan-
ama City which has been as-
signed as his residence. Instead
he took a cheap bungalow with
a corrugated iron roof on the side
of Culebra Cut where the dig-
ging was going on.



the U.S. Senate approved the lock-
type canal in a 36 to 31 vote.
April 25, Stevens' birthday, was
declared John F. Stevens Day by
Gov. Kenneth M. Curtis of Maine,
Stevens' home state. Curtis, who is
honorary chairman of a committee
to elect Stevens to the Hall of
Fame, issued a pibclamation which
says in part:
WHEREAS, John Frank Stevens
is a native son of Maine and through
his endeavors has brought great
fame to himself and to our State;
WHEREAS, Mr. Stevens has
been credited as being the basic
architect of the Panama Canal as
well as one of the pioneers of rail-
road development to the West; and

revered by scores of prominent
Americans they have formed a

The previous record was estab-
lished 14 years ago when the In-
dustrial Division completed 305
days without a lost time injury.
Captain Gallin announced that
a plaque would be given the Divi-
sion and congratulated the em-
ployees who, he said, are "working
in a division with high safety hazard
exposure, and comprised of so many
varied crafts. I know you are, as
you should be, filled with pride in

step in the long range plans made
by the Canal organization to de-
velop an oil pollution control pro-
gram able to operate in accordance
with the Federal Water Quality
Improvement Act of 1970.
This program is designed to pre-
vent, detect, control, and cleanup
oil pollution of waters in the Canal
So far the program being con-
ducted by the Canal has included
the repair of oil pipe lines and the
upgrading of the Canal oil handling
facilities on both sides of the Isth-
mus. On the premise that preven-
tion is more important than control,
preventive measures are being taken
and repairs and preventive main-
tenance are being done.
During the first 5 months of this
year, the Panama Canal has spent
approximately $21,000 on chemicals
and labor for oil cleanup. A new
type of oil skimmer pump is on
order for the harbor of Cristobal to
replace an installed prototype.
Other equipment will be ordered as
soon as it becomes available in the
United States.
Hummer is well qualified for his
new position. He is acquainted with
the Isthmus, having been born
here and attended the Canal Zone
schools. His father Charles A.
Hummer, Sr., was retired about
2 years ago from the Engineering
Division of the Panama Canal.
He received a degree in chemical
engineering from Notre Dame Uni-
versity and has been working in the
Canal Zone with the Navy since his

at Albrook AFB, is known to Isth-
mians for his lighting design for the
1968 United Fund production, West
Side Story. He was lighting designer
and director for Brigadoon, and
producer-director of Anniversary
Waltz. He also did the lighting for

Four Young Men Find Garlic

Has Sweet Smell of Success

Dwarfed by a large tanker, the
small cargo ship, Cherie, stood at
Balboa dock, immobilized with
generator trouble while her skipper,
Capt. Ben Abrams, paced up and
down and wondered aloud, "How
long will garlic keep?"
On board the ship was a cargo
of 150 tons of garlic, a somewhat
unusual cargo, but then the Cherie
is not an ordinary ship. Only 120
feet long with a beam of 20 feet,
she is not much larger than a tug,
and is crewed by just four men, all
in their 20's and all filled with a
sense of adventure and a determina-
tion to make a success of their ship-
ping business. They were very much

affected it.

concerned about the possible spoil-
age of the garlic as they waited for
repairs so they could transit the
Canal and deliver their cargo to the
owner in Puerto Rico.
The crew is international. Ben,
the skipper, comes from Wilming-
ton, N.C.; Malcolm Stiles, the first
mate, from England; Herbert Freer,
chief engineer, and Wolford Sche-
deck, chief stewart, both from
About 3 years ago, Ben and Mal-
colm met while sailing and became
friends. They found they had a
mutual interest in the sea and ship-
ping. They formed a company,
Abrams & Stiles Shipping Co., Inc.,
with the idea of transporting cargo
to small out-of-the-way places with
limited docking facilities where the
large ships were unable to go.
They found financial backing for
their company when two Miami
businessmen, impressed with their
enthusiasm and plans, decided to
invest $70,000 in the company.
The men promptly set out to find
just the right kind of ship. They
located the Cherie in Germany
where she was being used in the
German canals. After much nego-
tiating, they bought her, using the
$70,000, and had her converted into
an oceangoing cargo ship. She is
now a tramp steamer, sailing with-
out a fixed itinerary.

1967, and have been distributed to
employees in booklet form.
The regulations prescribe stand-

Bureau director. The award was made in the office of Capt. E. B. Rainier,

"Plate Master" experienced a steering failure in Bas Obispo Reach and
struck the east bank. Although the ship was damaged and was taking in
water, Captain Robertson proceeded to Gamboa and beached it at the
Gamboa moorings, preventing blocking of Canal traffic.

with many former Canal residents
who live in the area offering to put
up visitors for the weekend.
A cocktail party is planned for
July 3 at 8:30 p.m. at the home of
Sal and Joy Aleguas, at 1525 Phyllis

his parents Mr. and Mrs. Harold
Abrams. They flew down from Wil-
mington for a brief visit. With Ben's
tramp steamer itinerary, he seldom
gets home. His mother baked a cake
in North Carolina, froze it, and
brought it along as a present for the
crew who had been without home
cooking for a long time.
As the crew went about making
repairs and worrying about the gar-
lic spoiling, someone asked; "What
in the world would anyone want
with so much garlic?" No one had
the answer but someone noted that

in a recent issue of a national mag-
azine, there was a story that re-
search scientists had just made the
discovery that garlic kills mosquitoes
and they have made progress in-de-
veloping an insecticide from garlic.
Their main problem with the in-
secticide is the odor which has to
be toned down before it will be
a satisfactory product. The men
aboard the Cherie agreed with that.
After being held up for a few days
at the Canal, not ohly the ship, but
the crew as well, had the distinctive,
strong, lingering, fragrance of garlic
even at a distance of 10 feet.

potential hazards of boating are not
so well known. As thousands of our
fellow citizens take to the already-
crowded waters each year, the
potential danger to themselves-and
to those who have enjoyed this
pastime for many years-becomes
increasingly apparent. Boating is
and should be enjoyable, but it will
remain that way only if the safety
of all those engaged in boating is
insured by knowledge and practice

Plan July 4


Veterans and civic organizations
in the Canal Zone are preparing
observances for Independence Day,
July 4, which will include parades,
sky-diving exhibitions, and other
attractions on the Isthmus.
On the Atlantic side, Jack L.
Streeter is chairman of the Inde-
pendence Day Committee and coor-
dinator is Gilbert Sollas, Adminis-
trative Assistant/Liaison in the
Transportation and Terminals Di-
rector's Office.
A parade, sky-diving demonstra-
tion and kiddie rides at the Cristobal
High School area in Coco Solo are
planned throughout the day. The
guest speaker at Coco Solo will be
Canal Zone Gov. W. P. Leber. The
Atlantic side activities are scheduled
to begin at 10 a.m.
Pacific side activities will include
a sky-diving exhibition, a large pa-
rade starting at 10:30 a.m. in Balboa
with District Judge Guthrie F.
Crowe as Parade Marshal, the 14th
annual Elks Invitational Swim
Meet at 1 p.m. in the Balboa Pool,
and a 50-gun salute to the Union

Annuity Increase
(Continued from p. 1)
cost of living nationwide went up
by at least 3 percent over the Con-
sumer Price Index for the month
used as the basis for the most recent
cost of living annuity increase, and
stayed up by at least 3 percent for
3 consecutive months, an increase
equal to the percentage rise in the
Consumer Price Index would be
granted automatically.
Other increases were 3.9 percent
granted January 1, 1967; 3.9 per-
cent May 1, 1968; and a further
adjustment of 3.9 percent effective
March 1, 1969. The last increase
effective November 1, 1969, was
for 4 percent. With the additional
1 percent provided by the Civil
Service Retirement Amendments,
approved October 20, 1969, this
increase amounted to 5 percent.
Since the cost of living increases
started in 1963, the cumulative per-
centage increase in annuities has
amounted to 52.6 percent, including
the August 1 increase.

gress, by a joint resolution approved
June 4, 1958, has requested that the
President proclaim annually the
week which includes July 4 as Na-
tional Safe Boating Week.
ARD M. NIXON, President of the
United States of America, do here-
by designate the week beginning
June 28, 1970, as National Safe
Boating Week.
"The theme for National Safe
Boating Week 1970 reminds us,
"Safe Boating Is No Accident." As
insurance against accidents, I urge
the American boatmen to take ad-
vantage of the numerous courses
available in boating safety.
"I also invite the Governors of
the States and the Commonwealth
of Puerto Rico and appropriate offi-
cials of all other areas under the
United States flag to provide for the
observance of this week. And to
the many fine organizations who
will voluntarily give of their time

Tarr adds, "I am particularly

Chong es operario de equipo de con-
tabilidad en la unidad de mAquinas

Panama. Es la segunda vez este afio
que le toca trabajar con la empresa
del Canal. La primera vez fue al fi-
nalizar sus studios secundarios du-
rante las vacaciones escolares de los
planteles de la Repiblica de Pana-

al hacer su solicitud para trabajar
como empleado temporal en la Con-

en seguida. La Srta. Chong cumpli-

fianza bilingiie mis acreditados de
la capital. Los que se gradfan en
ese colegio, generalmente, salen ha-
blando perfectamente el espafiol y

firme prop6sito de llegar a ser una
professional de la medicine, al ex-
tremo que dice: "Actualmente no
pertenezco a ninguna asociaci6n
professional, pero tengo la fire de-
terminaci6n de Ilegar algin dia a
pertenecer a la Asociaci6n M6dica

zado a hacer las diligencias para
culminar sus ambiciones, pues ya
se gan6 una beca para cursar estu-
dios universitarios por un afio en
los Estados Unidos, a partir del
mes de septiembre. Guarda muy
buenos recuerdos de su period
como ayudante estudiantil en el
Ramo de Artes GrAficas del Canal

que tenia que desempefiar, general-
