Canal Spillway

Friday, October 24, 1975

Spirit of '76 as artistically created from discarded Panama Railroad spikes
is presented to Gov. H. R. Parfitt by Rudolph Burda, an optician with
the Balboa Optical Shop. Burda heated the spikes, then bent them into
the shape of the famous Spirit of '76 trio of the fife players and
drummer. Next he painted them and mounted the figures on a wooden
base. He made the presentation to the Canal organization in connection
with the bicentennial of the United States. Burda has used this medium
to wield his talent previously in the form of athletes, Don Quijote and
Sancho Panza, and numerous other subjects.

Panama Canal


Top CFC Goal
Two additional Panama Canal
Company-Canal Zone Government
units, the Marine and Civil Affairs
bureaus, exceeded their goals dur-
ing the past week, pushing the
entire Panama Canal organization
over the top with more than 106.6
percent of its 1976 campaign goal
of $245,380.
Three bureaus, Financial Vice
President, Health, and Transpor-
tation and Terminals, had not yet
achieved their goals but all three
had passed the 95 percent mark
and were still climbing.
Reports on non-Panama Canal
agency contributions to the CFC
showed that Southern Command
had reached 94.5 percent of its
goal. The other five outside agen-
cies stood as follows: Federal
Highway Administration, 176.6
percent; Navy, 71.7 percent; Air
Force, 35.1 percent; District
Courts, 20 percent; and Army
19.7 percent.
According to campaign head-
quarters, all contributions totaled
$292,601 or 76.1 percent of the
$384,600 goal as of press time.
The Combined Federal Cam-
paign continues through Novem-
ber 4.

Civic Councils

Give Hints for

Safe Halloween
It's fun to go trick or treating
on Halloween.
But it can be just as much fun
and a lot safer if Canal Zone res-
idents will follow the advice of
the Pacific Civic Council.
The Council believes that in-
juries to small children and an-
noyance to residents can be pre-
vented if householders will:
. . . allow their children to
"trick or treat" only between the
hours of 5:30 to 7 p.m., Octo-
ber 31;
S. .distribute treats to children
of elementary school age only and
discourage all others;
� . . refrain from distributing
treats after 7 p.m., and tell trick
or treaters that that part of the
Halloween celebration is over.
Extra police surveillance is
planned for that night and res-
idents are asked to promptly re-
port acts of vandalism or other
abuses by calling the Central Bal-
boa Police Station, 52-7862.
Residents can cooperate further
by not opening their doors after
7 p.m.

Virginia N. Keller, the Canal
Zone's first woman parade mar-
shall, will be at the head of the
marching units as they move along
La Boca Road, turn left onto Bal-
boa Road, pass the reviewing stand
at Stevens Circle, and continue to
the intersection at Balboa Road
and Roosevelt Avenue.
Participating in the parade will
be Armed Forces and combined
Veterans' Color Guards, the Vet-
erans of Foreign Wars, American
Legion, and their ladies auxiliaries,
Scouts organizations, Balboa and
Cristobal ROTC units, BPO Elks
1414, Balboa Lions Club and Abou
Saad Temple foot units, motorized
units and clowns.
Music will be provided by
armed forces bands, the Panama
Bomberos Band and Bugle Corps,
International Boy Scouts Band and
Lucho Azcirraga.
There will also be queens riding
on floats and equestrians from
local riding clubs.
Felipi Cazobon is the parade

U.S. Families

Asked To Join

RUSH Program
U.S. families residing in the
Canal Zone are being asked to
participate in the RUSH (Reveal-
ing United States Hospitality) Pro-
gram and to share their Thanks-
giving festivities with students at
the Inter-American Air Forces
Academy (IAAFA).
Academy officials hope that each
of the 176 students from 12 Latin
American countries who are cur-
rently enrolled will receive invita-
tions to Thanksgiving dinner with
American families here. Countries
represented include: Argentina,
Bolivia, Colombia, Dominican Re-
public, Ecuador, El Salvador, Gua-
temala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Pa-
raguay, Peru and Uruguay. The
average age of the students is 20
Lt. Mary J. Mayer, project ofi-
cer for the 1975 RUSH Program,
emphasizes that persons need not
be fluent in Spanish to participate
in the program as language is no
barrier in expressing hospitality
and friendship.
The RUSH Program has a two-
fold purpose-helping the Academy
students to become familiar with
United States traditions and fam-
ilies, and to acquaint the U.S. cit-
izens in the Canal Zone with Latin
American people.
Families living in the Canal
Zone military and civilian' com-
munities are invited to take part
in the Thanksgiving RUSH Pro-
gram again this year. Persons in-
terested in having students as
guests in their home are asked to
call Lieutenant Mayer, 86-6101 or
4272, for further information.

UNICEF Coin Boxes

Are Distributed
UNICEF coin boxes were dis-
tributed to the students in all of
the schools in the Canal Zone
The Canal Zone UNICEF com-
mittee suggests that the coin boxes
be used as personal "piggy banks"
in which the students and their
families can make personal con-
tributions. These donations will be
used to support the health and
education activities of the United
Nations Children's Fund. Children
will be discouraged from canvasing
friends and neighbors in door-to-
door solicitations.
Teachers will advise their stu-
dents that the boxes are to be
returned on Halloween Day, Oc-
tober 31. There will be no com-
petition among children as to the
amount of money collected.

Tuition Refund Program

Procedure Is Outlined

Because of the continuing inter-
est by many employees in the
Company-Government Tuition Re-
fund Program, the following infor-
mation about the program should
be helpful.
The Tuition Refund Program is
operated to encourage Panama

Thanksgiving Classic

Swim Trials Planned
The Thanksgiving Classic Trials
swim meet, will be held at the
Balboa Swimming Pool at 9 a.m.,
November 8 and the finals will be
hold at Gamboa Pool at 9 a.m.,
November 22. The meet is open
to all students attending school in
the Canal Zone.
Contestants may enter three
events in their age group; age as
of November 22, will determine
eligibility for each age group. Cut
times have been established for
each event. A swimmer must equal
or better these times to be con-
sidered for the trials or classic.
Application may be picked up at
any Panama Canal or military pool
on the Pacific side and must be
returned to Balboa or Curundu
Pool by 5 p.m., November 6.
For more information, call G. R.
Barnes at 83-3601.

Zone College, other organizations
with approved educational func-
tions, or by correspondence cour-
ses. The objective of the program
is to improve the employee's per-
formance of his present duties, or
to fill future skills or knowledge
needs when the employee is in
training on a formal career ladder
for a position to which he may be
promoted within a reasonable
period of time.
The program operates as fol-
lows: An employee finds a course
that he believes will meet the ob-
jectives of the program, and gets
his supervisor's concurrence that
the course is appropriate for re-
fund sponsorship . . . or a super-
visor suggests a course and the
employee agrees. Form 984,
"Agreement for Tuition Refund"
is prepared by the employee and
forwarded in turn to the division
chief, the bureau director, and
the Personnel Director for ap-
proval. The employee then regis-
ters for the course, pays the tui-
tion, and completes the course.
If his grade is a C or better he
requests reimbursement of tuition
by resubmitting the Form 984
together with proof of tuition pay-
ment and grade received. It is im-
portant to note that all approvals
must be obtained before the first
instructional session. The Form
984 therefore should be prepared
sufficiently in advance to insure
timely approval.

En Torno al Programa de

Reembolso de Matricula

En virtud del especial interns
manifestado por muchos emplea-
dos de la Compafiia del Canal de
Panama y el Gobierno de la Zona
del Canal, en el Programa de Re-
embolso de Ayuda para Matricu-
las, ofrecemos a continuaci6n la
siguiente informaci6n que les sera
de utilidad:
El Program de Reembolso de
Ayuda para Matriculas ha sido es-
tablecido para alentar a los em-
pleados de la Compania del Canal
de PanamA y el Gobierno de la
Zona del Canal a su mejoramiento,
mediante la participaci6n en cur-
sos ofrecidos por la Universidad
de la Zona del Canal, en otras
agencies educativas autorizadas y
en cursos por correspondencia, du-
rante horas no laborables.
El prop6sito del program es
capacitar al empleado para un me-
jor desempefio de sus funciones, y
de responder a las necesidades de
mejorar sus conocimientos q(ie le
imponen su vocaci6n o intcrfs de
adiestrarse en una carrera en la
perspective de scr ascendido a una
nmjor posici6n dentro de in plazo
El program opera en la si-
guiente forma: Un empleado de-
tecta n curso que consider res-

ponde a los objetivos del progra-
ma y logra convencer al supervisor
de que el curso entra dentro del
patrocinaje del program . . . o
bien, un supervisor sugiere un cur-
so al que el empleado accede.
El fonnulario (Form) 984 sobre
"Acuerdo para el Programa de
Reembolso de Ayuda para Ma-
triculas" (Agreement for Tuition
Refund) es preparado para el em-
pleado y remitido a su vez al jefe

Si su calificaci6n es por lo me-
nos C el empleado solicit el re-
embolso del monto de la matricula
presentando el Formulario 984
junto al comprobante de pago de
la matricula y la nota recibida. Es
de primordial importancia el hecho
de que toda aprobaci6n debe ha-
ber sido obtenida antes de la pri-
mera sesi6n de classes. En conse-
cuencia, el Formulario 984 deberA
ser preparado con suficiente anti-
cipaci6n, a fin de asegurarse de
que sea aprobado con tiempo sufi-
ciente, y en consccutncia pueda
reclamiar en su oportunidad la
suma pagada al matricularse.

Anesta Eugenia Clarke es secretaria
del Gerente de Vivienda, depen-
dencia de la Direcci6n de Abastos y
Servicios Comunales de la empre-
sa del Canal. Su trabajo consiste
principalmente en tomar dictados
y es la responsible de la corres-
pondencia de la oficina. Nacida en
Anc6n, Zona del Canal, la Srta.
Clarke reside desde hace much
tiempo en la Via Espafia, ciudad de
Panama. Hizo sus studios pri-
marios en la Escuela Josefina Ta-
pia. La secundaria en el Institute
Panamericano de la ciudad de Pa-
nama, en donde se gradu6 como
secretaria con el primer puesto de
honor. Como alumna graduanda,
fue la secretaria del director del
anuario "The Seawall Echo". Du-
rante su niltimo afio en el plantel
el director le solicit6 que dictara
classes durante el verano en leyes
comerciales y economic political a
algunos de sus compafieros, cosa
que ella hizo con el mayor de los
gustos porque le agrada ensefiar.
Su primera experiencia con la em-
presa del Canal de Panama fue en
1966, cuando trabaj6 como ayu-
dante estudiantil con la Divisi6n
de Servicios Administrativos. A po-
co de graduarse trabaj6 con la
Cia. Calox Panamefia por 1 afio.
Despu6s de 2 afios de ausencia
regres6 al Canal como mecan6gra-
fa en la Secci6n de Contabilidad
(Ordenes) en la antigua Contralo-
ra, lo que es ahora la Oficina del
Vicepresidente encargado de Fi-
nanzas. Luego de 1 aiio en ese em-
pleo, renunci6 con la idea de irse
a residir a los Estados Unidos.
Dos dias despu6s de llegar a Fila-
delfia, empez6 a trabajar con la
Junta de Educaci6n como secreta-
ria bilingiie en el Departamento de
Asesoramiento para Madres de Es-
casos Recursos. Sinti6 una gran sa-
tisfacci6n en aquel trabajo, pues
su posici6n le permitia ayudar a
madres de escasos recursos y a

Ol ,

sus hijos. Despu6s de esta ausen-
cia regres6 a Panama, y en Sep-
tiembre de 1970 empez6 a tra-
bajar como recepcionista en el
Ramo de la Vivienda. En 1971,
fue electa empleada del afio. La
Srta. Clarke, fue ascendida a se-
cretaria del Gerente de la Vivien-
da en 1972. Le encanta viajar.
Por ahora ha estado en Trinidad
y Tobago, Costa Rica, M6xico y en
Filadelfia, Miami, Nueva York,
Washington, D.C. y San Francis-
co, EE. UU. Espera algrin dia via-
jar al Viejo Continente. Acerca del
matrimonio opina que para hacer

de 61 un 6xito se necesita dos per-
sonas no solamente dispuestas a
compartir las alegrias, sino tam-
bi6n a sobrellevar los moments
dificiles, que siempre los habrA.
Alguin dia tomara esta responsabi-
lidad, afirma. Actualmente estudia
Administraci6n de Negocios en la
Universidad de la Zona del Canal.
Entre los moments inolvidables
de su vida recuerda su graduaci6n
con los mas altos honors y su
viaje, a los 19 afios de edad, a Fi-
ladelfia. Como pasatiempo le gus-
ta nadar, leer y observer peliculas
de comedies y musicals.

Al comentar el deprimente cua-
dro de desnutrici6n entire la nifiez
del mundo, Kaye dijo recientemen-
te que las condiciones estin ame-
nazando seriamente las vidas de
los nifios. "La UNICEF ha infor-
mado que 500 millones de nifios
en todo el mundo pueden pasar
lentamente de su actual desnutri-
ci6n a una complete inanici6n".
Hizo una pausa y dijo pausada-
mente: "quinientos . . . millones

Kaye subray6 que tantos nifios
mueren en silencio porque no tie-
nen fuerza political ni voz para
presentar su problema ante el
mundo. La UNICEF se ha cons-
tituido en su representante.
Los 21 arios de Kaye de estar
trabajando en favor de la nifiez,
le han dado plena autoridad y co-

del problema.
