The Panama


Uuake Victims
As word of the Guatemalan
earthquake reached the Isthmus,
Canal Zone residents rushed to
their closets, cupboards and check-
books and within days donated
items were turned over to church,
civic and fraternal organizations
for delivery to the quake victims.
By February 20, the Canal Zone
Chapter of the American Red Cross
had received $3,500 in donations
which included checks from the
Curundu Junior High School and
the 7th grade class of St. Mary's
School and many individuals. An-
other $1,100 had been collected
by the Salvation Army, $700 of
which had been contributed by the
Balboa High School Student Asso-
ciation.
In addition to money, 6,300
pounds of food and clothing had
been shipped to Guatemala and
another 4,500 pounds was on hand.
Many schools took part in the
relief program with students bring-
ing a can, box or package of food
to school.
Students at Balboa High School
declared two "Fast Days" during
which students were encouraged to
donate their lunch money to the
Guatemalan relief effort. The re-
sult was the $700 contributed to
the Salvation Army.
Other organizations taking part
in the relief efforts were the Bal-
boa Union Church, Rainbow Girls,
American Legion, St. Mary's
Church, the Baptist Foreign Mis-
sion Board and the Navy League
of United States, Panama Council.
Many more groups made liberal
contributions to the disaster fund.
Among them were the International
Transportation Association; Natha-
niel J. Owen Post No. 3, Amer-
ican Legion, Catun; the "Pasabar-
cos" (Deckhands) of Balboa; Ba-
nana Stevedores Society No. 1;
and employees of the Corozal Post
Exchange.


Cadets from the Escuela Niu-
tica de PanamA will begin 8 weeks
of training with the Canal organi-
zation next week.
This is the third consecutive
year that nautical school cadets
have received this type of training

tions.
In 1974, 30 cadets underwent a
6-week training program and last
year 45 cadets completed 8 weeks
of training.

welcome the cadets at Miraflores
Locks theater at 9 a.m., March 1.
Following a brief orientation by
Capt. D. A. Dertien, Marine Di-
rector, and other Canal officials,
the cadets will hear a talk on safety
and see a movie on the operations
of the waterway.
The cadets, divided into three
groups of 11 and one group of 12,
will receive training from units of
the Marine, Engineering and Con-
struction, and Transportation and
Terminals bureaus.
The program includes super-
vised deck and engineering room

agencies. The Board is composed of
Assistant Secretary of the Army
for Civil Works Victor V. Veysey,
Chairman, Gov. H. R. Parfitt, and
Lt. Gen. D. P. McAuliffe, Com-
mander in Chief of the U.S. South-
ern Command.
Under the terms of the pro-
posal, rates of pay for positions at
grades NM-4 through NM-6 and
at MG-10 would be changed from
the United States pay base to the
Canal Zone pay base. Positions at
NM-1 through NM-3 and MG-1
through MG-9, currently under
the Canal Zone pay base, would
continue to be so. Security posi-
tions below the new cutoff would
be on the Canal Zone Pay Base.
The following grade levels and
above would be paid on the
United States pay base:'NM-7;
MG-11; ML-10; MS-10; CS-10;
FN-8; CF-4; and FS-4. In the case
of employees in the CS-10 and
above and CF-4 and above, the
move would be from Canal Zone
wage base to U.S. wage base.
Persons holding positions below
the new cutoff and who would be
placed on the Canal Zone wage
base would not suffer a reduction
in earnings. Instead, they would
be grandfathered with their wages
remaining at the current level
until general wage increases and
in-grade step increases pushed the
Canal Zone wage base up to the
level of the U.S. wage base. At
that time, they would again be
eligible for future general increases
and in-step raises.
The Panama Canal organiza-
tion, the largest employer of civ-
ilians in the Canal Zone, has at
present 2,193 employees who
would be changed from the U.S.
to the Canal Zone wage base. Of
this total, there are 1,488 Panama-
nians, 1,034 in the non-manual
category and 359, plus 95 appren-
tices in the manual category; and
656 U.S.-citizen employees, 401
non-manual and 226 manual, plus
78 apprentices.
Under the proposed changes, no
employee now entitled to tropical
differential would lose it. But no
new employee would receive it as
of July 1 unless recruited from the
United States, or its territories, or
unless hired from another U.S.
Government agency or a U.S. cit-
izen separated locally from the
United States military service,
without a break in service.
Canal Zone agencies involved
in the proposals will consult with
labor organizations until April 9
and will submit their findings to
the Board later that month. The
Board is scheduled tentatively to
meet May 4 to consider action on
the proposals.

'Wizard of Oz' Selected


For United Way Show


An Isthmus-wide search is on
for a girl, aged 12 to 15, to play
the lead role in the United Way
summer musical production of "The
Wizard of Oz."
This adaptation of the Broad-
way musical will bring the en-
chanting story of Dorothy and her
unforgettable friends to the Canal
Zone stage for the first time.
Dorothy is a little girl from
Kansas who dreams that a cyclone
carries her from her bed to Munch-
kinland where she meets the Scare-
crow, the Tin Woodman, and the
Cowardly Lion. The play is the
story of their adventures along the
yellow brick road to Emerald City
where, they have been told, they
will find the Wonderful Wizard of
Oz who will grant them what they
want most: Dorothy, to go home;
the lion, nerve; the tinman, a


heart; and the scarecrow, a brain.
It was the role of Dorothy in
the movie version of the play that
catapulted a young Judy Garland
to stardom.
The United Way selected "The
Wizard of Oz" for its bicentennial
production to give young people a
share in the excitement that comes
with taking part in a classic work
of theater.
The play, which will be pro-
duced and directed by Bruce
Quinn, has 22 speaking parts.
Quinn will also design the sets.
Words and music of the play's
many memorable songs, including
"Over the Rainbow" are by Harold
Arlen and E. Y. Harburg. L. Frank
Baum wrote the book.
Auditions will be held in June
and production is scheduled for
August.

People in the News


Just about everything important
that has happened to Dora Mc-
Ilhenny has happened during vaca-
tions. Or, as a proper English girl
would say, "on holiday."
Her parents met and married
while her mother was on holiday.
Dora met and married her hus-
hand while she was on holiday.
And she made the decision to
spend her life in the Canal Zone
while she was on holiday.
Ms. McIlhenny's father, an Eng-
lishman, was studying at the
Chicago Art Institute when he met
her mother, also from England,
who was visiting in Chicago.
They married and stayed in
Chicago for several years. And
when the family returned to Eng-
land there were two children, a
son and Dora, who was 6 months
old.
Dora grew up and attended sec-
ondary schools and art school in
Berkshire County, about 20 miles
from London.
When World War II broke out,
she interrupted a budding career
as an artist to join the war effort
in an aircraft factory, where she
was taught to be a "draughts-
woman."
The war over, Ms. McIlhenny
decided it was time for fun and
adventure and that the best way
to find both was to do some travel-
ing. So she began to make plans
to visit an uncle who lived in
Florida.
She never made it to Florida.
Aboard a ship heading for the
United States, the ship's purser,
David C. Mcllhenny, convinced
her to stay in New York City. Six
months later they were married.
McIlhenny continued to spend
most of his time at sea. So much
time, in fact, that his new wife
saw him only three times in the
next 2 years.
On one trip, while his ship was
docked preparing to transit the
Panama Canal, he called an old
friend who worked in the Canal
Zone. The friend, a pathologist at
Gorgas Hospital, invited Mc-
Ilhenny to dinner with other guests
including the Health Director.
A few weeks later, when he
returned to New York, McIlhenny


Julius Miller, active in numerous
civic organizations in Panama, has
been installed as Potentate of Abou
Saad Temple (Shriner). Miller, who
is employed as merchandise man-
ager of TagarOpulos, S.A., is a
Rotarian, a member of the advisory
board of the Salvation Army, the
board of the American Society in
Panama, the board of the Bella
Vista Children's Home, the Mason
Blue Lodge Montgomery No. 19
Pennsylvania and is a life member
of A&A Scottish Rite Balboa. A na-
tive of Philadelphia, Pa., Miller has
lived in Panama for more than 20
years. Abou Saad Temple includes
clubs in Colombia, Puerto Rico,
the Virgin Islands and Panama.


found a cable offering him a job
with the Health Bureau.
Dora, on holiday in England,
received a call from her husband
asking how she would like to live
in Panama.
She remembers every word of
her reply: "I don't care where we
go as long as we go together."
So the Mcllhennys came to the
Canal Zone in 1948, and he went
to work for the Health Bureau,
where he remained until he retired
in June 1973 as Administrator of
the Coco Solo Hospital.
Ms. McIlhenny was employed
by the Canal organization as a
part-time library assistant in 1952.
She became a full-time employee
in 1964 and was promoted to

Are Being Increased . Female

Effective with today's sailing of K or female employees

the SS Cristobal trom New Orleans,
Canal employees traveling at their
own expense will be eligible for
only one type rate. The rate pre-
viously offered "in lieu of home
leave" will be eliminated.
One-way single passenger fare
between New Orleans and Cris-
tobal will be increased from $80
to $135 for adults and from $40
to $67.50 for children under 12
years of age. The increases are
necessary to more adequately
recover operating costs.


Female employees of the Canal
organization now are authorized to
use their maiden names on Gov-
ernment records provided that they
use the name consistently on all
such records.
Also authorized is the use of the
prefix Ms. for female employees in
place of the traditional prefixes of
Miss or Mrs. The Panama Canal
Personnel Manual is being amended
to reflect these changes.
Employees desiring to take ad-

ing Frank Lee at 52-3421 today
or report to Canal Zone College,

Prospective parents are invited
to a series of prenatal lectures to
be held next month in Conference
Room No. 3, second floor, Section
O of Corgas Hospital.
The lectures will be presented
from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednes-
days, March 3, 10, 17 and 24. The
topics will be: medical care during
pregnancy; personal care during

To Be Honored at

RCHS Class Reunion

The Rainbow City High School
class of 1956 will observe the 20th
anniversary of its graduation to-
morrow night with a dinner dance
at the Washington Hyatt Hotel in
Colon in honor of DuBois W. An-
drews, principal of the Paraiso
Junior-Senior High School.
Members of the class who now
reside in New York are expected
to attend the reunion, which will
begin at 9 p.m.
The main speaker for the even-
ing will be Wilfred Barrow, Spe-
cial Assistant to the Director of
the Transportation and Terminals
Bureau.


Professor DuBois W. Andrews


sonnel Records and Administrative
Branch of the Personnel Bureau.
Documentary evidence of the
maiden name, such as a copy of a
birth certificate, should accompany
all requests for use of the maiden
name.
Panamanian-citizen employees
contemplating use of their maiden
names should keep in mind the
legal requirements of the Republic
of Panama. Problems may arise, for
example, with tax deductions and
employment certificates.
The Personnel Bureau empha-
sizes that the maiden name or the
Ms. prefix must be used con-
sistently on all records once the
decision has been made on the
change.
Authorization to make the
changes resulted from a decision
of the Comptroller General of the
United States and later approved
by Cov. H. R. Parfitt.


Club Health Bureau

To Visit Anton for

its Annual Outing

The Club Health Bureau will
visit the picturesque town of Anton
in Code Province on its annual
outing, scheduled for Sunday,
March 14.
Located 81 miles west of Pan-
amna City, Anton is seldom visited
by tourists, although it has many
attractions and its church houses
the image of the "Cristo de Esqui-
pulas."
Among the many activities
planned are dancing and sightsee-
ing tours. Guests are encouraged to
take their cameras, for which they
will find ample use in Anton.
A word of caution: town officials
have advised that no sort of gam-
bling will be permitted.
Invitations for the outing will bh
distributed beginning next week.
Music will be provided by the
Niles Brothers' "Super Discoteque,"
a well-known "Salsa and Soul"
recording group.

Folkloric Dances

To Be Held Each

Sat. in March
The folkloric dance shows held
traditionally at Old Panama during
the dry season will be performed
every Saturday in March beginning
at 10 a.m.
The colorful presentations of
Panama's typical dances, spon-
sored by the Panama Tourist Bu-
reau and Kodak of Panama, will
be performed by the well-known
Conjunto Ritmos de Panamai, under
the direction of Professor Petita
Escobar. Music for the dances will
be provided by one of the finest
typical music groups in the country
directed by Professor Juan Jos6
Escobar. The dancers will make
their entrance and exit to the music
of Professor Frank Weber and his
carnival musicmakers.
The area where the perform-
ances are held, near the ruins of
the old Panama Cathedral, is a
beautiful setting for taking pho-
tographs.
Although there are seating ac-
commodations for approximately
1,000 persons, it is necessary to
arrive early for a good seat due
to the popularity of the shows.
Shows start promptly at 10 a.m.
and last an hour.

Apenas se tuvo noticia aqui del
terremoto de Guatemala, los resi-
dentes de la Zona del Canal co-
rrieron a sus roperos y a sus
alacenas y tambi6n sacaron sus li-
bretas de cheques y a los pocos
dias, muchos articulos eran entre-
gados a organismos religiosos, civi-
cos y fraternales para que se
encargaran de hacerlos llegar a las
victims del terremoto.
Para el 20 de febrero, el Capi-
tulo de la Zona del Canal de la
Cruz Roja Americana habia reci-
bido $3,500 en donaciones en efec-
tivo en las que se incluian cheques
del Primer Ciclo de Curundli y
del 79 grado de la Escuela de
Santa Maria. Otros $1,100 se ha-
bian recibido del Ej6rcito de Sal-
vaci6n, cantidad en la que se
incluia un cheque por $700 donado
por la Asociaci6n de Estudiantes
de la Secundaria de Balboa.
Ademas del efectivo, se envia-
ron a Guatemala 6,300 libras de
alimentos y ropa y habia otras
4,500 libras para enviarse.
Muchas escuelas tomaron part
en el program de ayuda, pues los
ninos train a la escuela una lata,
caja o paquete de comida.
Los estudiantes de la Secundaria

Esta adaptaci6n de la obra mu-

lo que ellos deseen: a Dorothy, el
poder regresar a su casa; al le6n,


valor; al hombre de lata, un cora-
z6n y un cerebro para el espan-
tapajaros.
Fue el papel de Dorothy, en la
pelicula basada en esta obra, lo
que llev6 al estrellato a la joven
Judy Garland.
Senda Unida escogi6 el Mago
de Oz como su producci6n del
bicentenario para proporcionar a

hasta que los aumentos generals

16n dentro del grado empuien el
salario basico de la Zona del Canal
hasta el nivel del salario bisico de
los Estados Unidos. Entonces serin
elegibles nuevamente para futures

401 son no manuales y 226 ma-
nuales mas 78 aprendices.
De acuerdo con los cambios que
se proponen, ninguin empleado que
actualmente tiene derecho a dife-
rencial tropical lo perderA. Pero
ningin empleado nuevo lo recibira
a partir del 19 de julio, a no ser
que haya sido reclutado en otra
agencia del Gobierno de Estados

propuestas consultarin con los or-

Gente en la RNticia


Casi todo lo important que le
ha sucedido a Dora Mcllhenny
durante su vida, ha tenido lugar
en sus vacaciones.
Sus padres se conocieron y se
casaron cuando su nadre estaba
de vacaciones.
Dora conocio y se cas6 con su
esposo mientras estaba de vacacio-
nes.
Y tambidn hizo la decision de
pasar su vida en la Zona del Canal
estando de vacaciones.
El padre de la Sra. Mcllhenny,
ingl6s, estaba estudiando en el Ins-
tituto de Arte de Chicago cuando
conoci6 a su madre, tambien in-
glesa, que se encontraba de visit
en esa ciudad.
Se casaron y se quedaron en
Chicago durante various afios. Cuan-
do la familiar regres6 a Inglaterra
ya tenian dos hijos, un hijo y
Dora, que s6lo tenia 6 meses de
nacida.
Dora creci6 y asisti6 a la secun-
daria y a la escuela de arte en el
Condado de Berkshire, a unas 20
millas de Londres.
Cuando se desencaden6 la II
Guerra Mundial, interrumpi6 una
incipiente carrera como artist para
unirse al esfuerzo de guerra en
una fAbrica de aviones, donde la
convirtieron en "artesana".
Al terminar la guerra, la Sra.
McIlhenny decidi6 que era tiempo
de darse gusto y tener aventuras
y que la mejor manera de encon-
trar ambas cosas era viajando. De
manera que empez6 a hacer pla-
nes para visitar un tio que vivia
en Florida.
No lleg6 a Florida. A bordo del
barco en que se dirigia a Estados
Unidos, el comisario del buque,
David C. McIlhenny, la convenci6
que se quedara en Nueva York y
6 meses despuds contrajeron ma-
trimonio.
Mcllhenny sigui6 pasando la
mayor parte del tiempo en el mar.
En realidad, tanto tiempo, que su
joven esposa s6lo lo vio tres veces
en los pr6ximos 2 afos.
Durante un viaje, mientras su
barco estaba atracado, antes de
transitar por el Canal de Panama,
McIlhenny llam6 a un viejo amigo
que trabajaba en la Zona del
Canal. El amigo, pat6logo en el
Hospital Gorgas, invite a Mc-
Ilhenny a cenar en uni6n de otros
invitados entire los que estaba el
Director de Salubridad.
Pocas semanas despu6s, cuando
regres6 a Nueva York, McIlhenny


Julius Miller, active en numerosos
organisms civicos de PanamA, ha
sido instalado como Potentado
(Shriner) del Templo Abou Saad.
Miller, quien estri empleado como
gerente de mercancias de Tagar6-
pulos, S.A., es Rotario, miembro
del consejo asesor del Ejdrcito de
Salvaci6n, de la directive de la
Sociedad Americana de Panama,
de la junta de fideicomisarios del
Ilogar de Nifias de Bellavista. Ade-
mis, es miembro de la Logia Ma-
son Blue Montgomery No. 19 de
Pensilvania y miembro vitalicio
de la Logia A&A del Rito Escoc6s
de Balboa. Nacido en Filadelfia,
Pensilvania, Miller ha vivido en
Panama por mis de 20 afios. El
Templo Abou Saad tiene clubes en
Colombia, Puerto Rico, las Islas
Virgenes y Panami.

Recuerda exactamente c6mo

Las empleadas de la empresa del
Canal de PanamA estin ahora auto-
rizadas para utilizar sus apellidos
de soltera en documents del Go-
bierno, con tal de que utilicen
consistentemente dicho apellido en
todos los documents oficiales.

prefijo Ms. para las empleadas, en
lugar de los prefijos tradicionales
Miss o Mrs. (Esto, por supuesto en
idioma ingles.) El Manual de Per-
sonal del Canal de Panama esta
siendo enmendado para que refleje
estos cambios.
Las empleadas que deseen apro-
vechar estos cambios deberin diri-

la Direcci6n de Personal. Todas las
solicitudes para el uso del apellido

cien dicho apellido, tales como una
copia del certificado de nacimiento.
Las empleadas panamefias que
piensen utilizar sus apellidos de
soltera deberin tener en cuenta
los requerimientos legales de la
Repiiblica de PanamA. Pueden sur-
gir problems, por ejemplo, con
las deducciones de impuestos y los
certificados de empleo.
La Direcci6n de Personal hace
6nfasis en que el apellido de sol-
tera y el prefijo Ms. deberan ser
usados consistentemente en todos
los documents una vez que se
haya tomado la decision de hacer
el cambio.
La autorizaci6n para hacer los
cambios provino de una decision
del Contralor General de los Es-
tados Unidos, que luego fue apro-
bada por el Gobernador H. R.
