President Carter Visits Canal Zone, Is Briefed by Governor Parfitt

President Jimmy Carter came to
the Canal Zone last Saturday, the
day after he arrived on the Isthmus
to exchange instruments of ratifica-
tion of the new Panama Canal
treaties with Panamanian Chief of
Government Omar Torrijos.
Gov. H. R. Parfitt and Lt. Gen.
D. P. McAuliffe, Commander-in-
Chief, U.S. Southern Command,
met the President when he reached
Paitilla Airport for a flyover of the
Canal. During the round-trip flight
across the Isthmus, they briefed
him on Panama Canal and military
The President would later say,
"I have just returned from a flight
over the Canal . so that I could
see firsthand the professionalism
and dedication that makes this

Canal work and which keeps the
Canal secure."
Governor Parfitt also accom-
panied the President during the
remainder of his activities in the
Zone which included a speech at
Fort Clayton, a tour and briefing
at Miraflores Locks, and lunch with
a group of Canal Zone residents.
Before and during President
Carter's visit, hundreds of Canal
employees were involved in the
elaborate preparations necessary to
provide security, communications,
transportation, press coverage and
the myriad other services required
when a President travels.
Working with Gerard J. Welch,
Acting Director of the Executive
Planning Staff, who was the Canal
organization's overall team leader

and coordinator, were William D.
Young, Chief, Internal Security
Office; William L. De La Mater,
Aide to the Governor; and Victor
G. Canel, Assistant Information
They coordinated each detail of
the Presidential visit with their
counterparts from the White House,
the American Embassy or Panama's
National Guard.
Then as plans became final, the
actual work filtered down to vir-
tually every operating level of the
organization. Not only bureau chiefs
but cooks and carpenters, architects
and janitors did their part to try
to make President Carter's visit to
the Canal Zone a success.
The bulk of the Canal employees'
efforts were directed toward the

member of the President's party, Alvarado, Capt. R. A.
Dickins, Marine Director, and Mrs. Parfitt, shaking
hands with Mrs. Carter. A few seconds later Worsley
told the President that on the very day of his visit-
June 17-67 years ago, he had arrived on the Isthmus.

President's visit to Miraflores Locks.
It was there that Governor Par-
fitt escorted President and Mrs.
Carter to the receiving line, and
introduced .them to Mrs. Parfitt,
Capt. R. A. Dickins, Marine Bu-
reau Director; Carlos A. Alvarado,
Plant Engineer at Miraflores Locks,
and Robert C. Worsley, an old-
timer who had once worked for
the Isthmian Canal Commission.
R. J. Danielson, Superintendent
of the Atlantic Branch of the Locks
Division, was in charge of the
Control House when Governor
Parfitt briefed the President.

Three Locks Division employees
assisted with the briefing-Leroy
Wilson, Jr., explained the Locks
Control Board and assisted Pres-
ident Carter when he turned the
valves to open the gates; Waldo
Gilley, Jr., talked about the gate
operations; and Jos6 A. Gonzalez
briefed on the rising stem valves
that control the water flow from
the lake and between the chambers.
The last stop on the President's
Canal Zone itinerary was the Mira-
flores Overlook where he joined
Civic Council representatives and
union leaders for lunch.

Excerpts From President Carter's Speech

I come here with a sense of history, a sense of appreciation for wIsat you
have accomplished and are accomplishing for our country: a sense of
gratitude to You.

My life would be easier if every Government employee showed the same
consistent combination of efficiency and talent as your group does, and
tee all appreciate the superb performance.

The Senate of the United States has acted, and the Treaties are now a
fact. I am not here to justify them, or to suggest that if you understood the
Trcaties better that you would like them. I know that you understand
them, because for you, they are not just a distant and impersonal foreign
policy abstraction, but something that alters your lives in a direct and
immediate way.
You know, as I do, that a great deal will change as a result of these
Treaties. A few of you will be leaving the only place on Earth you have
ever called home. That is a hard and a painful thing to do. The adjust-
mnents and uncertainties that you now face will not be easy.
I understand that. I understand, too, why you love this place. Seventy-
five years ago, Americans came here as builders. In quiet ways, often
unrecognized, often unappreciated, we have been builders ever since. For
all the rest of your lives, every one of you will he proud, and justifiably so.
to have been part of this Canal, proud of what you have built and
protected and loved.
That is evident, not only from what you say, but what you do. The care
and affection which you continue to show in the operation of the Canal is
clear evidence of the deep feeling which you and the American people
have for the Canal. So I come here today not to win you over tqo the
decision made by me and the American Congress, but because there are
two things that I want very much to say.
First, the American people and I appreciate what you are doing here
and, second, the American people and I care what happens to you.
In the millions of words spoken and written about the Treaties, our
appreciation and our concern have not been clearly expressed.
We have tried to demonstrate these sentiments in the Treaties as well as
in the separate agreements and the annexes.
The rights of American workers will be protected.

last January, the DeMarrs became the first married
couple in the Canal Zone Police Division.

At Work, at Home and at Play-It's a Family Affair

Police officers Cheryl and Glenn
DeMarr have the distinction of
being the first married-to-each-other
members of the Canal Zone police
Glenn, who has been with the
force 3 years, and Cheryl, who
graduated from the police academy
June 2, look forward to sharing the
professional as well as the domestic
side of their lives together. They
feel their familiarity with each
other's work will enable them to be
more sympathetic with and under-
standing of each other than if they
were employed at two different
Married last November in Scotts-
dale, Ariz., they met for the first
time 2 years ago when both at-
tended a party at a policeman's
home in the Canal Zone. At the
time Cheryl was visiting her father,
Charles T. Reeves, a Cristobal High
School teacher.
Glenn, who was born in Ports-
mouth, Va., is the son of Col. and
Mrs. James D. DeMarr who pre-
sently live in Arlington, Va. A high-
light of his youth were the yearly
summer vacations he spent with his
aunt and uncle, Dr. and Mrs. Harry
Dowell of Coco Solo who Glenn
now fondly refers to as his "parents
away from home."
Cheryl was born in Tempe, Ariz.,
and raised in Phoenix, but like
Glenn also spent many of her
summers in the Zone. She says her
step-father, Lt. Comdr. George B.
McGregor, who recently retired
after 22 years with the Arizona De-
partment of Public Safety, influ-
enced her decision to go into law
enforcement. She's found that most
Canal Zone policemen have a very
positive attitude towards their re-
latively new (policewomen were
first employed in 1975) female
Cheryl had been working towards
a bachelor of science degree in in-
terior design at Arizona State Uni-
versity and now plans to attend the
Canal Zone College to receive an
associate of arts in Criminal Justice.
She would like to work in the Youth
Unit as a Juvenile Officer.
Glenn received a bachelor of arts
degree in 1972 from the University

of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
and is midway through Nova's
Masters in Criminal Justice pro-
When off-duty hours coincide the
DeMarrs SCUBA dive, go shelling
or, many times, just enjoy picking
an interesting road and heading
down it in their jeep to see where
it leads. They also like to get in
some practice shooting at the Far-
fan pistol range.
What happens when Household
chores begin to get the better of
them in their busy, two shifts work
and school life? "Well," says Glenn,
"we stand back to back, take three
paces, turn and the first one to lick
the other with a night stick wins."
Seriously, however, Cheryl keeps a
list of chores on the fridge and

they are both willing to tackle what-
ever needs to be done when it
needs to be done. Glenn is proud
that he is both able and willing to
cook and especially likes to prepare
meals in their Chinese wok.
Cooperation seems to be the
name of the game for these young
people who are willing to work
hard at their interesting jobs and
put up with some inconveniences
in order to realize their hopes for
the future, wlich include raising a
family in a rural setting somewhere
in the States.
For the present, the Canal Zone
is a great place to live and work,
say the wearers of badge numbers
579 and 520 who have added a
little to its colorful history with
their "first."

Two Payroll Allotment Plans Combined I Treaty Questions and Answers I

A revised payroll deduction al-
lotment plan which combines the
Savings Account Allotment proce-
dure with the Home Mortgage Al-
lotment procedure became effective
June 1. The change applies only to
Panama Canal employees on the
Isthmus. No change has been made
to payroll deduction allotment pro-
cesses pertaining to Canal employ-
ees in the United States.
Therequest for payroll deduc-
tion allotment is made on Formn
2043, "Allotments From Pay,"
which is available directly to the
employee at the employing divi-
sion. The Allotment From Pay is a
written authorization from an eli-
gible employee for a recurring pay-
roll deduction in a fixed dollar
amount each pay period to be sent
to a financial organization on the
Isthmus for credit to the employee's.
saving account or home mortgage
account. (The Payroll Branch main-
tains a list of approved financial.
Form 2043 provides three func-
tions: establishment of an allotment
to be deducted; change in the
amount of the allotment; or the
cancellation of the allotment.
Change in the amount of an allot-
ment may be authorized only once
each 3 months. If an employee
authorizes allotment changes other
than once each 3 months, his allot-
ment privilege may be withdrawn.
A cancellation, however, can be

made at any time. An allotment
may be initiated at any time pro-
vided a previous allotment with
that institution has not been can-
celed within 3 months.
No provision can be made for
suspending the collection of an al-
lotment for 1 or 2 pay periods a
year and no partial collections of
an allotment will be made. If the
full amount of the allotment cannot
be collected in a pay period, no
collection at all will be made.
An employee on the Isthmus
may have in effect only one allot-
ment for a savings account and one
allotment for a home mortgage ac-
count at any one time. The allot-
ments may be for the same or dif-
ferent financial organizations on the
The new form provides for the
certification of the employee's sig-
nature. The employee signs the al-
lotment form in the space provided
in the presence of the employing
division's administrative officer or
the employee's supervisor. The ad-
ministrative officer or the supervisor
signs the allotment form and enters
his IP number in the space pro-
vided to certify that the signature
is that of the employee. The em-
ployee may complete the form after
his administrative officer or super-
visor has certified his signature.
The financing organization also
must certify to accept the allot-
ment to the employee's savings or

home mortgage account. In com-
.pleting its portion of Form 2043,
the financing organization enters
the identifying three digit number
that it has been assigned by the
Panama Canal Company.
Allotments for Home Mortgage
accounts must include the signature
of the Personnel Bureau's Housing
Assistance Counselor who confers
with the employee and advises him
on the purchase and approves it
before the allotment form is
forwarded to the Payroll Branch.
Under no circumstances will the
Panama Canal Company be respon-
sible for allotments or cancellations
to any financial organization or any
commitments an employee makes
with a financial organization. The
Canal's only obligation is to send
to the bank or financial organiza-
tion the amount the employee has
designated on the form.

Tuition Rates Go Up
The Canal Zone Government
has announced that due to in
creased costs, changes will be made
in rates for tuition students in kin-
dergarten, elementary and sec-
ondary schools for the 1978-79
school year.
Tuition for kindergarten will be
$91 per month; grades 1-6 will be
$188 per month; and grades 7-12
will be $230 per month. Tuition is
paid for a period of 9 months
during the school year.
Tuition at the Canal Zone Col-
lege for full-time students will be
$240 per semester for sponsored
students, or the same as last year.
The rate for non-sponsored full-
time students will be $1,120 per
semester, a slight decrease from
last year's rate. The part-time stu-
dent rates will remain the same,
$25 per credit hour for low tuition
students, and $65 per credit hour
for high tuition students.

Personnel Questionnaire
The Personnel Bureau is sending
out questionnaires to all employees.
The answers will be helpful to Per-
sonnel to plan for personnel
changes that will come about with
the implementation of the treaties.
Employees are requested to com-
plete the questionnaire to the best
of their knowledge, based on the
assumptions listed in the memoran-
dum accompanying the question-
naire, and to give them to their
supervisors for forwarding to Per-
sonnel. Cooperation of employees
will be appreciated, however, em-
poyees are not committed to answer
the questionnaire and may simply
discard it.

Functions Discontinued by Panama Canal Company/Canal Zone
Government and Taken Over by Panama
Under the new Treaty, certain functions currently performed by the
Panama Canal Company/Canal Zone Government will be discontinued
and transferred to the Republic of Panama. These questions and answers
pertain to the implementation of that aspect of the Treaty.
When the Republic of Panama assumes operation of the Panama
Railroad, will U.S. citizens be permitted to continue in employment with
the Railroad?
Neither the Treaty nor the proposed implementing legislation precludes
U.S. citizens being employed by the Government of the Republic of
Panama in transferred activities. The decision as to whether individual
employees are offered jobs is up to the Republic of Panama.
What will happen to employees of the Panama Railroad (and other
activities assumed by the Republic of Panama) on Treaty effective date?
Normal reduction-in-force principles will be applied and .employees
will be reassigned to other positions or terminated depending on their
retention standing. Any individual, even though he retires, who desires
to continue working with one of the transferred functions for the
Republic of Panama may do so provided the Government of the
Republic of Panama desires his services.
May an individual draw retirement pay and continue working for the
Republic of Panama?
May an individual draw severance pay and continue working for the
Republic of Panama?
Yes, if the employee receives salary and benefits that are less than
those provided him by the Canal organization immediately prior to the
entry into force of the Treaty.
If an employee of the Panama Railroad does not wish to work for the
Republic of Panama, would he be required to do so?
No, he has several options: (a) Retire if he is eligible; (b)' Resign;
(c) Accept reassignment to another position if one is offered under
reduction-in-force procedures; and (d) Accept termination with severance
pay, if eligible.
What will be the terms and conditions of employment for current
Panama Canal employees who will work for the Republic of Panama in
one of the transferred functions?
The Treaty provides that, to the maximum extent feasible, the terms
and conditions of employment applicable to such employees will be no
less favorable than those in effect immediately prior to the entry into
force of the Treaty.

Extractos del Discurso del Presidente Carter

Llego aqui con un sentido de historic, un sentido de aprecio por lo que
ustedes han logrado para nuestro pais y les quiero expresar mi gratitud.

Mi vida seria romds fdcil si cada empleado del Gobierno mostrara la misma
combinacion de eficiencia y talent como lo hace vnestro grupo, y nosotros
apteciamos esta extraordinaria labor.

El Senado de'los Estados Unidos ha actuado y los Tratados ahora son
un hecho. No vine aqui para justificarlos ni para sugerir que si entendieran
los Tratados mejor estarian mds de acuerdo con ellos. Sd que los compren-
den, ya que ustedes no son solamente una abstracci6n de political extranjera
distant e impersonal, sino algo que cambia vuestras vidas en una forma
direct e inmediata.
Ustedes saben, como yo, que hard un gran cambio como resultado de
estos Tratados. Algunos de ustedes van a dejar el inico lugar que han
llamado hogar. Esto es algo muy doloroso. La incertidumbre y los ajustes
con los cuales estdn confrontados no serdn fdciles.
Yo comprendo esto. Yo tambidn comprendo por qud quieren tanto a este
lugar. Hace 75 aiios los norteamericanos vinieron aqui como constructors.
Silenciosaniente hemos sido constructores desde esa dpoca; muchas veces
sin ningun reconocimiento ni aprecio. Por el rest de sus vidas, cada uno
de ustedes se sentird justamente orgulloso de haber sido parte de este Canal.
Orgullosos de lo que han construido, protegido y amado.
Esto se aprecia no s6lo en lo que dicen, sino en lo que haden. El cuidado
y el afecto que ustedes siguen demostrando en la operaci6n del Canal es
prueba autdntica del profundo sentimiento que ustedes y el pueblo nor-
teamericano sienten por el Canal. Yo vengo aqui hoy, no para ganarme
su apoyo sino para decides dos cosas.
En primer lugar, el pueblo norteamericano y yo apreciamos lo que
ustedes estdn hacienda aqui y en segundo lugar, el pueblo norteamericano
y yo nos interesamos much en lo que les suceda a ustedes.
En los millones de palabras habladas y escritas en relaci6n con los
Tratados, nuestro aprecio y nuestro interns y consideraci6n no han sido
expresados claramente.
Hemos tratado de mostrar estos sentimientos tanto en los Tratados conmo
en los acuerdos y anexos separados.
Los derechos de los trabaiadores norteamericanos serdn protegidos.

viembre del afio pasado en Scots-
dale, Arizona. Se conocieron hace
2 afios en una fiesta en casa de un.
policia en la Zona del Canal. En
esa ocasi6n Cheryl estaba visitando
a su padre, Charles T. Reeves,
maestro de la Escuela Secundaria
de Crist6bal.
Glenn, que naci6 en Portsmouth,
Virginia, es hijo del Coronel James
D. DeMarr y Sra. que viven ac-
tualmente en Arlington, Virginia.
Recuerda que una etapa importan-
te de su juventud fue el period
en quie pasaba las vacaciones esco-
lares con sus tios, el Dr. Harry
Dowell y Sra., a quien Glenn con-
sidera como sus "segundos padres".
Cheryl naci6 en Tempe, Arizona
y se cri6 en Phoenix. Como 'Glenn,
tambi6n pas6 muchas de sus vaca-
ciones escolares en la Zona del
Canal. Ella dice que su padrastro,
el CapitAn de Corbeta George B.
McGregor, quien recientemente se
jubil6 despu6s de 22 afios de ser-
vicio con el Departamento de Salud
P6blica de Arizona, fue el que in-
fluy6 en su decision de iniciar su
carrera en la fuerza del orden
p6blico. Ella ha descubierto que la
mayoria de los policies de la Zona
asumen ina actitud positive al ver
una mujer desempefiando el mismo
oficio que ellos (las primeras muje-
res policies fueron empleadas en
Cheryl estudiaba para obtener
una Licenciatura en Decoraci6n
Interior en la Universidad Estatal
de Arizona y ahora proyecta estu-
diar en la Universidad de la Zona
del Canal para obtener el titulo en
Justicia Penal. Le gustaria trabajar
en la unidad juvenile.
Glenn recibi6 una Licenciatura
en Arte en 1972 en la Universidad
de North Carolina en Chapel Hill

y esti estudiando a trav6s de la
Universidad Nova para conseguir
una Maestria en Justicia Penal.
Cuando sus horas libres coinci-
den, los esposos DeMarr se dedican
a bucear, a recoger conchas en la
playa, o simplemeite manejar en
su jeep por alg6n camino que les
parezca interesante. Tambi6n les
gusta perfeccionar su punteria en
el campo de tiro de FarfAn.
jQu6 sucede cuando los queha-
ceres dom6sticos se atrasa n debidd
a que ambos estAn trabajando, o
por sus studios? "Bueno", dice
Glenn (en broma), "tenemos un
duelo con nuestros toletes y el que

seriamente, Cheryl mantiene una
lista de los quehaceres y cuando

hay que hacerlos. Glenn se siente
orgulloso de que sabe cocinar y
estA dispuesto a hacerlo, especial-
mente si se trata de preparar co-
midas orientales en su sart6n chino.
La cooperaci6n es la palabra

trasladados a otras posiciones o separados dependiendo de sus aiios de
servicio. Cualquier persona que se jubila y desea continuar trabajando en
las funciones transferidas a PanamA pueden hacerlo siempre y cuando el
Gobierno de PanamA solicite sus servicios.
dPuede una persona que estA jubilada continuar trabajando para la
Republica de PanamA?

LPuede una persona recibir su salario de separacidn y continuar
trabajando para la Republica de PanamA?
Si, si el salario y beneficios de separaci6n son menores al salario qup
devengaba antes de entrar en vigencia el Tratado.
eSi un empleado del Ferrocarril de PanamA no desea trabajar con la
Repiublica de Panama, esta obligado a hacerlo?
No. Tiene varias alternatives: (a) jubilarse, si tiene derecho; (b) renun-
ciar; (c) aceptar traslado a otra posici6n si se le ofrece una bajo el proce-
dimiento de reducci6n de fuerza; y (d) aceptar la separaci6n con sus
