President Carter Directs


More Energy Conservation


President Carter has issued a
memorandum to Government
agencies on the reduction of
energy use by the Federal Gov-
ernment due to an expected shortage
of fuel resulting from the Iranian
conflict.
The Panama Canal organiza-
tion has been directed to develop
specific plans and implement ad-
ditional conservation measures
in keeping with the magnitude of
the problem.
Past conservation efforts in the
Canal Zone have been successful
through changes in operating
procedures and adjustments.
However, the Panama Canal is
committed to meet the Pres-
ident's conservation goals and
Canal bureaus and independent
units are requested to review
their existing energy conserva-
tion programs to determine if ad-


ditional reductions in energy use
can be made.
Canal employees are requested
to join in the energy conserva-
tion effort and to help comply with
the President's fuel reduction
goals.
Here are a few conservation
measures that can be put into
practice immediately:
Reduce off-hour and security
lighting, except where it is essen-
tial for safety and security pur-
poses;
Reduce lighting levels where
possible;
Turn off all office and facility
lights and air-conditioners where
no work is being performed;
Combine and consolidate offi-
cial vehicle trips where possible.
Encourage use of the train for
travel across the Isthmus.


PAST AND PRESENT TAKE A LOOK AT THE
FUTURE-Civil Affairs Director Fred Cotton
briefs three former directors of the bureau on
changes that will occur with the implementa-
tion of the Panama Canal treaties on October 1.
Seated from left are Col. Richardson Selee, who
lives in the Republic of Panama, and Frank


Castles and Imo Everson, who are visiting the
Isthmus. Only one other man. Henry Donovan,
has served as head of the Civil Affairs Bureau
which provides such essential community serv-
ices as schools, post offices, police and fire
protection.

Judge Darrell F. Brown Appointed


Arkansas' Deputy
When Judge Darrell F. Brown
left the Isthmus at the end of
February for his new position in
the United States, he took with
him much more than nearly six
and a half years of experience as
Magistrate on the Atlantic side
and a number of awards and
trophies. Traveling with Judge
Brown, who came here as a
bachelor in October 1972, were
his wife, the former Angela Maria
Scott of Panama, and their two
children, 17-month old Darrell Jr.
and daughter Dionne, two months
of age.
Last Monday Judge Brown
assumed his new duties as
Deputy Attorney General in the
State Attorney General's Office
in Little Rock, Ark.
Born in Horatio, Ark., Judge
Brown earned a bachelor of arts
degree in psychology and sociology
at the University of Arkansas,
where he later received his law
degree. Prior to his appointment
in the Canal Zone, he served with
a private firm in Little Rock.
While serving as Cristobal
Magistrate, Judge Brown was
appointed by both President Ford
and President Carter to serve as
special Federal District judge, des-
ignated to sit in special cases
where original jurisdiction was in


Attorney General
the Federal District and not in the
Magistrate's Court.
Succeeding Judge Brown as
Cristobal Magistrate is Judge
John E. Deming, who retired in
March 1970 following 15 years of
service as Magistrate of the
Balboa Court. Judge Deming is a
native of Nebraska where he was
in private legal practice before
being appointed Magistrate of the
Balboa Court in March 1955.
Judge Deming, who assumed
his new duties on Monday, came
to the Isthmus from Dothan, Ala.,
where he and his wife have been
making their retiremenrit home. He
will serve as Cristobal Magistrate
until October 1 of this year.

New Play Opens Tonight At Cristobal High


A Broom for the Bride will be
presented by Thespian Troupe
No. 217 at 8 p.m., March 9, 10
and 11 in the Cristobal High
School Auditorium.
This farce by George Batson
uses an impending wedding cer-
emony as the basis for some
highly improbable situations. Elena
Subrez and Steve Todhunter play
the bride's parents, Lisa Barret is
the bride, Jacqueline Sell plays


her mother-in-law, John Rowell
is the timid groom, and John
Holland plays the newspaper re-
porter who masquerades as two
other characters.

The play is directed by Cristobal
High School drama sponsor Rich-
ard Bock, assisted by student di-
rector Ron Palomares and stage
manager Scot Slimon. Tickets may
be purchased at the door.


It is performance rating time
again and you could be recom-
mended for a cash award for
doing a superior or an outstand-
ing job during the annual rating
period. The current rating period
extends from April 1, 1978 through
March 31, 1979.
In 1978 superior workmanship
and outstanding performance paid
off for approximately 747 em-
ployees who received awards to-
taling about $121,000. Of these
334 employees received outstand-
ing performance ratings and 429
employees were recognized through
special achievement awards for
superior job performance. Quality
step increases were also granted
to 16 employees.
The rating plan has been set up
to provide a method of evaluating
the work performance of employ-
ees and recognizing their contri-
butions to the efficiency and econ-
omy of the Canal organization. It
also helps to improve employee
performance by strengthening su-
pervisor-employee relations; identi-
fying work standards and require-
ments; informing employees of
these standards and require-
ments; recognizing employees
who have made worthwhile sug-
gestions, as well as those su-
pervisors who have been suc-
cessful in eliciting suggestions
from the employees and those
incentive awards coordinators who
have played an active role in the
promotion of the program; and
providing a guide to personnel
actions.
Under the rating program an
employee may receive a rating of
Unsatisfactory, Satisfactory, or
Outstanding. Written justifi-
cations are required for Outstand-
ing and Unsatisfactory ratings.
Employees may be notified orally
that their ratings are Satisfactory.
In each case, the supervisor must
discuss and notify employees of
their ratings.
An Unsatisfactory rating is
assigned when the overall impact
of the employee's performance is
such that removal from the posi-
tion will be considered unless


there is prompt, substantial im-
provement.
A rating of Satisfactory is given
when performance falls within a
broad band of performance rang-
ing from just above Unsatisfac-
tory to just below Outstanding.
By laws an Outstanding rating
may be given only when all as-
pects of performance both exceed
normal requirements and areout-
standing and deserve special
commendation.
An Outstanding rating does not
automatically entitle an employee
to an award. The justification for
the Outstanding rating may, how-
ever, be used as a basis for
recommending a cash award of
up to $350, depending on the
employee's grade. Another fea-
ture of the program is that non-
manual and postal employees in


permanent positions may receive
a quality step increase if recom-
mended for an Outstanding rating.
It is not necessary for an em-
ployee to receive an Outstanding
rating in order to be eligible for a
cash award. Employees who ex-
ceed normal requirements in one
or more major aspects of the job
and meet the acceptable level of
competence in all other aspects
may be recognized through a
special achievement award based
on superior performance sus-
tained over a minimum of six
months.
If you are not recommended for
a performance award this year,
familiarize yourself with the pro-
gram and set a goal to receive an
award next year. Next week, the
SPILLWAY will carry the criteria
for performance awards.

The traveling musical stage
show Up With People is on the
Isthmus.
The cast is composed of 80 to
100 young people of different
nationalities, backgrounds and
cultures whose message is that
people are what count. Through
their bright, exciting music,
spirited choreography and color-
ful costumes Up With People
aims its two-hour concert at
building bridges of understand-
ing and communication among
people all over the world. Their
performance ranges over inter-
national folk songs and pag-
eantry, hit tunes and dances of
the past 50 years, and original
compositions, all backed by a
complete instrumental section of
guitars, percussion and piano.
The group arrived in Panama
on March 5 andwilltourthecoun-
try giving concerts through April 5.
Up With People will perform at


the Balboa Stadium at 7:30 p.m.
March 17. All tickets will cost $2
and a portion of the proceeds will
go to the Canal Zone United Way.
But music is only half of what
Up With People is all about. It is
also an educational corporation
whose goal is to help young
people who participate in the
program discover their own po-
tential and develop leadership
skills. Currently more than 500
young people from close to 20
different countries make up the
five Up With People casts.
At the end of their 11-month
tour, during which time they will
live with about 80 different host
families, visit 100 communities
and travel approximately 32,000
miles, these young people will
return to their homes in a better
position to make a constructive
contribution, as well as to achieve
their personal goals.
Traveling with each cast is an

experienced staff responsible for
insuring that the members take
full advantage of learning oppor-
tunities in each community vis-
ited. The opportunities come in
many forms, sometimes involving
guest speakers, tours or demon-
strations in addition to the re-
sponsibilities students are ex-
pected to take in the operation
of the show itself.
Since it began 10 years ago,
more than. 4,500 young people
have taken part in the Up With
People program. They have given
performances in such settings as
Royal Albert Hall, London, the
1972 Olympic Games in Munich,
the Super Bowl X in Miami, the


White House, Carnegie Hall and
Lincoln Center, New York. Last
year they gave 32 performances
in six cities of the People's Re-
public of China, marking the first
multi-national youth group to
visit China since 1949.
This year their schedule in-
cludes invitations to 500 cities
and 14 countries in North Amer-
ica, Europe, South and Central
America.
Participation in the Up With
People program is open to per-
sons between the ages of 18 and
25 who are high school graduates
and single. Talent is not a pre-
requisite, since a segment of each
cast is recruited from choral and


drama groups. Interviews are
held after every performance for
young people interested in be-
coming part of the group.
Up With People is an indepen-'
dent, non-profit organization not
affiliated with any religion or any
other organization.
About half of its annual rev-
enues come from performances
and sales, a portion of which
goes to the benefit sponsor.
Another third of the revenue
comes from fees paid by the stu-
dents who participate in the pro-
gram, and the remainder from
gifts and grants from individuals
and from investment and royalty
income.

From left, standing, Al Jackson, first base; Eddie "The King" Feigner;
John Bateman, catcher; and, kneeling, Eddie Feigner Jr., shortstop.


The King and His Court will
reign in the Canal Zone once again!
Pitcher Eddie Feigner is bringing
his four-man fast-pitch softball
team to the Isthmus for the third
time to compete against nine-
man all-star teams from the
Canal Zone and Panama.
The overwhelming success of
last year's performance put more
than $2,000 into the coffers of
the Canal Zone United Way. The
event will be sponsored again
this year by Viceroy.
The King and His Court are the
Harlem Globetrotters of softball,
combining playing skill and quips
to the audienceto provide rousing
entertainment. The team barn-
storms all over the United States
and sometimes outside, covering
from 20 to 30 thousand miles
during its February-to-October
season.
The star of the show is "King"
Eddie Feigner, who has dazzled
crowds with a seemingly endless
repertoire of pitches and styles
since he began his career 34
years ago. In his post-game soft-
ball clinic, some.of his pitches are
"straight" and some are just for
laughs. He gives the audience his
old standbys-pitches behind the
back, through the legs, blind-


folded, and from second base. He
picks off two base-runners before
they even seem to realize the ball
is at first base, not the plate.
He puts tremendous speed on the
ball with every conceivable kind
of wind-up and can make the ball
break sharply in any direction.


The team this year is composed
of Feigner, first baseman Al Jack-
son, shortstop Eddie Feigner Jr.,
and catcher John Bateman. The
quartet won 209 out of the 230
games played in 1978.

Tickets will be $1 each.

Secundaria de Crist6bal Escenifica Obra


A Broom for the Bride (Una
Escoba Para la Novia) sera esce-.
nificada por la Compaiia de Arte
Dramatico NQ 217 a las 8 p.m. los
dias 9, 10 y 11 de marzo en el
Auditorio de la Escuela Secunda-
ria de Crist6bal.
Esta farsa de George Batson usa
una ceremonia nupcial inminen-
te como fundamento para algu-
nas situaciones inverosimiles. Elena
SuBrez y Steve Todhunter hacen
el papel de los padres de la novia,
Lisa Barrett es la novia, Jacque-


line Sell es la suegra, John Rowell
es el novio timido, y John Holland
es el periodista que se hace pasar
por otros dos personajes.

La obra es dirigida por el patro-
cinador dram6tico de la Escuela
Secundaria de Crist6bal, Richard
Bock, quien es asistido por Ron
Palomares, el director estudian-
til, y Scot Slimon, el director de
escena. Los boletos para la fun-
ci6n se pueden obtener a la en-
trada del auditorio.


Nuevamente ha Ilegado el mo-
mento de hacer la evaluaci6n del
desempefio en el trabajo y usted
podria ser recomendado para que
reciba un premio en efectivo por
su servicio sobresaliente durante
el period de evaluaci6n annual
que se extiende desde el 12 de
abril de 1978 hasta el31 demarzo
de 1979.
En 1978, un total de 747 em-
pleados recibieron premios por
servicios y desempenio sobresa-
lientes, ascendlendo el total de
premios en efectivo a la suma de
$121,000. De este total; 334 em-
pleados recibieron evaluaciones
por desempeflo sobresaliente y
429 empleados recibieron reco-
nocimiento mediante premios de
logro especiales por el desempe-
io superior en eltrabajo. Tambi6n
se otorgaron aumentos a 16 em-
pleados por la calidad superior de
su trabajo.
El plan de clasificaci6n se ha
establecido como medio para eva-
luar los servicios de los emplea-
dos y reconocer su contribuci6n
a la eficiencia y economic de la
organizaci6n del Canal. AdemBs,
ayuda a los empleados a mejorar
el desempenio de su trabajo me-
diante el fortalecimiento de las
relaciones entire supervisor y su-
balterno; la identificaci6n de
normas y requisitos del trabajo; la
informaci6n a los empleados de
dichas normas y requisitos; el re-
conocimiento a los empleados
que han hechosugerenciasvalio-
sas y a los supervisors que han
logrado obtenerlas, asi como a
los coordinadores del program
de premios por incentive que han
participado activamente en la
promoci6n de dicho program; y
la orientaci6n con respect a las
medidas tomadas por la Direcci6n
de Personal.
De acuerdo con este program,
el desempenio de un empleado
puede ser clasificado como "insa-
tisfactorio", "satisfactorio", o "so-
bresaliente". Se require una
justificaci6n por escrito cuando
la clasificaci6n es "sobresalien-
te" o "insatisfactoria". Los em-
pleados pueden ser notificados
verbalmente que sus evaluacio-
nes son "satisfactorias". En cada
caso el supervisor debe notificar
al empleado y conversar con 61
acerca de dicha evaluaci6n.
Una clasificaci6n "insatisfac-
toria" es indicada cuando el im-
pacto total del desempefiodel em-


pleado es tal que habr6 que cam-
biarlo de la posici6n que ocupa, a
menos que se observen mejoias
rapidas y substanciales.
Una clasificaci6n "satisfacto-
ria" es concedida cuando el de-
sempefio cae dentro de una am-
plia escala de desempefio que
fluctia entire "insatisfactorio" y
"sobresaliente".
Por ley, una clasificaci6n "so-
bresaliente" puede darse s6lo
cuando todos los aspects del de-
sempefio exceden los requisitos
normales, son sobresalientes y
merecen encomio especial.
Una clasificaci6n "sobresaliente"
no da derecho automaticamente
a un empleado a recibir premio.
La justificaci6n para la clasifica-
ci6n "sobresaliente" puede, no
obstante, ser usada como base
para recomendar un premio en
efectivo.hasta $350, segin el gra-
do que ocupe el empleado. Otro
detalle del program es que los
empleados de categorfa no ma-


nual y de correos que ocupan po-
siciones permanentes pueden re-
cibir aumentos por calidad superior
de trabajo si son recomendados
para una clasificaci6n "sobresa-
liente".
Un empleado necesariamente
no tiene que recibir una clasifica-
ci6n "sobresaliente" a fin de ser
eligible para un premio en efec-
tivo. Los empleados que exceden
los requisitos nornmales en uno o
mas aspects del trabajo y satis-
facen el nivel acceptable de com-
petencia en todos los otros aspec-
tos pueden recibir reconocimien-
to por medio de un premio de lo-
gro especial basado en el desem-
pefio superior sostenido durante
un period minimo de seis meses.
Si a usted no se le recomienda
para premio por desempefo este
afo, familiaricese con el progra-
ma y prop6ngase recibir un pre-
mio el pr6ximo afo. La pr6xima
semana el SPILLWAY publicara las
bases para la clasificaci6n.

prenden oradores invitados, giras
o demostraciones, mas las res-
ponsabilidades que se espera que

losj6venesqueest6ninteresados

Especticulo Deportivo Sobresaliente de Bola Suave


De pie, de izquierda a derecha, Al Jackson, primer base; Eddie
"El Rey" Feigner; John Bateman, receptor; y de rodillas, Eddie
Feigner Jr., torpedero.


El Rey y su Corte reinaran en la
Zona del Canal una vez mas. El

traerA al Istmo por tercera vez a su
equipo de bola suave de lanza-
miento rApido de cuatro hombres,
para competir con equipos este-
lares de nueve hombres de la
Zona del Canal y de Panama.
El 6xito abrumador de la pre-
sentaci6n del afio pasado aumen-
t6 en mas de $2,000 los fondos de
la Senda Unida de la Zona del
Canal. El event sera patrocina-
do nuevamente este afio por Vi-
ceroy.
El Rey y su Corte son los Trota-
mundos de Harlem de bola suave,
y combinan las pericias del juego
con pullas al auditorio a fin de dar
un toque excitante a la funci6n.
El equipo se ha presentado en to-
dos los Estados Unidos y a veces
en el extranjero, recorriendo de
20,000 a 30,000 millas durante
la temporada desdefebrero hasta
octubre.
El astro de la funci6n es "El
Rey" Eddie Feigner, quien ha des-
lumbrado alas multitudes, con su
repertorio aparentemente inter-
minable de lanzamientos y esti-
los, desde que inici6 su carrera
hace 34 aios. Durante su clinica
despues del juego de bola suave,
algunos de sus lanzamientos eran
en serio y otros eran s6lo en bro-
ma. Impresiona al auditorio con


lanzamientos de espalda, entire
las piernas, con los ojos venda-
dos, y desde la segunda base. Eli-
mina a dos corredores sin que se
den cuenta que la pelota est6 en
la primera base, y no en el plato.
Aplica tremenda velocidad a la
pelota con diferentes mociones
de lanzar, y puede hacer que la


bola cambie bruscamente de di-
recci6n.
Este aio el equipo esta com-
puesto de Feigner; Al Jackson,
primera base; Eddie Feigner Jr.,
torpedero; y John Bateman, re-
ceptor. El cuarteto gan6 209 de
los 230 partidos jugados en 1978.
