Canal Employees Affected By RIF Action
Canal Employees Affected By RIF Action

To Get Priority Job

Second in a series of articles
on placement assistance pro-
grams for Canal employees.
The Personnel Bureau will
soon establish a Reemployment
Priority List (RPL) to assist those
Company/Government employ-
ees separated because of reduc-
tion in force in obtaining reem-
ployment with the Panama Canal
Commission. This special place-
ment effort will become effec-
tive October 1, 1979.
The RPL will contain the names
of all career and career-condi-
tional employees of the Canal or-
ganization who are RIF'd as a re-
sult of Treaty implementation.
These employees will automat-
ically receive priority considera-
tion for all vacancies within the
Panama Canal Commission for
which they are qualified.
In essence the establishment
of the RPL means that manage-
ment is obligated to select a quali-
fied candidate from the list for any
vacancy within the Commission
that is not filled by promotion,
demotion, or reassignment of an
employee who is already on the
The only exceptions to the rule
are the appointment of 10-point

third and final step of the em-
ployee retail credit phase-out
plan which began last September.
Employees who have large
charge account balances to re-
duce prior to October 1, 1979, can
have all or any portion of the bal-
ance transferred to payroll de-
duction. This would eliminate the
monthly interest on charge account
Employees who wish to take
advantage of this arrangement
should make a request in writing
to Agents Accounts Branch, Box K,
Balboa Heights, C.Z.
For requests received by April 16,
the full .charge account balance
will be liquidated by regular de-
ductions over 12 biweekly pay
For requests received after
April 16, the deductions will be
spaced out over the remaining
number of full pay periods in this

A stern view of the Barber Blue Sea Super-Carrier, "Barber Toba,"
shows her massive hinged ramp as she moves through Miraflores
Locks. The ramp, which is the width of a two-lane highway, can be
used to unload the vessel at the rate of 800 tons per hour. The 749
feet long and 105 feet in beam ship made a northbound transit
recently en route to Miami. The vessel can carry 1,800 20-foot
containers, 400 automobiles and 2,150,000 cubic feet of baled
cargo. One of a $200 million fleet of six vessels being introduced
on major U.S. trade routes by the Norwegian, British and Swedish
shipping consortium, the "Barber Toba" and her five sister ships
will be regular customers of the Canal. C. B. Fenton & Co.
are agents for the ship at the Canal.

Pros Give Clues For Outsmarting

Those Clever Household Thieves

The recent rise in daytime bur-
glaries in Canal Zone residential
areas led the SPILLWAY to seek
guidance for its readers on ways
to prevent such crimes.
We asked members of the Canal
Zone Police force' hat people in
the know are doing to keep their
own homes from being burglar-
ized. Lt. George R. Tochterman
and Sgt. Henry Twohy had some
practical advice to offer which
they themselves heed in their
day-to-day living.
The officers stressed that aware-
ness to the point of suspicious-
ness on the part of all citizens is
the key to preventing household
burglaries. Tochterman said that
residents should report to the
police any suspicious-looking
persons seen loitering in housing
areas. Experience has shown
that many burglaries are com-
mitted after a house has been
carefully "cased" by the thief to
find out when the members of the
household leave for school and.
work and what time the domestic
help arrives.
If the suspect is on foot, Toch-
terman said, try to get a descrip-
tion for the police. If the person is
parked in or cruising around a
residential area, the make, color
and license plate number of the
vehicle could prove to be valuable.
Don't be fooled by well-dressed
children that are seen hanging
about, Tochterman added. Bur-
glars and their accomplices come
in all shapes and sizes.
Tochterman brought up the fact
that often residents do not know
the full names and the addresses
of their own domestic employees.
Residents should know enough
about any individuals having reg-
ular access to their home to be
able to locate them, he said.
Hand in hand with public aware-
ness is cooperation within the
community. Twohy said, "I wouldn't
dream of going off for the week-

end without asking my neighbors
to keep an eye on my house."
A call to the police by a concerned
neighbor has led to many an arrest.
Neighbors .should know when
you are leaving and when you will
return and whether friends or
workmen might come by the
house while you are away. A neighbor
can also pick up newspapers that
would otherwise collect on your
doorstep and tip off a would-be
Domestic employees should be
kept informed on adailybasiswho
is expected to come by the house.
"No one should be allowed through
the door without your approval,"
Twohy said.
A popular modus operandiof
household burglars is to pullupat
a residence in a commercial ve-
hicle and tell the maid that they
are supposed to pick up an air-
conditioner or a television for re-
pair, Tochterman said.
A maid should be instructed to
check with her employer if she

World Maritime Day-1979

Is Being Observed Today
The Secretary General of the
Inter-Governmental Maritime
Consultative Organization (IMCO)

would help his posture.
When the Balboa Elks were ap-

to use Lodge funds to have a chair
built and make a gift of it to the
At a ceremony held last Wednes-
day at the Balboa Elks, the chair
,was donated to the Iile boy in
memory of humanitarian Tommy
Thomson who died early this
year. His father brought George
to the Canal Zone in his produce
truck. Jolly Beckwith transports
cabbages from Cerro Punta to
market in Panama once a week.
His mother and two sisters also
came along for the presentation
of the chair which also will be a
big help to those who take care
of him.

The chair was especially built
by J. A. Preston of New York. It is
padded and can be adjusted to
hold him as he grows. Other fea-
tures include a large tray to hold
the food he is fed or for playing;
supports which are adjustable for
his feet; an adjustable support for
his head and other features. It
also can be made into a bed. Cost
of the chair was $450.

Throughout the years, the
compassion and good will of the
Balboa Elks has been manifested
in numerous acts of benevolence
and social service. The Lodge
sponsors a Christmas party and
donates gifts every year to stu-
dents of Hellen Keller School for
the Blind in Bethania and it pro-
vides scholarships for outstand-
ing students of the school. A stu-
dent, who was given a special
grant by the Lodge to attend the
National Conservatory of Music
in Panama, is nowteaching music
to blind piano students in Chiri-

BACK TO BASICS-A fourth grader at Diablo Elementary School
gets a penmanship lesson from Tom Shoemaker of the Palmer
Method Handwriting Co. The Palmer Method was re-introduced
into Canal Zone schools this school year after parents and
teachers expressed their view that good handwriting should be
a goal of the curriculum. Shoemaker acted as a consultant to
the elementary teachers last month, explaining techniques for
teaching handwriting and giving classroom demonstrations
with students.

It's A Crime To Get Burglarized

Outsmarting Thieves
(Continued from page 1)

has any doubt about a visitor,
Twohy said. But he reemphasized
that the caller should be kept out-
side .the, door. ..Brazen .daytime
burglrsi'allobed insideowhile the
maid makes a call will steal all
they can while the maid is out of
sight, he said.
In line with that, Twohy said he
keeps his doors locked in the day-
time even when he is at home.
Thieves have been known to bur-
glarize one part ofthe house while
its occupants are in another.
The old standby rule that you
should leave a light on when you
are going to be away from home
after dark is one that both officers
follow. Twohy goes a step further
and has installed a timing device
that turns a light in his home on
automatically at dark and turns it
off at dawn:
Twohy said his home will soon
be protected by a burglary alarm
system that is scheduled to be in-
stalled under the Housing Man-
agement Branch's liveability pro-
gram. Grills for the jalousie-type
windows that thieves can break
through with such ease are also
available under the same program.
Other safeguards that will be

installed without charge for res-
idents that call the Housing Man-
agement Branch to request them
are pick-plates, stainless steel
guards that keep door latches
from being picked opened; bur-
glar pins, which are screwed into
the framing on the hinge side of
the door to prevent the door from
being removed; and plywood panels,
used to seal off doors with jalousie-
type windows in them.
But for all the precautions res-
ident takes, burglaries will still
occur. As Tochterman put it, "For
every suggestion we make for
preventing break-ins, there are
10 guys out there thinking up
easier ways to do it."
He recommends that residents
inventory all their valuables and
put a permanent identifying mark
on them. Then if a burglary oc-
curs, the victim will know what he
or she lost and will be ableto iden-
tify the goods if they are recovered.
Tochterman suggests photo-
graphing valuables as-a way of
identifying them in case of theft.
He recently photographed all of
his wife's jewelry for just that

a unit, in securing adequate out-
put from a unit, and in developing
and training employees.
Supervisors are also judged for
time and effort spent to advance

C6mo Burlar a los Ladrones
(Viene de la pigina 1)

Si una empleada tiene alguna
duda sobre algin visitante, debe
consultar con su patr6n o patro-
na, dijo Twohy. Pero recalc6 que

'Hay lIdrones audaces que, si se
les permit entrar mientras la em-
pleada llama a la patrona porteld-
fono, se roban todo loquepueden
mientras tanto, aFiadi6.
De acuerdo con ese precepto,
Twohy dijo que 61 mantiene sus
puertas cerradas con Ilave duran-
te el dia, aunque 61 est6 en casa.
Se han dado casos de ladrones
que roban en una puerta de la
casa mientras los ocupantes se
encuentran en la otra parte, dijo.
,La vieja regla rutinaria de dejar
una luz encendida cuando se deja
la casa al anochecer la siguen los
dos oficiales. Twohy va m6s allB y
ha instalado un aparatoque auto-
maticamente enciende una luz en
su casa al anochecer y la apaga al
Twohy dijo que su hogar pronto
estar6 protegido por un sistema
de alarma contra ladrones que
sera instalado en base al progra-
ma de mejoras de la Divisi6n de
Administraci6n de Viviendas.
Tambi6n disponibles bajo este
program hay enrejillados para
las ventanas de persianas quef6-
cilmente usan los.ladrones para
penetrar en las casas.

Otros dispositivos de seguridad
que seran instaladas sin cargo al-
guno a los residents que las pi-
dan a la Divisi6n de Administra-
ci6n de Viviendas son: l6minas
de acero inoxidable que impiden
que los ladrones violenten las ce-
rraduras; barras de metal incrus-
tadas en el marco de la puerta en
el lado de las bisagras para evitar
que las puertas sean desplazadas
totalmente; y 16minas de madera
tipo "plywood" para sellar puer-
tas con persianas.
Sin embargo, por muchas pre-
caucionesquesetomen, losrobos
seguir6n ocurriendo. Tal como
sefiala Tochterman, "Por cada
sugerencia que hacemos para
evitar los robos, hay 10 individuos
inventando maneras de robar".
Tochterman recomienda que
los residents hagan inventarios
de todas sus pertenencias de va-
lor y que les pongan una marca
que sirva para identificarlas. Si
entonces tuviera lugar un robo,
la victim sabria loque ha perdido
y podria identificar los bienes si
son recuperados.
Tochterman sugiere que se to-
men fotografias de los objetos de
valor como una manera de identi-
ficarlos en caso de robo. Recien-
temente 61 tom6 fotos de las joyas
de su esposa con tal prop6sito.
