RIFd Employee
Shortly following the receipt of
the Notifications of Reduction in
Force Action, employees of the
Canal organization scheduled for
separation will receive applica-
tion forms and information sheets
on the Displaced Employee Pro-
gram. This program will be ad-
ministered by the Central Exam-
ining Office and is continuously
open to all career and career-
conditional employees of Federal
agencies on the Isthmus who re-
ceive a separation(RIF) noticeand
to those involved in a transfer of
function who decline transfer to
a different commuting area.
The Displaced Employee Pro-
gram will entitle participants to
priority consideration for position
vacancies in the Panama Canal
Commission as well as other Fed-
eral Government agencies served
by the Central Examining Office:
the 193d Infantry Brigade (C.Z.);
the U.S. Air Force Southern Divi-
sion; the U.S. Naval Station, Pan-

'The King and I' Next
Rodgers and Hammerstein II's
The King and I is this year's
choice as the summer musical to
be sponsored by the Canal Zone
United Way. Like last year's re-
sounding success The Sound of
Music, which broke all records
for attendance, The King and I
will be produced and directed by
Bruce Quinn.
Quinn and Sound of Music
co-star Mary "Kit" Taylor won
awards from Panama's National
Union of Performing Artists as
best set designer and best sup-
porting actress, respectively, for
the 1978 production.

ama; the Defense Mapping Agency
(IAGS); the Federal Aviation Ad-
ministration; the Federal High-
way Administration; the U.S. Dis-
trict Court; and the Smithsonian
Tropical Research Institute.
Displaced Canal employeeswill
automatically be included on the
Reemployment Priority List dis-
cussed in last week's SPILLWAY,
but must make application in order
to be included in the Displaced
Employee Program. Representa-
tives of the Personnel Bureau will
visit all major divisions of the
Company/Government that have
displaced employees to conduct
the registration. Information con-
tained on employees' completed
application forms will be reviewed
by the representatives and is then
used to complete registration forms.
It is suggested that the applica-
tions be completed beforethe Per-
sonnel Bureau representatives arrive
for interviews.

United Way Production
The King and I will be 16th in
a series of United Way summer
musical productions that began
in 1964 with another Rodgers
and Hammerstein classic Okla-
homa!

Music for the lavish production
will be furnished by the 79th
Army Band, which has provided
musical support for such earlier
United Way presentations as The
Music Man, West Side Story,
Mane, Fiddler on the Roof, and
The Sound of Music.
Auditions for The King and I
will be held in June.


placementt Rights
divisions may register in the Place-
ment Assisstance Offices at the
Panama Canal Training Center or
the Cristobal Personnel Office.
Application must be made-no later
than 90 days after the date of
separation and may be made as
soon as the notice of separation is
received.
The completed application and
registration forms of each dis-
placed employee will be turned
over to the Central Examining
Office, where the program will be
administered in accordance with
established rules.
Employees' telephone numbers
and addresses given at the time of
registration should be kept cur-
rent at the Central Examining
Office so that displaced employ-
ees may be reached for job inter-
views or offers. Mail for displaced
employees not having a specific
mailing address will be sent in
care of General Delivery, Pan-
ama 1, Panama, or General De-
livery, Colon, in the case of At-
lantic side residents.
Eligible displaced employees may
register for a maximum of five
different job categories at the
grade level from which they sep-
arated, or its equivalent, and for
any lower grades they agree to
accept.
Career employees are eligible
for placement assistance for two
years and career-conditional em-
ployees for one year from the date
of separation or the date of regis-

is later.

U.S. Customs Is


s First Stop When


Importing a Car
If you're moving back to the
United States and plan to take
your car with you, better make
sure it meets U.S. Government
safety and emission standards.
Beginning with 1968 models, motor
vehicles imported into the United
States are subject to safety stand-
ards set by the Motor Vehicle
Safety Act of 1966 and air pollu-
tion control standards established
by the Clean Air Act of 1968.
Cars sent back to the States
must clear U.S. Customs at the
first port of arrival. For Canal em-
ployees, shipping a car aboard the
SS Cristobal means clearing cus-
toms in New Orleans.
Proper documentation must be
shown to provethatthe car meets
U.S. standards. If it fails to; the
car may be admitted under a bond
(cash or surety) equal in value to
the car. The car must then be
brought into conformity within
90 days after importation.
Both the Department of Trans-
portation and the Environmental
Protection Agency warn, however,
thatthe modifications needed to
bring a car into conformity with
the laws may be impractical, im-
possible, or require extensive en-
(Continued on p. 4)


job abolishments are now ex-
pected to be issued late in June.
Earlier, the target date for re-
lease of these notices had been
early in May.
The reason for the change to
June is a new ruling just received
from the Office of Personnel Man-
agement (OPM) in Washington
which requires that most Supply
Division positions-those not in-
volved in supermarket operations
-must be treated as job abolish-
ments rather than transfers of
function to Department of De-
fense (DOD) units. OPM replaced
the former Civil Service Commis-
sion (CSC) in January of this year
as the top authority in Federal
personnel management matters.
The effect of the new ruling is
that 420 Supply Division employ-
ees, plus a few employees in sup-
port positions in other units, who
received letters in February ad-
vising them that they would be
transferred to local DOD units in
October, will now have those letters
canceled and their positions will
be included among those to be
abolished. These employees will
therefore compete for retention
in the Canal organization.
This means that much of the
RIF preparatory work that has
been completed by the Personnel
Bureau in the last four months
will now have to be redone in
order to integrate the additional
420 individuals into their proper
places in the RIF process.
The effect. on Canal employees
generally is that RIF notices cannot
now be ready for issuance until
June instead of the earlier target
date that had been planned.

FOR THE FIFTH TIME John Deming is sworn in as judge of a
Canal Zone Magistrate Court. Executive Secretary of the Canal
Zone J. Patrick Conley administers the oath of office to the newly
named Cristobal Magistrate. Deming, who has been retired for
nine years, was first appointed Balboa Magistrate in 1955 and
was reappointed in 1959, 1963 and 1967.

Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'

Continues at BHS Through Tomorrow Night


Lovers of Shakespearean com-
edy should note that there arbj'st
two more opportunities to attend
the Balboa High School produc-
tion of A Midsummer Night's
Dream. The run continues at the
BHS Auditorium tonight and to-
morrow night, curtain time 8 p.m.
The play, like all of Shake-
speare's comedies, is hilarious...
and confusing! There are three
distinct plots which interweave
and finally end satisfactorily for
everyone. The first plot involves
the nobility of the play, or a group
of people.generally termed as
"the lovers." Duke Theseus will
marry Hippolyta in a few days; in
the meantime a case concerning
another wedding is put before
him. Hermia's father, Egeus, is
determined that she should wed
Demetrius rather than Lysander,
whom she loves. When Theseus
orders her to obey her father,
Hermia arid Lysander escape to
the forest; but not before they
have told a friend, Helena, of their
plans. Helena, in love'with Deme-
trius, immediately tells him of
their escape, and Demetrius sets
out after them with Helena in hot
pursuit.
The second plot involves "the

fairies." Their king, Oberon, and
queen, Titania, are having a dis-
pute. Oberon, determined to get
the better of his wife, orders his
servant, Puck, to place a magic
herb on the eyes of the sleeping
Titania, so that shewill fall in love
with the first thing she sees upon
waking, be it"ape, orcat, or bear."
He also orders the herb placed on
the eyes of Demetrius, for Oberon
has seen Helena chasing him and
has taken pity on her. Puck places
the herb on Lysander, mistaking
him for Demetrius. Lysander, seeing
Helena first when he wakes, falls
madly in love with her. Puck at-
tempts to remedy the mistake by
putting the herb on Demetrius'
eyes; but this ends in disaster, for
now Demetrius-also falls in love
with Helena. Hermia, formerly
loved by two, is now hated by
both, and confusion reigns.
The third plot concerns a group
of common craftsmen, called the
"rustics" or "mechanicals." Under
the dubious leadership of Quince,
they plan and rehearse a play to
perform for the Duke on his wedding
day. Out of the silly, bumbling
group, Bottom is the most stupid
and obnoxious. Puck sees them
rehearsing in the woods and de-
cides to have a little fun byturning
Bottom's head into that of an ass.
The rest of the mechanicals run
away in terror, and Bottom is left
alone . . . alone, that is, except for
Titania, who awakes and falls in
love with him.
Is there any way out of this con-
fusion? All will be explained when
you come to see A Midsummer
Night's Dream. Admission for
children is fifty cents, for adults
$1, and S.A. members are ad-
mitted free of charge.

Intelligent

Donna Baldwin Dreams

Of Future Filled

With Music


"If I could live the life of my
dreams, I would be a performer,"
says Donna K. Baldwin. The Bal-
boa High School senior took a
break from her duties as piano
accompanist to the sixth period
chorus class to talk about the
place that music occupies in her
life.
Donna was recently named a
finalist in the National Achieve-
ment Program for Outstanding
Negro Students, based on her
scores on the Preliminary Schol-
astic Aptitude Test/National Merit
Scholarship Qualifying Test. She
is waiting to hear the final results
of the competition which could
mean a $1,000 National Achieve-
ment Scholarship or even a re-
newable four-year award worth
between $1,000 and $6,000 or
more for four years of college
undergraduate study.
In any case her immediate fu-
ture is secure. She has won a
small scholarship at Emporia State
University in Kansas, her father's
alma mater, to study piano. The
school, she says, has an excellent
music program with a student/
teacher ratio of about eighttoone.
Donna discounts the idea of
actually becoming a performer as
unrealistic because of the com-
-petitiveness- of the field. Instead
she' envisions herself someday
teaching music theory or perhaps
becoming an arranger. She has
studied piano since the age of
nine and spends as much time
on her music as the busy sched-
ule of a high school senior allows.
A good portion of Donna's day
is spent in the BHS music room.
She plays for two chorus classes


and, according to her teachers,
spends lunch hours and after
school time either accompanying
fellow students who want to prac-
tice or practicing herself.
If her name looks familiar it's
because it has appeared so often
on the program for the school's
concerts. In December Donna ac-
companied the Select Chorus in
its presentation of the Christ-
mas portion of The Messiah. Her
current project is that of preparing
for the Gilbert and Sullivan oper-
etta The Pirates of Penzance to
be performed bythe Select Chorus
in May.
But music isn't Donna's only
preoccupation. A love of learning
seems to permeate her life. Ask
what she's interested in, and you'll
find she's interested in every-
thing. Science fascinates her and
she loves to write, especially poetry.
She's editor of a section of the
school yearbook and is tempted by
the idea of a career in journalism.


Perhaps her eclectic approach
to life is the result of being the
offspring of a black Air Force
officer and his Japanese wife and
living in such diverse locales as
Japan, Kansas, Hawaii,Washing-
ton and the Canal Zone.
Japan is her birthplace and she
can communicate in Japanese.
She hopes to return to see her
grandparents this summer when
her family, which includes two
younger sisters and a brother,
visit Japan on their way to an
assignment in the Philippines.
Someday, Donna says, she would
like to live either in Japan or
Kansas-Japan, because it's ex-
citing and because "I always felt
as though I fit in there" and
Kansas"because ofthespaceand
the sky."
The most important thing in life
is being happy, Donna says. And
for Donna happiness is being cared
about, music and learning, inthat
order.

gineering at a cost in labor and
material that is unduly expensive.
A modification that is frequently
needed on vehicles owned and
operated in the Canal Zone is
either the replacement or rein-
stallation of the catalytic con-
verter.
This emission control device is
damaged by the leaded gas used
in the Canal Zone, and as a result
many motorists have them re-
moved locally. Catalytic conver-
ters that are damaged must be
replaced and those that were re-
moved must be reinstalled before
a car will be cleared through
Customs.


While catalytic converters are
not available for sale anywhere on
the Isthmus and must be obtained
from the United States by the in-
dividual, the work of repairing or
reinstalling them can be done by
the Motor Transportation Divi-
sion. When the job is completed,
a vehicle owner may request a
document of certification from
MTD to be countercertified by
C.Z. Customs officials.
Because ittakes twotankfulsof
leaded gas to damagethe catalytic
converter, a vehicle owner will
still be able to drive the car to a
pier for export after the device has
been installed.

To Err Is Human ..

A line was inadvertently dropped
from last week's story on per-
formance awards. Since it con-
cerned money, the SPILLWAY is
rerunning the paragraph.

Recognition may be given to
EEO Counselors. Counselors should
be recognized who have provided
outstanding service through effec-
tive resolution of employee dis-
crimination complaints by devel-
oping rapport with employees, for
offering guidance in the discus-
sion of their complaints, and building
a reputation for prompt, effective
action. The recognition may take
the form of a special citation or
other appropriate symbol of honor.
This honorary award should nor-
mally suffice to confer distinctive
recognition. However, a cash
award should not be precluded as
a complementary recognition in
those outstanding cases in which
the entire contribution extends
beyond equal opportunity to in-
clude other benefits to the Gov-
ernment.

La raz6n por lacualsecambi6a
junio se debe a una nueva deci-
si6n que se acaba de recibir de
la Oficina de Administraci6n de
Personal (OPM) en Washington,
que require que la mayoria de
las posiciones de la Divisi6n de
Abasto-las que no tienen rela-
ci6n con la operaci6n de super-
mercados-sean tratadas como
eliminaci6n de posiciones en vez
de transferencias de funciones a
unidades del Departamento de
Defense (DOD). En enero de este
aio, la OPM reemplaz6 a la anti-
gua Comisi6n de Servicio Civil
(CSC) como la maxima autoridad
en asuntos de administraci6n de
personal Federal.
El efecto que tendr la nueva
decision es que las cartas en-
viadas en febrero a 420 emplea-.
dos de la Divisi6n de Abasto, asi
como a algunos empleados que
ocupan posiciones en otras uni-
dades conexas, avisandoles que
serian transferidos a unidades lo-
cales del Departamento de De-
fensa en octubre, quedan sin efecto.
Las posiciones de esos emplea-
dos seran incluidas en las que
seran eliminadas y por lo tanto
dichos empleados entraran en
competencia para su retenci6n
en la empresa del Canal.
Esto significa que' much del
trabajo preparatorio de la reduc-
ci6n de personal que ya ha sido
completado por la Direcci6n de
Personal durante los Oltimos cua-
tro meses, ahora tendr6 que re-
hacerse a fin de incorporar a las
420 personas adicionales en sus
lugares apropiados en el process
de la reducci6n de personal.
Generalmente, el efecto que
tiene esto sobre los empleados
del Canal es que los avisos de'
reducci6n de personal no estaran
listos para su distribuci6n hasta
junio en vez de la fecha anterior-
mente fijada.

La Obra, 'Sueno de una Noche de Verano' se


Present Hasta Mafana
Los amantes de las comedies
de Shakespeare deben saber que
s6lo tiene-n dos-oportunidades
m6s para ver la producci6n de la
Escuela Secundaria de Balboa de
Suefio de una Noche deVerano,
con representaciones hoy y ma-
fiana enelAuditoriodelaescuela,
comenzando a las 8 p.m.
Como todas las comedies de
.Shakespeare, esta obra es hila-
rante y desconcertante. Hay tres
tramas distintas que se entrela-
zan y que finalmente terminan
en forma satisfactoria para todos.
La primera trama concierne la
clase noble de la obra, o sea un
grupo de personajes general-
mente conocidos como "los
amantes". El Duque Teseo se va
a casarconHip6litaenunoscuan-
tos dias; mientras tanto, tiene
que resolver un caso de otro ma-
trimonio que se le present. El
padre de Hermia, Egeo, est6 deci-
dido a que su hija se case con
Demetrio, en vez de Lisandro, a
quien ella'ama. Cuando Teseo
le ordena a ella a que obedezca
a su padre, Hermia y Lisandro
huyen al bosque; pero, antes de
partir, ellos le cuentan a su amiga
Helena sobre sus planes. Helena,
que ama a Demetrio, de inmedia-
to le cuenta del escape, y Deme-
trio sale en busca de los enamo-
rados, con Helena a la zaga.
La segunda trama concierne a
los "duendes", cuyo rey, Ober6n,


Cena de Spaghetti

La Unidad de Antiguos Dirigen-
tes del Templo Abou Saad ofrece-
r6 cena de spaghetti de 5 a 8 p.m.,
el s6bado 31 de marzo en elTem-
plo Mas6nico de Anc6n.
Los boletos cuestan $2.50 para
adults y $1.50 para nifios hasta
de 12 afios. Se podr6n obtener de
miembros de la unidad el viernes
30 de marzo en la tarde en el
Comisariato de Corozal, ytambi6n
a la entrada del temple.


en Escuela de Balboa
y cuya reina, Titania, est6n en me-
dio de una dispute. Ober6n, deci-
dido a ser mas que su esposa, le
ordena a su sirviente, Puck, que
coloque una hierba magica sobre
los ojos de la durmiente Titania,
para que ella se enamored lapri-
mera cosa que vean sus ojos al
despertar, ya sea "mono, gato, u
oso". Tambi6n le ordena a Puck
que coloque hierba m6gica sobre
los ojos de Demetrio, porqueObe-
r6n ha sentido 16stima de ver que
Helena est6 enamorada de 61.
Puck coloca la hierba sobre Lisan-
dro, confundi6ndolo con Deme-
trio. Al despertar Lisandro, se
enamora locamente de Helena,
por ser ella la primera persona
que ve. Al tratar de reparar su
error, Puck coloca la hierba sobre
los ojos de Demetrio; pero esto
conlleva al desastre, por cuanto
ahora tambi6n Demetrio se ena-
mora de Helena. Ahora, tanto Li-
sandro como Demetrio, que antes
la amaban, odian a Hermia, y se
forma una gran confusion.
La tercera trama concierne a un
grupo de artesanos comunes,
Ilamados los"r6sticos"olos"me-
c6nicos". Con la dudosa direc-
ci6n de Quince, los risticos pro-
graman y ensayan una obra dra-
m6tica para ser representada el
dia de la boda del duque. Bottom
es el mas est6pido y detestable
de todos los tontos y torpes risti-
cos. Al verlos ensayar la obra en
el bosque, Puck decide divertirse
a costillas de ellos y hace que la
cabeza de Bottom se convierta en
la de un asno. El resto de los ris-
ticos huyen aterrorizados, ydejan
a Bottom solo... es decir, solo con
Titania, quien despierta y se
enamora de 61.
LHabra alguna soluci6n para
esta confusion? Para averiguarlo,
vengan a ver la obra Sueiio de
una Noche de Verano. La entra-
da cuesta $1 para adults, $0.50
para nifios, y es completamente
gratis para miembros de la aso-
ciaci6n de estudiantes.


La Talentosa e

Inteligente

Donna Baldwin Suefia

Con Futuro Lleno

De Misica



"Si yo pudiera vivir la vida de
mis suefios, seria artista, afirma
Donna K. Baldwin. La graduanda
de la Escuela Secundaria de Bal-
boa tom6 un breve descanso de.
sus deberes como acompahiante
al piano de la clase coral del sexto
period para hablar sobre el lugar
que ocupa la musica en su vida.
Recientemente Donna fue nom-
brada como una de las finalists
del Programa Nacional de Logros
para Estudiantes Negros Sobresa-
lientes, en base a sus calificaciones
en el Examen de Idoneidad Esco-
16stica Preliminary en el Examen
Calificativo Nacional de Beca de
MWrito. Ella espera tener noticias
de los resultados finales de la
competencia, los cuales podrian
significar una Beca Nacional de
Logros por $1,000, o hasta un
premio renovable de cuatro anos
por suma que fluctua entire
$1,000 y $6,000 o m6s para cua-
tro anos de studios univer-
sitarios.
Detodos modossufuturoinme-
diato est6 seguro. Una pequefia
beca le.fue otorgada para estudiar
piano en la Universidad Estatal
Emporia en Kansas, el alma mater
de su padre. La escuela, dice,
cuenta con excelenle program
de miasica con un promedio de
ocho estudiantes por cada maestro.
Donna consider la idea de
realmente ser artist como algo
irreal debido a la gran competen-
cia que existe en este campo. En
cambio, ella no deja de pensar en
ser alg6n dia maestra de teoria
de m6sica o tal vez arregladora
de misica. Ella viene estudiando
el piano desde la edad de nueve
aiios y dedica tanto tiempo a su
misica como su atareado horario


escolar de graduanda le permit.
Donna pasa gran parte de su
dia en el sal6n de mOsica de la
Escuela Secundaria de Balboa.
Ella acompafia a dos classes cora-
les y, seg6n sus maestros, pasa
sus horas de almuerzo y despu6s
de classes acompaiando a sus
condiscipulos que deseen practi-
car o practicando ella misma.
Si su nombre le es familiar es
porque lo ha visto muchas veces
en los programs de los concier-
tos que present la escuela. En
diciembre Donna acompafi6 al
Coro Selecto en su presentaci6n
navidefa de El Mesias. Actual-
mente se prepare para la opere-
ta The, Pirates of Penzance (Los
Piratas de Penzance), de Gilbert
y Sullivan, que ser6 interpretada
por el Coro Selecto en mayo.
Pero la m6sica no es el 6nico
inter6sde Donna. EstA imbuidade
un deseo de aprender. Si le pre-
guntan en que est6 interesada,
dir6 que tiene interns en todo. La
ciencia le fascina y le gusta es-
cribir, especialmente poesias. Es


editor de una secci6n del anua-
rio escolary le atrae la idea de una
carrera en periodismo.
Talvezsu forma ecl6cticadever
la vida se debe a que es hija de un
official negro de la Fuerza A6rea y
de su esposa japonesa y que ha
vivido en lugares tan diversos
como el Jap6n, Kansas, Hawai,
Washington, y laZona del Canal.
Naci6 en Jap6n y sabe comuni-
carse en japon6s. Ella espera re-
gresar para visitar a sus abuelos
este verano cuando su familiar,
que incluye dos hermanas me-
nores y un hermano, visit el
Jap6n de paso a una nueva asig-
naci6n en las Filipinas. Alg6n dia,
dice Donna, le gustaria vivir en el
Jap6n o en Kansas-Jap6n, por-
que es excitante y porque "siem-
pre me he sentido a gusto alli",
y Kansas, "debido al espacio y el
cielo".
Lo m6s important en la vida es
ser feliz, dice Donna. Y para
Donna lafelicidadconsisteenque
gusten de uno, en la m6sica yen
aprender, en ese orden.

ponerlo en condiciones seg6n lo
estipulado en los reglamentos.
Una modificaci6n que se nece-
sita con frecuencia es el reem-
plazo o la reinstalaci6n del con-
vertidor catalitico.
Este dispositivo para controlar
el escape es averiado por la gaso-
lina emplomada que se usa en la
Zona del Canal, y como resultado
muchos motorists tienen que
hacerlo sacar localmente. Los
convertidores cataliticos averia-
dos tienen que ser reemplazados
y los que fueron sacados tienen
que ser reinstalados para que el
auto pueda pasar la inspecci6n
aduanera.
Aunque los convertidores cata-


liticos no estan en venta

vehiculo, el trabajo de repararlos
o de instalarlos puede ser Ilevado
a cabo por la Divisi6n de Trans-
porte a Motor. Cuando el trabajo
ha sido completado, el propieta-
rio del vehiculo puede solicitar un
document de certificaci6n de la
Division de Transporte a Motor
que tambidn sera certificado por
las autoridades aduaneras de la
Zona del Canal.
Ya que se necesitan dos tanques
Ilenos de gasoline emplomada
para averiar el convertidor el ve-
hiculo podr6 ser manejado hasta
un muelle para su exportaci6n
despu6s que el dispositivo haya
sido instalado.
