Vice President applauds


PCC housing turn over


To communicate his pleasure
over the condition of 168 Atlantic-
side housing units that were
transferred to Panama last week,
Vice President Jorge Illueca has
written the following comments to
Panama Canal Commission Ad-
ministrator D. P. McAuliffe:
"I would like to take this
opportunity to publicly commend
the Panama Canal Commission
for the excellent state of repair and
maintenance we observed in the
units transferred, which evidences
the high level of commitment and

for October

The Panama Canal Commission
Office of Financial Management
has announced that employee
electricity rates in Commission
housing areas will increase 8.6
percent effective with meter read-
ings for October 1982 consump-
tion.
The Commission has taken this
action, in accordance with its
comparability pricing policy, in
order to bring employee electric
rates in line with the Residential
Power Rate Schedules of the
Tennessee Valley..uthority.
The 8.6 percent increase.also
applies to occupants of Panama

ing and Department of Defense
civilians living in military quarters.


efficiency with which the Canal
administration fulfills its im-
portant responsibilities."
The transfer of the housing
units, which took place in a public
ceremony in Coco Solo, marks
another milestone in the im-
plementation of the 1977 Panama
Canal Treaties. It brings to 1,252
the total number of units trans-
ferred by the Commission in
accordance with treaty provisions.
The Commission units respon-
sible for coordinating the success-
ful transfer were the Office of
Executive Planning, the Office of
Executive Administration, the Of-
fice of General Counsel, the
General Services Bureau, and the
Engineering and Construction Bu-
reau. At a staff meeting this week
the Administrator commended all
these involved in the transfer for
their fine work.

Bar clears way for more anchorage space


An updated version of an old
method is being used to expedite
completion of Phase Two of the
Gatun Lake Anchorage expan-
.sion project. Under the direction of
the Engineering Division's Civil
Branch, the project is a joint
effort involving several Com-


193d salutes PCC on Canal's 68th anniversary
Joining with Commission employees, who operate and maintain the
Panama Canal, in the commemoration of the 68th anniversary, of the
opening of the waterway on August 15, were members of the armed
forces, who are responsible to protect it. A congratulatory letter from
Brig. Gen. Fred F. Woerner, Commander of the 193d Infantry Brigade, is
reproduced below.






Headquarters
193d Infantry Brigade (Panama)
Fort Clayton, Panama

22 August 1982

Dear Mr. McAuliffe:
The officers and soldiers of the 193d Infantry Brigade
(Panama) extend congratulations and best wishes to you and
the members of the Panama Canal Commission on this the
68th anniversary of the inauguration of the Panama Canal.
Because of its illustrious history, the Panama Canal
can be proud of its reputation and contribution to
maritime commerce. We share with you the conviction that
your future accomplishments will match those of your
magnificent past.
The 193d Infantry Brigade (Panama) salutes you and
the Commission employees as we proudly share with you
our commitment to maintain the safety of this vital
waterway.

Sincerely,

mission units. Among those play-
ing active roles are the Engineering
Division's Surveys Branch, the
Dredging :Division, and the In-
dustrial Division , .
When the project is completed,
the Gatun Lake Anchorage will
have increased in size by approxi-
mately 50 percent. To create an
anchorage such as this, the area
must be cleared of obstacles down
to a depth of 45 feet. Until recently,
this was done by sending Industrial
Division divers down to attach
dynamite to trees. After these
obstacles were blasted out, a
Surveys Branch crew targeted
anything that was missed, and the
divers would prepare for the
blasting all over again.
Lately, a new twist of an old idea
has resulted in a quicker, cheaper,
and more thorough method of
clearing the area. Pushed by a tug,
a heavily-weighted dump barge is
now being used to pull an old
dredge spud (a 70-foot, 35-ton bar
of metal) through the water at a
depth of 45 feet. The bar knocks
over or breaks off nearly every-
thing in its path. Surveyors have
found that far fewer obstacles are
left behind when this method is
used.
It is believed that a similar
dragging method was used years
ago to clear some of the so-called


"Banana Channels," which run
between some of the small islands
at the north end of Gatuh Lake.
By systematically combing the
'Ga'tun:La'keaAnehoriage e-xpansion
area, the spud was able to perform
the initial clearing in four days-
about one-tenth the time it would
have taken to clear half the area
using divers.
In addition to the significant
time savings, the cost of the project
has also been reduced. Harold
"Bud" Green, the Engineering and
Construction Bureau engineer in
charge of the project, explained
that before the dragging method
was implemented, the divers cov-
ered slightly less than half of the
expansion area in the space of five
weeks, at a cost of about $100,000.
By dragging the spud and taking
only four days to clear the entire
area, the cost is only about
$12,000.
Since this method is proving to
be so much quicker and less costly,
more areas can be cleared at less
expense. When Phase Two of the
project is completed, the dragging
crew will move on to the West
Gatun Anchorage area. Also known
as the Gatun Explosive Anchor-
age, this area is used to keep ships
carrying hazardous cargo at a
distance from other vessels and

A Canal People




Admeasurer measures up


by Katie Wingenbach

For Atlantic-sider Dick Bjor-
neby, the Panama Canal is not
only a source of income, it is also
the basis of his hobbies and many
of his activities within the com-
munity. A long-time Canal area
resident, Mr. Bjorneby has an
especially strong "Canal con-
nection," an interest in the Canal
and its people that extends well
beyond the limits of his job
description.
R. J. "Dick" Bjorneby, now the
Cristobal Supervisory Admeasurer,
came to Panama from Bremerton,
Wash., in 1961 as a rigger. As a
divorced man with three children,
he felt that Panama would be a
good place for the kids and was
encouraged by friends who had
relocated to this area.
After working for a year as a
rigger with Industrial Division, he
became a diver and worked as a
rigger-diver for 4 years, joining the
admeasurers in 1966. In his first 4
years there as a junior admeasurer,
he boarded about 1,600 ships per
year. Mr. Bjorneby calculates that
he has boarded roughly 8,000 ships
over the years. "People are the
most interesting aspect of thisjob,"
says Mr. Bjorneby.
His interest in people is, how-
ever, not limited only to his work.
He is intensely interested in the
people of the Canal area com-
munities as well. He has shown this
interest throughout his 21 years on
the Atlantic side by serving on the
Coco Solo Civic Council, the


Governor's Advisory Committee
for Education, and the Cristobal
High School Advisory Committee.
Mr. Bjorneby is a strong and active
supporter of the Residents' Ad-
visory Committees (RACs) and
claims that they don't get enough
credit for all the good things they
do. He says that people who are
always complaining about the
RACs and various other com-
mittees, fail to realize that these
groups have been instrumental in
making the Canal area such a great
place to live.
Family is also a big part of Mr.
Bjorneby's life. In 1964 he married
Pat Leach, a Colon-born daughter
of a longstanding local family. As a
note of interest, the wedding took
place in Panama City, Fla. He
describes their family as "yours,
mine, and theirs,"-his three chil-
dren, her one, and two they later
adopted. Marc, 14, and Kristi, 13,
are still at home, but the others are
spread out around the States-one
living in New York, two in Seattle,
and one in Spokane. He says that
many friends and nearly all his
relatives, including great aunts,
cousins, and so on, have been
down here to visit. The Bjornebys
not only enjoy the company,
entertaining visitors gives them the
opportunity to learn even more
about local attractions like Porto-
belo and Fort San Lorenzo.
In addition to his community
and family activities, Mr. Bjorneby
has been involved with Little
League or Farm League baseball
every vear but one since 1964. In


Photo by Rodolfo Martinez
Dick Bjorneby, seen above sitting in his office, doesn't sit stillfor long. As
Cristobal Supervisory Admeasurer, he has taken thousands of trips into
the harbor, where he boards and measures ships preparing to transit the
Canal. Mr. Bjorneby's "Canal connection" is centered around, but is
certainly not limited to, his job, and with all his activities combined, he is
definitely a man on the move.


recent years he has chosen to serve
as an umpire rather than as a team
coach or manager. "There's nothing
I've ever liked better," he reports.
Mr. Bjorneby is an avid sports
fan. He follows all sports, "though
I never played any of them very
well," he says. In anticipation of an
October vacation, he is currently
studying the game schedules for
American football, hockey, base-
ball, basketball, soccer, Canadian
football, tennis, and motorcycle
racing in order to plan his itinerary
to take in as many sports events as
possible.
Such a seeminglv-exhausting


vacation is not new to Mr.
Bjorneby. In 1974, during a one-
month vacation, he flew a total of
16,000 miles and saw 10 pro
football games, one college foot-
ball game, watched Lou Brock
steal base No. 104 during his
record-breaking year and still
managed to see all his relatives
("including my mother-in-law," he
chuckles) in Florida, New York,
and Washington state. On that
same trip he managed to work in a
visit to the Beer Can Collectors'
Convention in Denver and was
able to see the largest motorcycle
race on the West Coast. At one


point during that one-month vaca-
tion, he passed through St. Louis
airport five times in fiv; days.
Mr. Bjorneby doesn't limit his
travel to attending sport events; he
has travelled extensively in 35
states and 8 foreign countries. For
three vacations in a row, he put
over 16,000 miles on his vehicle
each trip. Twice, he and his family
drove the Pan-American Highway
to the States and then to each of
the four corners of the continental
United States, visiting relatives
and seeing the sights. One year
those 16,000 miles were driven
entirely within the States.
Mr. Bjorneby is also a collector
of postcards, Canal Zone mem-
orabilia, and books about Panama
and the Canal, as well as beer cans.
His beer can collection boasts
3,500 different cans. His postcard
collection covers two categories:
about 250 postcard pictures taken
here during the construction days
and around 2,500 postcards of
ships, about a thousand of which
are signed by their captain. He also
has about 400 volumes in his
collection of books and other
publications dealing with Panama,
the Canal and the 1977 Panama
Canal Treaty.
When they leave Panama, The
Bjornebys plan to return to the
Pacific Northwest, where Mr.
Bjorneby plans to work in ship
surveying. But for now, "I just plan
from year to year," he says.
Although his plans for the future
are not definite, the future will
surely be related in some way to the
Canal. As he explains, "Everyone
here has a 'Canal connection.' You
just can't divorce yourself from the
waterway."

Mercedes Carmen Arias, a sophomore majoring in journalism at Mount Holyoke College,
South Hadley, Mass., found work in her field at the Office of Public Affairs. Look for a story
by Ms. Arias in a forthcoming issue.of the SPILLWAY.


John Catanzaro, who will be a student of marine engineering at Calhoun Marine
Engineering School in Batimore, Md., works with a blueprint machine in the Engineering
Division.


Students get work experience at PCC


At the beginning of each summer,
hundreds of job applications pour
into employment offices every-
where, and the Panama Canal
Commission Office of Personnel
Administration is no exception.
Over 550 high school and college
students applied for positions in
the Commission's student assistant
program this year and, on June 14,
320 students began to work. The
students were scattered through-
out the Commission in almost
every division, with the En-
gineering and Construction Bu-
reau employing the most.
The nature of the jobs ranged
from clerical/administrative, re-
quiring shorthand and typing
skills; to technical which required
more specific skills, including
engineering and computer know-
how; to manual, where few specific
%kills were needed.
The Canal organization has
been hiring student assistants for
years. It all began in June 1913
when Col. H.F. Hodges, acting
Chairman of the Isthmian Canal
Company, proposed the hiring of
"boys of suitable age and qualifica-
tions to be employed as mes-

















i/


sengers." The program continued
on into the 1930's when the
Depression severely curtailed the
program and employment pre-
ference was given to adults who
had been laid off. After a few years,
the student program picked up
again and has continued until the
present day.
The selection process begins
when the Office of Personnel
Administration replaces the ap-
plicant's name with an identifying
number on each job application.
The anonymous applicants are
then screened and referred to
various Commission units on the
basis of individual skills, level of
education attained, subjects stu-
died in the classroom, previous job
experience, and expressed oc-
cupational preference. From this,
each unit chooses those individuals
who best suit its needs.
In this program, the students are
given a chance to experience
traditional working conditions and
discipline in the completion of
required duties. Not all students
are able to obtain jobs related to
career plans, either because of a
lack of experience, an abundance


of qualified applicants, or a lack of
positions available in their area of
interest. Others do get jobs that
may play an important role in their
future. In that case, the student
assistant program is a way to get a
head start in a world where "only
the experienced need apply."
The students were employed
through August 21 when the
program ended. They are now
returning to school, richer both in
pocket and in experience.

Reach Anchorage is established,
separate anchorages will be avail-
able for northbound and south-
bound ships. This will enhance
transit safety by eliminating the
need for anchoring ships to cross
the path of Canal traffic.

Comandante de la Brigada 193

felicita a la Comisi6n del Canal

El Comandante de la Brigada 193 de Infanteria (Panama), General de
Brigada Fred F. Woerner, ha dirigido al Administrador de la Comisi6n
del Canal de Panama, D. P. McAuliffe, una expraesiva nota de
felicitaci6n con motive del sexag6simo octavo aniversario del Canal de
Panama, en la que hace el debido reconocimiento del aporte que hacen
todos los empleados que estan vinculados a la gran obra del Canal.
La nota congratulatoria del General de Brigada Woerner dice asi:





Headquarters
193d Infantry Brigade (Panama)
Fort Clayton, Panama


"Los oficiales y soldados de la Brigada 193 de Infanteria
(Panama) extienden sus felicitaciones y mejores deseos a
usted y a los miembros de la Comisi6n del Canal de Panama
en este 68 aniversario de la inauguraci6n del Canal de
Panama.
"Por raz6n de su ilustre historic, el Canal de Panama

de que los logros futures correran parejos con los de su
magnifico pasado.

con usted nuestro compromise de mantener la seguridad de
esta vital via fluvial."

Commanding


Agrimensura, la Divisi6n de Dra-
gas y la Divisi6n Industrial.
Con la terminaci6n del pro-
yecto se incrementarA en un 50 por
ciento el tamafio del Anclaje de
Gat6n. La creaci6n de un anclaje
de este tipo contempla la remoci6n
de obstaculos hasta una profundi-
dad de 45 pies. Hasta hace poco,
esto se hacia utilizando a los buzos
de la Divisi6n Industrial para
colocar dinamita en los arboles.
Despu6s que se dinamitaba estos
obstAculos, el Ramo de Agrimen-
sura localizaba a los obstaculos
que no habian sido removidos, y
los buzos tenian que prepararse
para un nuevo dinamiteo.
Ultimamente, un nuevo viraje de
una vieja tactica ha resultado ser
mis rapido,. econ6mico y mis
complete en la remoci6n de
obstaculos, Empujado por un
remolcador, una pesada barcaza
de desperdicios esta siendo usada
para arrastrar un puntal de dra-
gado (una barra de metal de 35
toneladas y 70 pies de largo) a
trav6s del agua a una profundidad
de 45 pies. La barra arrastra o
rompe casi todo lo que encuentra
en el camino. Los agrimensores
han establecido que quedan
menos obstaculos cuando se utiliza
este m6todo.
Se cree que un metodo similar
fue utilizado hace algunos afios
para abrir los "canales de banano"
que hay entire algunos de los islotes
al norte del Lago Gat6n.


"Peinando" sistemiticamente el
area de expansion del Anclaje, el
puntal pudo realizar la remoci6n
inicial en 4 dias-aproximada-
mente la d6cima parte del tiempo
que hubiese tomado limpiar la
mitad del area utilizando a los
buzos.
Ademas de la apreciable canti-
dad de tiempo que se ahorra,el
costo del proyecto tambi6n ha sido
reducido. Harold "Bud" Green, el
ingeniero de la oficina de Ingeneria
y Construci6n encargado del pro-
yecto, explic6 que antes de que se
empleara este nuevo m6todo los
buzos cubrian un poco menos de la
mitad del area de expansion en 5
semanas, a un costo de $100,000.
Por medio del dragado con el
puntal, se toma 6nicamente 4 dias
para limpiar toda el area, y el costo
es de apenas unos $12,000.
Ya que este m6todo esta resul-
tando ser mas rapido y menos
costoso, mis areas pueden ser
limpiadas a menos costo. Cuando
haya sido terminada la Fase Dos
del proyecto, la cuadrilla de
dragado se trasladara al area
occidental del Anclaje de Gat6n.
Conocido tambi6n como el An-
claje de Explosivos de Gat6n, se
utiliza este sector para mantener a
los barcos que llevan carga peli-
grosa lejos de otros barcos y de los
poblados, pero actualmente s6lo
esti sirviendo a un barco cada vez.
Despu6s que se haya limpiado el

Empleados del Canal


Un arqueador que va y viene


Por Katie Wingenbach

Para Dick Bjorneby, un resi-
dente del sector Atlantico, el Canal
de Panama no es solamente una
fuente de ingresos. Tambi6n es la
base para sus pasatiempos y
muchas de sus actividades en la
comunidad. El Sr. Bjorneby, qui6n
ha vivido en el area por muchos
afios, tiene fuertes "conexiones
canaleras", un interns en el Canal y
su gente que va mas alli de los
limits de la descripci6n de su
trabajo.
R. J. "Dick" Bjorneby, actual-
mente desempefia las funciones de
Arqueador Supervisor en Crist6-
bal. Vino a Panama de Bremerton,
Washington, en 1961 como apa-
rejador. Siendo un hombre divor-
ciado con tres hijos, pens6 que
Panama seria un lugar ideal para
los nifios y tambi6n fue alentado
por amigos que se habian venido a
Panama.
Despu6s de trabajar por un aiio
como apareador, se convirti6 en
buzo y trabaj6 como apareador-
buzo por 4 afios, pasando luego a
los arqueadores en 1966. Durante
los 4 afios siguientes, trabaj6 como
arqueador asistente y abord6 1,600
barcos por afio. El Sr. Bjorneby
calcula que ha abordado unos
8,000 barcos en los tltimos afios.
"La gente son el aspect mas
interesante del trabajo", dijo.
Su interns en el ser human, sin
embargo, no esta limitado a su
trabajo. Tambi6n estA vivamente
interesado en la gente de las
comunidades del area del Canal.
Durante sus 21 afios en el sector


AtlAntico, ha demostrado ese
interns prestando servicios en el
Consejo Civico de Coco Solo, el
Comit6 de Asesoria para la Educa-
ci6n del Gobernador y el Comit6
de Asesoria de la Escuela Superior
de Crist6bal. Tambi6n es miembro
de los Comit6s de Asesoria de
Residents y sostiene que no estan
recibiendo el cr6dito que ameritan
por todas las cosas buenas que han
realizado. Dice que las personas
que se quejan de dichos comit6s no
se han dado cuenta que esos
grupos son los que han contri-
buido a que el area del Canal sea
un lugar tan agradable.
La familiar tambi6n es parte
important de la vida del Sr.
Bjorneby. En 1946, contrajo matri-
monio con Pat Leach, nacida en
Col6n, e hija de una conocida
familiar del sector. Describe su
familiar como "suyos, mios y de
aquellos"-los tres de 61, uno de
ella, y dos mAs que adoptaron,
Marc, de 14 aiios, y Kristi, de 13,
todavia viven con sus padres, pero
los otros estan regados por Esta-
dos Unidos-uno en Nueva York,
dos en Seattle, y uno en Spokane.
Dijo que muchos de sus amigos y
casi todos sus familiares, inclu-
yendo tias, primos, etc., han estado
en Panama de visit. La pareja
Bjorneby no s6lo disfruta de las
visits; atenderlas les da la oportu-
nidad de aprender mas sobre las
atracciones locales, como Porto-
belo y el Fuerte San Lorenzo.
Ademas de sus actividades
comunitarias y familiares, El Sr.
Bjorneby ha participado en las
Ligas Juveniles de Beisbol cada
aflo desde 1964. Recientemente ha
optado por servir de arbitro en

Dick Bjorneby, quien aqui aparece sentado en su oficina, no es de los que
permanecen en esa posici6n por much tiempo. Como supervisor de
arqueadores en Crist6bal, ha realizado miles de viajes a la bahia para
abordar y arquear naves que se preparan para transitar el Canal. La
"conexi6n canalera" del Sr. Bjorneby gira en torno a, pero no limitado a,
su trabajo, y con la combinaci6n de todas sus actividades, es
definitivamente un hombre que estd en constant movimiento.


lugar de ser entrenador o director.
Es un inveterado aficionado del
deported. Sigue el desarrollo de
todos los deportes, "aunque nunca
fui bueno en ninguno de ellos",
agreg6. Con miras a sus vacaciones
en octubre, actualmente se encuen-
tra estudiando los calendarios de
los juegos de fftbol americano,
hockey, beisbol, balompi6, futbol
canadiense, tenis y las carreras de
motocicletas para planear sus
itinerario de manera que puedever
la mayor cantidad de events
possible.


Aunque semejante itineriario es
aparentemente agotador, eso no es
nada nuevo para el Sr. Bjorneby.
En 1974, durante unas vacaciones
de un mes, vo16 16,000 millas y
presenci6 10 juegos del ffitbol
professional, uno colegial, estuvo
present para el robo de base NQ
104 de Lou Brock, ytodavia tuvo
tiempo para ver a sus familiares
("incluyendo a mi suegra", dijo
sonriendo) en Nueva York, Flo-
rida y el Estado de Washington. En
ese mismo viaje pudo asistir a la
Convenci6n de Coleccionistas de


Latas de Cerveza en Denver y
presenciar la carrera de motoci-
cletas mas grande de la Costa
Occidental. Tiene 3,500 latas de
distintas marcas en su colecci6n.
Durante esas vacaciones de I mes
pas6 por el aeropuerto de San Luis
cinco veces en 5 dias.
El Sr. Bjorneby no limita sus
viajes a la asistencia a events
deportivos, ha viajado extensa-
mente por 35 Estados y ocho
paises. Durante tres vacaciones
consecutivas, viaj6 16,000 millas
cada vez en su vehiculo. En dos
ocasiones, 61 y su familiar viajaron
por la Carretera Interamericana a
los Estados Unidos y de alli a las
cuatro esquinas del pais, visitando
familiares y admirando el paisaje.
El Sr. Bjorneby tambi6n es
coleccionista de tarjetas postales,
memorabilia de la Zona del Canal
y libros sobre Panama y el Canal,
asi como de latas de cerveza. Su
colecci6n de tarjetas postales es de
dos categories: unos 250 de
retratos de tarjetas tomados du-
rante la 6poca de la construcci6n y
unos 2,500 de barcos, unos 1,000
de los cuales estan firmados por
sus capitanes. Tambi6n posee
aproximadamente 40 volfmenes
en su colecci6n de libros y otras
publicaciones relacionadas a Pa-
nama, el Canal y el Tratado de
1977.
Cuando abandon a Panama, la
pareja piensa retornar al Pacifico
noroeste, donde el Sr. Bjorneby
tiene intenciones de trabajar en la
agrimensura de barcos. Pero por
ahora, "solo planeo para un afio
cada vez". Aunque sus planes para
el future no son definidos, de
alguna manera el future estara
relacionado al Canal. Come 6l lo
explica, "todo el mundo aqui tiene
una conexi6n canalera; uno no
puede divorciarse de la via acua-
tica".

SPILLWAY DEL CANAL DE PANAMA


Mercedes Carmen Arias, estudiante de segundo ano de periodismo en el Colegio Mount
Holyoke, de South Hadley, Massachusetts, encontr6 lo que le gusta en la Oficina de
Informaci6n y de Relaciones Pdblicas. Un articulo escrito por la Srta. Arias aparecerd en
una pr6xima edici6n del SPILLWAY.


Estudiantes se abren paso trabajando


Al comienzo de las vacaciones
escolares, cientos de aplicaciones
de.trabajo inundan las oficinas de
empleos en todas parties, y la
Oficina de Administraci6n de
Personal de la Comisi6n del Canal
de Panama no es ninguna excep-
ci6n. Mas de 550 estudiantes de
nivel secundario y universitario
aplicaron por posiciones en el
program de estudiantes asistentes
de la Comisi6n de este afio y, a
partir del 14 dejunio, 320 de ellos
comenzaron a trabajar. Dichos
estudiantes fueron repartidos a
trav6s de casi todas las divisions
de la Comisi6n, recibiendo la
Oficina de Ingenieria y Construc-
ci6n la mayor cantidad.
La naturaleza de sus tareas
oscilaron desde oficinista/admi-
nistrativo, que demand destrezas
de estenografia y mecanografia, a
t6cnica, que require destrezas mas
especificas, incluidas el conoci-
miento de ingenieria y computa-
doras; a maunal, done son pocas
las destrezas especificas reque-
ridas.
La organizaci6n del Canal ha
estado empleando estudiantes asis-
tentes por mas de 60 afios. Todo
comenz6 en junio de 1913, cuando
el Coronel H. F. Hodges, presiden-
te encargado de la Comisi6n


Istmica del Canal, propuso se
empleara a "muchachos de edad y
cualidadaes adecuadas como men-
sajeros". El program contilu6
hasta la d6cada del '30, cuando la
Depresi6n limit severamente el
program, y la preferencia en el
empleo se transfiri6 a los adults
que habian perdido sus trabajos.
Despu6s de algunos afios, pudo
reanudarse el program para estu-
diantes, y ha continuado hasta el
present.
El process de selecci6n comien-
za cuando la Oficina de Adminis-
traci6n de Personal reemplaza el
nombre del aplicante con un
n6mero de identificaci6n en cada
una de las solicitudes. Los solici-
tantes an6nimos luego son referi-
dos a las diversas unidades de la
Comisi6n en base a sus destrezas
individuals, el grado de educaci6n
cursado, las materials estudiadas en
el aula, experiencia de trabajo
previo, y preferencia ocupacional
expresa. De aqui, cada unidad
selecciona a aquellos que mejor
Ilena sus necesidades.
En este program, se le brinda al
estudiante la oportunidad de expe-
rimentar las tradicionales condi-
ciones de trabajo y discipline en la
realizaci6n de las tareas asignadas.
No todos los estudiantes estAn en


capacidad de obtener empleos
acordes con los planes que han
trazado para sus carreras, ya sea
por la falta de experiencia, una
abundancia de solicitantes califi-
cados, o una falta de posiciones
vacantes en su area de interns.
Otros si logran colocaci6n que
pueden jugar un important papel
en su future. En este caso, el
program de estudiante asistente
es una manera de dar el paso inicial
en un mundo en que "tnicamente
el experiinentado puede aplicar".
Los estudiantes estuvieron em-
pleados hasta el 21 de agosto, que
fue cuando finaliz6 el program.
Ahora retornan a sus colegios, mis
ricos de bolsillo y de experiencias.

La mecanografia es una destreza til para
copiar trabajos de graduaci6n y para conseguir
trabajo durante las vacaciones. Ernesto Guil-

Universitaria Comunitaria de Prince George en
Largo, Maryland, demuestra su habilidad en la
Division de Sistemas de Procesamiento de

Bruce Sanders, el Oficial Mayor
de Operaciones de TrAnsito, ex-

anclaje expandido. "El beneficio
mis important sera una mayor
flexibilidad en la programaci6n de

Cuando establezcan el Anclaje de

barcos que se dirigen tanto al sur

la seguridad en los trAnsitos por
medio de la eliminaci6n de la
