The employee-management
cooperation program in U. S.
Government service "is off'to
a good start and shows pro-
mise of achieving the high
purposes for which it was con-
ceived," U. S. Civil Service
Commission Chairman John
W. Macy, Jr., reported to
President Kennedy recently.
'We find no reason to recom-
mend changes at this time,"
Chairman Macy added, in re-
ference to the program under
which the Panama Canal has
granted formal recognition to
36 employee organizations and
informal recognition to one.
The report and comments
by Chairman Macy marked the
first anniversary of Executive
Order 10988, which established
the emplo ye e-management
In accepting the report, the
President expressed his great
interest in the program. "Quite
obviously," he said, "the
character of the relationship
between the Federal Govern-
ment and its employees will
have great impact on the ef-
fectiveness of the operations
of the Executive Branch."
The report to .the President
was based on agency year-end
information, inspections at 169
headquarters and field estab-
lishments throughout the coun-
try which included conferences
with employee-organization of-
ficials, and data obtained on
a continuous basis in connec-
tion with the Civil Service

endeavour during my recent
visit to the United Kingdom,
I believe there is ample reason
to feel impressed and to again
repeat: there will always be
an England.

Price Changes

Being Made

In Zone Stores

The prices of many items
sold in Canal Zone retail stores
have been changed in recent
weeks as a result of the new
pricing policy aimed at offer-
ing items here at prices
similar to those at which the
same products are sold in New
Many of the price changes
resulting from. the new policy
have resulted in reductions,
and some items have been in-
creased in price. Among items
on which prices have been re-
duced .are baby foods, cake
mixes, fresh fruits, vegetables,
cereals, soups, pet foods, and
soaps and detergents.
But to make the pricing
policy consistent with prices
in New Orleans, a few increas-
es have been necessary. Re-
cently, the price of fresh milk
was increased to 27 cents a
quart in New Orleans and a
similar price will become ef-
fective in Canal Zone stores
on April 1. The present price
of milk in the Zone stores is
25 cents a quart.

A total of 13.552 private
motor vehicles were registered
in the CdnaJ Zone at the end
of 1962, according to the Canal
Z. ne License Section. Of the
total. 12,792 were cars. 432 were

Commission's aid to agencies
in program development and
staff training during 1962.
In his report, Chairmar
Macy said virtually all agen-
cies have met the program
with "affirmative acceptance."
He said they have cooperated
wholeheartedly in the program,
each implementing the pro-
gram with its own rules and
regulations patterned general-
ly after Civil Service Commis-
sion guidelines.
"A few have innovatioils
which seem qui~'e appropriate
to their special conditions," he
"Where delays have occur-
red," he reported, "they were
usually due to a commend-
able diligence in seeking full
consultation with employee or-
ganizations." The main prob-
lem in program development
occurred in the application of
the conflict of interest provi-
sions of the Order defining
which management and super-
visory personnel could not ap-
propriately hold office or act
as representatives of rank-
and-file organizations. For the
most part, such problems were
worked out cooperatively with
the organizations involved.
Chairman Macy note that
agencies have done an "out-
standing job in the initial
orientation and training of
management and supervisory
personnel to prepare them for
responsibilities arising under
the Order."
Although few new employee
organizations have appeared

as a result of the program,
fairly large-scale recruiting
activity has been launched by
several established groups. The
extent of membership gains
has not yet been assessed ex-
cept on a fragmentary basis.
Total membership, Govern-
ment-wide, however, remains
at about 33 per cent of Federal
employment, with significant
gains by some of the larger
"Agencies," Chairman Macy
said, "have granted formal re-
cognition to 360 employee-orga-
nization units so far." In 49
cases, recognition has been
granted on a national basis.
In developing appeal pro-
cedures and grievance sys-
tems, "consultation with em-
ployee organizations has prob-
ably been more extensive than
has ever occurred before in
the establishment of a major
personnel program in the Gov
eminment," he said.
"Valuable experience has
been gained this first year in
developing cooperative rela-
tionship," the Civil Service
Commission report said. "The
organizations have acquired
increased status as the repre-
sentatives of employees Em-
ployees are finding a greater
opportunity to participate in
the determination of conditions
affecting them on the job.
Agencies have reported that
the program is being imple-
mented without undue ad-
ministrative difficulty, and
they have made no recommen-
dations for change in the pro-
visions of the Order."

Approximately 25 native ca-

Zone Boy Scout cayuca race
to be held April 26, 27, and
28 from Cristobal to Balboa.
One of the highlights of the
dry season, the cayuca race
through the Canal arouses
keen competition among the
members of the Explorers
Scouts, who spend many weeks
preparing and practicing in
their native canoes.
With an average of four boys
to a boat, the fleet of small
craft will start the race from
Cristobal the morning of April
26 and will continue that day

to Gatun. The boats will not
transit these locks because of
the strong currents. The sec-
ond day, boys still in the race
will continue to Gamboa.
The final day of the race
April 28, will bring the boats
through Pedro Miguel and Mi-
raflores Locks to a point near
the Balboa Yacht Club. Con-
testing cayucas which fall too
far behind in the race at
various points will be elimin-
ated on time count.

The three-team softball league
was organized at the peniten-
tiary under the revitalized re-
creational progra'n for inmates.
Teams from the Canal Zone
community and military servi-
ce units played the inmate
teams on weekends, in addi-
tion to the league play.
This marked the first time in
several years that the Canal
Zone penitentiary has had a
softball team. Several years
ago, Santa Cruz had a 10-team
softball league which included
an inmate team, but when
Santa Cruz dropped its league,
the penitentiary was left with
players but no teams.
Next on the sports agenda at
the institution is track, follow-
ed by basketball.
The interest in softball and
other competitive sports has
picked up at the penitentiary
and the inmates look forward
to various games to test their
individual and team ability and
sportsmanship. A basketball
schedule is being prepared and
a table tennis tournament will
be started with exhibition
matches by a group of pros
soon to visit the Zone.
Track and field events are
planned in the future. Lack of
space caused postponement of
relay events and longer dash-
es, however Saturday, March
16, a 75 yd. dash was run and
the winner clocked at 8:02.
Only a nose separated the sec-
ond and third men who were
timed at 8:04.
In recent softball games the
results are as follows:
The trophy for the track
meet held Saturday, March 16,
was awarded to the winner of
the top time in the 75-yard
dash. The timed run was
made in 8.2 seconds. The 75-
yard dash had been timed at
8 seconds flat earlier in the
week by two other inmates,
but they failed to show better
than the winners 8.2 seeseu

Capt. Earl E. Mullins and Chief Engineer Walter
CAPT. EARL E. MULLINS of the Cascadas
joined the Dredging Division in 1952 and since
then has been with either the Cascadas or
the Paraiso.
He was born in North Carolina but grew
up in the Canal Zone, where his father,
George W. Mullins, was with the Canal Zone
Police Division after retiring from the U.S.
Army. His father was a detective at Balboa
Station and, at the time of retirement from
Panama Canal service, was an Wdentification
officer at Balboa Heights.
Captain Mullins, a graduate of Balboa
High School, met his wife at the high school.
She was born in Chile, and came to the Canal
Zone with her father, who was with All
American Cables. She, too, is a graduate of
Balboa High School.
He first went to work in the Panama
Canal Maintenance Division in 1939, under
an apprenticeship as operating engineer.
From 1940 to 1952 he worked as a heavy
equipment operator and then transferred to
the Dredging Division.
Mr. Mullins has two brothers George and
Curtis Leo, employed by the Panama Canal,
both in the Locks Division. Mr. and Mrs.
Mullins live in Gamboa and have seven chill-
dren, six boys and one girl, who range in age
from 3 to 18 years.

Grymala pose aboard the Cascadas.
LA of, the Cascadas got his first good look
at the Canal Zone in June 1942 when he was
with the Merchant Marine and his ship was
torpedoed and sunk 60 miles from Cristobal.
The rescued men were put up at Fort Gulick.
He was with the Merchant Marine from

1939 to 1950 and "saw the world," with stops
in Europe, Asia and Africa. He made several
Canal transits during that time, but didn't
really consider working on the Isthmus until
much later.

He was with the Trans-Arabian Pipeline,
working in Arabia, when he decided to lite-
rally and figuratively ,ook for greener fields.
Mr. Grymala also worked in California and
then the Pacific Proving Grounds before
coming to the Canal Zone and the Dredging
Division 5V2 years ago.

Mr. and Mrs. Grymala live in Gamboa
and have five children, the three oldest in
school. Home, in the United States, is Wis-

Spotted Jag, Potted Same

Meeting a jaguar in his na-

circumstances, even if you hap-

well, that's a cat with de-
cidedly unnerving spots.
Two surveying aids employ-
ed by the Panama Canal Sur-
veys Branch of the Engineer-
ing Division had such an ex-
perience recently, but came
out unscathed despite their
belief that the animal had
been stalking them.
Julio Lucero and Emeterio

about jaguars when they set

work gang toward the site
where they were clearing some
brush along the Canal Zone
boundary line.
Lucero had stopped at a
stream running through a
small ravine to get a cool drink
of water when his trained
woodsmen's eyes spotted some-
thing a bit unusual in the
tangle of jungle ahead.
Scarcely moving his head,
he peered a bit higher arid
caught a glimpse of a twitch-
ing tail. "A jaguar!" and only
a few feet away.
Lucero, who always carries a
shotgun in the bush, was start-
led but not too badly. Al-
most without thinking, he aim-

tectural alterations such as
the installation of doors, win-

companion in trouble, fired at
the same target. Taking no
chances, Lucero pumped two
more shots into the big body
of the jungle cat.
The other surveying aids in
the party, alerted by the shots,
hurried along the trail to find
their friends safe, though ex-

The animal measured eight
feet from nose to tail and
weighed about 150 pounds, re-
quiring the efforts of three
men to lug it back to camp.
Panama residents of the area
were delighted with the marks-
manship of the surveying aids:
Dogs and pigs in the area had
been serving as food for the
big cat, the residents said, be-
lieving such troubles now have
been ended.
The surveying aids team
brought the jaguar skin into
the Pedro Miguel Surveys
Branch office when they came
in from the camp for the week-
end and plans were being
made to have it tanned in Pa-
nama City.

Topografos Topan

Con Feroz Jaguar
Encontrarse con un jaguar por sus predios puede resultar
una memorable experiencia bajo cualquier circunstancia, ain
si uno es cazador. Pero encontrarse con uno cuando usted se
dirige a su trabajo....bueno, ese es un gato de otra pinta que le
quita el valor a cualquiera.
Dos ayudantes de topografia de la Secci6n de Topografia
de ta Divisi6n de Ingenieria del Canal de PanamA tuvieron tal
experiencia recientemente, pero salieron ilesos a pesar de su
sospecha de que el animal los habia estado acechando.
Julio Lucero y Emeterio Arias no estaban siquiera pensando
en jaguars cuando partieron de su campamento al oeste de
Pifia, tn el Area del AtlAntico, cerca de Gat(n. Ellos encabeza-
bau a la cuadrilla hacia el sitio donde estaban limpiando un
monte a lo largo de los limits de la Zona del Canal.
Lucero se habia detenido en una quebrada que corre a tra-
vys de una pequefia hondonada'para tomar agua cuando las du-
chaa pupilas de los lefiadores notaron algo fuera de lo com(m en
la marafia de la selva.
Moviendo apenas a cabeza, mir6 un poco mAs arriba y pudo
ver un rabo. "Un Jaguar!" y solamente a pocos pies de distan-
Lucero, que siempre Ileva consigo un revolver en el monte,
estaba asustado pero no much. Sin titubear, apunto y dis-
,ar6 hacia la cabeza del animal desde una listancia de unos 13
pies. El jaguar cay6. Arias, creyendo que su compafiero estaba
en peligro, disparo hacia el mismo blanco. Lucero hizo dos dis-
paros mis hacia el gran cuerpo del jaguar para asegurarse de
haberlo ultimado.-
Los otros ayudantes de topografia en el grupo, que habian
escuchado los disparos, corrieron por el sendero para encoantrar
a sus amigos a salvo, aunque excitados, y el jaguar ya bien
El animal media ocho pies desde la nariz hasta el rabo y
pesaba unas 150 libras, requiriendose los esfuerzos de tres hom-
bres para llevarlo de regresa al campamentto.
Los residents de PanamA en el Area celebraron much la
punteria de los ayudantes de topografia: los perros y los puercos
en el Area habian estado sirviendo de alimento al gigantesco
gato, segin dijeron los residents.
El equipo de ayudantes de topografia trajo la piel del ja-
guar a la oficina de la Secei6a de Topografia en Pedro Miguel
cuando arribaron procedentes del campamento durante el fin
de semana y se hacen planes para curtirta en la ciudad de Pc -

La Gran Bretafia es Grande

Al partir, de Inglaterra el
viajero no puede sino repetirse-
a si misma la promesa de Mc-
Arthur "Volveremos". Es tan-
to to que tiene que ofrecer esa
g&an naci6n al visitante que to-

se eseuchari un ruido coma de
entrechocar de espadas, de cru-

mes despubs de las epopeyicas
batallas ganadas par las ar-
mas inglesas en todos los rm-

Hay que revestirse de humil-
