The Federal Employees Salary
Act of 1966 signed by President
Johnson this week will mean a 2.9
percent across-the-board increase in
the base pay of all non-manual and
postal employees, both U.S. citizen
and non-U.S. citizen.
Executive schedule, pilots, Health
Service, and miscellaneous groups
whose salaries are administratively
based on the Non-Manual sched-
ule will also receive 2.9 percent
The pay increase will raise the
Panama Canal's payroll by some
$900,000 a year and affects more
than 4,300 employees.
The pay boost is retroactive to
July 3 and increases will be reflected
in the pay checks issued to employees
the week of August 8, with the
retroactive portion available shortly
U.S. citizens receiving the 15 per-
cent tropical differential will get 15
percent of their new base pay. Those
U.S.-citizen employees retaining a
fixed dollar tropical differential will
have the increase added to their
base rate.
The Act provides retirement on a
full annuity at age 55 after 30 years
service. Previously, there was a
reduction in annuity of 1 percent
per year for the years under age 60.
Retirement on a full annuity will
be permitted also at age 60 after 20
years service. Previously, employees
with less than 30 years service could
not retire until age 62. The retire-
ment portion of the bill is effective
July 18.
The bill sets NM-10 step 1 rate
as the limitation on payment of over-
time at true time and one-half.
Present limitation is NM-9, step 1.
The effective date of this overtime
provision is July 31.
Also as a result of the legislation,

ployees of the Canal organization.

tion on health insurance premiums

An entirely new pay provision is
also included in the new law. Many
employees whose regular work
schedules requires them to work on
Sunday will receive an additional
25 percent of their basic rate of pay
for that day.
In addition increased uniform
allowances and increased retirement
benefits to certain widows is also
included in the law.

Caution Urged

In Lakes Area
Gatun and Madden Lakes are now
at an elevation where spillway oper-
ations may become necessary at any
time, day or night.
During the next 6 months all per-
sons having occasion to be in the
area are warned to be on the lookout
for a sudden increase in the height
of water and force of current.
Warning sirens are sounded 15
minutes before .initial spilling begins
and spilling may be increased
thereafter without further warning.
Due to other noises, the sirens may
not be heard at long distances from
the spillways such as in the vicinity
of the Chagres River Bridge on
the Boyd-Roosevelt Highway below
Madden Dam. Special attention is
directed to parking automobiles,
trailers, boats, and fishing equipment
where a rise in the water level would
cause damage or a complete loss.
The amount of water released
varies with the situation but water
levels in the lagoon below Gatun
Spillway may increase as much as
14 to 20 feet and as much as 6 feet

health insurance premiums will be at the Chagres River Bridge below
lowered for the majority of em- Madden Spillway.

Altimon Barber Canal Zone Youths

Honored for 40 Scale Panama Peak

Years' Service
Altimon C. Barber, painter-paint
mixer in the Dredging Division Paint
Shop at Gamboa, was honored by
his fellow employees on his retire-
ment from Canal service after more
than 40 years' service.
In recognition of his efforts and
cooperation throughout his years of
duty, a ceremony in his honor was
held in the Dredging Division Paint
Shop. Acting Dredging Division
Chief Robert Lowry commended
Barber for his excellent work record.
General Foreman, Maintenance,
Charles W. Hammond, said Barber
would be difficult to replace and
Construction and Maintenance Su-
perintendent C. Russell Stevens, in
a brief talk, commended Barber on
his unmarred time record, for he
never was late in reporting for work.
Timekeeper Sidney A. Richards,
representing Barber's fellow em-
ployees, presented Barber an ini-
tialled gold buckle and a wallet with
a sum of money. "When a man has
done his best, even angels can do no
better," Richards said, speaking of
Barber's service. A bouquet of red
roses was also given the honor guest
for Mrs. Barber, in recognition of
her contribution to Barber's efforts.
In expressing his appreciation,
Barber reminded his fellow workers
that he will reside on the Isthmus, at
House No. 26, 19th Street, Rio Abajo.
In the field of sports, he will be
remembered as an excellent bridge
player and a good cricketer. He now
has retired from the latter game and
acts as cricket games' umpire.

started at dawn, carrying blankets,
water, food for the day and breakfast
for the next morning.
The ascent of the 11,382-ft. peak
was made in 5 hours, 15 minutes
which guide Luciano said was the
fastest trip he'd made. And he has
made nine ascents of El Barni.
The party encountered bitter cold,
just above freezing, with a con-
stantly-blowing wind. They managed
to make a fire and heated soup for
their evening meal.
The view was worth the trip, the
boys reported, for they said they
could see both oceans as well as
Puerto Armuelles and David.
The boys signed their names in
the register which is under a plastic
cover on the mountaintop. Here all
who make the ascent sign their
names and the Dillon-Markun party
was the first to sign for 1966.
David Markun and Patrick Dillon
found their names as the last climb-
ers of 1965, with this 1966 hike the
second ascent they have made.
The Dillon family has a home in
the Chiriqui region. The Markuns
are spending much of the summer
in that area.

Balboa Elementary

Playground News
Programs being held at the Balboa
Elementary Gym have been quite
active with such games as kickball,
basketball, newcomb, dodge-ball,
and survival bringing out approxi-
mately 300 children.
Elementary school children need a
great deal of activity. They also need
to learn many basic skills such as
running, jumping, throwing, catch-
ing, kicking, and dodging. These
games will fill these requirements.
A child must learn to share, and
work with others as a team. He needs
to learn self-control, to accept
defeats, to win graciously and, most
of all, a child wants fun.
Tiny tots have also had their
share in the fun, playing such games
as red rover, drop the handkerchief,
steal-the-bacon, sit-down, dodge-
ball, and races. But what they seem
to enjoy the most is tumbling.
The Husum family is well rep-
resented with six children, three
boys and two girls on the basketball
teams, and one in Tiny tots. There
are also three sets of twins, Jane and
Janis Kunkle, Albert and Donald
Saarinen, and Diane and Richard
Turner. Basketball is the favorite
game with the average of 60 children

Bernardo E. Howard, retiring quarantine clerk, is congratulated by Lt. Gov.
H. R. Parfitt who is presenting him with an outstanding performance award.

His Canal Quarantine

Work Spans 46 Years

Forty-six years of quarantine
work with the Panama Canal organi-
zation is the record achieved by
Bernardo E. Howard, veteran em-
ployee who retired at the end of
June as quarantine clerk in the
Admeasurer's Office in the Balboa
Port Captain's Building.
Howard, who came to work for
the Canal in 1920, served in the
unit which was known as the Balboa
Quarantine Station when he started
on his job.
From the beginning, Howard
was a jack-of-all-trades filling in
wherever he was needed at the busy
Quarantine Station which at that
time handled immigration cases as
well as health cases.
When he worked for the late
Dr. J. D. Odom, his duties included
interpreter, foreman, chauffeur, mes-
senger, and guard as well as fore-
man for the station. Working with
W. W. Priester, he was one of the
two licensed fumigators in the Canal
Zone and from time to time took
charge of the fumigation of a ship.
After the quarantine-boarding ac-
tivities were taken over by the
boarding officers-admeasurers in the
Navigation Division, Howard was
transferred to the Marine Bureau as
a quarantine clerk. In his job in the
Chief Admeasurer's Office, he was
responsible for the quarantine rec-
ords, the quarantine declarations of
each ship arriving at Balboa in addi-
tion to a number of statistical duties.

He did such an efficient job that
he was awarded a superior service
award in 1964 and an outstanding
performance award in March of this
Howard and his wife plan to make
their home in Panama although both
of them were born in Colombia.

Win Twice
In the first week of action in the
Elks Basketball League, a lot ol
basketball was played. In the league
opener big Rich Wainio, led the
Wildcats to a 66-23 rout of Toni
Pescod's Wolverines. Wainio poured
in 42 points, against the helpless op-
ponents. Wainio received help from
Louis Husted and Pablo Carrasquilla.
The Hawkeyes outlasted the Spar-
tans in the second game. The score
was 70-65 in a finely played game.
Big Fred Ostrea led the victors with
26 markers, followed by team cap-
tain Manuel Catzoela's 18 points. For
the Spartans it was "Bo" Smail with
27 points and an excellent job of
rebounding, George Husted and
"Buck" Slice contributed 16 and 12
points respectively.
The second night of action made
it two in a row for the Hawkeyes as
they tour the Wolverines 48-28. Fred
Ostrea led the victors with 19, for
the losing team it was Velez with
8 points.
In the night's second encounter
the fast moving Wildcats made it
number two by a 57-49 points vic-
tory over the Badgers. Rich Wainio
poured in 28 points, along with
Tom Duncan's 18. Neil "Judoka"
Doherty's 21 and Roy Wilson's 13
were high in their try for a win for
the Badgers.



Spirits ran high at the R. H. Adams residence where Jack Campbell's
triumph in the Transcontinental Golf Tournament was celebrated. Campbell
putted his way to victory in the tournament that consisted of 18 holes of
play at Amador, Summit, Brazos Brooks, and the Panama Golf Club. Other
entries were R. W. Wheeler, R. H. Adams, and J. L. H. Demers. Campbell's
low net score for the four games was a 308. Runners up were Wheeler
and Adams, tied with 312, and Demers, 313. Left to right are Wheeler,
Demers, Campbell, and Adams.

Roberto F. Durin es ayudante estu-
diantil, que durante sus vacaciones
en la Preparatoria de Universidad
Miami Dade, en La Florida, se en-
cuentra prestando servicios en la
Division de Ingenieria del Canal de
PanamA. La mayor part de su tiem-
po la dedica a trabajos de agrimen-
sura. Naci6 en PanamA el 15 de
febrero de 1946. Sus studios prima- &b
rios los hizo en la Escuela Primaria
de Anc6n y la secundaria en la Es-
cuela Secundaria de Balboa, ambas
en la Zona del Canal. Su padre es
Paul Durin, prominent industrial
de la ciudad de PanamA. Roberto
reside con sus padres en el sector
de Altos del Golf, en la ciudad de
PanamA. Al present, estudia inge-
nieria y sus deseos son especializarse
en construcci6n de edificios y carre-
teras. Dice que el edificio que ms
le llama la atenci6n en la ciudad de
PanamA, es El Faro, en la cumbre r
de La Cresta, debido a los muchos
cAlculos que se tuvo que hacer para .
proceder a levantarlo. Roberto es
fanitico del golf y es una de las pro- N ..
mesas j6venes de PanamA en ese
deported. Le gusta much practicar .
el deslizamiento sobre el agua en ---. ,.
acuaplanos. Dice que en Miami
es una locura la que existed por ese
deported y que qued6 sumamente sor-
prendido de lo adelantados que estin
los muchachos de Panama. "Pero",
terminal diciendo, "lo que mAs me
gusta son las muchachas de mi edad".


Lucia Di Blasi, es ayudante estudiantil y presta servicios en la Oficina de
Personal en Anc6n, Zona del Canal, en el Ramo Administrativo y de Archi-
vos de Personal, de la Direcci6n de Personal del Canal de Panama. Naci6
en la ciudad de Panama, el 16 de octubre de 1947. Vive con su familiar en
la secci6n de San Francisco de la Caleta, Avenida 3a, N9 63, de la ciudad
de PanamA. EstA muy content con su trabajo de vacaciones y dice que la
experiencia que estA ganando muy dificilmente la conseguiria en otra part.
Sus studios secundarios los hizo en la Escuela Secundaria de Balboa, Zona
del Canal en donde acaba de terminar sus studios. Alli fue una unidad
valiosa del Club de Espafiol y tambiin perteneci6 al Club de Secretarias.
Sus planes al present son seguir sus studios universitarios en la Univer-
sidad de Windsor, en Ontario, CanadA, donde estudiarA psicologia, rama
auxiliar de la psiquiatria, para una vez graduada, trabajar en alguna clinic
aqui en PanamA. La Srta. Di Blasi es cat6lica y dice que la iglesia de
PanamA que mAs devoci6n le inspira es el Santuario del Coraz6n de Maria.
Es una enamorada del interior de la Repiblica de PanamA. Conoce hasta
Pocri de Las Tablas. "Es un pueblecito encantador", dice, "tipicamente
panamefio y alli uno se siente en intimo contact con la naturaleza. Con
raz6n alli hay tantas personas de edad avanzada. La tranquilidad que existed
es deliciosa y seguramente es debido a ello que los pobladores viven tanto".
Desea enormemente conocer Boquete, lugar del que le han hablado much.
De los lugares del extranjero, el que mAs desea conocer es Roma. ciudad
natal de su papa. Uno de los recuerdos mas vividos de la Srta. Di Blasi, es
el tremendo susto que pas6 a bordo de un avi6n, en un viaje que hizo a
Barranquilla, Colombia. A los pocos moments de haber despegado del
Aeropuerto de Tocumen, se detuvo uno de los motors del aparato. Regre-
saron al aeropuerto, se arregl6o el dafio y, como no es cobarde, sigui6 su
viaje a bordo del mismo avi6n.

Julio 22, 1966


Despues de 46 Anios de Servicio

Se Jubilo Bernardo E. Howard

Cuarenta y seis afios de trabajo de
cuarentena con el Canal de Panamai
es la hoja de servicios que tiene Ber-
nardo E. Howard, veteran emplea-
do que se jubil6 al final de junior
como oficinista de cuarentena en la
Oficina del Arqueador, en el Edificio
del CapitAn del Puerto de Balboa.
Howard, que empez6 a trabajar
con el Canal en 1920, sirvi6 en sus
comienzos con la unidad conocida
como Estaci6n de Cuarentena de
Desde el principio, Howard era el
factotum que servia en los puestos
donde se le necesitaba en la Estaci6n
de Cuarentena que en aquel tiempo
manejaba asuntos de inmigraci6n
ademis de los de cuarentena.
Cuando trabajaba con el finado
Dr. J. D. Odom, sus deberes incluian

El 22 de julio de 1849, el New
York Herald describia el modernisi-
mo sistema de ventilaci6n o "acondi-
cionamiento" de aire del vapor
"Ohio". A todo lo largo de la nave
corria un conduct de aire, conec-
tado con los camarotes de abordo.
Cuando la nave estaba en movi-
miento, el aire de los camarotes se
renovaba y refrescaba

mensajero y guardia, asi como el de
encargado de la estaci6n. Cuando
traba;aba con W. E. Priester, era uno
de los dos fumigadores diplomados
de la Zona del Canal y de tiempo en
tiempo, fumigaba los barcos.
Despu6s que las funciones de
abordaje fueron asumidas por los
funcionarios de abordaje y arqueo
de la Divisi6n de Navegaci6n,
Howard fue trasladado a la Direc-
ci6n de Marina como oficinista de
cuarentena. En su trabajo en la Ofi-
cina del Arqueador, era responsible
por los archives de cuarentena, la
declaraci6n de cuarentena de las
naves, ademis de otros deberes de
Su trabajo fue tan eficiente que en
1964 se le dio el Premio por Servi-
cios Superiores y otro por Servicios
Sobresalientes en marzo de este afio.
Howard y su esposa piensan vivir
en PanamA, a pesar de que ambos
nacieron en la Isla de Vieja Provi-
dencia, Colombia. Una de sus dos
hijas estudia en los Estados Unidos
para conseguir su master en profe-
sorado; la otra es enfermera en el
Hospital Santo TomAs de PanamA,
y ademis tienen un hijo, que es

Jovenes Alpinistas Locales

Ascienden al Volcain El Bard

Dos de los mis j6venes alpinistas
que hayan subido al VolcAn El Baru,
el punto mas alto de la Repriblica de
PanamA, situado en Chiriqui, son dos
muchachos de la Zona del Canal,
ambos de 10 afios. Uno de ellos es
Paul Markun, hijo del Asesor Legal
del Canal de PanamA, David J.
Markun y Sra. Patricia Markun. El
otro es Kurt Dillon, hijo del Sr.
W. W. Dillon y Sra., de CGamboa.
Estuvieron acompafiados en su aven-
tura por sus respectivos hennanos,
Patrick Dillon, de 13 afios y David
Markun, Jr., de 12 y por dos guias
chiricanos, Jose y Luciano Samudio.
Los dos j6venes alpinistas comen-
zaron al amanecer, llevando fraza-
das, agua, comida para durante el
dia y desayuno para la siguiente
La ascension del pico de 11.382
pies se hizo en 5 horas, 15 minutes,
que el guia Luciano dijo que era
la ascension mis ripida que habia
hecho. Y 61 ha subido nueve veces
El Baru.
Se encontraron con un tremendo
frio, casi al punto de congelaci6n,
con viento constant. Pudieron en-

center fuego y tuvieron sopa caliente
para la cena.
El panorama que gozaron valia la
pena, dijeron los muchachos, ya que
podia ver ambos occanos, lo mismo
que Puerto Armuelles y David.
Los muchachos firmaron sus nom-
bres en el registro que esta bajo una
cubierta de plastico en la cumbre de
la montafia. Alli todos los que as-
cienden la montafia finnan sus nom-
bres y el grupo Dillon-Markun fue
el primero en firmar en 1966.
David Markun y Patrick Dillon
encontraron en el registro que habian
sido los 61timos en subir en 1965 y
con 6sta ya van dos veces que suben
al pico.
No tuvieron ninglin problema, a
pesar de que uno de los guias dijo
que habia escuchado un tigre du-
rante la noche y al dia siguiente
vieron las huellas alrededor de todo
el campamento. Pero no vieron al

Servicio de Adopcion en la Zona del

Canal Proporciona el Personal de S.

n oa d I ieri)a l l io de Personal

JUE OIU U a I1U J, lI Itl

La adopci6n no es una prActica
nueva en la Zona del Canal y ha ido
aumentando entire las parejas mili-
tares y civiles. Por lo general, el
pfiblico no esta bien informado sobre
la adopci6n y de la necesidad de ir
a una agencia social professional.
Solamente durante los Ailtimos 2
afios ha sido autorizado el Personal
de Servicio Social de la Direcci6n
de Personal para proporcionar ser-
vicio de adopci6n en la Zona del
Canal. Usualmente las parejas refe-
ridas a esta agencia son aquellas que
han hecho solicitud para la adopci6n
de un nihio en una agencia social en
los Estados Unidos o en Costa Rica,
las dos fuentes mis usuales para los
residents de la Zona del Canal.
La Child Welfare League of
America Standards estipula para los
servicios de adopci6n: "El prop6sito
fundamental para un servicio de
adopci6n seria ayudar a los nifios que
de otra manera no tendrian un hogar
propio y que pueden beneficiarse de
la vida familiar al convertirse en
miembros de una familiar que pueda
darles amor, cuidados, protecci6n y
oportunidades esenciales para su
saludable personalidad, crecimiento
y desarrollo".
Mientras las necesidades de los
aspirantes son importantes, mais im-
portante es la capacidad de la pareja
para sacrificarse y su buena voluntad
para dar amor y calor, estabilidad
emotional y fisica para el nifio
Los niflos disponibles para adop-
ci6n han pasado, por lo general, la
experiencia de haber perdido a sus
padres y la falta de lazos fami-
liares, la renuncia voluntaria por sus
padres o la terminaci6n de derechos
paternales por orden judicial y la de-
claraci6n de ser libres para adopci6n.
El conocimiento de todos los fac-
tores antecedentes es esencial para
comprender al nifio, sus padres na-
turales y la adaptabilidad de los aspi-
rantes adoptivos. Un studio social
de los aspirantes adoptivos es hecho
para incluir las razones de la pareja
para querer adoptar, duraci6n del
matrimonio, estado de salud fisica y
emotional, estabilidad econ6mica,
antecedentes raciales y nacionales y
afiliaci6n religiosa.
En el caso de conceder una adop-
ci6n, hay por lo general un period
de 6 meses a 1 ailo de supervision
antes de que la adopci6n sea final
para dar una oportunidad a evaluar
la aptitud de la concesi6n.
El trabajo de adopci6n es una
funci6n muy exigente e important
para un trabajador social profesio-

nal. El servicio require que el tra- o,
bajador social est6 involucrado di-
rectamente en el bienestar de un .
nifio que no puede ayudarse a si
mismo. Una vez que ha llegado la
decision para la concesi6n, se pro- .
porciona ayuda en la adaptaci6n de
la misma tanto para el nifio comoa04
para los padres adoptivos.
Los aspirantes adoptivos deben
ser ayudados a menudo en pregun-
tas tales como "dDe d6nde viene el A
nifio?" Las estadisticas de los sllti-
mos 5 afios indican que la mayoria
de los nifios disponibles nacieron de -
madres solteras que posteriormente
renunciaron al nifio para que fuese
Como los nifios nacidos de un ma-
trimonio, ellos necesitan una familiar
y una vida hogarefia conducente para ",!
el crecimiento y desarrollo adecua- .. '
dos y una que les proporcione amor
y comprensi6n. Existen muchos fac-
tores intrincados que deben ser -.. -
considerados por cualquier pareja .
interesada en adopci6n. Estos son .'
mejor manejados por personal es-..
pecialmente entrenado y con expe- .
riencia en el trabajo de adopci6n. .

Muchas parejas, en sus ansias por
adoptar, buscan la manera mis fici'l
o ripida possible. Estos atajos son
peligrosos y pueden Ilevar a tales
problems como pobre adaptaci6n
por el nifio o la pareja concesiona-
ria, batallas legales sobre derechos
paternales, interferencia por padres
naturales con posterioridad a la
adopci6n y muchos otros.
Los studios de concesiones de
adopci6n establecen abrumadora-
mente la estabilidad de adaptaci6n y
el 6xito de la concesi6n que ha sido
experimentado cuando las adopcio-
nes han sido manejadas por agencies
profesionales. En comparaci6n, las
adopciones manejadas por personas
incompetentes han resultado fre-
cuentemente en fracaso para los
nifios y adults envueltos. Estas ex-
periencias han probado ser emo-
cional y econ6micamente costosas.
No todas las adopciones maneja-
das por agencies profesionales son
siempre satisfactorias. Estas agen-
cias, sin embargo, tienen el mejor
record de 6xitos y estAn constante-
mente alertas y han dado motivo para
mejorar la prActica de adopci6n de
