Executive Secretary of the Canal
Zone-Paul M. Runnestrand-has re-
turned to the Isthmus after an official
visit to the 37th annual reunion of

This marked the first time that Canal
officials have attended the reunion.
Runnestrand addressed a group of
approximately 300 Canal retirees and
their wives giving an illustrated talk
on Canal operations and answering
questions of the former Canal em-
ployees. Burns provided and operated
the projection facilities for showing
more than 175 colored slides relating
to the Canal.
Collins, speaking at a luncheon,
told the group of his work in counsel-

Ship Draft


Is Reduced

The draft allowance of 40 feet,
which the Panama Canal has been
granting large vessels of certain types
using the Canal since November 12,
will be reduced to 39 feet 6 inches
effective February 3, according to a
notice issued by the Chief of the
Navigation Division.
The allowance is being reduced at
that time in view of the predicted
drop in Gatun Lake level due to dry
season conditions which can be ex-
pected to continue for the next 3
The level of Gatun Lake reached
86 feet 6 inches in the middle of
November 1968 and continued to rise
until it exceeded the 87-foot mark
where it has remained since Novem-
ber 28. Continued dry weather and
lack of rain in the watershed area
will gradually bring the level of the
lake down from now until the rains
begin in April or May.
In order to conserve water, the
Gatun Hydroelectric Station use was
curtailed early in December.

Personnel Policy Board

Marks 10th Anniversary

The Canal Zone Civilian Personnel
Policy Coordinating Board will com-
plete its 10th year of administering
the Canal Zone Merit System on
The lineage of the Merit System

the United States and the Republic

however, but because it endowed



The annual Boy Scout Olympics,
sponsored by the Knights of Colum-
bus Council No. 1371 of Balboa, will
be held tomorrow at two locations
on the Pacific side. Swimming will be
at the Albrook AFB pool and track
at the Balboa Stadium.
The Olympics is open to Boy
Scouts in the Council between 11
and 14 years of age. Scouts who plan
to participate in the track and field
events must be at the stadium by
8:45 a.m. The swimming meet will
be in the afternoon and the awards
ceremony is scheduled for approxi-
mately 4 p.m.
Special Olympic medals will be
awarded by the Knights of Columbus
to the first three place winners in
each event. The scout scoring the
highest on an individual basis will be
awarded a trophy and trophies also
will go to tlhe top three on a total
meet score.
Scouts are reminded to bring bag
lunches and to wear their uniforms.

employment in the Canal Zone with
certain qualities that are inherent in
the most advanced personnel pro-
Chief among these characteristics
is equality.
Both Panamanian and U.S.-citizen
employees are guaranteed equal
opportunity for appointment, for re-
assignment and for training and
advancement. Positions are evaluated,
titled, and graded irrespective of the
citizenship of the incumbent. In a
material sense, perhaps, the most
concrete expression of equality
appeared in the concept of basic
wage equity between nationalities.
Two employees with United States
and Panama citizenship, respectively,
working side by side on a locally
recruited job, are each assured the
same amount of basic pay.
Under regulations of the Secretary
of the Army acting for the President
of the United States, the Merit Sys-
tem brought order to the administra-
tion of civilian employees in the
Canal Zone. Prior to its implementa-
tion, there were vast differences
among agencies in the manner in
which employees were recruited,
appointed, promoted, compensated,
etc. The Merit System provides stand-
ards and procedures so that regula-
tions affecting personnel actions can
be applied uniformly throughout the
Canal Zone.
A third significant quality of the
Merit System is the emphasis placed
on competition as a prerequisite for
employment in the Canal Zone. Many
U.S.-citizen employees, by virtue of
conversion to the Canal Zone Merit
System received the status which

One of the serious problems facing
communities everywhere today is the
use of drugs, especially by teenagers
or young adults. Misuse of drugs can
affect every facet of an individual's
life-physical, psychological, social,
economical, and familial. It is fre-
quently accompanied by failure to
achieve up to one's potential. It is
for this reason that its consequences
are of such serious import to the
young adult.
The common factor in drug mis-
use is the attempt on the part either
of young adults or adolescents to
escape from either physical or emo-
tional problems. Most of the serious
drug abuse problems exist in the
heart'of major cities where there are
too many people, too little money,
and too little to do. But drug abusers
can be found anywhere from the
worst slums to the wealthy suburbs.
Among the drugs most easily avail-
able is the controversial one known
as marijuana. It is easily and fre-
quently grown in backyards or iso-
lated fields. The term marijuana is
used to refer to any part or extract
of the hemp plant. The resinous exu-
date of the top of the female plant
contains most of the active ingre-
dients. In the Middle East the resin
is called hashish. In the Far East it
is called charas.
Marijuana is a dangerous drug. The
smoking of a single marijuana ciga-
rette can precipitate psychiatric ab-
normalities, and heavy use can pro-
duce visual distortion and hallucina-
tions. Intellectual and sensory altera-
tion can lead to accidents and aggres-
sive antisocial acts.
Emotional balance can be and

frequently is disturbed so that alter-

anxiety occur. Its generalized phys-
iological effect can produce rapid
heart rate, change in blood pressure
and pupil size.
Fortunately, the use of marijuana
is not addictive in the sense that
withdrawal symptoms occur upon
discontinuance. Even more fortunate
is the fact that most users of mari-
juana in the United States are not
chronic users but use it instead for
an occasional spree. Even the occa-
sional user can get toxic effects de-
scribed above. Further, its use is
frequently followed by the trial of
other more potent drugs which can
lead to addiction and many other side

Ocu Fair

To Open


The well-known Ocu Fair, which
draws thousands of visitors each year
to the charming town located in He-
rrera Province, opens tomorrow and
continues until Monday, January 20.
As in previous years, the Panama
Canal, U.S. Southern Command, and
the U.S. Information Service will par-
ticipate in this fair, a regional folk-
loric, commercial, and agricultural
exposition. These organizations will
provide various displays and exhibits,
clowns, skydivers, and kiddie rides
for the children on the Summit Gar-
dens "burritos" Mancha and Cato.
An added attraction this year will
be judo and Karate exhibitions by
a mother and daughter team. This
will mark the first time that many
persons in the Interior witness such
an event.
The Panama Canal exhibit covers
Canal operations and points of inter-
est in the Canal Zone while U.S.
Army, Navy, and Air Force com-
ponents of the U.S. Southern Com-
mand will have the skydiving, band
concerts, and other events.
Free movies will be shown each
evening by USIS.
Of special interest to camera en-
thusiasts is the tamarind tree in the
Plaza de San Sebastian, in the center
of town. According to the Ocuefios,
this tree is the descendant of another
tamarind of years ago whose cool
shade was the scene of duels which
culminated the fiestas of that era.

Have you ever wondered what
really happened to the Mary Celeste,
found floating derelict, hatches open,
cargo intact, crew vanished? A good,
plausible answer is given in Footsteps
on Old Floors by Thomas H. Raddall.
This group of true tales of mystery
by the noted Canadian author all
have the common background of
Nova Scotia where he lives, and all
are unbelievable except that they
happen to be true. Nova Scotians,
take note.
Sandra Dallas, a resident of
Denver, has written a delightful book
about Colorado hotels built in the
1880's and 1890's, many of which
flourished and then faded away, and
some, such as Denver's Brown Palace,
that are still going strong. The atmo-
sphere of Victorian grandeur is caught
in the descriptions and the many
illustrations. The freewheeling life is
revealed in the rules of one hotel,
"No horses above the first floor" and
(the title of the book) No More Than
Five in a Bed.
Making Good Again by Lionel
Davidson gives a good picture of
present-day Germany. The novel's
plot concerns three lawyers who meet
in Munich to settle the estate of
Helmut Bamberger who died in a
Nazi concentration camp. The ques-
tion is, is Bamberger really dead?
This is a complicated and involving

Once upon a time, there was a
fellow named Bill Dodd who had a
small problem in his office. The prob-
lem was one Owl which had decided
that it liked Bill's office so much, that
at night it would enter the building
and roost among the rafters. Bill's
main objection, however, was not
about the owl-which was really a
very friendly owl-but rather, about
the owl's habits. All his efforts to
make the owl go away and find some
other roost, such as at the Industrial
Division or Maintenance, were in
vain. So, finally, in desperation, Bill
adopted the owl. And that's why even

Two newcomers to the Ancon Play-
house stage, and a thespian who
appeared for the first time on the
local stage in "Anniversary Waltz,"
will star in the Theatre Guild's pro-
duction of "Brigadoon," a colorful
tuneful musical.
New to Playhouse audiences are
Mickey Morgan of the U.S. Air Force,
who is cast as Tommy, the male lead,
and Mrs. Karen Brownfield, the
female star who, offstage, is the wife
of a doctor at Gorgas Hospital. Arthur
Pollack of the Panama Canal's
Graphic Branch, who first appeared
at the Playhouse in "Anniversary
Waltz," will be seen as Jeff, the
second male lead.
Cay Patterson, whose husband also
is a doctor at Gorgas Hospital, will
be seen in the role of Meg Brockie.
Sharon Pugh, wife of an Air Force
sergeant, will appear as Jean and
Richard Gaydos of Panama City will
play Charlie Cameron, Jean's fiance.
Marilyn Whaley, teacher of physical
education in the Panama Canal sec-
ondary schools, is cast as Maggie.
William Kilgallen, who has starred
in many Theatre Guild productions
and who is retiring from Canal serv-
ice next month, will be featured as
Mr. Murdoch, a schoolmaster.
Charles Hummer will be seen in
the role of Angus MacMonies; Bob
Chudd as Donald Ritchie; Edward
Conn as Sandy; Federico Cabrera as
MacGregor; Steve Potter as Stuart
Cameron; John Carlson as Harry Rit-
chie; Victor Canel as Andrew Mac-
Keith; Jerry Sait as Frank and Norene
Hughes as Jane Ashton.
The only children in the cast are
Carlitos Hummer and Debora Nis-
Members of the chorus and dancers
are: Kathy Melanson, Peggy Haney,
Kristie Ackerman, Glenda Stronach,
Anita Cole, Kathy Kiley, Catherine
Galuska, Lorraine Husum, Jay Zeock,
Rudy Crespo, Edward Hatchett,
Edward Reynolds, Robert Drost,
Robert Womack, Lupe Gaydos,
Ruben Blades, and Jay Stephens.
The cast is filled, rehearsals are
underway, but a bagpipe player still
is needed for "Brigadoon." A piper
who would like to play for the pro-
duction is asked to contact the di-
rector, Bruce Quinn, at the Ancon
Playhouse during rehearsals Monday
through Friday.
Production dates are set for Feb-
ruary 20 through March 8 excluding
Monday, February 24, and March 3.

If you don't know what the answer
is, be brief.



Capt. James C. Todd, left, and Capt. George A. McDonald, right, who
recently completed their training as pilots, have joined the Panama Canal
pilot force. Captain Todd, a native of Virginia, is a graduate of the New
York State Maritime College at Fort Schuyler and served 3 years in the
U.S. Navy. Before coming to the Canal Zone, he was an officer aboard ships
of the Victory Carriers Inc. of New York. Captain McDonald was born in
Boston, served with the U.S. Marines in Korea and attended the University
of Hawaii. He was with the Military Sea Transportation Service until he
joined the Canal organization as a pilot-in-training.

would also permit them to obtain
Federal employment in the United
States. All "status" employees,
regardless of citizenship, are now also
eligible for interagency transfers
within the Canal Zone.
The authority for interchange of
U.S.-citizen employees is predicated
on the condition that the Canal Zone
Merit System shall parallel the U.S.
Civil Service System in selection and
employment. Forging such a prodigi-
ous program was a significant accom-
plishment in the late 1950's. After
drafting the regulatory foundation for
the Merit System and Wage Program,
there remained the task of converting
employees to the systems and creating

assistance in Scouting is presented L. A. Ferguson, left, Director of the

Boy Scouts of America, honoring the Scout Trading Posts for their service
and contribution in the sale of scouting supplies.

During its first year of operation,
the Board presided over the conver-
sion of 17,000 employees, the evalua-
tion of 13,000 positions and the pub-
lication of 13,000 qualification stand-
ards. Over the past decade, 344
examinations covering 13,000 posi-
tions were announced and 113,000
applications for employment have
been processed. The latter produced
over 52,000 eligible applicants.
The Board consists of the Governor
of the Canal Zone and the Com-
mander in Chief, U.S. Southern
Command. The designated represen-
tatives of the Board members, re-
spectively, are Edward A. Doolan,
Personnel Director for the Panama
Canal organization, Robert M. Don-
ley, Civilian Personnel Advisor to
the Commander in Chief, U.S. South-
ern Command. The chairmanship of
the Board alternates semiannually.
Both Donley, the current designated
chairman, and Doolan are numbered
among the principal designers of the
Merit system and have furnished it
with continuous leadership and di-
rection during the past 10 years.
While the Board members are con-
scious of the accomplishments of the
first 10 years, their attention is
focused on the future for, as a spokes-
man for the Board points out, "We
are proud of the Merit system and
what it has done over the past 10
years for both management and the
employees in the Canal Zone. But
we can't ever say that we're con-
tented with the system. Our work
would then become mechanical and
we'd be oblivious to the constant
need for improvement. So while we
look back with satisfaction, -we also
look forward in anticipation of even
greater gains in the development of
employee programs in the Canal

La Junta de Personal

Celebra sus 10 Anfos

La Junta Coordinadora del Perso-
nal Civil de la Zona del Canal com-
pletarA su 109 aio de estar adminis-
trando el Sistema de Meritos de la
Zona del Canal el pr6ximo domingo.
Los antecedentes del Sistema de
Meritos pueden seguirse desde la Ley
85-550, hasta el Tratado de 1955
entire la Repbblica de PanamA y los
Estados Unidos de America. Sin em-
bargo, el Sistema de Meritos de la
Zona del Canal se distingue, no por
sus origenes, sino porque ha dotado
al empleo en la Zona del Canal con
ciertas cualidades que son inherentes
a los mas avanzados programs de
La principal de estas cualidades es
la igualdad.
Tanto a los empleados panamefios
como a los norteamericanos se les ga-
rantiza igual oportunidad de empleo,
de adiestramiento y de promociones.
Las posiciones son evaluadas, titula-
das y clasificadas sin tomar en consi-
deraci6n la nacionalidad del intere-
sado. En un sentido material, quizs
la mas concrete expresi6n de la igual-
dad aparece en el concept de la pa-
ridad de salario bAsico entire las dos
nacionalidades. Dos empleados, pa-
namefo y norteamericano respectiva-
mente, que prestan servicios en una
posici6n de reclutamiento local, cada
uno tiene garantizada la misma paga
De acuerdo con las reglamentacio-
nes del Secretario del Ej'rcito, en re-
presentaci6n del Presidente de Esta-
dos Unidos, el Sistema de M6ritos
trajo orden a la administraci6n de los
empleados civiles en la Zona del
Canal. Antes de su cumplimiento,
habia grandes diferencias entire las
agencies en lo que respect a la ma-
nera en que se reclutaba, nombraba,
promovia y compensaba a los em-
pleados. El Sistema de M6ritos pro-
porciona normas y procedimientos
de manera que las reglamentaciones
que afectan las acciones de personal
puedan ser aplicadas uniformemente
en toda la Zona del Canal.

Una tercera cuallidad significativa
del Sistema de M6ritos es el infasis
que hace en los examenes por oposi-
ci6n como requisite previo a la ob-
tenci6n de un empleo en la Zona del
Canal. Muchos norteamericanos, en
virtud de la conversion al Sistema de
M6ritos de la Zona del Canal, reci-
bieron una categoria que les permit,
ademis, obtener empleo Federal en
los Estados Unidos. Todos los em-

pleados que estAn dentro del Siste-
ma de MBrito, sin consideraci6n a su
ciudadania, son ademas elegibles para
obtener traslado entire las diversas
agencias que operan dentro de la
Zona del Canal.
La autoridad para el traslado de
empleados norteamericanos se basa
en la condici6n de que el Sistema de
Meritos de la Zona del Canal sea

Dicen las malas lenguas que Ri-

a Motor, actualmente al servicio de
la Oficina del Maestre de la Rada de

Esas mismas malas lenguas afirman
que debi6 ser diplomatico. Tal es la
florida elocuencia que utiliza el ami-
go Martinez en su diario dialogar con
las personas que lo tratan. No nos han
informado sobre los studios que ha
hecho durante su vida. Pero lo que
si es seguro es que sus modales y su
'6xico estin a la altura de las mejo-

paralelo al Sistema del Servicio Civil
de los Estados Unidos en lo que res-
pecta a la selecci6n y al empleo. La
creaci6n de un program tan prodi-
gioso fue uno de los logros mis sig-
nificativos de finales de la d6cada del
50. Luego de la redacci6n de las
bases reguladoras para el Programa
del Sistema de M6ritos y Salarios,
quedaba la labor de adaptar los em-
pleados al sistema y de crear las nor-
mas y programs que deberian go-
bernar su empleo continuado.
Durante su primer afio de opera-
ciones, la Junta presidi6 la conver-
si6n de 17.000 empleados, la evalua-
ci6n de 13.000 y la publicaci6n de

13.000 normas de calificaci6n. Du-
rante la 6ltima d6cada, se anuncia-
ron 344 examenes que cubrian
13.000 posiciones y fueron procesa-
das 113.000 solicitudes de empleo,
que dieron por resultado 52.000 soli-
citantes elegibles.
La Junta esta integrada por el Go-
bernador de la Zona del Canal y el
Comandante Jefe del Comando Sur
de Estados Unidos. Los representan-
tes designados por los miembros
de la Junta son, respectivamente,
Edward A. Doolan, Director de Per-
sonal del Canal de PanamA, y Robert
M. Donley, Consejero sobre Perso-
nal Civil del Comandante Jefe del

Cada 6 meses la presidencia se cam-
bia alternadamente. Tanto Donley,
el actual president designado, como
Doolan fueron de los principles
creadores del Sistema de M6ritos y
han continuado prestindole su lide-
rato y direcci6n continuamente du-
rante los illtimos 10 afios.
A la vez que los miembros de la
Junta aprecian los logros de los pri-
meros 10 afios, tienen su atenci6n en-
focada en el future, segin sefiala uno
de los miembros de la Junta. "Esta-
mos complacidos con el Sistema de
Mdritos y con lo que se ha logrado
durante los lltimos 10 afios tanto
para la administraci6n como para los
empleados en la Zona del Canal. Pero
jams admitiremos que estamos sa-
tisfechos con el Sistema. Nuestra
labor se convertiria entonces en algo
mecanico y olvidariamos la constant
necesidad de mejorar. De manera
que, a la vez que miramos hacia atrAs
con satisfacci6n, tambi6n miramos
hacia adelante, anticipando logros
mayores ain en el program de em-
pleos en la Zona del Canal".

Roberto Wilson, lanzador del equipo de beisbol de la Escuela Secundaria
de Paraiso, estA demostrando gran calidad en los lanzamientos y poderio en
el bate. En los dos juegos en que ha participado ha disparado dos cuadran-
gulares. En el tiltimo, celebrado entire Paraiso y Rainbow City en el Estadio
de Paraiso el viernes pasado, mantuvo a los bateadores de Rainbow City
en un no-hit no-run hasta el octavo episodio cuando le conectaron el prime-
ro de los 3 hits del equipo de la Costa AtlAntica. Wilson ponch6 a 9 batea-
dores en ese juego. Es un lanzador de much future y tanto su professor Jos6
D. Ampudia como sus compafieros de juego ven en el una promesa y esperan
que sus futures directors lo sepan guiar muy bien.
