"Show Boat"

Comes to Town

Tonight at 8

The curtain rises tonight at 8 p.m.
on the United Fund's gala produc-
tion of Edna Ferber's Show Boat,
the musical comedy of the century,
directed by Don Musselman and
produced by Bruce Quinn.
Endearing melodies such as "Old
Man River," "Make Believe," and
"Why Do I Love You," will echo
in the Balboa High School Audito-
rium bringing all the romance,
poignancy and rememberances of
Mississippi River showboat days.
The production will be given until
August 2.
Angela Bomford, as Magnolia
Hawkes, and David Ellis, as Gay-
lord Ravenal, play the leading roles
in the musical extravaganza that
has won the hearts of millions of
theatergoers and movie fans since
it was first produced in 1927. A sup-
porting cast and singing and
dancing choruses of more than 80
persons promises one of the most
entertaining of all United Fund
Tickets for Show Boat may be
obtained by calling Balboa 2844 or
Panama 62-4587 between 2 and 4
p.m. and 7 and 9 p.m. daily. There

CSC Okays Pay Raises

For Special Categories

The Canal organization has been
granted permission to raise the
salaries of employees in special pay
categories, who did not automatic-
ally receive the July pay increase
based on the GS statutory schedule.
As a result many of those affected
will receive higher increases than
had been announced earlier.
Authorization to adjust the salary
rates was received from the Civil
Service Commission and the new
rates, effective July 13, 1969, have
been coordinated for local applica-
tion by the Canal Zone Civilian Per-
sonnel Policy Coordinating Board.
A total of seven different wage
schedules are involved.
Professional engineers, account-
ants, auditors, and medical officers
presently receiving special higher
rates will get increases of about 9
percent, the same as the increases
authorized for employees paid at
regular non-manual rates. The in-
crease resulted from continued re-
cruitment and retention difficulty
and because of the level of salaries
paid by private employers for the
same or similar jobs in the United
Lesser increases, from 3.5 to 7
percent, have been authorized for
various physical scientists such as
chemists, hydrologists, meteoro-
logists, industrial hygienists, geo-
logists, psychologists, and nurses.

For these categories there either has
been some easing of recruitment
and retention difficulties or the
regular pay scale is becoming more
competitive with private industry.
Because of the delay in receiving
word from the Civil Service Com-
mission regarding the new special
rates, the Canal organization used
the Civil Service formula to calcu-
late the new special rates effective
July 13, 1969. Employees compen-
sated on special rate schedules will
receive the pay of these schedules
in their paychecks August 4.
The increases under the Civil
Service formula were in some cases
substantially lower than the revised
schedules just received from the
Civil Service Commission. Em-
ployees will receive any differences
due them in the August 18 pay-
An important factor that in-
fluenced the Civil Service Com-
mission approved special rate ad-
justments for nurses was the recent
revision of position classification
and qualification standards for
nurses. Under these revised stand-
ards, the majority of NM-6 posi-
tions were raised to NM-7 and some
NM-7 and NM-8 positions were
raised to NM-9. This in effect has
lessened the recruitment and reten-
tion difficulties and made the pay
scale more competitive.

Rev. Payne Resic

The Reverend Clarence C. Payne,
pastor of the Balboa Union Church,
has resigned his pastorate to attend
Florida State University this fall
where he will pursue studies in
family living and marriage counsel-
ing leading to master of arts and
doctor of philosophy degrees.
Reverend Payne, who is affec-
tionately called Clarence by his
congregation, ends a 7-year ministry
with the Union Churches of the
Canal Zone, the first 2 years at the
Gatun Union Church. He has stated
that he definitely plans to stay in
the ministry and feels that this addi-

will complement his work in the

ship in his Church extended into
many related community positions
of leadership and responsibility. His
most significant community involve-
ment was the chairmanship of the
Governor's Executive Committee
for Youth-Family-Conununity Rela-
tions. The Executive Committee
serves as a citizens' advisory board
to the Governor on community
problems. Its 80 members serve on
six subcommittees and deal with
such problems as drug abuse and
juvenile delinquency.
Reverend Payne's participation in
other community involvements has
included the following: president,
Pacific Religious Workers Associa-
tion (1965); chairman, Clergy Youth
Study Committee (1966-67); chair-
man, Isthmian Youth Fellowship
Camp Program (1962-66); chair-
man, CARE Packing and Distribu-
tion Program, Atlantic side (1963-
1964). He has been a member of
the American Society Board of Di-
rectors, YMCA Committee of Man-
agement, Boy Scout Council of
Canal Zone, United Fund Board of
Trustees and Balboa Teen Club
Board of Directors.
One of the major accomplish-
ments of the Balboa Union Church
during Reverend Payne's ministry
was a $100,000 renovation and air-
conditioning program, which in-
cluded the basement of the Youth
and Education Building. A loan for
the project obtained for a 12-year
period was liquidated in 5 years.
Reverend Payne and his wife,
Rosita, and their two children will
leave the Isthmus July 29 on the
SS Cristobal.
Among the activities planned for
the Paynes before their departure
is a congregational covered-dish
fellowship dinner scheduled for
July 20 at 5:30 p.m. in the Social
Hall of the Church. A despedida
tea will be held Sunday afternoon,
July 27, from 3 to 5 p.m. The
Church Council is extending an
open invitation for the tea to all
friends in the civilian and military
communities of the Canal Zone and
Panama who wish to add their besf
wishes to Reverend Payne and his

That old worksong, "I've Been
Working On The Railroad" has spe-
cial significance to Virgil Tayacke,
Dick Slobig, and Gordon Deuer-
meyer of the Railroad Division.
They have been doing a really tre-
mendous job in making repairs to
the track between Corozal and Fri-
joles. All this is part of the PRR's
efforts to improve services to the
public. Besides, where else can you
commuters travel from coast-to-
coast at such low rates?
Robbie Rupp, who recently re-
turned from college in the States
and promptly enlisted in the Air
Force, was telling us about his in-
duction examination. He says there
were two questions, one for the
"smart" boys and one for the fel-
lows with lower I.Q.'s. The first
question, intended only for those
who were college graduates was-
"If Jane pays 60 cents for 1 dozen
eggs, how much is she paying for
each egg?" The question for the
fellows who dropped-out of high
school, etc., was-"If Jane pays 60
cents for 1 dozen eggs, how much
is she paying for each egg?" Some-
where, within those lines, there is
a moral to be found.

The reason, or reasons, for the
fellows congregating around the
Housing and Terminals Building in
Cristobal these days appear to be
Rene Ballou, Ann Riggs, Chris Her-
ring, Sarah Palumbo, and Cathy
Schiebe. One of the fellows com-
mented that the scenery on the

Autorizacion Recibida

Para Ciertos Aumentos

La organizaci6n del Canal ha re-
cibido permiso para aumentar los
salaries de los empleados de cate-
gorias especiales, que no recibieron
automiticamente el aumento de
sueldo de julio, que esta basado
en la lista legal del Servicio al
Como resultado, muchos de los
afectados recibiran mayores aumen-
tos que los que se habian anun-
ciado anteriormente.
La autorizaci6n para hacer los
ajustes en las tarifas de salaries fue
dada por la Comisi6n de Servicio
Civil y las nuevas tarifas, efectivas
el 13 de julio de 1969, han sido
coordinadas para su aplicaci6n local
por la Junta Coordinadora de Pau-
tas del Personal Civil de la Zona
del Canal.
Un total de site diferentes listas
de salaries estan implicadas.
Los ingenieros profesionales, con-
tadores, auditors y medicos, que
actualmente reciben tarifas altas es-
peciales, tendrAn un aumento de
alrededor del 9 por ciento, el mismo
que ha sido autorizado para aque-
llos empleados de tarifas regulars
no manuales. Este aumento ha sido
el resultado de las continues difi-
cultades en reclutar y retener a
dichos empleados, debido a los ni-
veles de salaries que pagan las em-
presas particulares en los Estados
Unidos por labores similares.
Aumentos menores, de 3.5 a 7
por ciento, han sido autorizados
para various cientificos fisicos, tales
como quimicos, hidr6logos, meteo-
rologos, higienistas industriales,
ge6logos, psic6logos y enfermeras.
Ello se debe a que se ha facilitado
su reclutamiento y retenci6n o a que
su escala de sueldos estA mAs equi-
parada con la de la industrial pri-
Debido a la demora en el aviso

de parte de la Comisi6n de Servicio
Civil respect a las nuevas tarifas,
el Canal us6 la formula del Servicio
Civil para calcular las nuevas tari-
fas especiales, efectivas el 13 de
julio de 1969. Los empleados que
son compensados en base a listas
de tarifas especiales recibir6n el
aumento segin esas listas en sus
cheques del 4 de agosto.
Los aumentos de acuerdo con la
f6rmula del Servicio Civil eran en
ciertos casos substancialmente me-
nores que los de las listas revisadas
que acaban de ser recibidas de la
Comisi6n de Servicio Civil. Los
empleados recibiran cualquier dife-
rencia que les corresponda, en sus
cheques del 18 de agosto.
Factor important para que la
Comisi6n de Servicio Civil apro-
bara ajustes especiales en las tari-
fas para las enfermeras fue la re-
ciente clasificaci6n y calificaci6n de
normas para la posici6n de enfer-
mera. De acuerdo con las normas
revisadas, la mayoria de las posi-
ciones NM-6 fueron elevadas a
NM-7 y algunas posiciones NM-7
y NM-8 fueron elevadas a NM-9.
Ello ha aliviado las dificultades de
reclutamiento v retenci6n de em-
pleados y ha hecho mlis competitive
la escala de sus sueldos.
