Employee Performance

Rating Time Is Here

It's performance rating time again
and if you are recommended for an
outstanding performance rating you
may be eligible to receive more
money for your job performance
this year than you did last year.
As a result of the implementation
last year of the revised Canal or-
ganization's Incentive Awards Pro-
gram, depending upon his grade,
an employee may be recommended
for a cash award of up to $350 in
connection with an outstanding per-
formance rating.
Another new feature of the per-
formance rating program this year
is that non-manual and postal em-
ployees in permanent positions may
receive a quality step increase if
recommended for an "outstanding"
rating. The step increase would be
granted instead of a cash award.
The granting of a quality step in-
crease in connection with an out-
standing rating is the only time that
an employee may receive a quality
step increase.
Under the rating program an em-
ployee may receive a rating of "out-
standing," "satisfactory," or "un-
satisfactory." In each case, a super-
visor must discuss and notify em-
ployees of their ratings, Written jus-
tifications are required for "outstand-
ing" and "unsatisfactory" ratings.
The purpose of the annual per-
formance rating plan is to provide
a method to evaluate the work per-
formance of employees in order to
recognize their merits and contribu-
tion to efficiency and economy. It
also is felt that it helps improve
employee performance by: strength-
ening supervisor-employee relation-
ships; identifying work standards
and requirements; informing em-

C.Z. Heart Assn. Funds

Supporting F

Funds contributed by the Canal
Zone Heart Association are being
used to partially support special re-
search on blood vessels being con-
ducted at the University of Arizona.
The Association also recently spon-
sored special training on heart
disease in children for a Gorgas
Hospital physician.

title of Dr. Johlson's project is

the behavior of the minute blood
vessels which control the flow of
blood through the tissues.

The tours, which will be conducted
by Roy Sharp, supervisor of grounds,
Pacific area, will begin at 9 a.m. at
the entrance to the gardens.

tinental divide, Summit Gardens
provides a veritable wonderland for
the naturalist, the botanist, or the
casual visitor.
The gardens were established in

disseminate plants, both useful and
ornamental, for this area. Since
then, 15,000 different kinds of flora
have been introduced.

ghosts and has traveled widely in

Books about a famous institution

March Declared

Red Cross Month

By President

President Richard M. Nixon has
designated March as Red Cross
Month and urged Federal em-
ployees and military personnel to
give special support to the Red
Cross during this period through
service as volunteers and blood
Because of its extensive disaster
relief programs and its services to
the men and women of the Armed
Forces in Vietnam and 29 other
countries, the Red Cross this year
will require $134,000,000 to carry
on its programs.
Canal Zone residents, well aware
of the work carried on by the Red
Cross in both war and peace, have
actively supported it on a year-
round basis through generous con-
tributions to the Combined Federal
In his memorandum, the Pres-
ident stated: "As President of the
United States and Honorary Chair-
man of the American Red Cross,
I am asking all civilian employees
of the Federal Government and the
members of the Armed Forces to
make a special effort during this
period to lend full support to the
many important activities of the
Red Cross including its blood donor
program. For Federal personnel,
the month of March can have par-
ticular significance in terms of
service which we can render our
fellow man through wholehearted
support of Red Cross activities."

what some people get for an actual
crime of violence.
The quote appeared in the article
entitled "The Legal Issues: Justice
and Politics" which is included in
the general story covering the ver-
dict on the seven defendants tried
on charges resulting from demons-
trations during the past National
Democratic Convention.
The fact that Mrs. Helm is con-
sidered a legal authority of the
caliber whose opinion is asked by
a world circulated news magazine
comes as no surprise to her parents
in the Canal Zone.
A rare combination of beauty
and brains, Mrs. Helm was grad-
uated from Balboa High School in
1960 with one of the highest grade
averages in the history of the school.
She had straight "A's" in every
subject including gym for the entire
4-year high school period.
She obtained a scholarship to
Mills College in Oakland, Calif.,
and was graduated in 1964 with a
degree in music. But law appealed
more to Mrs. Helm and she decided
to continue her studies at the
Hastings College of Law in San
Francisco. She obtained a doctor's
degree in law in 1967.
She began the practice of law in
San Francisco as a partner of Melvin
Belli, the well-known California
trial attorney. Recently she opened
her own legal office and specializes
in general litigation. She is married
to John Helm, a bank manager em-
ployed by the Bank of America in
San Francisco.

Bella Exposici'n

De Gemas Habra

Mariana a las 8

La Sociedad de Gemas y Minera-
les de la Zona del Canal tendrA una
exposici6n y bazar en el Circulo
Stevens, mariana sabado, desde las
8 a.m. y permanecer abierta hasta
las 5 p.m.
Lo mis interesante en la exposi-
ci6n seri una exhibici6n de mine-
rales de varias parties del mundo y
colecciones de trabajos de artesania
efectuados por los miembros del
club, entire los que sobresalen mesas
hechas con losas y orfebreria a base
de alambres retorcidos.
Las anteriores exhibiciones de la
Sociedad de Gemas y Minerales de
la Zona del Canal han constituido
6xitos y atraido gran cantidad de
p6blico al Circulo Sstevens, por lo
que se espera que muchas personas
se den cita mafiana en ese lugar,
para admirar las joyas que se pue-
den manufacturer con materials
que abundan en PanamA.


Franklyn Kwai Ben es ayudante estudiantil en la Sec-
ci6n de Cuentas por Pagar y por Cobrar de la Con-
taduria del Canal de PanamA. Naci6 en la ciudad de
PanamA el 29 de julio de 1952 y actualmente reside con
sus padres en la Calle 82, Paitilla, de la ciudad capital.
Tanto los studios primaries como los secundarios los
curs6 en el Colegio La Salle, uno de los mis acredita-
dos de PanamA. Actualmente estA en la Universidad
Santa Maria La Antigua, donde estudia calculo y len-
guas y literature. Pero su intenci6n es hacer studios
de medicine, una vez que haya llenado todos los requi-
sitos para iniciar esa carrera. Franklin es cat6lioo y la
iglesia donde le gusta cumplir con sus deberes reli-
giosos es el Santuario del Coraz6n de Maria. Dedicado
por complete a sus studios, hasta ahora no ha tenido
ning6n trabajo. Esta es su primer experiencia y dice
que le ha encantado. "Es digna de admirar la gran
oportunidad que todos los afios brinda el Canal de
PanamA a numerosos estudiantes de los diversos plan-
teles de la Rep6blica de PanamA de aprender cosas
interesantes, en una diversidad de ocupaciones, a la vez
que obtienen ganancias en metAlico durante sus vaca-
ciones, que despuds les sirven para ayudarse en sus
studioss, dice con much convencimiento. Agrega:
"Ademas de tener que practical el ingles, nos familia-
rizamos con muchas de las cosas que hacen al profe-
sional". A pesar de su juventud, es persona de muchos
interests. Le encanta jugar a los bolos, la pesca y
todos los deportees de pista y campo. AdemAs practice
el levantamiento de pesas y le encanta el ramo de las
investigaciones cientificas. Recuerda el paseo que se
les dio a los ayudantes estudiantiles por todas las ins-
talaciones del Canal y dice: "lo que mAs me admir6 fue
la perfecci6n del mecanismo que mueve, con muy
-- poca potencia, la gigantesca mole de las compuertas,
en las esclusas del Canal".

nes 2 de marzo y decidi6 que era
el dia en que se iba a dedicar, en
cucrpo y alma, a participar en los
XI Juegos Centroamericanos y del
Caribe. Se compr6 un vestido de-
portivo de much sabor caribe. Una
amplia camisa de seda roja con or-
namentaciones amarillas, debajo de
la cual asomaba una camiseta tam-
bien roja; pantalones rojos, tirando
a rojo vino, sandalias rojas y medias
rojas; completaba el atuendo de
Brooks un sombrero de fieltro rojo
estilo vaquero. For suerte, no habia
toros en el estadio. La verdad es
que si el amigo Brooks se hubicra
encontrado un toro el pasado lunes,
se las hubiera visto a gatas.

Ese mismo dia, William Rave-
neau, el popular "Willie", tambi6n
de la Contaduria, andaba como
loco buscando un fot6grafo para
que retrataran a Ashton Brooks. No
lo pudo encontrar, por mala suerte.
