Life Insurance


Are Explained
Numerous telephone calls re-
ceived by the Personnel Bureau have
indicated a need for further expla-
nation of the new extension of Fed-
eral Employees' Group Life Insur-
ance to non-U.S.-citizen employees.
To be eligible for coverage under
the new merged Canal Zone Sup-
plementary Life Insurance Plan,
Canal employees must first be
enrolled for regular insurance of-
fered under the Federal Employees'
Group Life Insurance Program
(FEGLI). All permanent non-U.S.-
citizen employees were covered
automatically by FEGLI, effective
September 25.
Premiums for all eligible non-
U.S.-citizen employees were de-
ducted from paychecks received
October 26. This appeared as a
double deduction to cover premiums
due since September 25, the date
of coverage.
Those wishing to cancel their
FEGLI policies may do so by filling
out Standard Form 176. However,
they should be cautioned that if
they cancel FEGLI participation,
their supplemental policies also are
automatically canceled.
Non-U.S. citizens who want to
continue with FEGLI only and wish
to drop the supplementary life in-
surance plan may do so but must
inform the Payroll Branch in writ-
ing to cancel their deduction.



The next series of hearings for
U.S.-citizenship certificates will be
conducted on the Isthmus between
January 18 and 29, 1971. Isthmian
residents who wish to obtain Cer-
tificates of Citizenship for them-
selves or their dependents during
these hearings must submit their
applications before November 30,
Appointments for the Canal Zone
Hearings are set up in New Orleans
by the Immigration and Naturaliza-
tion Service which sends a team of
Examiners to the Isthmus to con-
duct the hearings. Only those appli-
cants who have made formal appli-
cation and for whom the Immigra-
tion and Naturalization Service has
scheduled appointments will be in-
cluded in the January hearings.
The Customs Division coordinates
the Citizenship Certificate Program
in the Canal Zone, receiving and
forwarding the applications to the
New Orleans Office of the Immigra-
tion and Naturalization Service.
Mrs. Lois K. Thomas administers the
local program. Forms, information,
and assistance in preparation may
be obtained from Mrs. Thomas in
the Office of the Chief, Customs
Division, Balboa Terminals Build-
ing. Her office hours are from 7 a.m.
to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Mon-

October 30, 1970

Panama Canal's Honorary Public Service Award is presented by Lt. Gov.
R. S. Hartline, right, to Martin Alonzo P6rez, and John Bullard, for saving
the lives of two swimmers near a beach between Punta Raton and Rio Mar
in the Republic of Panama last month. P6rez is a Panamanian youth em-
ployed at Punta Raton by the American Pacific Sportsmen Association and
Bullard is a Balboa High School senior whose father works for the U.S.
Agency for International Development in Panama. According to witnesses,
the two boys disregarded their own safety by rescuing two swimmers,
identified as James Young, a U.S. serviceman and John Bussie, an engineer.
Young and Bussie had attempted to save a third man who had become
separated from his air mattress in the rough water. The third swimmer
who was unidentified, apparently drowned. The act of heroism by the two
youths was brought to the attention of Canal Zone Gov. W. P. Leber by
Lewis W. Bateman, president of the American Pacific Sportmen Association.

Former BHS Students

Merit Semifinalists
Melinda T. Collins and Anita A.
Woodard, juniors at Balboa High
School last year, have been named
semifinalists in the 1970-71 National
Merit Scholarship Program.
Miss Collins is now enrolled in
Pomona College in California hav-
ing been accepted directly from her
junior year in high school under the
early admissions plan. She is the
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. Winter
Collins, of Diablo Heights. Collins
is retirement counselor for the Canal
organization and Mrs. Collins is an
elementary teacher in the Canal
Zone schools.
Miss Woodard, the daughter of
U.S. Army Col. and Mrs. George S.
Woodard, is a senior at Douglas
McArthur High School in San
Antonio, Tex.
The semifinalists were the highest
scorers in their areas on the National
Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test
(NMSQT), which was given last
February to some 710,000 students
in 17,000 schools nationwide. They
constitute less than 1 percent of the
graduating secondary school seniors
in the United States.
The 14,750 semifinalists, among
the nation's most intellectually tal-
ented high school seniors, will com-
pete for 3,000 Merit Scholarships to
be awarded in 1971.


Rating Given

Former Cadet
Allen W. Dean, a former Balboa
High School ROTC cadet, has been
selected as the Outstanding Soldier
of the 1st Basic Combat Brigade
at Fort Jackson, S.C.
Only soldiers that have clearly
demonstrated outstanding leader-
ship ability are so chosen.
Allen, a graduate of the class of
1970, attributed his getting this
award to the training which he re-
ceived while in the Balboa High
School ROTC. This award is as old
as the Army itself, and competition
for the honor of being named Out-
standing Soldier is keen. Tradi-
tionally, this soldier is assigned a
duty of special trust and honor.
News of Dean's accomplishment
was received in a letter written to
his parents by Col. Charles P. Mur-
ray from Fort Jackson. His parents,
Alcus and Florentina Dean, live in
Cocoli. Dean works at the Army
Printing Plant in Corozal.

As a result of recent elections of
officers for the freshman and sopho-
more classes at Canal Zone Col-
lege the following students were
Freshman Class Officers: Pat Mul-
roy, president; Rudy Crespo, vice
president; Debbie Walter, secretary;
and Jack Hoyle, treasurer.
Sophomore Class Officers: Cindy
Boukalis, president; Deborah 01-
liver, vice president; Linda Lowe,
secretary; Linda Kemp, treasurer.

A container is loaded aboard a large flat bed trailer for moving from ship-
side to the staging area. The trailer is one of 10 purchased recently by the
Terminals Division primarily for handling large shipping containers.

New Equipment Added

Terminals Div. Improves

Service on CZ. Piers

Cargoes of every type and de-
scrption-from acid to zinc and from
bone china to heavy machinery-
pass over the Canal organization
piers each year for delivery to con-
signees in the Republic of Panama
and the Canal Zone.
During fiscal year 1970, which
ended June 30, there was more than
a million tons of such cargo plus an
additional hundred thousand tons of
in-transit cargo discharged by ar-
riving ships and loaded aboard other
vessels for delivery to cons'gnees in
other parts of the world.
New equipment and improved
work methods have been added by
the Canal's Terminals Div'sion to
assure that users receive the best
possible service.
One of the improvements has
been to make efficient use of storage
space which, because of limitations,
can hamper operations at both Cris-
tobal and Balboa.
In recent years, additional cov-
ered storage space was made avail-
able for use by the Cr'stobal local
freight house by relocating a num-
ber of supporting operations, remov-
ing unneeded railroad tracks, and
leveling and resurfacing the area.
At Balboa's Pier 18, the problem
was solved by relocation of support-
ing operations and by acquiring a
building formerly used by another
division. Efforts have been directed
toward acquiring additional space
and insuring the best utilization of
all present areas.
An all-out effort to expedite de-
livery of cargoes to local consignees
is underway. When cargo is not
moved out rapidly, the freight
houses and piers become congested,
the possibility of loss or damage is
greatly increased and financial pen-
alties in the form of storage charges
to the consignee become necessary.

A juried Art Show sponsored by
the Atlantic Art Set will be inaugu-
rated at the Cristobal YMCA tomor-
row at 4 p.m. The show continues
on display until November 7.
Both Panama and Canal Zone
artists are participating in the show
with paintings in all mediums. Three
Panamanian art professors will
serve as judges for the show and
prizes will be awarded in two cate-
gories: oil and mixed.
Edward B. Webster, Atlantic side
Housing Manager, who is retiring
from Panama Canal service this
month, will present the awards
which are being donated by El

The Terminals Division provides
service to customers 7 days a week.
Normally a 16-hour operation, the
work day frequently is extended for
the balance of the day to cope w;th
a heavy workload or to complete a
particular ship on a tight schedule
and help it to meet deadlines.
A large and varied work force is
maintained to assure the high de-
gree of service which world ship-
ping has learned to expect in the
Canal Zone. A large percentage of
the's force is composed of stevedores,
but it includes also many other em-
ployees such as winchmen, crane
operators, blockers and bracers, car-
go checkers, cargo markers, and
forklift operators.
All these occupations are needed
to handle the increase in cargo
bound for the Republic of Panama.
Evidence of the Republic's economic
growth is indicated by the 23 per-
cent increase in cargoes destined for
the Republic during Fiscal 1970 as
compared with the previous year.
New concepts in shopping meth-
ods in recent years have resulted in
changes in the methods of handling
cargo. Foremost in this respect has
been the growth of large container-
ized and unitized shipments.
Two of the largest companies
operating containerized vessels are
Sea Land and Prudential-Grace
Line, which maintain regular sched-
ules between the Canal Zone and
U.S. ports. Thus far, the greatest
impact from this type of operation
has been at Balboa. Special han-
dling arrangements and storage fa-
cilities have been required to meet
this new challenge.
These problems have been over-
come and adequate service is being
provided. The anticipated continu-
ing growth of containerized ship-
ments will be met by the Terminals
Division through better utilization
and expansion of its storage areas
and by providing more equipment
for handling containers.
More recent innovations in ship-
ping methods are the roll-on-roll-off
type and the LASH (lighter aboard
ship) type vessel. The roll-on-roll-
off vessels permit an auto, truck or
loaded trailer to be driven on to or
off the vessels while LASH allow
loaded barges to be discharged.
both reducing the loading and un-
loading time of vessels. Presently,
neither of these systems is in opera-
tion in the Canal Zone as no ade-
quate facilities are available. But
this is being studied and there is a
possibility that in the near future
these services will be provided to
world shipping here.
Recently, the Terminals Division
received 30 new forklift trucks to

Letters of Commendation honor-
ing them for their high performance
on the 1970 National Merit Scholar-
ship Qualifying Test (NMSQT) have
been awarded to nine students at
Balboa and Cristobal High Schools,
Principals Clyde A. Willman and
James H. Pfau have announced.
Those named Commended stu-
dents are William L. Ackerman,
John D. Allis, Jr., Elizabeth Buck-
ley, Anthony R. Dover, Karen A.
Fleshman, Deborah A. Lawson,
Dorothy A. Rendon, and Carol Ann
Thompson from Balboa High
School, and Lana G. Boone from
Cristobal High School.
They are among 35,000 students
in the United States who scored in
the upper 2 percent of those who
are expected to graduate from high
school in 1971. The commendend
students rank just below the 14,750
semifinalists announced in Septem-
ber by the National Merit Scholar-
ship Corporation (NMSC).
Edward C. Smith, president of
NMSC, said: "Although Com-
mended students advance no fur-
ther in the Merit Scholarship com-
petition, their standing in this
nationwide program deserves pub-
lic recognition. Their high perform-
ance on the NMSQT gives promise
of continued success in college.
The Commended students' names
are reported to certain scholarship-
granting agencies and to the col-
leges they named as their first and
second choices when they took the
NMSQT in February 1970. The
reports include home addresses, test
scores, and anticipated college
major and career intentions of the

Hooper Assists

In Emergencies

At Bocas Fair

Capt. E. L. Hooper, drillmaster,
Fire Division, assisted in two actual
emergencies while on official assign-
ment to assist the Panama National
Red Cross during the Bocas del
Toro Fair.
On opening day at the fair, Cap-
tain Hooper was giving a lec-
ture and demonstration of Rescue
Breathing when a young woman
fainted. Reacting immediately, he
removed the doll, which he was
using to demonstrate rescue breath-
ing, and placed the woman on the
table. He administered rescue
breathing and treatment for shock
after which she was placed on one
of the Fire Division's fracture
boards and transported in a private
car to the hospital.
The next day, Captain Hooper
assisted Alejandro James, a Red
Cross instructor, in a drowning case
involving a 13-year-old girl.

have become economically unserv-
iceable and to supplement the
present fleet.
An order has been placed for two
large 30-ton fork trucks to be used
primarily for handling large ship-
ping containers. The division also
recently acquired 10 new large flat
bed trailers for moving 20-foot con-
tainers to or from shipside to the
staging area. In connection with this,
a number of doors at Cristobal pier
sheds have been widened to facil-
itate easy movement of containers
from the pier apron into the shed
or to the pier apron for reloading
aboard the carrier.
As an added move to provide
better service, it was announced
October 22 that the freight houses
in Cristobal and Ancon, previously
closed for business on Saturdays,
will now be open from 7 a.m. to
1 p.m. those days.
While the Terminals Division an-
ticipates problems during the heav-
ier work periods from September

Una Aclaracion

Sobre Seguros


Numerosas llamadas telef6nicas
recibidas por la Direcci6n de Per-
sonal han indicado la necesidad de
mayor informaci6n sobre la nueva
extension del Seguro de Vida Colec-
tivo para Empleados Federales a los
empleados no estadounidenses.
Para ser eligible en la cobertura
del nuevo Plan Suplementario de
Seguro de Vida de la Zona del Canal
fusionado, los empleados deberan
inscribirse primero en el seguro
regular ofrecido en el Programa de
Seguro de Vida Colectivo para Em-
pleados Federales (FEGLI). Todos
los empleados permanentes no esta-
dounidenses fueron cubiertos auto-
mAticamente por FEGLI a partir del
25 de septiembre.
Las primas para todos los emplea-
dos no estadounidenses elegibles
fueron deducidos de los cheques de
pago recibidos el 26 de octubre.
Esto apareci6 como una double de-
ducci6n para cubrir las primas ven-
cidas desde el 25 de septiembre, la
fecha de la cobertura.
Aquellos que deseen cancelar sus
p6lizas FEGLI pueden hacerlo lle-
nando el Formulario Regular 176.
Sin embargo, deben ser advertidos
de quc si cancelan la participaci6n
de FEGLI, sus p6lizas suplementa-
rias son tambi6n canceladas auto-
Los que no son ciudadanos esta-
dounidenses que deseen continuar
con FECLI solamente y quieren
dejar el plan de seguro de vida
suplementario, pueden hacerlo, pero
deber'n informarlo a la Secci6n de
Planillas por escrito para cancelar
su deducci6n.

De Graduandos

La Sra. Viviana de Martin, sub-
jefa oficinista transcriptora de dic-
tifono, de servicio en el Labora-
torio del Hospital Gorgas, dict6 a
las ahumnas del 119 grado de la
Escuela Secundaria de Paraiso una
conferencia sobre los deberes de la
secretaria del m6dico. La Sra. de
Martin, que fue escuchada con su-
ma atenci6n por las alumnas, habl6
sobre las habilidades, conocimien-
tos y cualidades necesarias para el
desempeiio de una secretariat.
Hizo hincapi6 en la necesidad de
que la secretaria sea eficiente, con-
fiable, nitida, leal y entusiasta.
La conferencia de la Sra. de Mar-
tin fue la primera de una series pre-
parada por el Departamento de
Guia de dicha secundaria para las
niiias que desean ser secretaries. Las
otras conferencias versarin sobre
"La Secretaria Ejecutiva", "La Se-

ma. Fueron recibidas por la direc-
tora del plantel, Profesora Carlota
de Guevara, y durante su visit y
gira por las diferentes instalaciones
de ese modernisimo plantel fueron
acompafiadas por la Sra. Griselda
L6pez de Romero, jefe de rela-
ciones publicas de la escuela.
En la biblioteca especializada de
la instituci6n, se les explic6 el sis-
tema Braile de lectura para ciegos.
Luego, tuvieron la sorpresa de en-
contrar a un antiguo resident de
Gamboa ciego tambien, el Sr. Jos6
Alonzo, quien actualmente trabaja
en la Escuela Helen Keller.
Las alumnas quedaron impresio-
nadas al saber que, a pesar de que
Alonzo tiene 19 afios de haber que-
dado ciego, desempefia sus deberes
tan bien que puede sostener a su
esposa, ciega igualmente y a sus
tres hijos.

Col6n", el dia 5 de noviembre de
1903, cuando se sell la indepen-
dencia de la Reptiblica de Panami,
con la salida de las 6ltimas tropas
colombianas del Puerto de Col6n.
El Club "Circulo Siete", de Rain-
bow City, patrocina este event
social que promete ser sonadisimo
y que tendri lugar en el Sky Room
de Crist6bal, donde se bailari ese
dia desde las 6 p.m. hasta las 2 a.m.
del 6 de noviembre.
La minifalda mis corta se Ile-
vara un premio, lo mismo que la
midifalda que sea considerada la
mejor por un jurado. Tambien ha-
bra un premio para el caballero que
Ileve el mejor vestido estilo moder-
no y se exhorta a los que asistan al
baile a que participen en la com-
petencia por los valiosos premios.
El combo "Los Exciters" propor-
cionara la musica para este baile,
por lo que se da por seguro que serA
un 6xito, pues ese conjunto ha ame-
nizado los mejores bailes que han
tenido lugar en el sector Pacifico
del Istmo, aparte de que es muy del
gusto de los residents del Athintico,
donde ya ha amenizado bailes que
han constituido rotundos 6xitos.

Una muchacha bonita es como
una melodia. DespuBs que uno se
casa con ella, hay que enfrentarse a
su music.

para que los autobuses salgan a
tiempo. Por lo menos un represen-

La 6pera es un lugar en donde un
tipo es apufialado en la espalda y
en vez de sangrar, canta.

Los alumnos de la Escuela Primaria de Paraiso, en uni6n del director del
plantel Profesor Audley Webster y del personal docente, desfilaron por las
calls de la poblaci6n para invitar al public en general a tomar part en
la Semana de la Educaci6n.

Cargamentos de todo tipo y des-
cripci6n-desde Acidos hasta zinc
y desde porcelana tranhicida a ma-
quinaria pesada-pasan por los mue-
lies de la empresa del Canal todos
los aiios, para ser entregados a des-
tinatarios en la Rep6blica de Pana-
ma y la Zona del Canal.
Durante el afio fiscal 1970, dichos
cargamentos representaron mAs de
un mill6n de toneladas, ademAs de
cien mil toneladas adicionales de
carga en trAnsito que fue descargada
en los muelles y puesta nuevamente
a bordo de otras naves para su en-
trega a destinatarios en otras parties
del mundo.
La Division de Terminales del
Canal ha adquirido nuevo equipo
e implantado nuevos metodos con
el fin de que los usuarios reciban
el mejor servicio possible.
Una de las mejoras ha consistido
en usar mAs eficientemente el espa-
cio para dep6sitos que, debido a sus
limitaciones, puede entorpecer las
En los l6timos afios, se ha creado
mas espacio disponible en el dep6-
sito local de aduana de Crist6bal
mudando a otros lugares cierto nil-
mero de operaciones auxiliaries,
retirando vias de ferrocarril inne-
cesarias y nivelando y pavimentando
de nuevo toda el Area.
En el Muelle 18 de Balboa, el
problema fue resuelto trasladando
las operaciones auxiliares y adqui-
riendo un edificio usado anterior-
mente por otra division. Se estAn
hacienda esfuerzos con el fin de
adquirir espacio adicional y de utili-
zar de la mejor manera todos los
espacios actuales.
Se esta efectuando un esfuerzo
total por apresurar la entrega de su
carga a los consignatarios locales.
Cuando la carga no es retirada rapi-
damente, los dep6sitos de aduana
y los muelles se congestionan, la
posibilidad de p6rdidas o dafios
aumenta y se hace necesario aplicar
penas financieras en forma de gra-
vAmenes por almacenaje a los desti-

el dia de trabajo con frecuencia
es extendido con el fin de enfrentarse
a la demand o para terminar de
tender a una nave en particular a
la que hay que ayudar a cumplir
con su itinerario.
Se mantiene un personal nume-
roso y variado con el fin de mante-
ner la alta calidad de servicio que
los circulos navieros mundiales han
aprendido a esperar en la Zona del
Canal. Este personal esti integrado
por estibadores, ademAs de muchos
otros empleados tales como opera-
rios de montacargas, operarios de
gria, acomodadores y fijadores de
carga, verificadores de carga, mar-
cadores de carga y operarios de
montacargas de trinche.
Todos estos trabajadores son ne-
cesarios para tender el siempre
creciente volume de carga dirigido
a la Replblica de PanamA. Eviden-
cia del crecimiento econ6mico de
la Republica es el aumento de un
23 por ciento en la carga destinada
a Panama durante el afio fiscal 1970.
Los nuevos concepts en navega-
ci6n surgidos 6ltimamente han obli-
gado a cambios en el manejo de la
carga. Lo mis notable en este aspec-
to ha sido la aparici6n de grades
embarques furgonizados y emba-
lados en unidades.
Dos de las mas grande companiias
que operan naves furgonizadas son
Sea-Land y la Prudential-Grace,
que operan servicios regulars en-
tre la Zona del Canal y puertos de
los Estados Unidos. Hasta ahora,
en Balboa es que se ha sentido el
impact ins grande de esta clase
de operaci6n. Se han tenido que
hacer arreglos especiales para el
manejo y se han'necesitado' instala-
ciones especiales para almacenaje.
Estos problems han sido resuel-
tos y se ha dado el service adecuado.
La Division de Terminales se en-
frentarA al continue crecimiento que
se espera tengan los embarques fur-
gonizados por medio de una mejor
utilizacian de sus Areas de almace-
naje, que tambien serAn ampliadas
y proporcionara mas equipo para
manejar los furgones.
Innovaciones mas recientes en la
navegaci6n son los barcos de los
cuales salen y entran con su carga
los camiones y los del tipo LASH
(con barcazas a bordo). Los primeros
permiten que los autos, camiones,
o remolques cargados entren o sal-
gan de la embarcaci6n mientras que
los LASH permiten que barcazas
cargadas sean puestas a bordo o
retiradas de la nave, reduciendo el
tiempo de dichas operaciones. Ac-
tualmente, ninguna de estas dos
operaciones se efectila en la Zona
del Canal, puesto que no existen
instalaciones adecuadas. Pero estan
siendo estudiadas y existe la posi-
bilidad de que en el future proximo
estos servicios sean ofrecidos aqui
a hta navegacion miundial.
Recientemente, la Divisi6n de
Ter'nnales recibi6 30 nuevos mon-
tacargas de trinche que senrn usados
principalnente para reemplazar a
los vicjos que se han tornado econ6-
micamcnte insrvibles "y para ani-
pliar la flota actual.
So h;an ordenado dos montacar-
gas de trinche grande de 30 tone-
ladas que atenderin a los grades
furgones maritimos. La division ad-
quiri6 ademas recientemente 10
grades remol(ues de plataforma
para trasladar los furgones de 20
pies de largo desde cl costado de
las naves a los lugares de almace-
najc y viccverisa. En rclaci6n con
esta operaci6n se h;a ampliado va-
rias l)purtas de ]as Areas cubicrtas
de los muelles de Crist6bal. Se
facilitair asi el movimiento de los
furirgones en dichos mnuclles.
Como medida adicional para pro-
porcionar mejor servicio, se anuncio
el 22 de octubre que los depositos
de aduana de Crist6bal y Anc6n,
anteriormente ccrrados los sibados,
abriiin esos dias de 7 a.m. a 1 )p.m.
A pesar de que la Divisi6n de
Tenilinales cspera problems du-
rante el pcriodo n iAs pesado de tra-
bajo, de septiemlbrc a enero, diclos
problems senin reducidos al mini-
mo con las medidas que ya han sido
tomadas y la aplicaci6n de nuevos
concepts en preparaci6n, de mane-
ra que scan mejorados auin mais los
servicios que ahora se prestan.
