8,000 PC Employees LT. GOV. HARTLINE; NEW

To Get Pay Raises FR I)IRFCTC) NAMED

Pay raises averaging 10.3 percent
have been approved for some 8,000
Manual Category employees of the
Canal organization.
The general pay adjustment, the
largest Manual Category pay raise
on record, is effective July 11 and
will show up in the Panama Canal
paychecks of August 2. The raises
were approved for Panama Canal
employees earlier this week by Gov.
David S. Parker, following coordina-
tion with other Canal Zone Federal
agencies and consultation with
local labor representatives by the
Canal Zone Civilian Personnel Poli-
cy Coordinating Board.
Approximately 7,200 non-U.S.-
citizen employees and 800 U.S.-cit-
izen employees will receive raises
as a result of this adjustment, which
will increase the Canal's payroll by
$3.2 million.
Affected will be Canal employees
in Manual grades MG-3 through
MG-13, all Manual Category super-
visors, apprentices, learners, fee-
rate and miscellaneous designations
based on any of these grades and
Railroad Group employees.
This pay increase does not apply
to employees in grades MG-1 and
MG-2, whose rates were increased
the past February under the Fair

New Driver's


The Canal Zone License Section
will inaugurate new driver's licens-
ing procedures, effective July 12,
including the issuance of a new type
operator's license.
The 2" by3" operator's license
will be in full color as produced by
a sophisticated Polaroid Land Iden-
tification System. It will combine a
very sharp color photograph of the
driver with identifying data, making
it unnecessary for applicants to fur-
nish photographs.
With new equipment recently
purchased and already in operation,
an applicant goes through a more
comprehensive and practical exam-
ination than in the past. The new
licensing procedures incorporate
such features as a complete vision
screening test, a brake reaction test
and a night vision-glare recovery
test. The vision screening test in-
cludes visual acuity, color vision,
peripherial vision, and depth per-
Since operator licensing is recog-
nized as a major factor in highway
safety and almost every driving de-
cision made is based upon vision,
the adoption of these new proce-
dures is directed at reducing motor
vehicle accidents in the Canal Zone.
The fee for the new license will
be $2 and the license period has
been extended from 3 to 4 years
with all new licenses expiring on the
holder's birthdate. Holders of the
old type license will continue to
drive on their licenses until their
regular expiration date. Upon re-
newal, the new license will be

Labor Standards Act minimum wage

by an amount equal to or greater
than that which would have been
produced by the present increase.
Under the same policy, grades MG-3
through MG-6 will receive small
increases ranging from 2 cents per
hour at MG-3, step 1 to 4 cents per
hour at MG-6, step 3.
The average increase for grades
MG-7 through MG-9 nonsecurityy),
not having received increases under
the FLSA in February, approxi-
mates 10.6 percent.
Manual Supervisory grades over
Canal Zone wage base jobs will re-
ceive increases averaging 6.4 per-
cent, although this percentage will
vary considerably, depending on the
base level supervised.
For U.S. wage base jobs (those
at grade MG-10 and above and all
security jobs), the increases gen-
erally fall in the 10 to 10.3 percent
Apprentices in training for MG-10
jobs will receive increases averaging
about 10 percent. Those in target
MG-9 apprenticeships will receive
slightly higher percentage increases,
except for first-year positions that
received a larger increase in the
February minimum wage adjust-
Also affected will be employees
who are receiving retained rates
(MG-8R) as a result of the elimina-
tion of the old grade M-9 last July
when the Manual Category was con-
verted to the Coordinated Federal
Wage System (CFWS) grade struc-
ture. New rates of pay for these em-
ployees will be computed under
CFWS pay savings rules provided
by the Civil Service Commission.
These rules stipulate that retained
rates will terminate when overtaken
by regular grade MG-8 rates in sub-

Col. Richard S. Hartline has com-
pleted his tour of duty as Lieu-
tenant Governor of the Canal Zone
and is scheduled to depart from the
Isthmus with Mrs. Hartline Sunday,
July 11, to take up his new assign-
ment in the United States.
The Lieutenant Governor will be
succeeded by Col. Charles R. Clark,
who has been Engineering and Con-
struction Director since September
1969. Colonel Clark's position will
be filled by Col. Charles I. McGin-
nis, now stationed at St. Paul, Minn.
The Hartlines will return to
Washington, D.C., where he has

neer Strategic Studies Group in the
Office of the Chief of Engineers.
Colonel Hartline came to the
Canal Zone in October 1968, fol-
lowing an assignment with the U.S.
Military Assistance Command in
Vietnam. Earlier in his career, he
served in Washington as Chief, Per-
sonnel Plans and Policy Branch,
Plans and Programing Office, Office
of Personnel Operations, Depart-
ment of the Army.

this year.
The long range plan for improve-
ment of Gorgas Hospital was com-
pleted in November 1970 when
Section O was opened formally by
top Canal officials. The ceremony
marked the completion of the hos-
pital rehabilitation program started
in 1961. Renovation of Coco Solo

Other important programs started
in the past 3 years include rehabili-

by Youth Advisor Clarence C.
During his Isthmian tour as Lieu-
tenant Governor of the Canal Zone
and Vice President of the Panama
Canal Company, Colonel Hartline
and his wife, Harriet, have taken an
active part in community affairs.
Colonel Hartline has been par-
ticularly dedicated to the scouting
program in the Canal Zone. As a
member of the Executive Board
and the Operating Committee in
Long Range Planning, and as 1970
president of the Canal Zone Coun-
cil, Boy Scouts of America, he was
highly effective in recruiting quali-
fied personnel as leaders on both
unit and council levels. As a scouter,
he has taken special interest in all
council activities, such as the annual
cayuco race; summer camp and
other events.
In addition, Colonel Hartline
served as chairman of the Combined
Federal Campaign and was a mem-
ber of the Committee of Manage-
ment, YMCA. He also was president
of the Canal Zone Post, Society of
American Military Engineers, and
was a member of the National So-
ciety of Professional Engineers.
Mrs. Hartline has been active in
the Canal Zone Chapter of the
American Red Cross, serving as rec-
ords chairman and vice chairminan
of volunteer services. She served on
the board of directors of the Bella
Vista Children's Home and as a
member of the Interamerican
Women's Club, took part in the
club's charity drives.

Center on Corozo Street.
Dr. Teodoro Arias, president of
the council, has announced that the
main item of business will be a dis-
cussion of a proposal to discontinue
the retail laundry and drycleaning

Dr. Arias stated that a well at-
tended meeting will help council
officers to respond to Gov. David S.

PC Alcoholism Rehabilitation

Program Okayed by Governor

The Governor's Executive Com-
mitte for Youth-Family-Community
Relations has developed an alcohol-
ism rehabilitation program which
has been approved by the Governor
for implementation within the Canal
This program was established lo-
cally in compliance with the "Com-
prehensive Alcoholic Abuse and Al-
coholism Prevention, Treatment and
Rehabilitation Act of 1970." Details
of the program will be included in
booklets to be prepared in English
and Spanish and distributed to all
supervisors of the Canal organiza-
tion. Provisions of the local program
will be published in the personnel
The act provides in part that "no
person may be denied or deprived
of Federal civilian employment or a
Federal professional or other license
or right solely on the ground of prior
alcohol abuse or prior alcoholism."
Development of the program here
was made through a subcommittee
of the Executive Committee com-
posed of representatives of the
Health Bureau, Personnel Bureau,
Central Labor Union Metal Trades
Council, Alcoholics Anonymous, and
the U.S. Southern Command.
The booklet that will be distrib-
uted to supervisors includes an ex-
tensive report on alcoholism, outlin-
ing its causes, definition, and early
detection. The booklet also includes
the Canal organization's policy con-
cerning alcoholism and responsibili-
ties of the Health and Personnel
bureaus. Considerable attention is
devoted to the obligations of the
individual supervisor who is the key
person in the successful administra-
tion of an alcoholism program.
The Canal organization is not
overly concerned with the excessive
use of alcohol which results in an
isolated instance of intoxication off
the job but rather with impaired job
performance or serious misconduct
off the job, sufficiently serious to
cause a community problem.
The program will be neither an
umbrella to shield the employee

from responsibility of his uncontrol-
led drinking, nor a weapon in the
hands of supervisors to punish him
because of an illness.
One of the major points in the
program is that the Canal organ-
ization recognizes alcoholism as a
health problem, a disease that should
be treated as such. The program
attempts to identify, at the earliest
stage, employees whose drinking
habits have resulted in alcoholism
with a view to seeking their rehabili-
tation. Those with drinking prob-
lems will be provided with the same
careful consideration and offer of
assistance that presently is extended
to employees with any other illness.
No employee will have his job
security or promotion opportunities
jeopardized by his request for coun-
seling or medical referral and any
worker seeking counseling and in-
formation on a voluntary basis will
be able to do so entirely on a confi-
dential basis.
Such leave as is required for re-
habilitation will be granted to any
employee suffering from alcoholism
and who is following an approved
program of rehabilitation prescribed
bv the Health Bureau. But if an
employee does not follow an ap-
proved course of treatment follow-
ing a diagnosis of alcoholism, his
absence because of alcoholism may
be handled as a disciplinary action
The counseling and referral serv-
ices of the Canal organization also
will be available to the employee's
spouse and eligible dependents,
upon request.
The Canal Zone Mental IHealth
Center, Corgas Hospital, Coco Solo
Hospital, and the Division of Pre-
ventive Medicine are responsible for
providing to eligible employees and
their dependents medical attention
in the treatment of alcoholism.
It is the responsibility of the Per-
sonnel Bureau to assist supervisors
with regard to all personnel manage-
ment aspects of the program; to
counsel employees who show a will-

ingness to seek rehabilitation under
the program; to work with Health
Bureau officials in the granting of
leave to employees, the scheduling
of hospital and clinic visits of em-
ployees; and to ensure that appro-
priate disciplinary or adverse action
is taken in cases in which an em-
ployee does not cooperate in the
rehabilitation program.
A comprehensive training pro-
gram has been set up for supervisors.
It consists of a medical portion to
be provided by the Chief, Industrial
Health Branch, and an achninistra-
tive portion given by a representa-
tive of the Personnel Bureau.

uate work at the University of
Very enthusiastic about his pro-
fession, he says he selected it for its
broad spectrum. "In my case and in
the types of work I have performed,
I have studied and practiced hy-
draulics, structures, foundations and
soil mechanics and other facets of
engineering that constitute the day
to day challenge of my profession,"
say Len-Rios, adding that he con-
siders it a privilege to work in the
Canal's Engineering Division as it
involves working on projects with
the best engineering minds of the
United States and other countries.
Len-Rios, who joined the Engi-
neering Division in December 1970,
was a swimming instructor at Coco
Solo, Camboa, and Balboa pools
before going away to school. He
also enjoys reading, tennis and of
course swimming. During his stu-

"Your graduation means that you
have successfully completed 4 years
of hard work but you are not fin-
ished with learning," he reminded
them, adding that fast-changing
technology will require them to con-
tinue development through self-
study during their journeyman years.
The Governor noted that during
the period he has served as Lieu-

also mentioned that the participa-
tion of more Panamanians in the
program has been beneficial to
them and to the Canal.

El Ing. Felipe A. Len-Rios, naci6 en
la ciudad de La Concepci6n, Chiri-
qui, donde vivi6 hasta los 5 afios,
pero a esa edad se traslad6 con sus
padres a la ciudad de Col6n donde
vivi6 durante toda su juventud. Su
padre, Antonio Len, de origen chino,
se dedic6 por muchos afios al comer-
cio en el mercado de la ciudad
Atlantica. Su madre, Sra. Filomena
Rios de Len, es chiricana. El Ing.
Len-Rios, hizo sus studios prima-
rios y secundarios en el Colegio San
Jos6, regentado por los Hermanos
Cristianos en la ciudad de Col6n. Su
primer afio universitario lo curs6 en
la Universidad Nacional de PanamA
y luego pas6 a la Universidad de
Nebraska en Lincoln, donde se gra-
du6 de ingeniero civil. DespuBs
tom6 varias materials de postgrado en
la Universidad del Estado de Wash-
ington, en Seattle, donde residi6 y
trabaj6 durante various afios. Es
un entusiasta de su profesi6n y
consider que el Canal de Pa-
namA es el lugar ideal para que
el joven professional que desee
superarse logre culminar sus an-
helos. Len-Rios es Ingeniero de
MecAnica de Suelos y Fundaciones
en la Divisi6n de Ingenieria. Ingres6
al servicio del Canal en diciembre
de 1970, pero ya antes de que saliera
a efectuar studios en el exterior
habia prestado servicios dentro de la
familiar canalera en calidad de ins-
tructor de nataci6n en las piscinas
de Coco Solo y de Balboa, siendo
ademis administrator de la Piscina
de Balboa. Estando todavia en los
Estados Unidos, contrajo matrimo-
nio con la Sra. Janet G. de Len-Rios

de 2 afios, y Maria Elizabeth, que
tiene apenas poco mAs de un mes

su profesi6n, habla de ella con un
entusiasmo poco com6n. Dice que
escogi6 la ingenieria civil, porque
es lo que se puede llamar la mejor
plataforma para poder especializarse
en la mayor cantidad de ramas de
la ingenieria. "En mi caso especifico
y en las labores que realize, he estu-
diado y practice la ingenieria hi-
draulica, ingenieria de estructuras,
de fundaciones, de mecinica de sue-
los y otras muchas facetas, que dia a
dia constituyen un reto para que me
supere en mi profesi6n. Tambi6n
consider que trabajar en la Divisi6n
de Ingenieria en el Canal de Pana-
ma es un raro privilegio, pues en
muchos proyectos trabajamos junto
con profesores de grandes universi-
dades de Estados Unidos y con mu-
chos de los mejores ingenieros que
ese pais tiene en estos momentss.
Hombre de familiar, dice que le en-
canta salir a pasear por el Interior
de Panama en uni6n de su esposa
y de sus hijos. Al respect dice:
"apenas mi hija cumpla 1 afio, me
voy a dar el gusto de llevar a mi
esposa a que conozca Chiriqui y
especialmente La Concepci6n, el
lugar donde naci. Estoy seguro que
yo tambi6n voy a conocer esa region,
pues hace mis de 20 afios que no
voy allA. Despu6s de mis de 11 afios
de haber estado fuera de Panama, he
encontrado cosas maravillosas". Al
Ing. Len-Rios le encantan la nata-
ci6n y el tenis y en sus afios de estu-
diante le toc6 representar a PanamA
en nataci6n, en un tomeo interna-
cional que tuvo lugar en Ojo de
Agua, Costa Rica. Su mayor deseo
lo resume asi: "Formar parte del
equipo de hombres que construyan
el Canal a nivel, si es que ese pro-
yecto Ilega a ser una realidad".

Tratamiento y Rehabilitaci6n de los
casos de alcoholism, promulgada
en 1970. Los detalles de este progra-
ma seran incluidos en un folleto
que sera preparado en espafiol e
ingl6s y distribuido a todos los su-
pervisores de la empresa del Canal,
mientras que los mandates del pro-
grama local serin publicados en el
Manual de Personal.
No CausarA Perjuicios
La ley establece en parte que "a
ninguna persona se le negarA o pri-
var, de empleo civil Federal o del
derecho a una Licencia Federal o
de otra clase, por el s61o hecho de
haber abusado del alcohol anterior-
mente o de haber sido alcoh6lico".
Localmente, el program fue de-
sarrollado por un subcomit6 del
Comit6 Ejecutivo compuesto por
representantes de la Direcci6n de

sajeros choc6 contra una de sus alas,
en el aeropuerto de Tokio. El copi-
loto del avi6n sufri6 lesiones series.
En el moment del cheque, estaba
subiendo las escaleras del avi6n y

guno de los pasajeros del 6mnibus
result lesionado, pero el avi6n su-
fri6 averias de consideraci6n que

ra Combatir el Alcoholismo

Salubridad, de Personal, del Con-
sejo Central del Sindicato de Tra-
bajadores Mitalhrgicos, de Alco-
h6licos An6nimos y del Comando
Sur de Estados Unidos.
El folleto que sera distribuido
a los supervisors incluye un exten-
so informed sobre el alcoholism, de-
tallando sus causes, su definici6n,
su temprana detecei6n, la political
del Canal respect al alcoholism
y la responsabilidad al respect de
las direcciones de Salubridad y de
Personal. Se dedica considerable
atenci6n a las obligaciones de los
supervisors, quienes son claves en
lograr que este sea un program
antialcoh6lico de exito.
Bueno Para la Comunidad
La empresa del Canal no s61o
esti preocupada per el excesivo
uso del alcohol, en 1o que respect
a casos aislados de embriaguez fue-
ra de las horas de trabajo, sino mas
bien porque constitute un obstAculo
al correct desempefio de los debe-
res del trabajador o causa mala con-
ducta seria fuera del trabajo, lo
suficientemente como para original
problems en la comtmidad.
Este program no se convertirA
en algo que proteja al empleado
que no cumple con sus responsa-
bilidades debido a que bebe sin
control, ni tampoco se volvert un
arma en las manos de sus super-
visores para que 1o castiguen por
lo que constitute una enfermedad.
Uno de los puntos mas intere-
santes del program es que la em-
presa del Canal reconoce que el
alcoholism es un problema de
salubridad, una enfermedad que
debe ser tratada como tal. El pro-
grama trata de identificar, lo mis
pronto possible, a los empleados
cuyos hibitos de bebida los hayan
Ilevado al alcoholism, con el fin
de buscar su rehabilitaci6n. A aque-
Ilos empleados que tengan proble-
inas con la bebida se les brindarai
la misma consideraci6n y ayuda
que actualmente se les brinda a los
empleados que sufren de cual-
quiera otra enfermedad.
Ningin empleado pondri en pe-
ligro la seguridad de su trabajo o sus

oportunidades de ascenso por soli-
citar consejo o asistencia medical.
Ademris, todo empleado que busque
consejo e informaci6n, voluntaria-
mente, podrA hacerlo de una manera
completamente confidential.
Sc Dar:in Facilidades
Se otorgart los permisos necesa-
rios de faltar al trabajo a cualquier
empleado, que sufra de alcoholism
y que este cumpliendo con un pro-
grama de rehabilitaci6n prescrito
por la Direcci6n de Salubridad.
Pero si el empleado no se somete
a un curso aprobado de tratamiento,
luego de que sea diagnosticado
como un caso de alcoholism, sus
ausencias debido a dicho estado
se tratarin como casos en los
que se deber-in tomar medidas

atenci6n mdcica de la empresa del

El Club Juventud Francesa

Homenajeara a S. Mauge

El Profesor Jocelyn W. Barrowes, director de la Es-
cuela Primaria de Rainbow City, dirige a los integrantes
del coro de la escuela en un interesante experiment
pedag6gico. Los alumnos que ademAs forman el Club
Drfmatico de Pequefios Actores, estAn declamando al
unisono el famoso Mensaje de Gettysburg del Presi-
dente Abraham Lincoln, en preparaci6n a las celebra-
ciones que tuvieron lugar en dicha escuela con motivo
de la celebraci6n del Dia de la Independencia de los

Estados Unidos. La lectura a coro, por los alumnos del
Club Drimatico es una actividad regular en su plan
de studios y los ayuda a mejorar su pronunciaci6n,
su enunciaci6n y a una mejor comunicaci6n. Las mis-
caras y capas que utilizan sirven, ademis de ofrecer
un efecto teatral, para disminuir el concept de indivi-
dualidad de cada lector con el fin de dramatizar la
unidad del coro.

El sibado 24 de julio tendrA lu-
gar una cena bailable, en el Break-
ers Club de Coco Solo, durante la
eual so entregari un pergamino ho-
norifico a Satu-nin C. Maug6, em-
pleado de la Divisi6n de Escuelas
de la: Zona del Cuial.
El punto culninante de dicho
acto, que se iniciara a las 8 p.m. y
que sere amenizado por la Orques-
ta de Willie Moro, senr la entr-cga
del pergamino que serit hecha por
el Honorable C6nsul de Francia en
la ciudad de Col6n, George Mercier.
El orador principal seri el cono-
cido lidcr communal del sector Atlin-
tico, Wilfred Barrow.
Los motives por los cuales los
panamneios de ascnendenia francesa
que integrlan el Club Juventud
Francesa de la ciudad de Col6n ha
decidido ofrecor este homenaje a
Mauge son multiples. Seg6n dice
la resoluci6n, Maug6, por su pre-
paraci6n intellectual, (que culmin6
en la Zona del Canal cuando se
gradu6 en el Primer Ciclo de Gatin
y luego en la Escuela Normal de
La Boca, redondeando su educa-
ci6n superior localmente en la Pre-
paratoria de Universidad de La
Boca. Sigue diciendo la nota de la
Juventud Francesa que Maug6 si-
gui6 studios superiores en la Uni-
\ersidad de la Zona del Canal, en
la Universidad de La Florida, en la
Universidad Nacional de Panam;i

y en la Universidad IHoward de la
ciudad de Washington, D.C., con
lo cual constitute un ejemplo para
los j6venes estudiosos de PanamA.
Otro de los motives por los cua-
les se le rinde ese homenaje es su
gran actuaci6n en favor de las cla-
scs trabajadoras locales que ha
sido reconocida internacionalmente.
Tainbicn sc reficre la nota del Club
Juventud Francesa al hecho de que
cl padre de Mauge, Theodore Rend
Maugi, fue la primera persona que
cnsefi6 frances en el local de la
Sociedad Francesa de Col6n.
Durante el homenaje, tambien se
entregari un ramillete de orquideas
a la esposa de Maug6, Sra. Gladys
Wright de Maug6, quien tambidn
es empleada de la Divisi6n de Es-
cuclas de la Zona del Canal.
Los boletos para este event so-
cial que se perfila come un tremen-
do 6xito tienon on valor de $5 por
persona y se pueden conseguir con
los siguientes miembros del Club
Juventud Francesa de Col6n: Fdlix
Modestin, telcfono 3-2538; Austin

cap, Col6n 7-4806; Rcn6 Agnoly,

A la mayoria de la gente no le
import sufrir en silencio, si todo
el mundo lo sabe.
