Volunteers load relief supplies for victims of the Managua earthquake
aboard the "Esso Nicaragua," which was made available by the Esso
Marine Supply Co.

Christmas celebrations were post-
poned in many Canal Zone homes
while organizations and individuals
set about collecting, sorting, and
packing more than 125 measure-
ment tons of food, clothing, and
medical supplies for the victims of
the earthquake which devastated
Managua, Nicaragua, Saturday.
Many Canal Zone teenagers spent
Christmas Eve and Christmas Day
at the Red Cross headquarters in
Ancon, where they sorted and
packed relief materials which had
been collected by various organi-
zations. Some of the youth worked
8 hours straight on Christmas Eve
and when they finished the packing
they went to Pier 18 in Balboa
where they helped put the supplies
aboard the Esso Nicaragua, which
left Christmas night for Nicaragua.
There were so many volunteers at
the ship that the cargo was loaded
in only 1z hours.
A Red Cross representative said
that never before had she seen such
an overwhelming response to an
appeal for help following a disaster.
Clothing and other supplies poured
in as a result of announcements on
SCN and the door-to-door solicita-
tions by such groups as the Boy
Scouts who received not only dona-
tions of clothing and food but
money as well.
On the Atlantic side, a Red Cross

worker, reported that many people
gathered food from their cupboards
and brought in clothing on hangers
that they had quickly removed from
their closets as soon as they heard
the announcements of what was
All the churches on the Atlantic
side made announcements to their
congregations about the need for
food and clothing and volunteers to
work with sorting and packing and
the Cristobal Woman's Club made
their headquarters available as a
collection point. Later the Catholic
Church Parish Hall in Margarita
was used as a sorting and packing
place when the supplies were
readied for shipment by boxcar to
Pier 18 for loading aboard the relief
Among the individuals who dev-
oted long hours to the effort was
Adrien M. Bouche, Jr., Marine
Traffic Controller of the Navigation
Division, who arranged with the
Railroad Division for a boxcar to
be made available in Cristobal for
bringing supplies collected on that
side to Balboa. He also contacted
all agencies and made arrangements
for delivering the materials to the
ship and helped organize the load-
ing of the cargo. Alfred Chase,
Hydrologist with the Meteorological
and Hydrographic Branch, volun-
teered to fly to Managua to help

Further guidelines have been re-
ceived by the Panama Canal orga-
nization regarding the limitations
of hiring and promotions during
the temporary freeze on civilian
hiring and on all civilian and mil-
itary promotions ordered by Pres-
ident Nixon earlier in December.
The freeze will remain in effect
until the new budget is submitted
by President Nixon to the Congress
at the end of January.
The guides are in the form of
questions and answers; some of
which are as follows:
Q. Does the' freeze cover em-
ployment of experts and consul-

with unloading operations for the
In addition to collecting food and
clothing, the Salvation Army dis-
patched its representative in San
Jose, Costa Rica, Maj. Bernard
Smith, to the scene to look over
the situation and organize volun-
teers to help set up feeding stations.
Maj. Maurice McCaw, Salvation
Army representative in Rio Abajo,
and Maj. James Bozman, Division
Commander in Panama and the
Canal Zone, were making plans to
go also.
Gorgas Hospital sent four doc-
tors to aid the victims. They were
Maj. Richard Wittaker, Maj. Rich-
ard Shaw, Capt. John Samet, and
Dr. Pedro Green.
Boy and Girl Scouts, the Curundu
Protestant Church Youth, the Amer-
ican Legion, the VFW, churches on
both sides of the Isthmus and
numerous other groups are still
working with the collecting and
packing of clothing and food as the
relief effort continues.
Both the Red Cross and the Sal-
vation Army are asking for dona-
tions of handtools such as hammers,
saws, screwdrivers, etc., as well as
nails to aid victims in rebuilding
homes or improvising shelters. They
also need needles, thread, scissors,
and other sewing supplies.
Donations may be brought to

A. Yes.
[NOTE.-This limitation supersedes
earlier guidance issued on December 14
by the Personnel Bureau that permitted
employment of experts and consultants.]
Q. Can a hiring commitment be
considered "firm" if the commit-
ment was subject to the individual
being certified by the Central Em-
ployment Office and being within
reach for appointment?
A. No. An agency is not in a
position to make a firm commit-
ment unless it has received the cer-
tificate or had been advised by an
appropriate CEO official that the
individual was being certified and
would be within reach for appoint-
ment. Likewise, an agreement to

Salvation Army headquarters in La
Boca, to the VFW office in Curun-
du, or to the Red Cross headquar-
ters in Ancon. On the Atlantic side,
donations may be delivered to the
Catholic Church Parish Hall in

1973 Softball Season

Opens on January 2
Gov. David S. Parker will for-
mally open the 1973 season of the
Pacific Softball League by throwing
out the first ball Tuesday, January 2
at 6:45 p.m. in the League Park.
There will be two five team
leagues participating in the games
this season with doubleheaders
played nightly.
A 2-week 32 team Viceroy tour-
nament and a 2-day United Fund
Tournament will be played during
the season.

No Spillway Next Week
The January 5 edition of the
SPILLWAY has been canceled
and the next edition will be
distributed January 12. The
cancellation was necessary be-
cause yesterday was declared a
non-work day due to the death
of President Harry S. Truman.
This, combined with the New
Year's holiday did not allow suf-
ficient time to prepare material.

promote an employee subject to his
being within reach is not considered
a firm commitment.
Q. Can a person serving under
a temporary promotion be given a
permanent promotion during the
A. No, unless he is covered under
one of the exceptions to the promo-
tion freeze discussed in the earlier
questions and answers.
Q. Are quality-step increases or
superior performance awards per-
missible during the freeze?
A. Yes. The freeze applies only
to hires and promotions.
Q. Can an employee serving
under a temporary appointment
have his appointment extended or
converted to a permanent appoint-
ment during the freeze period?
A. If conditions for extension are
met, temporary appointment may
be extended by the agency. A tem-
porary appointment may not, how-
ever, be converted to a permanent
appointment since this would in-
crease the permanent work force
during the freeze period.
Q. May a part-time employee
have his regular work hours in-
creased under the same type ap-
pointment during the freeze period?
A. Yes. If there is no change in
position or grade, it is permissible
to adjust the time basis on which
an employee is paid.
Q. Can agencies make commit-
ments during the freeze for a new
employee to report to duty after
the freeze ends?
A. In general, commitments may
not be made during the freeze for
an employee to report to duty after
the freeze ends.
Q. Can career program, career
ladder, or similar promotion pat-
terns be considered "prior commit-
ments" to promotions during the
A. No. Such programs do not
constitute prior commitments of
individuals to specific promotions
during the freeze period, unless
covered by a written training agree-
ment which provides for promotion
at predetermined times.

Hard Work Avoids

A Yule Tree Crisis

A Christmas tree crisis was
avoided in the Canal Zone last week
only through devotion and long

Viernes 29 de Diciembre de 1972

Contestan Interrogantes

En Torno a la
Pautas adicionales se han recibi-
do en el Istmo en relaci6n a las li-
mitaciones de la congelaci6n de los
empleos y ascensos impuesta por
el President Nixon el 11 de di-
ciembre. Las nuevas pautas se han
presentado en forma de preguntas
y respuestas, igual que lo fueron las
instrucciones anteriores sobre la
media, que fueron publicadas en
edici6n anterior del SPILLWAY. Las
nuevas pautas son las siguientes:
8Incluye la congelaci6n el em-
pleo de experts y consultores?
Respuesta: Si.
(NoTA.-Esta limitaci6n reemplaza
pauta anterior emitida por la Direcci6n de
Personal el 14 de diciembre, que permi-
tia el empleo de experts y consultores.)
dPuede considerarse "formal" una
promesa de empleo si ella depen-
dia de la certificaci6n de la Oficina
Central de Empleo para proceder
al nombramiento?
Respuesta: No. Una agencia no
puede hacer promesa formal a me-
nos que haya recibido el certificado
o haya recibido aviso de un funcio-
nario autorizado de la Oficina Cen-
tral de Empleo de que la persona
estaba siendo certificada y seria
eligible para ser nombrada. Asi
mismo, no se consider promesa for-
mal un comnromiso de ascender a
un empleado siempre y cuando est6
en el certificado de elegibles.
PPuede darsele ascenso perma-
nente a una persona favorecida con
un ascenso temporal?
Respuesta: No, a menos que est6
incluida dentro de las excepciones
indicadas en la congelaci6n de as-
censos, en las preguntas y respues-
tas previamente publicadas.
eEstan permitidos durante la con-
gelaci6n los aumentos de grades o
premios por servicio sobresaliente?
Respuesta: Si. La media se apli-
ca solamente a los empleos y as-
dPuede un empleado temporal
extender su nombramiento o ser
nombrado con caricter permanent
durante el period de congelaci6n?
Respuesta: Si las condiciones de-
mandan su extension, los nombra-
mientos temporales pueden ser ex-
tendidos por la agencia. Sin embar-
go, un nombramiento temporal no
puede ser convertido a permanent,
ya que aumentaria la fuerza laboral
permanent durante la congelaci6n.

8Puede un empleado parcial re-
cibir aumento de sus horas regula-
res de trabajo dentro de su misma
posici6n en el period de conge-
Respuesta: Si. Si no se hace cam-
bio en la posici6n o el grado, se
puede hacer un ajuste en el tiempo
de trabajo del empleado.
.Pueden las agencies hacer pro-
mesas de trabajo para que un nue-
vo empleado se report despues de
terminada la congelaci6n?
Respuesta: Por regla general, las
promesas de trabajo para que un
empleado se report despues de
terminada la congelaci6n no deben
hacerse durante este period.
8Pueden considerarse "promesas
previas" para promociones durante
la congelaci6n los programs de
carrera, escalaf6n u otros similares?
Respuesta: No. Tales programs
no constituyen promesas previas a
personas para ascensos especificos
durante el period de congelaci6n,
a menos que est6n amparados por
un acuerdo escrito que prevea las
promociones en tiempo previamen-
te establecido.

ECOLOGY WAS IN THE NEWS-In April, people were thinking
a lot about ecology in the Canal Zone. Dotting Sosa Hill are stu-
dents and teachers from Balboa High School and Balboa Elemen-
tary School who planted tree seedlings and seeds as a part of Earth
Week observances. A few days earlier, the hill was seeded by heli-
copter in an attempt to reestablish a rich growth of trees on the hill.
PREOCUPACION POR LA ECOLOGIA-En abril de 1972, la eco-
logia era la principal preocupaci6n de los residents en la Zona.
Profesores y alumnos de la Secundaria y de la Primaria de Balboa
sembraron retoiios de Arboles en el Cerro Sosa, como parte de las
actividades de la Semana de Preservaci6n del Suelo. Pocos dias
antes, se habian arrojado semillas de Arboles desde un helic6ptero,
para crear un rico manto de Arboles en dicho cerro.

STORMY WEATHER-Scenes like this were common on the Pacific side of the Canal Zone in June when a squall line
swept through with high winds and torrential rains. There were no personal injuries but trees were uprooted, debris
hurled about and electrical service was interrupted briefly. Behind the roots of the tree are the front steps leading to the
Administration Building at Balboa Heights.
TEMPESTAD-Escenas como 6sta fueron comunes en el sector Pacifico, cuando una tormenta, con fuertes vientos y llu-
vias torrenciales, pas6 en junio por aqui. Nadie result lesionado, pero fueron derribados muchos Arboles, las calls
quedaron llenas de desperdicios y se cort6 la energia el6ctrica por poco tiempo. DetrAs de las raices del Arbol se puede
ver la escalinata del Edificio de Administraci6n.


A 1972

ruary while Miraflores Locks was dewatered, these girls who work
in the offices of the Engineering and Construction Bureau were
taken on an indoctrination tour along with many other visitors who
took advantage of the outage to go to the bottom of the chambers.
febrero, mientras eran reacondicionadas las Esclusas de Miraflores,
estas empleadas de la Direcci6n de Ingenieria y Construcci6n fueron
Ilevadas en una gira de orientaci6n, junto con otros visitantes que
aprovecharon la ocasi6n para llegar al fondo de las esclusas.
