Barca, Jr., Chief of the Locks Division. Bunker spent 6 days on the Isthmus
in connection with treaty negotiations between the United States and
the Republic of Panama.

Brayton Named

Deputy Director,

T&T Bureau
Donald R. Brayton, Manager of
the Panama Railroad, has been
appointed Deputy Director of the
Transportation and Terminals Bu-
reau replacing Norman E. Demers
who departed the Isthmus to make
his retirement home in the United
States. Brayton's appointment be-
comes effective December 30.
A second generation resident of
the Canal Zone, where his father
was employed in the former Com-
missary Division, Brayton was born
in the old Colon Hospital and has
spent most of his life on the At-
lantic side of the Isthmus. He
attended Canal Zone schools and
after graduating from Cristobal
High School he went to Texas
University at Austin.
Brayton was first employed by
the Panama Canal in 1939 as a
clerk in the Cristobal Yard Office
of the Panama Railroad. Going up
the ladder of promotions always in
the service of the Panama Railroad,
Brayton was a train collector, sta-
tion agent, conductor, yard master,
supervisory railroad transportation
specialist and acting manager on
various occasions before he was
appointed manager of the railroad
in 1962. During his Panama Rail-
road career he attended Civil Serv-
ice Commission seminars and insti-
tutes in Washington, D.C., and
Berkeley, Calif.
Brayton was presented an Out-
standing Performance Award with
a quality step increase recently in
recognition of his work in putting
the Panama Railroad on a sound
operating and financial basis while
performing near miracles in im-
proving safety standards of the

Corrigan To Head

Marketing Branch
John P. Corrigan III, Merchan-
dise Management Officer (House-
wares), has been promoted to the
position of Superintendent, Market-
ing Branch, succeeding Norman B.
Davidson, who is retiring after
more than 31 years of service with
the Canal organization.
A third generation employee of
the Panama Canal, Corrigan was
born at the old Ancon Hospital and
attended Canal Zone schools. Both
grandfathers were construction era
employees-John P. Corrigan was
a sanitation inspector for the Canal
Commission and Charles Henter
was a machinist. Corrigan's father,
John P., Jr., who was a stevedore
foreman for the Terminals Division
was born in La Boca and his
mother, in Gorgona.
After he was graduated from
Balboa High School in 1954, he
attended Canal Zone College for
1 year and then went to the Uni-
versity of Miami, where he was
graduated in 1958 with a major in
marketing. He also did graduate
work in economics at the Univer-
sity of Florida at Gainesville.
Upon graduation, Corrigan re-
turned to the Canal Zone and was
employed for 2 years in the grad-
uate intern program of the Supply
Division. He then served 2 years in
the armed forces with assignments
in automatic data processing in
Korea and at Walter Reed Medical
Center, returning to the Supply
Division where he was placed in
charge of the dry goods section of
the Mount Hope Warehouse. After
working as relief store manager on
the Atlantic side, he was promoted
to buyer in 1963, progressing to
the position of Merchandise Man-
agement Officer in 1969.
Corrigan is married to the former
Gloria Ely also of the Canal Zone
and they have four children, a son
and three daughters, all in Canal
Zone schools.

U.S. Ambassador at Large and
Special Representative for Canal
Treaty Negotiations Ellsworth
Bunker last week assured represen-
tatives of employee groups on the
Isthmus that the interests of the
employees are being given careful
attention in the treaty negotiations
with Panama.
The newly appointed chief U.S.
negotiator met with U.S. and Latin
American Civic Council Represen-
tatives and with labor represen-
tatives in the Canal Zone on No-
vember 27 to explain the purpose
of his visit and to exchange views
with these groups on the subject
of treaty negotiations.
In his opening statement at

If One's Busy

Try the Other
If you have been frustrated by a
busy signal every time you have
tried to call the main office of the
Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning
Branch, take heart. A second num-
ber has been added.
Now you can call the old num-
ber, 52-3513 or the new one, which
is 52-3545.

in your house?

each meeting, Ambassador Bunker
indicated that he had come to
reacquaint himself with Panama.
In response to representatives
who questioned the impact that
agreements reached in the treaty
negotiations might have on employ-
ees, both U.S. and Panamanian,
Ambassador Bunker repeatedly
stressed that the interests of the
United States and the employee
would be taken into full account.
Ambassador Bunker left the Isth-
mus last Sunday, ending his 6-day
visit during which he conferred
with Panamanian officials including
President Demetrio Lakas, General
Omar Torrijos, and Foreign Minis-
Ster Juan A. Tack.
Following is the text of Ambas-
sador Bunker's statement to the
Civic Council representatives and
labor groups:
"I am thankful for the oppor-
tunity to be here today and to
share several thoughts with you.
As I said at the airport upon my
arrival Monday evening, almost a
decade has passed since I last had
occasion to be directly involved in
relations between our two coun-
tries. Much has transpired. On this
visit I come to reacquaint myself
with Panama. It is my hope that
Foreign Minister Tack and I can
initiate a new dialogue that will
result in the promptest possible
negotiations of a new and modern
treaty arrangement. Such an ar-
rangement will require accommo-
dation, flexibility, and mutual trust
on both sides.
"In the exchanges between us,
our objective will be to reach an
agreement that satisfies as many
of Panama's aspirations as possible
and at the same time protects the
real interests of the United States.

U.S. Ambassador at Large and Special Representative
for Canal Treaty Negotiations Ellsworth Bunker, at
the head of the conference table, meets with represen-
tative of labor unions in the Canal Zone in the Gov-
ernor's Board Room at Balboa Heights. Bunker, who
reassured the labor leaders that employees rights will

These interests are in the continued
operation and defense of the Canal
for an extended period, and I assure
you that this requires protection of
the interests of our employees.
"Since the task of operating the
Canal system will remain basically
the same, many jobs will remain
unaffected by the treaty. There are
no plans to reduce wage rates for
any position. I would like to repeat
here what Governor Parker has
already told you, because I think
we are of one mind on this matter:
Some land areas presently in the
Canal Zone but not required for
operation or defense will be trans-
ferred to Panama and Panama will,
over a period of years, assume re-
sponsibility for a number of go'-
ernmental and most commercial
functions in the Zone. It is also
expected that the United States
and its citizens will continue their
involvement with the operation
and defense of the Canal under a
full range of necessary right' se
forth in the treaty.
"We certainly cannot, .at this
point, predict the exact nature ofL
the final treaty to be negotiated r
for that matter, when a new treat :y
might come into effect. Yo, w:1
hear many rumors about the ,ego-
tiations. I would hope that you
recognize that they are rumors, not
authoritative statements of what
the United States proposes to do.
Be assured that the U.S. Govern-
ment is giving careful attention
both to the interests of the United
States and of its employees in
seeking an improvement in our
treaty relationship with Panama.
I will do everything possible ;)
keep you informed as matt&s
progress, and I am sure Governor
Parker will do the same."

tion that permits prompt unloading.
Though the Terminals Division
attempts to discharge cargo as ex-
peditiously as possible, occasionally
it is necessary to first discharge
other cargo. A consignee who
travels to Cristobal without first
checking by telephone to get an
approximate discharge time, may
find on arrival that his automobile
will not be off the ship for several
hours or, in some extreme cases,
not until the following work shift.

kWh. The washing machine uses 103 kWh a year.
The greedy dryer demands 10 times that much. So
assert yourself. Let the "family" know who's boss.
Ignore the color TV except when there is a color show
on. Use the bw set the rest of the time. And how about
letting the dryer know that the soon-to-arrive dry
season sun and breeze gets clothes whiter and brighter
than it does. Start thinking kilowatts and soon you'll be
running those temperamental gadgets instead of vice
versa. But do it now. Turn .it down. Turn it out. Or
someday soon you'll do without.

year for household expenses neces-
sary for a person to be able to
accept employment.
In the case of dependent chil-
dren, this can include away-from-
home expenses such as the cost of
a nursery for preschoolers, as well
as the salary of a maid or baby
sitter. An amount not to exceed
$200 a month is allowed for one
child, $300 for two children, and
$400 for three or more. The deduc-
tion for household expenses plus
nursery school or other away-from
home child care cannot exceed a
total of $400 a month. An employee
is eligible to deduct this full amount
if total adjusted gross income is not
more than $18,000 per year. The
deduction is phased out by $1 for
every $2 that adjusted gross in-
come exceeds $18,000. Once ad-
justed gross income hits $27,600,
there's no deduction.
This deduction applies also to
expenses incurred for the care at
home of spouse or other depend-
ents, who are incapable of caring
for themselves.

Next BHS Concert

Set for December 13
The second of three performances
in "The Glory of Christmas," Bal-
boa IIigli School's 53d Annual
Christmas Program, will be pre-
sented at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, De-
cember 13, at the high school
The evening's performance, under
the direction of Director of Music
B. K. Thompson, is in two parts.
In Part I, the select chorus of
60 vocalists will render traditional
Christmas carols, and Part II
will be selections from Handel's
In the highlight of the evening,
Ana M. Cranadino will sing the alto
aria "O Thou That Tellest Good
Tidings to Zion."

Married people must file a joint
return and both, unless disabled,
must work to qualify for the deduc-
Formerly, only married couples
were subject to the limitation on
income but the new act specifies
that all taxpayers, including widows,
widowers, and the divorced are
limited to $18,000 if they are to
receive the entire deduction. In the
case of married people, their con-
bined adjusted gross incomes must
not exceed $18,000.
This deduction is classified as
"personal" and cannot be claimed
if the taxpayer takes the standard
deduction. The Revenue Service
provides Special Form 2441 to use
in figuring the deduction or one can
file a separate statement.
Since it is up to the individual to
prove he is entitled to the deduc-
tion, an employee must keep ade-
quate records. This is the only way
to make sure of being able to take
advantage of this saving in taxes.
Employees having children under
15 years old or paying someone to
care for disabled spouses or rela-
tives in their homes can realize sub-
stantial benefits from looking into
all the rules concerning declaring
these deductions on their 1973 in-
come tax return.

Hay que Estar

Alerta Contra

Los Ladrones
Se advierte a los residents de la
Zona del Canal que esta es la tem-
porada en que los delincuentes sue-
len sustraer las carteras y otras per-
tenencias, aprovechando la gran
cantidad de personas que salen de
compras y se entretienen con los
articulos propios de la Navidad.
Conviene que los residents to-
men precauciones adicionales du-
rante esta 6poca para proteger sus
pertenencias mientras estAn de
compras. Una de las medidas reco-
mendables es no dear las bolsas,
carteras y otros articulos en cual-
quier lugar, Asimismo, es conve-
niente poner los articulos compra-
dos en el bail del auto, fuera de la
vista de los ladrones, para que no
sean una tentaci6n a sus instintos.

"Puesto que la tarea de operar

continuarAn sin ser afectados por

rebajar salaries en ninguna posi-

Gobernador Parker ya les ha dicho,
debido a que creo que estamos de
acuerdo en este asunto: Algunas
ireas de terreno, situadas actual-
mente en la Zona del Canal, pero
que no son requeridas para la ope-
raci6n o la defense, serAn traspa-
sadas a Panama. PanamA asumiri,
dentro de cierto nimero de afios,
la responsabilidad por algunas fun-
ciones gubernamentales y por la
mayoria de las actividades comer-
ciales en la Zona. Tambidn se es-

ciudadanos sigan tomando parte en
la operaci6n y defense del Canal
en toda la extension de los derechos
indispensables que contempla el

no podemos predecir la naturaleza
exacta del tratado final que sera
negociado o, en lo que a esto res-
pecta, cusndo entrarA en vigor el
nuevo tratado. Ustedes escucharin
muchos rumors acerca de las nego-
ciaciones. Ojal que ustedes los re-
conozcan como rumors y no como

que Estados Unidos se propone
hacer. Tengan la seguridad de que
el Gobierno de los Estados Unidos
esta prestando cuidadosa atenci6n
tanto a los intereses de los Estados
Unidos como a los de sus emplea-
dos, al buscar una mejora en nues-
tras relaciones contractuales con

seguro que el Gobernador Parker
hari lo mismo".
