"Board With Safety" sign says it all for Safe Boarding Week. Holding
up the sign are: Capt. T. W. Gove, left, Panama Canal pilot, and J. C.
Dyer, Marine Bureau Safety Representative-Labor Liaison Officer. At

Safe Boarding Week


Plans Are Announced


Next week has been designated
as "Safe Boarding Week" as a
means of promoting safe boarding
and debarking on all vessels arriv-
ing at the Panama Canal.
Capt. D. A. Dertien, Marine
Director, has pointed out that the
observance of the week is intended
to upgrade boarding procedures
in Canal waters on a year-round
basis.
One of the main features of the
week will be inspections made of
arriving vessels by "Board With
Safety" teams operating from both
Cristobal and Balboa. The teams
will consist of assistant port cap-
tains, pilots, boarding officers,
deckhands, boatswains and steam-
ship agents. Vessels will be noti-
fied immediately of boarding facil-
ities which fail to meet existing
international and Panama Canal
safety standards. Captain Dertien
emphasizes that this phase of Safe
Boarding Week is intended to be
an educational program, not a pu-
nitive one.
The boarding teams were in-
doctrinated Wednesday by Capt.
Robert Valentine, president of the
Panama Canal Pilots Association,
at seminars held on both sides of
the Isthmus.
Through the years, pilots, deck-
hands and other Canal employees,
plus persons not employed by the
waterway, have been injured while
boarding and debarking from ves-
sels arriving for transit. The acci-
dents have resulted in lost time
and money in addition to the men-
tal and physical anguish involved.
From time to time, the Marine
Director has issued notices to
shipping agents, owners and oper-
ators on matters related to safe
boarding, such as pilot ladders and
hoists. In March, for example, spe-
cial attention was paid to an Inter-
Governmental Maritime Consultive
Organization rule stating that where
the distance to the point of access
is more than 30 feet from the
waterline, access from the pilot

La Leche Group To Meet
The Atlantic side La Leche
Group will meet at 10 a.m.,
May 14, for a discussion on nutri-
tion and weaning at 247-B Coco

babies are invited. For further in-
formation, call 43-6747 or 64-3521
in Panama City.


ladder to the ship shall be by
means of an accommodation ladder
or other equally safe and con-
venient means.
Fliers on how to rig boarding
ladders will be made a permanent
part of boarding papers submitted
to vessels entering Canal waters
as part of the continuing campaign
to improve boarding and debark-
ing throughout the year.


The Personnel Bureau cannot
qualify employees for reassignment
or promotion based on relief duties
if those details have not been
documented in their official per-
sonnel folders.
Employees may be detailed to
perform other than their normal
duties for a variety of reasons: to
meet emergencies caused by ab-
normal workload; to fill positions
during unanticipated absences of
regular incumbents; or to test an
employee before formal assign-
ment to a higher grade position or
to a different line of work.
Regardless of the reason for the
detail, undocumented relief duties
will contribute to neither promo-
tion nor reassignment.
A detail in excess of 30 days
needs the prior written approval of
personnel authorities and is, there-
fore, duly documented in an em-
ployee's personnel folder.
Details for less than 30 days are
approved by supervisors orally or
in writing.
If approved in writing, a copy
of the detail assignment should be
forwarded to the Personnel Rec-
ords-Administrative Branch for in-
clusion in the employee's personnel
folder.

Manpower Dollars Can Be Stretched


Ways of reducing personnel costs
through sound management prac-
tices instead of harsh across-the
board cuts are discussed in an
article by Robert E. Hampton,
Chairman of the U.S. Civil Serv-
ice Commission, in an article ap-
pearing in the January-March issue
of the Civil Service Journal.
The article, entitled "Stretching
the Manpower Dollar," is aimed at
Federal managers and urges agency
heads to examine specific areas of
their operations for potential sav-
ings in manpower costs.


Hampton points out that infla-
tion has been steadily driving up
personnel costs because of the sub-
stantial pay increases required by
law each year to maintain com-
parability with the private sector.
Civilian personnel costs including
postal salaries, he says, are $35.5
billion in fiscal 1975 and will in-
crease to $38.9 billion in fiscal
1976.

Vacancies, Promotions
The article urges managers to
direct special attention to scrutiniz-


ing vacancies, improving hiring
practices, monitoring promotions,
organizational improvements, train-
ing and using incentive awards
more effectively to encourage cost
reduction.
In scrutinizing vacancies, Hamp-
ton says managers should fill only
those vacancies that are important
and consider abolishing the job if
essential duties can be redistrib-
uted among other positions. If the
job cannot be abolished he rec-
ommends reengineering the posi-

Gift of the Panama Canal Museum


The program annually seeks to
recognize six outstanding career
women in Federal Service, high-
lighting the important work they
are doing in executive, profes-
sional, scientific and technical posi-
tions.
Nominated by Acting Gov. Rich-
ard L. Hunt were Renata M. S.
Arboleda, M.D., Patricia M. Flo-
res, Willie K. Friar, Mary V.
Graham, M.D. and Frances F.
Sampsell.
Improved Health Care
Dr. Arboleda, Director of the
Canal Zone Mental Health Center,
was nominated for her vigorous
devotion and profound ser.�i , to
the hospital which has result`
improved health care for the Can,'
Zone community. She is credited
with stimulating training asd edu-
cation of psychiatric residents,
social workers and nurses from the
Republic of Panama, tutoring grad-
uate psychiatrists and neurologists
for their specialty board exams,
and her contributions to such vital
Canal Zone committees as child
and infant protection, Aid to
Handicapped, Federally Employed
Women, Equal Opportunity, and
Alcohol and Drug Abuse Preven-
tion and Treatment.
Studied in Germany
Dr. Arboleda received her doc-
tor of medicine degree from the
University of Munich, Germany,
in 1954. She entered the field of
psychiatry in 1956 and, in 1963,
completed post graduate work in
psychosomatic medicine at Temple
University, Philadelphia. She is a
Diplomate of the American Board
of Psychiatry and Neurology.
Mrs. Flores, Administrative Offi-
cer and Personnel Advisor of the
Maintenance Division, was nomi-
nated for an outstanding record of
achievements in her day-to-day
performance of many varied duties.
Special mention was made of her
outstanding leadership of the 21
employees under her supervision-
"an unusual challenge as the group
consists of a mixture of two nation-
alities, two native languages, 10
females, 11 males, and a mixture
of the white, black, and brown
races.
EEO Counselor
In addition, she was cited for
her outstanding service as an equal
employment opportunity counselor
for the past 5 years. Her accom-
plishments are reflected in the fact
that she has been recommended
by six different supervisors for the
eight performance awards she has
received since 1965.
Ms. Friar, editor of the PAN-
AMA CANAL REVIEW, received a
nomination for improving the qual-
ity of the magazine to a level com-
parable to the finest publications
of its kind. She has had the addi-
tional responsibilities of handling
all details of the "Special Edition-
Panama," a 68-page publication.
Ms. Friar designed a special card
and envelope for it and handled
the advertising campaign.

Retail Policies Explained Scouts to Hold
C!". A"* Ik4A _L


Q. What recourse does the cus-
tomer have when the clerk is dis-
courteous or gives poor service in
general?
A. Customers can be of great
assistance both to themselves and
to management by immediately
reporting to supervisors at that
unit any instances of discourteous
treatment or poor service by their
employees. The customer should
report the name of the employee
and the details of the incident. This
enables management to take timely
remedial action as effectively as
possible. Frequently, we hear of
these things well after the fact
and, in the absence of specifics,
there is then little we can do of
a corrective nature. Actually, Sup-
ply Division management wel-
comes timely comments on any
matter regarding our service oper-
ations, both the "bad news" and
the "good news." Regarding the
latter, we also would appreciate
hearing about any instances when
the customer has received unusual-
ly good service or assistance from
our employee.
Q. Why do we occasionally find
a supermarket item with more
than one price marked on it?
A. This may be the most fre-
quent question we are asked. Al-
though it is common practice in
U.S. supermarkets to literally be
"one step ahead" of the shopper
and price change all items on the
shelves at any time of the day that
the price change is received at the
store, such is not the practice here.
()Our policy regarding price
changes for grocery and cold stor-
ac items is that whenever there
is a price increase, the merchan-
dise on the shelves normally is sold
at the lower old price until the
shelf stock is depleted. wheneverr
there is a price decrease, shelf
stock is plh sically repriced accord-
ingly. However, for all price
changes, increases and decreases,
warehoused stock is remarked and
sold at the new price. There are
onil two basic exceptions to this.
A few fast-moving items are not
physically price remarked on the
shelves and these items will be
sold at the new price on the effec-
tive date of the price change.
Also, any extremely slow moving
items on unit shelves are remarked
at the new price. The general rule
for drygoods and houseware items


carried in supermarkets is that
shelf prices are not changed on
small value, large volume items
that are already price marked.
However, prices on shelf stocks
are remarked on all high value and
slow moving items.
Special comment should be made
about items that are prepriced
by the manufacturer. Excluding
publications, some prepriced items
are sold at that price, others are
marked and sold at a lower price.
Therefore, on prepriced merchan-
dise there may be instances of two
prices being shown on the item,
but the lower price prevails. At
all other times, only one price
should appear on the shelf item.
If a can or package, not prepriced
by the manufacturer, is found
with two prices shown, a clerical
error has been made and it is our
policy that the customer be
charged only the lower of the
prices, even if it is the incorrect
price.
Finally, if you see an employee
physically remarking a supennar-
ket shelf item, it is because either
there has been a price decrease, or
it is a slow moving item, or a
clerical error is being corrected.
Q. How are operating schedules
(days and hours) established for
stores, theaters, gas stations and
other service operations?
A. In setting such schedules,
many factors must be considered:
manpower ceiling and staffing
levels available, degree of super-
vision and security required, poten-
tial customer volume, amount of
operating expenses to be incurred,
etc. Within such parameters of
consideration, schedules are set
only after coordination with civic
council representatives from the
communities involved. Any sub-
sequent changes also are civic
council coordinated.

The Boy Scouts of America, Per-
las District, composed of Pacific
side troops, will sponsor the third
annual Canal Zone Boy Scout First
Aid Meet, May 17, at Albrook

Participants will compete in 10
separate areas starting with an in-
spection of the patrol first aid kit,
individual uniforms and patrol
flag. The other nine will test the
scouts' proficiency in such areas of
first aid as treatment of shock,
burns and multiple injuries.
The competition also was de-
signed to allow boys to familiarize
themselves with first aid techniques
before beginning their outdoor
summer activities.
The meet, to be held in Hangar

Hospital, Nurses Weeks


Will Be Observed Here


National Hospital Week and Na-
tional Nurses Week will be ob-
served in the Canal Zone from
May 11 through May 17.
"A Constant Concern for a
Healthy Community" is the theme
of National Hospital Week-1975.
During the week, Canal Zone
hospitals will join 7,000 hospitals
in the United States to contribute
to the American Hospital Associa-
tion's effort to create a public
awareness of the hospital's role in
the community.
The hospital is a community in-
stitution and a community resource
concerned as much with keeping
people well as with restoring
health.
Not only is health care taking
new preventive directions today
but the hospital is more and more
becoming the very center of the
community's health.
A hospital, like an individual,
builds its life on relationships. The
relationship of the hospital with

Next in Ascent of Man
Series Is Scheduled
Two films in the Ascent of Man
series will be presented at 7 p.m.,
tomorrow, in the Cristobal Little
Theatre. The titles are "Knowl-
edge or Certainty" and "Genera-
tion Upon Generation." The pub-
lic is invited free of charge and
refreshments will be on sale.
The last of the series, "The
Long Childhood," will be pre-
sented May 17 with a preview of
the Allister Cooke "America"
series. It is hoped that the "Amer-
ica" series will be presented on
the Atlantic side later.

Bowlers to Meet
Officers and board members will
be elected at the annual meeting
of the Panama Canal Zone Wom-
en's Bowling Association, which
begins at 12 noon tomorrow, at the
Fort Clayton NCO Club.

the community of which it is a
part is a vital factor in its success
or failure as a part of the Nation's
health care system.
By working to develop new
methods of delivering quality care,
establishing patient education pro-
grams, quality assurance proce-
dures and cost containment tech-
niques, hospitals and their staffs
strive to assure that the needed
care is available at a reasonable
cost when someone is ill.
Coco Solo Hospital and Gorgas
Hospital have expressed concern
for the community by responding
to the community's health care
needs-by growing, developing,
evolving far beyond their initial
designation as a "center for dying."
Today, the community hospital
is a center for life. It is a center
for those who may need care there.
Beyond this, it is a center for
bolstering the social and economic
life of the community itself.
The social and economic well-
being of our community is depend-
ent on the health of our residents.
By helping to keep us well and
helping us to recover when we are
sick, the hospital contributes sig-
nificantly to the economic health
of our community life.
National Nurses' Week activities
will begin Sunday morning with
religious activities in various Canal
Zone churches commemorating
Nurses' Week, Mother's Day and
International Women's Year.
Monday evening, prospective
nurses and medical students from
Balboa and Paraiso high schools
will meet at Balboa High School
from 7 to 8:30 p.m. to see a film
and hear talks on the various pro-
grams and fields of nursing.
During an afternoon tea at the
home of Health Bureau Director
Dr. Bedford H. Berrey and Mrs.
Berrey, the AFGE Canal Zone
Nurses Lodge 1805 will present a
scholarship to a prospective nurs-
ing student.
Other activities during the week
include tours of the Social Security
Hospital and Gorgas Hospital, an
open house at the Balboa and
Paraiso Community Health centers
and a tea on the Atlantic side.
On Friday, officers and members
of the Nurses' Lodge will present
toys to the Gorgas Hospital pediat-
ric ward.


Tryouts for the Theatre Guild's
next play, "The Gingerbread
Lady," will be held at 7 p.m.,
May 12 and 13 at the guild.
This play by Neil Simon will be
directed by Walter Lenneville, who
has been active in many phases of
Canal Zone theatre for the past 10
years. Lenneville's latest accom-
plishments were portraying Giles
Cory in "The Crucible" at Surfside
Theatre and stage manager for
the current Theatre Guild play,
"Prisoner on Second Avenue."
The show will be produced by
Carol and Jerry Hall, who since
their appearance in last summer's
"Fiddler," have been doing make-
up as a team at the Theatre Guild.
"The Gingerbread Lady" deals
with the problems of an alcoholic,
night club singer, divorcee and
her 17-year-old daughter.
Parts are available for three
females: Evy, the main character,
the alcoholic who at the beginning
of the play is just returning from
a "drying out"; Polly, her 17-year-
old daughter; and Toby Landau,
Evy's best friend, who is a very
attractive woman in her early
forties.
Male parts available include
Jimmy, who is probably, but not
obviously, a homosexual, a failure
as an actor and Evy's only real
male friend; Lou, Evy's ex boy-
friend who returns after having
run off with a Cherokee. The third
male character is that of a Span-
ish delivery boy, about 20.
Technical help is also needed.
For more information call Lenne-
ville at 52-6886 or Jerry or Carol
Hall at 83-3323.


A formal ribbon-cutting cere-
mony recently signaled the open-
ing of the Terminals Division's
new First Aid station, which is
located at Building 1020, Cris-
tobal piers.
Doing the honors with a pair
of scissors was Mrs. Karen M.

Transportation and Terminals Di-
rector; Frank A. Castles, Civil
Affairs Director; Police Chief Wil-
liam F. Kessler; Jack M. Ruoff,
Manager, Marine Bunkering Divi-
sion; and Police Sgt. Ronald A.
Johansson, who suggested the con-
struction of a first aid station.

A full-scale replica of a famous sailing ship transits the Panama Canal
for the second time this year. This time, it is the recreated Pilgrim-the
twin-masted, square-rigged brig that Richard Henry Dana sailed on from
Boston to California in 1834 and then immortalized in his book "Two
Years Before the Mast." Designed from original specifications, construc-
tion was begun in Denmark in 1945 when the original skipper, Capt.
Raymond E. Wallace had the idea of recreating the famous brig after
he discovered the hull in Denmark. Most of the construction was done
in a shipyard in Setubal, Portugal, which specializes in wooden ship-
crafting. When political problems in Portugal threatened the end of the
project, it was moved to Miami where construction was completed and
the brig set sail in March. Capt. Iarold O. Fowler and his crew of 21,
including six women, are sailing to California where the owners, B.J.W.
Enterprises plan to open the ship to the public as a floating museum.

Establishment of the First Aid
station was approved by Gov.
David S. Parker in Fiscal Year
1974 and construction was begun
by the Maintenance Division last
year.
Approximately 1,150 employees
of the Transportation and Ter-
minals Bureau and 500 from the
Marine Bureau will have use of
the station. Others, such as Police
and Customs employees, will be
treated on an emergency basis.
The new First Aid station is ex-
pected to reduce lost time injuries,
increase productive hours of per-
sonnel, prevent infections, furnish
up-to-date personnel health rec-
ords, provide early detection of
heart, audio, vision and other
physical problems and assist in
annual physical examinations.
The unit also will assist in the
alcoholic rehabilitation program.
Under normal conditions, injured
employees requiring first aid only
will be treated and be back on the
job in less than half the time
fonnerly required for treatment at
Coco Solo Hospital.

THE PANAMA CANAL SPILLWAY


May 9, 1975


Reduce Personnel Costs
(Continued from p. 1)


tion and establishing it at a lower
grade, retaining only those duties
which are absolutely essential to
the function. Another suggested
option is to establish a develop-
mental position one or more grades
below the previous level.
On the subject of improved
hiring, Hampton points out that
when the general employment
market is tight, the number and
quality of applicants for Federal
jobs increases in proportion. Appli-
cations are now at an all time high,
he says, and this is a good time to
reexamine and adjust career intake
programs, since the availability of
highly qualified applicants is
greater, even for lower grade posi-
tions. He also urges that use of
part-time employees should be ex-
plored, both to take care of peak
workloads and for on-going situa-
tions where less than a full-time
worker is needed.
Freezing Promotions
In the area of promotions
Hampton says: "Few Management
actions are more damaging to em-
ployee morale and productivity
than freezing promotions. But it
just makes good management sense
to establish policies and controls
to assure that promotions are made
only when fully justified.
"I would be the first to recom-
mend promotion career-ladder ad-
vancement for the really outstand-
ing employee; but I would be the
last to agree to automatic promo-
tion solely on the basis of time in
grade. The standard," Hampton
says, "has to be demonstrated abil-
ity for full performance at the
higher grade level, not prospective
anticipation of developing full per-
formance sometime after promo-
tion."
In discussing organizational im-
provements, Hampton points out
that in the CSC personnel man-
agement evaluations the most
common fault is "overly frag-
mented organization structure and
excessive supervisory layering,"
which causes under utilization and
oversupervision of the individual
employee and often results in mis-
classification of jobs.
Streamline Structure
He recommends streamlining the
structure of the organization by
reducing reporting levels and eli-
minating unnecessary deputy, as-
sistant, special assistant and assist-
ant-to positions.
"In our evaluations of agency
personnel management," Hampton
says, "we are going to take a
harder look at organization and
position structure, and we are re-
quiring agencies to do the same
in their own evaluations. Building
lean and effective organizations is
one of the best ways managers
have for assuring the taxpayer gets


his money's worth in Govermnent
operations."
On the subject of training,
Hampton writes: "In a budget
crunch, many managers have a
tendency to turn first to training
as a prime cost-reduction prospect.
This is unfortunate. Not that train-
ing should be exempted from cost
reduction efforts, but it should be
done with a scalpel rather than a
meat ax."
Training Course Value
Hampton deplores "training for
the sake of training" and suspects
that "we are not getting full value
from many training courses and
programs." He urges managers to
examine methods used in deter-
mining which employees are to
get what training to make certain
that proper selection practices are
being used to assure the greatest
return on training investments.
In the area of incentive awards.
Hampton points out that since its
inception, 20 years ago, the Fed-
eral Incentive Awards program has
produced over $4 billion in savings
for the Government. He urges that
increased emphasis be placed on
encouraging participation in this
program, as emphasized by Pres-
ident Ford.
In closing, Hampton's article
suggests that managers explore
their operations to identify other
possibilities for cost reduction in
addition to the ones he discussed.
He reminds them that in so doing,
they have a responsibility to work
with employees and their union
representatives under the Federal
management-labor relations pro-
gram.
"Since any efforts toward im-
proving personnel practices impact
directly or indirectly on employ-
ees, their views and concerns
should be solicited and consid-
ered," he says, pointing out that
employees and their representatives
can make significant contributions
and ideas for achieving cost re-
ductions through improved work
procedures and other personnel
practices. "Management has no
monopoly on innovativeness," he
says.


Documentation
(Continued from p. 1)
If the detail is approved orally,
it is to the employee's advantage
for the supervisor to complete a
copy of Form 39, "Relief Duty
Performed" for inclusion in the
official personnel folder.
It is generally the supervisor's
responsibility to assure that relief
work performed by his employees
is documented, but for their own
benefit employees should follow up
to make sure the documentation
has been accomplished.

Sleek, modernistic Russian hydrofoil "Kometa M" skims the water during
a demonstration at Cristobal. Canal officials, shipping representatives and
the press were introduced to the vessel during a brief run outside the
breakwater recently. The "Kometa" is 108 feet long and features aircraft-
type armchairs for 102 persons in its three passenger compartments. The
seagoing vessel is designed for use in coastal shipping within 20 miles
from the coast. She was transported by cargo ship from Odessa, Russia,
to Havana, Cuba, and from there went on her own to the Bahamas, the
United States and Central America before coming to Panama on a
promotional tour. She was scheduled to go next to Cartagena, Colombia.
Asking price is approximately $1 million. For economy minded mariners,
the manufacturer makes smaller models at lower prices.


Sharon Czarnecki and James H. Wheeler provide a
light for "Smoking Sam" during the 5-day Plan
Against Smoking held at the Canal Zone College
Auditorium last week. More than 100 people who
smoke but wish they did not enrolled for the seminar.
The program was conducted by Robert S. Folkenberg,
of Guatemala, and Dr. Frank McNiel, of Honduras,
who were invited to the Canal Zone after word-of-
mouth reports reached local voluntary health associa-
tions of the success of their non-smoking programs
throughout Central America and during a previously
unpublicized program on the Isthmus. The sympo-

El Capitan Donald A. Dertien,
Director de Marina, ha sefialado
que la observaci6n de esta semana
estai destinada a mejorar los pro-
cedimientos de abordaje en aguas
del Canal durante todo el afio.
Una de las principles caracte-
risticas de la semana sera la ins-
pecci6n que se harA de los buques
que arriben a puerto, por parte de
equipos "De Abordaje con Segu-
ridad", clue operaran tanto en Bal-

vieras. Se notificarA inmediatamen-
te a las naves sobre las instalacio-
nes de abordaje que no cumplan
con los estandares de seguridad,
tanto internacionales como del
Canal de Panami actualmente en
vigencia. El Capitin Dertien ha
hecho hincapi6 en que esta fase
de la Semana de Abordaje Seguro
tiene por objeto convertirse en un
program educativo y no punitive.
Los equipos de abordaje fueron
instruidos el mircoles per el Ca-
pittin Robert Valentine, presiden-
te de la Asociaci6n de PrActicos
del Canal de PanamA, en semina-
ries que tuvieron lugar en ambos
sectors del Istmo.
Durante anios, los prActicos, pa-

habia intentado atravesar el tap6n

cicleta terminado con 6xito a tra-
vis de esa dificil Area, atraves6 el

tos congelados, frutas enlatadas,
gasoline extra, una tienda de cam-
pafia, implementos para reparar
Ilantas, tubos para las mismas, un
permiso para utilizar la ruta del
proyecto de carretera por el Darien
y el firme prop6sito de que, esta
vez lograrian llevar a cabo su in-
tento. Comenzaron su jomada el
21 de marzo en el reci6n terminado
puente que cruza el Bayano.
Viajando sobre una trocha abier-
ta por tractores, tardaron 2 dias en
llegar al Rio Cafiazas, distant
unas 40 millas.
En la Imponente Selva
A continuaci6n, viajaron dando
saltos y'sufriendo sacudidas, sobre
unas 50 millas de camino cubierto
de grava, sufriendo gran cantidad
de reventones, daios en los tubos,
miles de picadas de garrapatas y,
despu6s de un dia lleno de des-
venturas y frustraciones, se encon-
traron al final del camino y frente
a la imponente selva.
Por un sendero de la selva lle-
garon hasta el Rio Chucunaque,
donde alquilaron una piragua y
bogaron rio abajo hasta la pobla-
ci6n de Yaviza.
Con el fin de prepararse mejor
para la parte mis ardua de la jor-
nada, Webb vol6 a la ciudad de
PanamA para conseguir mis pro-
visiones y regres6 al dia siguiente.
Para seguir su viaje, alquilaron
otra piragua y empezaron. a subir
el Rio Tuira, cuyo poco fondo y
peligrosos rapidos hicieron que
avanzaran muy penosamente. Tur-
nindose, se dedicaron a empujar la
embarcaci6n de 30 pies de largo,
pero cuando uno de los que empu-
jaban daba un resbal6n era arras-
trado por la corriente. No podia


esperar que alguien lo ayudara,
pues los demAs estaban luchando
para empujar el bote. En Boca de
Cup6, a orillas del Tuira, obtuvie-
ron un permiso de salida y des-
pues de dia y medio, en el mismo
rio cAlido y pantanoso, Ilegaron al
Rio Paya, que era un paraiso, com-
parado con el salvaje rio que aca-
ban de dejar atris. En el Paya, las
aguas eran tranquilas, profundas y
tan claras que podian ver los pieces
que nadaban debajo de la embar-
caci6n. El rio era tan estrecho que
los Arboles de ambas orillas for-
maban un arco de sombra protec-
tora sobre los navegantes. Como
a mitad de su recorrido por dicho
rio, se les unieron dos indios mis
que ayudaron a empujar la pira-
gua por los bajios.
Curiosidad Indigena
La llegada de los viajeros a
Paya, poblado indigena Cuna, fue
todo un acontecimiento. Los indios
se agruparon a la orilla del rio para
observer a Webb y a Merrill c6mo
subian en sus motocicletas el acan-
tilado de las mArgenes de la co-
rriente. Los nifios, que jamAs ha-
bian visto anteriormente un ve-
hiculo a motor, salieron huyendo
al principio, pero despu6s corrian
detris de las motocicletas. Del
otro lado del pueblo habia otro
rio que debian atravesar, despu6s
de lo cual se intemaron en. la jun-
gla y empezaron su camino hacia
la frontera con Colombia. En Palo
de las Letras se encontraron con
la selva tropical mas densa que
jamls habian visto. (Se dice que el
tronco original, colocado por las
autoridades panamefias para mar-
car la frontera, tenia un letrero al
respect y los indios, que no po-
dian leer, dieron en lamarlo "Palo
de las Letras").
Con la ayuda de un gula, mon-
tando sus motocicletas o empujan-
dolas hacia arriba o hacia abajo
de empinadas pendientes, en don-
de el estrecho sendero bordeaba
por lugares tan empinados que un
pequeno resbal6n hubiera causado
que tanto el hombre como el ve-
hiculo hubieran caido en abismos
aparentemente sin fondo, legaron
al Rio Cacarica, ya en Colombia,
al final del segundo dia.

Hacia Turbo
Desde alli, siguieron rio abajo
por 3 dias, hasta Ilegar a Turbo,
en el Golfo de UrabA, Colombia,
pasando por el tremendo pantano
del Rio Atrato, donde en ocasiones
el rio era tan estrecho que apenas
si la piragua podia pasar. El es-


pectAculo de la jungla, del pan-
tano y del rio fue quizAs la parte
mis bella y spectacular de todo
el viaie, de acuerdo con Webb y
Merrill.
Desde Turbo, siguieron en lan-
cha a lo largo de la costa del Golfo
de Uraba, en Colombia, hasta
Puerto Obaldia, primera poblaci6n
panamefia de la Costa del AtlAn-
tico. Dejando sus motocicletas al
cuidado de la biblioteca piblica
del lugar, volaron de regreso a la
ciudad de PanamA, muertos de
cansancio y preguntindose la ra-
z6n por la que habian gastado es-
fuerzos y dinero para sufrir las
frustraciones e incomodidades de
un viaje tan lleno de dificultades.
Webb ha hecho various y exten-
sos viajes por mar en embarcacio-
nes de vela y recientemente com-
plet6 un viaje de 5.000 millas de
PanamA a Hawai, en un cayuco de
dos mistiles construido en el Da-
ri6n. Pero dice que ese viaje fue
un paseo comparado con su iltima
expedici6n al Dari6n.

Ofrecen Recomendaciones Para . .


En el escrutinio de las vacantes,
dice Hampton que los administra-
dores deben Ilenar s61o las que
sean importantes y considerar la
abolicion de la posici6n si sus de-
beres esenciales pueden ser redis-
tribuidos entire otras posiciones. Si
la posici6n no puede ser abolida 01
recomienda que se restructure la
position y se cstablezca en un gra-
do menor, reteniendo solamente los
dcberes que sean absolutamente
esenciales para dicha funci6n. Otra
de las opciones que sugiere es que
se establezca un desarrollo de po-
siciones uno o mis grades por de-
bajo de los niveles anteriores.
Sobre el mejoramiento de los re-
clutamientos, Hampton sefiala que
cuando se encuentra duro el mer-
cado general de empleos, el niame-
ro y calidad de los solicitantes de
posiciones Federales aumenta pro-
porcionalmente. Las solicitudes ac-
tualmente llegan a marcas jamais
antes registradas, sigue diciendo y
esto es bueno para reexaminar y
ajustar los programs de ingreso
en posiciones de carrera, puesto
que es mayor la disponibilidad de
solicitantes altamente calificados,
a6n para las posiciones de grades
inferiores. Tambidn exhorta a que se
explore la utilizaci6n de empleados
de tiempo parcial, tanto para aten-
der periods de gran demand de


(Viene de la pdgina 1)
trabajo como para las situaciones
regulars donde se necesita algo
menos que un trabajador de tiem-
po complete.
Respecto a los ascensos, Hamp-
ton dice: "Pocas acciones adminis-
trativas causan mis dafio a la mo-
ral v productividad del empleado,
como la congelaci6n de los ascen-
sos. Pero tambi6n es buena admi-
nistracion el establecer normas y
controls que garanticen el que los
ascensos se otorguen s6lo cuando
estan plenamente justificados.
"Yo seria el primero en reco-
mendar un rapido asccnso para los
empleados realmente sobresalien-
tes; pero seria el iiltimo en reco-
mendar un ascenso automitico ba-
sado s6lo en el tiempo que se ha
pasado en el mismo grado". La re-
gla, dice Hampton, "debe ser la
habilidad demostrada de un total
dlosempeno en el nivcl mits alto y
no una anticipaci6n prospective de
que ese desempetio se desarrolle
despuds del ascenso".
Al discutir las mejoras dentro dre
la organizacion, Hampton senfala
que en las evaluaciones de perso-
nal administrative de la Comisi6n
de Servicio Civil la falla mais co-
m6n es "una estructura de un
organismo sumamente fragmnenta-
do en sii estructura y una excesiva


cantidad de niveles de supervi-
si6n", lo que causa la poca utili-
zaci6n y la demasiada supervision
de los empleados, dando por resul-
tado con frecuencia la indebida
clasificaci6n de las posiciones.
"En nuestTas evaluaciones del
personal administrativos de las
agencies", dice Hampton, "vamos
a dar una mirada mas de cerca
sobre la estructura de las agencies
y de las posiciones y estamos soli-
citando a las agencies que hagan
lo imisilo en sus evaluaciones.
