On a trial basis for approxi-
mately 2 months, starting Octo-
ber 5, the sales outlet at the Sum-
mit Gardens Nursery will be
opened to the public each Sunday
for the sale of plants and other
nursery items. Weekend visitors at
the gardens will, during the trial
period, have an opportunity to
combine their recreation visits
with the purchasing of items from
the sales outlet during the trial
Sale hours will be 8 a.m. to
11:30 a.m. and 12 to 4 p.m.

October 5 through 11 has been
designated as National Employ the
Handicapped Week. During this
period, special emphasis will be
placed on the objectives of the Pan-
ama Canal organization's program
for employment of the handi-
The Canal organization has al-
ways provided employment oppor-
tunities for handicapped persons.
Additional impetus, however, has
been given the program by Gov.
Harold R. Parfitt, who recently de-
signated 41 division chiefs or their
equivalents and the heads of inde-
pendent units as field directors for
employment of the handicapped.
In a policy statement approved
September 10, Governor Parfitt in-
tegrated the program for employ-
ment of disabled veterans with the
existing program for employment
and advancement of handicapped
individuals. This policy statement
also confirmed the appointment of
the field directors who will be
responsible for promoting the em-
ployment and advancement of all
qualified handicapped individuals
and disabled veterans within their
particular organizations.
The coordinator for the Employ-
ment of the Handicapped Program
is George A. Mercier, Chief, Spe-
cial Placement Unit of the Person-
nel Bureau. He will work closely
with the field directors to ensure

Annual CFC

Gets Off to

Quick Start

The drive for funds in the Com-
bined Federal Campaign got off to
a flying start last week with em-
ployees of the Panama Canal con-
tributing more than $154,000 by
the fourth day of the campaign.
The total goal for the Canal or-
ganization is $245,380.
In keeping with its outstanding
performances in past drives, the
Supply and Community Service
Bureau was the first Canal bureau
to go over the top. At press time,
the bureau had reached 131.8 per-
cent of its goal.
The Personnel Bureau had
achieved 104 percent of its goal.
The standings of other Canal
bureaus and units were as follows:
Staff units, 78.3 percent; Financial
Vice President, 60 percent; Engi-
neering and Construction, 50.4
percent; Transportation and Ter-
minals, 44.3 percent; Health, 29.2
percent; Civil Affairs, 23.7 percent;
and Marine, 8.7 percent.
The Combined Federal Cam-
paign, which continues through
November 5, is a once a year drive
to raise .funds to support 23 par-
ticipating agencies of the Canal
Zone United Way and five orga-
nizations of the International Serv-
ice agencies.
To make it easy to contribute
generously to these health and wel-
fare groups, all permanent civilian
employees and members of the
Armed Forces may make their con-
tributions by installments through
the popular payroll deduction plan.

a coordinated effort in the ade-
quate placement and in the ad-
vancement of the handicapped
individuals and disabled veterans.
The emphasis now being given
to the employment of handicapped
persons and disabled veterans is
the direct result of the Rehabilita-
tion Act of 1973 (P.L. 93-112) as
amended by P.L. 93-516, and the
Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjust-
ment Assistance Act of 1974 (P.L.
93-508). These laws require agen-
cies to develop and implement an
affirmative action program for the
hiring, placement and advancement
of handicapped individuals. They
also require agencies to prepare
annual reports concerning the suc-
cess of their efforts.
The Canal organization's pro-
gram also emphasizes the retention
of Canal employees who become
disabled for one position, but may
qualify for others.
The major objective is that all
groups of handicapped people be
given full consideration for em-
In this program, the handi-
capped are divided into four main
groups. These are the moderately

torcades leaving simultaneously
from the Balboa Elementary School
and the Mount Hope Fire Station.
The motorcades, consisting of

tions during the week. Residents
are invited to visit the fire station
in their community to see the
equipment available for protection
of their property and lives, and to
meet some of the men who pro-
vide this protection.
As part of the observance, Canal
Zone school teachers are conduct-
ing contests for the best stories,
posters, slogans or art work deal-
ing with the theme of fire preven-
tion. The winners and runnersup
of each room will receive a certifi-
cate of merit. In addition, this year
the first place winner in each fifth
grade will receive a special award
consisting of a Sparky Membership
Kit with official badge, ID card
and inspector's handbook. Upon
request, Sparky will pay visits
to kindergartens through second
Pamphlets and coloring books

Keep an Eye

On Small Fry,

Drivers Urged
Parents are urged to be watchful
of their small children when they
are riding as passengers in their
cars, to prevent the possibility of
an accident.
A small child riding in an auto-
mobile unrestrained and moving
about in the car can easily crawl
through an open window with disas-
trous results.
Recently, at the entrance of the
Gamboa road bridge, a small child
was seen crawling out of the rear
side window of a car just as the
green traffic light had signaled one-
way automobile traffic to enter the
bridge and the cars began to move.
The driver was oblivious to the im-
pending danger. The child maneu-
vered into a sitting position on the
open window, legs inside the mov-
ing car and the body outside, and
hanging onto the rain gutter for
support. Frantic horn-blowing from
the car behind finally alerted the
bewildered driver to the situation.
Traffic slowed and then stopped,
saving the child from possible
Drivers who carry small children
as passengers must at all times be
aware of them. Safe auto seats are
available on the market for small
children and regulation seat belts
can accommodate bigger children.
In addition to auto seats and seat
belts, instruction and enforced car
riding discipline for children are
essential parental guides.

Student Lifeguards

Compete Tomorrow

The Sixth Annual Best Canal
Zone Student Lifeguard Contest
will be held tomorrow at the Cu-
rundu Swimming Pool.
A lifeguard will be selected by
the supervisor of each of the nine
Division of Schools swimming pools
to represent his pool. This year the
representatives will be Mike Bos-
well, Balboa; Tim Streeter, Coco
Solo; Jim McIlvaine, Curundu;
Robert May, Gamboa; Jeff Fryer,
Gatun; Terril Goudie, Los Rios;
James Snider, Margarita; Florencio
Brito, Paraiso; Mabel Meza, Rain-
how City.
A battery of tests to determine
the 1975-76 best guard will eval-
uate each guard's proficiency in
such lifesaving skills as underwater
recovery, lifering throw, cross-chest
carry, shallow water carry, mouth-
to-mouth resuscitation, and me-
chanical resuscitation.
Each guard will start the com-
petition with 100 points. Judges
will deduct points for errors in
judgment, improper technique and
use of excessive time.
The judges for the competi-
tion will include Red Cross Water
Safety Instructors' Trainers, the
Drill Instructor of the Fire Divi-
sion and the Division of Schools
The name of the winner and that
of his home pool will be added to
the lists of previous winners on the
permanent traveling Best Guard
Trophy-Ring which is currently on

Julio Ferrara. A similar Lifering
Trophy will be awarded this year's
Best Guard.

iiailings to insure accuracy of dis-
tribution and delivery.
1. Use First-Class postage on
Christmas cards. Even though the
single piece rate for Third-Class is
the same as the First-Class rate,
there are still advantages in send-
ing greeting cards weighing more
than 1 ounce by First Class.
c. Use insurance, registry, cer-
tified mail, airmail, special delivery,
and special handling for protection
and reliability.
d. Enclose a slip of paper in
each parcel listing the contents and
the name and address of mailer and
addressee, in case outside wrapper
becomes detached.
e. All articles should be packed
in boxes of wood, metal, solid fiber-
board, or strong double face cor-
rugated fiberboard. (An example of
an unacceptable container is a
pasteboard shoe box.) All boxes
should be securely wrapped in
heavy paper which materially
strengthens the package. Each box
should be well tied with strong
cord. Sufficient cushioning material
should be used to prevent any rat-
tling or loosening of articles with-
in the package. Unless boxes are
tightly packed, they are likely to
he crushed. Customs Declaration,
Forms 2966 or 2976 must be com-
pleted by the sender. The declara-
tion must be complete with an
accurate description of the con-
f. Addresses must be legible and
complete, and should be prepared
by typewriter or pen and ink. The
APO or FPO numbers are the same
as the ZIP Code and must he
shown on all mail.

g. Parcels accepted for mailings
cannot exceed 70 pounds in weight
and must not exceed 100 inches in
length and girth.
h. Patrons who plan to send Bona
Fide Gifts to the United States
under the U.S. Customs regulations
which permit such gifts up to $10
in value to enter free of duty are
reminded that they must itemize
the contents and mark each pack-
age "Bona Fide Cift-Not exceed-
ing $10."
i. U.S. Customs regulations per-
mit the placing of gifts for several
individuals in one parcel and ad-
dressing the parcel to one con-
signee provided that:
(1) Each individual parcel en-
closed in the larger parcel is sepa-
rately wrapped with the name and
address of the intended recipient
and endorsed "Bona Fide Gift-Not
Exceeding $10."
(2) The larger parcel will be en-
dorsed on the address side as to the
number of Bona Fide Gifts en-
closed, each not exceeding $10. For
example: "3 Bona Fide Gifts En-
closed, Value of Each Not Ex-
ceeding $10."
i. Prohibited Articles. In addi-
tion to the articles normally pro-
hibited in the mail, matches of all
kinds and lighter fluid may not be
mailed to overseas military ad-
dresses. Cigarettes, other tobacco
products, coffee and various other
items are prohibited in parcels ad-
dressed to some military post offices.

'57 CZC Grad

Now President

Of N.J. College

Information was recently re-
ceived at the Canal Zone College
that a 1957 graduate of the Canal
Zone Junior College, Dr. Gustavo
A. Mellander, has been appointed
as the second president of the
Passaic County Community College
in Patterson, N.J. Dr. Mellander
had been serving as acting pres-
ident since last spring, following
his transfer as an administrator in
the New Jersey State Department
of Education.
After his graduation in the Canal
Zone, Dr. Mellander completed
bachelor of arts, master of arts and
doctor of philosophy degrees at
George Washington University. He
previously taught in Pembroke State
College in North Carolina, and then
was employed by a private 4-year
college in Puerto Rico prior to his
tenure in the State of New Jersey.
His doctoral dissertation was pub-
lished in book form in 1971 under
the title of The United States in
Panamanian Politics, which has
been used as a reference source for
the teaching of Latin American
Former Dean Roger C. Hackett
has written to say that Dr. Mel-
lander now joins such distinguished
alumni of the Canal Zone College
as President Demetrio B. Lakas of
the Republic of Panama and other
graduates who hold high positions
in educational institutions, govern-
inent, and industry. Dean Hackett
also added that this is Dr. Mel-
lander's second presidency, so to
speak, since he also was the pres-
ident of the Canal Zone Junior Col-
lege Student Association during his
sophomore year at the college.

Richard Johnston's students at
Balboa High School will soon have
an opportunity to observe if he
practices what he teaches.
The drama instructor, who teach-
es both introductory and advanced
courses in theatre, will himself have
a lead role in Andersonville Trial,
opening October 8 at Surfside
Now rehearsing for his portrayal
of Lt. Col. N. P.. Chipman, the
judge advocate (or prosecuting at-
torney) in the post-Civil War court-
room drama, Johnston is not at all
worried about seeing students in
the audiences at Surfside.
"I stay active in stage drama to
keep in touch with theatre," he
explains. "I wouldn't try to teach
things I can't do myself." He even
plans to spend some class time in
discussing his role with his BHS
About 10 years ago, when the
Saul Levitt play was a new arrival
on Broadway, Johnston played the
role of Sergeant Gray, one of the

tion of the drama at Amherst Col-
lege. The Chipman role is the most
recent for Johnston since he played
the lead of Sir Thomas More in
Man for All Seasons here last year.
He interprets Chipman as an
idealistic but arrogant man, whose
deep emotional involvement in the
moral issues of the case stem partly
from a burning hatred for the Con-
federate cause. Chipman projects
this bitterness onto the defendant,
Capt. Henry Wirz, commanding
officer of a prisoner-of-war camp
for Union soldiers.
Though he is now a civilian,
Johnston's life in the U.S. military
indirectly led to his being a teach-
er at Balboa High School. While a
first lieutenant at Fort Amador in
the 8th Special Forces Group from
1968-71, he met Angie Ganzer, a
Canal Zone native just graduated
from University of Oklahoma and
working at Fort Amador as well.
Later, they were married here
and returned to the United States
for 2 years. During that time Johns-
ton earned a master of arts in
teaching degree at Wayne State
University and taught high school
in Michigan.
They were happy to return to
the Canal Zone when Johnston
was hired for a teaching position
at Balboa High School.
In local amateur theatre, "Mr.
J.," as his students call him, keeps
active in both acting and directing.
He recently produced The Prisoner
of Second Avenue for the Theatre
Guild and is now working on the
Balboa High School production of
The Miracle Worker, scheduled for
performances in November. In ad-
dition, he is an active member of
the Theatre Guild Board of Gov-
In spite of acting experience in
numerous plays, Johnston still suf-
fers from actor's nervousness. Be-
fore each performance he develops
what he knows is an imaginary
sore throat, "I gobble hundreds of
cough drops during the run of a
play," he says with a smile.
As an interesting side note two
of his advanced acting students are
working with him in the Ander-
sonville Trial production. Kent Pit-
man, a senior, will play one of the
trial witnesses, and Kim Trunkle,
also a senior, is the assistant to
director I.t. Robert Teta.

In 'Andersonville Trial



October 3, 1975



A check for $835 and a Suggestion Award Certificate are presented by
Supply and Community Service Director Richard K. Erbe, right, to
Richard Koyner, manager of the Mount Hope Milk Plant, for suggesting
a more effective formulation of reconstituted milk. Koyner's suggestion
generates annual savings of approximately $26,000 while maintaining
high standards for milk production. Koyner's suggestion is the first eli-
gible for Presidential recognition whereby a letter from the President is
sent to congratulate employees who submit ideas which result in first-
year measureable benefits of $5,000 or more.

Handicapped Week

(Continued from p. 1)

capped refers to those with phys-
ical impairments which would
ordinarily impede but not preclude
them from obtaining employment
through the normal competitive
process. Their impairments are
usually substantive, stable and per-
manent. They need selective place-
ment assistance to assure full util-
ization of their talents. They must,
however, compete for their jobs.
The severely physically handi-
capped are persons with severe
handicaps that make them unable
to demonstrate adequately their
capabilities under the competitive
These include the blind, deaf,
paraplegic, quadriplegic, those suf-
fering from cerebral palsey and
other problems. These persons will
be eligible for excluded appoint-
ments (outside the competitive sys-
tem) for positions which they can
fill without endangering themselves
or others.
The mentally restored are those
who have, in the past, exhibited
behavioral problems sufficiently
severe to require special intensive
Unfortunately, those who have
received treatment for a mental or
emotional illness, even though com-
pletely recovered, often bear an
unwarranted stigma. These individ-
uals have emotional needs to be
considered but have been certified
by medical authorities as being
ready to work. They have the
ability to do a good job and a
strong desire to work. As a rule,
no special appointment procedures
are needed to place these people
since they can function as any
other person with the same in-
tellectual capacity and ability.
Thus, they must be hired through
the normal competitive process.
Mental retardation is a chronic
and lifelong condition. It is not a
disease nor a total absence of skill
or aptitude, nor does it mean the
person must be placed in an in-
stitution. Although the thought

processes of mentally retarded per-
sons are limited, they think, feel
and, except in the most profoundly
retarded cases, they can make de-
cisions. They often find satisfac-
tory employment in routine repeti-
tious jobs.
To the physically and mentally
handicapped, the right job can be
the best possible tonic. Having
some responsibility, some work to
do, earning a salary, seeing evi-
dence of acceptability in the friend-
liness of coworkers and evidence
of personal adequacy due to work
accomplished, and being a part of
the community, all help the handi-
capped to see themselves as people
worthy of respect.

Governor are as follows:

Sports Program

Age Is Lowered

The .,:l..l.,. age for the Pres-
idential Sports Award program has
been lowered from 18 to 15 years
in response to requests from
coaches, teachers, parents, teen-
agers and sports clubs.
The goal of this program is not
to make every citizen an athlete,
but to let him experience what
sports give to strengthen mental
and physical fitness. The Presiden-
tial Sports Award originated in re-
sponse to public demand for an
adult award comparable to the
Presidential Physical Fitness Award
for boys and girls ages 10 through
The qualifying standards for the
Presidential Sports Award have
been developed in cooperation with
the appropriate sports governing
bodies and coaches' associations.
The standards are designed to as-
sure regularity of participation and
an investment of time and effort
conductive to physical fitness. The
basic principle governing qualifi-
cation is 50 hours of participation,
spread over at least 50 activity
sessions, within a period of 4
months. Concessions have been
made only in sports where seasons
may be short or access to facilities
limited. In such cases, 50 hours of
activity are required but they may
be accomplished in fewer than 50
Sports through which the award
may be earned are: archery, back
packing, badminton, basketball,
biathlon, bicycling, bowling, canoe-
kayak, climbing, equitation, fenc-
ing, golf, handball, jogging, judo,
orienteering, karate, pentathlon,
racquetball, rifle, rowing, rugby,
scuba-skin, skeet-trap, soccer, soft-
ball, squash, swimming, table ten-
nis, teamhandball, tennis, volley-
ball, water skiing, and weight
Personal log books, which in-
clude the application form and the
qualifying standards for all award
sports, are available free from:
Presidential Sports Award, P.O.
Box 129, Radio City Station, New
York, N.Y. 10019.
The program operates on the
honor system. Upon completion of
the qualifying requirements, an ap-
plication form is signed and mailed
in with a $3 check or money
order to: Presidential Sports Award,
P.O. Box 1412, Annex Station,
Providence, R.I. 02904. The award
recipient gets an embroidered em-
blem, a lapel pin, and a certificate
bearing the President's signature
and seal.
The Recreation Services Office is
encouraging Canal employees and
their dependents, 15 years of age
or older, to participate in the Pres-
idential Sports Award Program.

Capt. Jack A. Waters smiles his
pleasure at receiving his unlimited
pilot's license qualifying him as a
Panama Canal Pilot. A native of
Aberdeen, Wash., Captain Waters
began his sea career as -a deck-
hand aboard tugboats on the Co-
lumbia River at the age of 12.
Before coming to the Canal in
1967 as a towboat master with the
Port Captain, Balboa, he was em-
ployed by the Alaska Barge and
Towing Co. and the Snake River
Towing Co.

Fire Prevention
(Continued from p. 1)
Fire Prevention Week serves as
a reminder to all concerning the
loss of property and life by fire
each year. Most residential fires
in the Canal Zone occur in the
kitchen and are caused by care-
less cooking or by unattended
stoves. Only through more effec-
tive fire prevention can fire losses
be reduced.
Canal Zone residents are re-
minded to dial 119 in case of fire
or emergency.

Questions, Answers
Q. As an employee, there's an
automatic withhold from my salary
for Federal income tax. Does the
Civil Service Commission with-
hold tax from annuities?
A. Yes, but the withhold is not
automatic. The Commission will
make monthly deductions for Fed-
eral income tax only at the an-

mana de la Mujer en la Zona del
Canal lleg6 a la conclusion dc que
" . la liberaci6n de la mujer, ju-
ridicamentc hablando, tiene sus ba-

nes y, por ultimo, en la aplicaci6n
de la relaci6n juridica".
El panel, integrado por la Pro-
fcsora Emma Escala, las doctors
Silvia de Rodriguez y Gloria Mo-
reno de Lopcz, y la Licenciada
Margot Hutchinson, actuando conmo
modt'radora y relatora la Licencia-

Se Celebra la Semana

De Empleo de Impedidos

Los dias comprendidos entire el
5 y el 11 de octubre han sido de-
signados como la Semana Nacional
de Empleo de los Impedidos. Du-
rante este lapso se harA especial
6nfasis en los objetivos del progra-
ma de la empresa del Canal de
Panama orientado a dar empleo a
los impedidos.
La empresa del Canal ha ofre-
cido siempre oportunidades de em-
pleo a las personas impedidas. No
obstante, el Gobernador Harold R.
Parfitt, quien recientemente nom-
br6 a los jefes de divisions o sus
equivalentes y jefes de oficinas in-
dependientes como directors en
el campo para el empleo de los im-
pedidos, ha dado especial impulse
al program.
En una declaraci6n de objetivos
aprobada el 10 de septiembre, el
Gobernador Parfitt integr6 el pro-
grama de empleo de veterans li-


la Muier
jetivo hacia la divulgaci6n de as-
pectos inportantes para la mujer
en cuanto a educaci6n, leyes, cam-
bio dc actitudes con respect a la
salud. Consider el grupo de pro-
fesionales que estos factors con-
tribuyen a que la mujer se desa-
rrolle plenamente en los aspects
social, econ6mico y politico, y que
ademis la ayudan a tomar deci-
siones sobre los problems que a
ella atanen.
Las profesionalcs coincidieron en
que la Educacion Permancnte esta
adquiriendo creciente importancia,
particulannente en la segunda mi-
tad del siglo, "ya que su concep-
ci6n y planteamiento estan referi-
dos a la formaci6n continue e in-
tegral de la persona desde que
nace hasta que muere".
Las damas participants atribu-
yeron especial importancia a los
cambios de actitudes que habrin
de operarse, tanto en el hombre
coino en la mujer, y determinaron
un papel prepondcerante al hogar y
a la educaci6n en la formacion de
estas actitudes.

Permanente de la Mujer", se desa-

tos y Servicios Comunales habia
superado sustancialmente su meta,
al registrarse aportes 131.8 por
ciento sobre la cifra prevista.

bidn habia registrado una recauda-
ci6n sobre su meta. En esta de-
pendencia se logr6 comprometer

Alfredo Isaac H., ademas de ser
diestro en el uso de la brocha gor-
da, es muy diestro en el uso del
pincel. Trahaja con el taller de
pintura en las Esclusas de Pedro
Miguel y ocasionalmente debe ir
al taller de Miraflores. Su trabajo
consist en hacer r6tulos y dibujos
para llamar la atenci6n sobre las
nedidas de seguridad entire el per-
sonal, hecho cste que interest mu-
cho a todas las secciones de la em-
presa del Canal. Ademas prepare
superficies de metal, madera y con-
creto para ser pintadas; aplica
brea anticorrosiva a las compuer-
tas de las esclusas, y hace trabajos
generals de pintura con pistola de
presi6n. Recibi6 un Certificado por
Desempeiio Sobresaliente en 1974,
cuando tuvo una actuaci6n muy
positive en el logro de un reacon-
dicionamiento de esclusas en s61o
4 dias. Nacido en Col6n, Isaac vive
en la barriada Altos de ANAP, de
Col6n. Su esposa, Margarita, es

curso pict6rico organizado por el
"Atlantic Art Set" de la Zona del
Canal. Obras suyas han sido selec-
cionadas para participar en el re-
putado concurso de pinturas Xerox.

Las Enfermedades Venereas

Las enfermedades venereas es-
tin constituy6ndose en un proble-
ma dificil de controlar sencilla-
mente porque, a pesar de la ex-
tensa publicidad que se ha hecho
sobre ellas, la mayoria de la gente
con riesgo de contraerlas descono-
ce aspects sobre estas enferme-
lades o las subestiman.
Las enfermedades venereas se
transmiten estrictamente de perso-
na a persona. El diagn6stico y tra-
tamiento son relativamente simple.
Siempre y cuando haya a mano
equipo m6dico adecuado y se
ofrezca un tratamiento convenien-
te, se para la cadena de transmi-
sion. El problemla es, entonces lo-
grar tratamiento medico adecuado
nmuy temprano en el curso de la
enfermedad para romper la cadena
antes de que ctialiquiera otTa per-
sona pucda ser infectada.

Es responsabilidad de las perso-
nas sexualmente activas asumir la
responsabilidad por su enferme-
dad, lograr el tratamiento adecua-
do y asegurarse de que la persona
o personas con que tenga relacio-
nes intimas reciban pronto y ade-
cuado tratamicento.
En las clinics de los hospitals
de la Zona del Canal se puede ob-
tener rapidamente el tratamiento
para las enfermedades venereas en
forma confidencial.
La respuesta mnis apropiada para
la enfermedad venCr-ea es el imne-
diato y especifico tratamiento del
individuo afectado y las personas
que ticnen relaci6n con l6. Para

fidencial, cl interesado debert Ila-

ca, telifonos 52-7968, 52-3529 y

la enmienda P.L. 93-516, y la Ley
de Reajuste para Ayuda a los Ve-
teranos de Vietnam de 1974 (P.L.
93-508). Estas leyes requieren de
las agencies el desarrollo e inmple-
mentaci6n de un program de ac-
ci6n sostenido para el reclutamien-
to, colocaci6n y promoci6n de in-
dividuos incapacitados. Tambien

El principal objetivo es que to-

se dividen en cuatro grupos prin-

incluyen los ciegos, sordos, para-
pligicos, aquellos que sufren pari-
lisis cerebral y otros problems.
Estas personas son elegibles para
cargos fuera del sistema de com-
petencia que no involucren peli-
gro para ellos y/o terceras perso-
Los restablecidos mentalmente
son aquellos que han sufrido en el
pasado problems tan agudos que
han necesitado tratamiento inten-
sive especial. Desafortunadamente,
aquellos que han recibido trata-
miento por enfermedades mentales
o emocionales, aunque se hayan re-
cuperado completamente, frecuen-
temente llevan sobre si un injusto
estigma. Estos individuos necesitan
emocionalmente ser considerados
para empleos, pero se les exige un
certificado expedido por la autori-
dad mndica competent indicando
que es apto para trabajar. Estas
personas generalmente tienen ca-
pacidad y un gran interns por el
trabajo. Como norma, no se re-
quieren procedimientos especiales
para colocar a estas personas ya
que ellas pueden trabajar como
cualquiera otra persona con las
mismas habilidades y capacidad in-
telectual. En consecuencia, deben
ser contratadas mediante el proce-
so competitive de empleo.
El retardo mental es un estado
cr6nico que dura toda la vida. No
se trata de una enfermedad ni la
total ausencia de habilidades o ap-
titudes, ni tampoco significa que la
persona debe ser recluida en una
instituci6n. Aunque la capacidad
de razonar de los retardados men-
tales es limitada, ellos piensan,
sienten y, excepci6n de los casos
agudos, pueden tomar decisions.
Para los impedidos fisica y men-
talmente, el trabajo puede ser el
mejor ingredient. El tener alguna
responsabilidad, algun trabajo que
hacer; ganar un salario; observer
la aceptaci6n que tienen por la for-
ma amistosa en que los tratan sus
compafieros de trabajo y ver el re-
sultado del trabajo bien realizado
y ser una parte active de la comu-
nidad, son algunos aspects que
