Vnl XIV. No. 24

Most PC Employees To Enjoy

Two 4-Day Holiday Weekends

Most employees of the Panama
Canal organization will be able to
enjoy two 4-day weekends this
holiday season.
In accordance with an Executive
Order issued by President Ford
which affects all Federal employ-
ees, Governor Parfitt has an-
nounced that all Canal employees
who are not needed to perform
essential services will be excused
from duty on December 26. For
pay and leave purposes, the day
will be treated as a holiday.
President Ford did not excuse
employees from duty on January 2,
and there is no indication that he
will do so.
However, in conformance with
efforts to reduce the Canal orga-
nization's financial burden when-
ever possible, Governor Parfitt has

Get OK for Bonfires
Christmas tree burnings can be
fun, but they can also be danger-
ous and should only be held with
adult supervision. Those groups in-
terested in having a bonfire should
contact the Grounds Maintenance
Branch (Pacific 52-3319, Atlantic
43-2373) for approval of the pro-
posed location for the tree burn.
The Grounds Branch will then
arrange for later removal of debris.
The location, date5 and time of
burning must then be reported to
the Police and Fire Divisions. Res-
idents are encouraged to limit the
number of tree burns in each com-
munity as much as possible.

announced that all employees not
required to perform essential serv-
ices will be placed on leave
January 2.
Employees with leave time avail-
able will be charged leave if they
are not required to work on Jan-
uary 2. Those with insufficient
leave balances may in most cases
borrow leave to cover the time.
As a result of these measures,
the SPILLWAY will not be pub-
lished on December 26 or Jan-
uary 2. The next issue will appear
on the second Friday in January.

Judge Blocks

Postal Hike
The Postal Division has an-
nounced that a planned increase
in rates which had been sched-
uled to go into effect on Decem-
ber 28, has been suspended as a
result of a court ruling which
blocked a similar increase in U.S.
postal rates.
According to reports received
here, Federal Judge John Sirica
has ruled that the U.S. Postal
Service may not raise postage rates
on December 28 as planned be-
cause the board of directors fol-
lowed improper procedure in
authorizing the Postmaster Gen-
eral to file for the new rates.
The judge's ruling was handed
down as a result of a lawsuit filed
by an association of third class
mail users, the report said.

4 Sites Selected
The Canal organization will
limit its organizational outdoor
lighted displays again this Christ-
mas as part of its successful and
continuing energy conservation
Four locations have been se-
lected for outdoor lighted Christ-
mas trees. They are Stevens Circle,
Gamboa-Santa Cruz Retail Store
roof, Rainbow City High School
and Cristobal High School. The
trees will be lighted each night
from December 21 through Jan-
uary 1.

For Xmas Lights
The widely separated sites were
selected to enable residents of
both sides of the Isthmus to enjoy
a token display of Christmas 'glitter
while conserving as much elec-
trical energy as possible.
All Isthmian residents are urged
to forego or sharply reduce out-
door lighted displays this season,
with the suggestion that they com-
pensate for any lighted displays by
equal or greater reduction of elec-
tricity inside their homes when
these lights are on.

Christmas Message

Mrs. Parfitt joins me in extending greetings and
best wishes for a very Merry Christmas and a bright
and happy New Year to the dedicated employees
of the Panama Canal and to all of our friends and
neighbors on the Isthmus.
As we join in the Season's activities, we realize
anew how acute is the need for peace and good will
among men. These are blessings that will come not
from merely wishing but rather from the steady
glow of compassion. These are the virtues we must
cherish and practice during and far beyond the
Nativity Season.
Gratitude for our blessings-not distress at our
adversities-should be the spirit of Christmas 1975.
To each of you then I send my wish that the True
Spirit of this Christmas Season may live among us;
that the blessings of peace may be ours-the peace
to build and grow, to live in harmony with each
other and to plan for the future with confidence.

Living proof that good ideas mean money in the bank
are Joseph F. Bradberry and Police Sgt. Timothy J.
Corrigan who hold their halves of a $700 suggestion
award. Bradberry, grounds supervisor, Southern Dis-
trict, mentioned to Corrigan his idea that money
could be saved if roll-over bars-the bars that prevent
tractors from tilting when they are driven on hills-
could be fabricated locally. Corrigan added that even
more money could be saved if the manufacture and




installment of the bars were made a part of the
Gamboa Penitentiary Rehabilitation Program. Their
joint plan was written up, submitted, evaluated and
adopted. The result: Panama Canal saves $15,000
the first year and Bradberry and Corrigan are each
$350 richer. From left are Richard K. Erbe, Director,
Supply and Community Service Bureau; Bradberry;
Corrigan; and F. A. Cotton, Deputy Director, Civil
Affairs Bureau.

What Do You Want To Be?

Experts Help Kids Choose Field

Curundu Junior High School
observed Career Awareness Week
last month with a program of 30
career encounter" seminars on
challenging occupations open to
today's young people.
Keeping in mind Alvin Toffier's
assertion in his book Future Shock


that commitment to one lifestyle
over another is a "super decision,"
organizers planned the program to
provide students an opportunity to
explore various careers and the
lifestyles they entail.
Students were free to choose
the seminar they would attend
from the many presented by
speakers recruited from the Pan-
ama Canal and military communi-
ties and the Republic of Panama.
Just choosing from among the
seminars presented was a hard

decision in itself. Don Goode of
the Panama Canal Graphic Branch
spoke on "Photography-A Career
That Takes You Many Places."
Maj. Michael P. Gordon of the
Canal Zone Police briefed the stu-
dents on law enforcement as a
career. "So You Like To Dig" was
the title of a talk on archeology
given by Dean Edwin C. Webster,
author of The Defense of Portobelo.
Speaking on "Higher Educa-
tion-A Step in the Right Direc-
tion" was Dr. Kenneth Lake,
Assistant Dean of Canal Zone Col-
lege. And Alwyn Sprague, an art
teacher at Balboa High School,
spoke about "Art-A Creative
Among the others who gave stu-
dents a closeup view of their
chosen occupations were Panama
Canal apprentices, SCN radio,
television and newspaper per-
somnel, members of the U.S. Army
and Air Force, and personnel from
Braniff Airlines.
Careers in fields of science and
medicine that were discussed in-
cluded entomology, marine bi-
ology, archeology, mirrsing, med-

ical careers

and veterinary medi-

Those in the fields of arts and
journalism were: music, art, jour-
nalism, theatrical arts, photography,
and radio and television.
The building trades, auto me-
chanics and the apprenticeship
program were represented, as were
education, law and law enforce-
Other occupational areas dis-
cussed included the maritime in-
dustries, aviation, hairstyling and
cosmetology, secretarial work, the
military, and airline steward and
Doctor, lawyer, teacher, nurse,
veterinarian, scientist, secretary,
beautician-all did their part to
help Curundu Junior High stu-
dents make the "super decision"
that will face them before long.

The Florida State University,
Canal Zone Branch, will offer a
course in "History of Women in
the U.S." (History 489r), during
the spring quarter, January 7
through March 2.
Dr. Joyce Peterson, a professor
at Florida International University
in Miami, Fla., is coming to the
Canal Zone especially to give this
8-week course.
The course will explore the
changing dimensions of women's
lives from the colonial era of U.S.
history to the present. It proposes
to examine the changing economic,
social and political position of
women as well as the develop-
ment of feminist movements and
Some topics to be dealt with
are: women's role in the family;
women as workers; changing at-
titudes toward sexuality; and the
effect of race and social class on
women's experiences.
Course requirements will in-
clude a term paper and assigned
readings as well as class discussion.

a 3-credit course, will be offered
on Tuesday and Fridays from

To speed up collections, res-
idents are asked to package holi-
day trash in a box or bag and tie

Employees Reminded of Rules

About Accepting Gifts, Favors

At this season, when giving and
receiving gifts is very much on
everyone's mind, it is perhaps ap-
propriate to remind Panama Canal
Company-Canal Zone Government
employees that the maintenance of
high standards of honesty, integrity
and conduct on the part of em-
ployees is essential to the proper
performance of their jobs.
Title 35 of the Code of Federal
Regulations, Chapter 1, Part 255,
Canal Zone Regulations, provides

Police Start Campaign

Against Jay Walking
The Canal Zone Police have
reported an increase in pedestrian
violations in the area of Stevens
Circle. Balboa Road and Stevens
Circle are marked with painted
crosswalks for use by pedestrians
for their safety. Many persons have
been observed crossing Balboa
Road from the new Balboa Serv-
ice Center to Stevens Circle by
"jay walking" through moving
traffic outside the marked cross-
walks. This practice is hazardous
to pedestrians and motorists who
have to brake suddenly to avoid
striking the violators. It is also a
violation of the vehicle regula-
tion, Section 167.412, CZAR.
The Canal Zone Police will
begin selective enforcement of
this particular violation on De-
cember 20, at which time traffic
citations will be issued.

el Gobernador Parfitt ha anunciado
que todos los empleados del Canal

El President Ford no excus6 a
los empleados de trabajar el 2 de

que lo haga.
Sin embargo, de acuerdo con
los esfuerzos que se hacen para
reducir los problems financieros
del Canal en lo que sea possible,
el Gobernador Parfitt ha anuncia-

Tarifa Postal
La Division de Correos ha anun-
ciado que un aumento en las tari-
fas postales que hubiera entrado
en vigor el 28 de diciembre ha
sido suspendido como resultado de
una orden judicial que impidi6 un
aumento similar en las tarifas
postales de los Estados Unidos.
De acuerdo con informes reci-
bidos, el Juez Federal John Sirica
ha decdido que el Servicio Postal
de los Estados Unidos no podra
aumentar sus tarifas el 28 de di-
ciembre como habia propuesto de-
bido a que la junta de directors
no procedi6 correctamente al auto-
rizar al Director de Correos para
que solicitara tal aumento.
El fallo del juez fue emitido a
raiz de una demand radicada por
una asociaci6n de usuarios de los
servicios postales de tercera clase.

durante los 12 meses del afio.
La excusa que Burns encontr6
para dejarse crecer la barba y que
fue causa de controversial en su
hogar, se le present cuando la
familiar regresaba al Istmo por ca-

Para calmar a su esposa, Burns
dijo que "s6lo la mantendria du-

Santa Claus".

promesa de hacer de Santa Claus.

Como buen Santa Claus, a
Burns no le importa el frio, pero

Acapulco, los pasajeros regresarin
a Los Angeles en avi6n.
Los cruceros del 20 de diciem-
bre, 7 de enero, 25 de enero, 12
de febrero y 19 de marzo, segui-
.rAn este itinerario. Pero los cruce-
ros del 30 de diciembre, 17 de

Probando que las buenas ideas significant dinero en el
banco, Joseph F. Bradberry y el Sargento de Policia
Timothy J. Corrigan, compartieron un premio de
$700 por una sugerencia. Bradberry, Supervisor de
Ornato y Aseo del Distrito Sur, le mencion6 a Corri-
gan su idea de que se podria ahorrar dinero si las
barras que evitan que el tractor pierda equilibrio
cuando se opera sobre pendientes, pudieran ser fabri-
cadas localmente. Corrigan afiadi6 que se podria
ahorrar ain mAs si la fabricaci6n y la instalaci6n de

las barras fuera parte del program de rehabilitaci6n
de la Penitenciaria de Gamboa. El plan conjunto fue
detallado y sometido a evaluaci6n y luego adoptado.
El resultado fue que la empresa del Canal aho-
rrard $15,000 el primer afio y Bradberry y Corrigan
recibieron cada uno $350. De izquierda a derecha
vemos a Richard K. Erbe, Director de la Direccion
de Abastos y Servicios Comunales; Bradberry, Corri-
gan, y F. A. Cotton, Asistente del Director de la
Direcci6n de Asuntos Civiles.

Experts Orientan a Estudiantes

El Primer Ciclo Secundario de
Curundl observ6 la Semana de
Adquirir Conciencia sobre la Ca-
rrera a Seguir, con un program
de 30 seminarios sobre "encuen-
tros de carrera" sobre ocupaciones
de gran atractivo que los j6venes
de hoy pueden seguir.

"'I. .

Manteniendo present el aserto
de Alvin Toffler que dice en su
libro "Future Shock" (Conmoci6n
Futura), que el emprender un
modo de vida en lugar de otro es
una "super decision", los organiza-
dores planearon el program para
proporcionar a los estudiantes una
oportunidad de explorer las dife-
rentes carreras y modos de vida
que les atraen.
A los estudiantes se les dio li-
bertad de asistir al seminario de
su preferencia entire los muchos
que fueron presentados por orado-
res procedentes de PanamA, el
Canal de PanamA y las comunida-
des militares.
El escoger el seminario que se

iba a tomar de por si fue decision
important. Don Goode, del Ramo
de Artes Graficas del Canal de
PanamA, habl6 sobre "Fotografia-
Una Carrera que lo Lleva a Usted
a Muchos Lugares". El Mayor
Michael P. Gordon, de la Policia
de la Zona del Canal, habl6 a los
estudiantes sobre el cumplimicnto
de la ley como una carrera. "dDe
Manera que a Usted le Gusta Ex-
cavar?" fue el titulo de la charla
sobre arqueologia que dict6 el
Dean Edwin C. Webster, author de
"La Defensa de Portobelo".
El Dr. Kenneth Lake, Vicerrec-
tor de la Universidad de la Zona
del Canal habl6 sobre "Educaci6n
Superior-Un Paso en la Debida
Direcci6n". Alwyn Sprague, maes-
tro de arte en la Secundaria de
Balboa, habl6 sobre "El Arte-
Carrera Creativa".
Entre los demAs que dieron a
los estudiantes un vistazo de cerca
a las ocupaciones que han esco-
gido, se encontraban aprendices
del Canal de PanamA, personal de
radio, television y prensa de SCN,
miembros del Ej6rcito y la Fuerza
Area de Estados Unidos y em-
pleados de Braniff International.
Las carreras que se discutieron
en el campo de las ciencias y la
medicine incluyeron la entomolo-

gia, biologia marina, arqueologia,
enfermeria, la carrera de la medi-
cina y la veterinaria.
En el campo de las artes y el
periodismo se trat6 sobre m6sica,
arte, periodismo, artes teatrales,
fotografia, radio y television.
Tambi6n estuvieron representa-
dos los oficios de construcci6n,
mecnica automotriz y el progra-
ma de aprendices, al igual que la
cducaci6n, el derecho y el cum-
plimiento de las leyes.
Otras Areas de ocupaci6n que se
discutieron incluyeron la indus-
tria maritima, la aviaci6n, estili-
zaci6n del peinado y cosmetologia,
trabajo de secretaria, la milicia y
sobrecargo de avi6n y aeromoza.
Doctors, abogados, maestros,
enfermeras, veterinarios, cientificos,
secretaries y experts en belleza,
todos contribuyeron a ayudar a los
estudiantes del Primer Ciclo de
Curund6 a tomar la "super deci-
si6n", cosa que tendrin que hacer
dentro de poco.

La Universidad del Estado de
Florida, Extensi6n de la Zona del
Canal, ofrecerA un curso titulado
"Historia de la Mujer en los
EE. UU." (Historia 489r), durante
el trimestre de primavera, que irA

La Dra. Joyce Peterson, pro-
fesora en la Universidad Inter-
nacional de Florida en Miami,
Florida, vendrA a la Zona del
Canal especialmente para dictar
este curso de 8 semanas.
Este curso explorara las di-
mensiones siempre cambiantes de
la vida de la mujer, desde la era
colonial de la Historia de los Es-
tados Unidos hasta el present. Su
prop6sito es examiner el papel
sujeto a cambios de la posici6n
econ6mica, political y social de la
mujer, al igual que la aparici6n
de los movimientos y organismos
feministas en el pais.
Algunos de los t6picos que se
tratarAn son: el papel de la mujer
en la familiar; la mujer como tra-
bajadora; el cambio de actitudes
con respect al sexo y el efecto
de las classes sociales y las razas
en las experiencias de la mujer.
Los requisitos del curso in-
cluirAn la confecci6n de un ensayo
y lectures que se obligarA a hacer
a los alumnos, al igual que
discusiones en clase.

Solicitan Cooperacion

Para Recoger Basura

Despues de Navidad
Para agilizar la recolecci6n de
basura despu6s de las Navidades,
se solicita a los residents que la
empaqueten en cajetas o bolsas y
la amarren firmemente antes de
colocarlas en los grandes tinacos
verdes que hay frente a sus resi-
dencias. Al empaquetar la basura
se facilitari su manejo por los tra-
bajadores y ayudara a evitar que
la derramen los animals en soltura.
Los padres de familiar deben
mantener a sus hijos alejados de
la basura despu6s que ha sido
pucsta fuera para su recolecci6n.
Los ninos son curiosos y les en-
canta buscar en la basura, sin
preocuparse la mayor parte de las
veces por el feo especticulo que
produce. Tambien tienden a no
preocuparse del peligro que para
ellos significant los vidrios rotos,
los clavos y las astillas de madera.
