Changes Won't Affect

Current Employees' Pay

Current employees of U.S. Gov-
ernment agencies in the Canal Zone
will suffer no financial loss from
recommended changes in regula-
tions dealing with wage base cut-
off points and tropical differential
as announced recently by the Canal
Zone Civilian Personnel Policy
Coordinating Board.
Meeting in Balboa Heights last
week, the Board reached unani-
mous agreement on these issues and
will recommend terms of the
agreement to the Secretary of the
Army. The Board's recommenda-
tions included principles that Gov.
H. R. Parfitt listed in a Memo-
randum of Understanding agreed
to with labor officials during the
March "sickout" by a number of
Canal Employees.
Under the terms of the Board
agreement, all employees currently

Check Fire Extinguishers
Persons who have recently pur-
chased fire extinguishers from the
Panama Canal storehouses are ad-
vised to have these inspected
periodically to be sure they are
fully charged. The extinguishers
may be taken to any fire station
where they will be checked at no

paid on the U.S. pay base will con-
tinue to be paid on that pay base
until they have a break in service.
But starting in July, persons em-
ployed at grade levels NM-4 and
NM-5 as well as those employed
into any security position at grade
level NM-5 or MG-9 or below will
be paid on the Canal Zone pay
Positions at NM-1 through NM-3
and MG-1 through MG-9, cur-
rently under the Canal Zone pay
base, will continue to lie so and
those presently on the U.S. wage
base will continue to be paid
under that system with no reduc-
tion of salary or loss of general or
in-step raises or increases which
they would receive through a pro-
motion to a higher grade.
The tropical differential in the
future will be restricted to persons
recruited or transferred from the
United States and other areas
under U.S. jurisdiction, not includ-
ing the Canal Zone. But each U.S.
citizen who receives the differen-
tial on the date of implementation
will continue to receive it, includ-
ing those who transfer from one
Federal agency in the Canal Zone
to another with no break in service.
Also protected by the recom-
nmendations would be presently
employed apprentices who might
have otherwise lost their oppor-
tunity to qualify for tropical dif-
The Board recommended that
the proposals be implemented in
July 1976 and added that the wage
base cutoff point should continue
to be reviewed.
Proposed changes in base rates
of pay and in eligibility for pay-
ment of tropical differential were
first announced by the Board in
February. At that time, it was
noted that action would be con-
sidered at the Board's meeting in
May. The Board is composed of

Civil Works Victor V. Veysey,
Chairman; Governor Parfitt; and

Preregistration Being Held

For Kindergarten Students

The Canal Zone Schools Divi-
sion announces that preregistration
of kindergarten students for the
1976-77 school year is now being
held at all Canal Zone elementary
Any child who will be 5 years
of age on or before December 1,
1976, and whose parent is spon-
sored by a U.S. Government agency
that accepts legal responsibility for
the child should be preregistered
at this time if his parents wislh
him to attend kindergarten in the
Canal Zone schools during the
coming school year.
Parents may register their child
on any weekday from 7:30 a.m. to
2:30 p.m. at any Canal Zone ele-
mentary school. At the time of
registration, they must show the
child's birth certificate. In addi-
tion, military and miscellaneous
Government personnel must pre-
sent a completed validated Regis-
tration Card, Form 1044, which

can be obtained from their unit's
Validating Officer. Panama Canal
Company and Canal Zone Govern-
ment personnel may obtain this
form from any Canal Zone school.
Additional health forms must be
completed at the time of registra-
Candidates for admission as tui-
tion students will be interviewed
at a later date and enrolled on a
space-available basis after classes
have been established.
School assignments for non-
tuition kindergarten students will
be published by August 1.
The cooperation of military, mis-
cellaneous Government, and Pan-
amla Canal personnel who plan to
enroll their children in kinder-
garten for the coming year is
urgently requested by school offi-
cials. Preregistration at this time
will enable them to make neces-
sary arrangements now for the
opening of school in August.

The Industrial Division is mo-
bilizing personnel and equipment,
conducting site investigations and
completing operations plans in
preparation for the big job of re-
moving a sunken Colombian cargo
ship from the entrance to the
Cristobal Harbor.
The 265-foot Tairona, laden with
a cargo of 32,500 bags of salt for
Tumaco, Colombia, struck the'east
breakwater early April 29 while
entering the Canal for a south-
bound transit and sank nearby in
the entrance. Marine Bureau float-
ing equipment went to the scene
and removed the 21 crewmen, one
of whom was hospitalized with a
leg injury.
At present, the Tairona is lying
on the bottom of the Canal en-
trance in 44 feet of water, with
only its superstructure extending
above the surface. The vessel is
not hampering Canal capacity at
the current level of ship traffic but
has limited the entrance channel
between the breakwaters to about
1,000 feet, slightly more than half
the normal width. In her present
position, the Tairona constitutes a
significant hazard to navigation
and, accordingly, shipping has been
restricted to one-way traffic to the
Other precautions also have been
taken. Shortly after the vessel sank,

Single Sessions at

Elementary Schools
Gov. Harold R. Parfitt has ap-
proved the continuation of the
single-session day schedule in the
U.S. elementary schools in the
Canal Zone.
His decision came after the re-
sults of a survey of teachers and
parents had been tabulated and
reported. The heavy response to
this survey by both teachers and
parents indicated that 86 percent
of the teachers and 89 percent of
the parents favored continuation of
the single-session day. At every
elementary school a majority of
teachers and parents favored the
single-session day.
This overwhelmingly favorable
response by teachers and parents
was an important factor in the
decision to continue the schedule
of a single-session day that had
been tried on an experimental basis
in the elementary schools this
school year.

buoys were placed to mark off the
safe channel through the eastern
half of the breakwater entrance.
And a notice to mariners was dis-
seminated to advise them of the
presence, size and location of the
Tairona and the details on the
buoys. Compulsory pilotage has
been imposed for all vessels of 90
feet in beam or greater. Smaller
ships are permitted to pass through
the entrance at the discretion of
the master after obtaining permis-
sion from the signal tower. All
ships were required to have pilots
aboard while passing between the
breakwaters for a brief period fol-
lowing the accident.
Dredging Division workmen went
to the scene to inspect for oil pol-
lution but found that the relatively
small quantity of petroleum that
escaped from the ship was being
carried out to sea by wave action
and widely dispersed.
A major consideration in the
decision to have the Panama Canal
raise the Tairona was the element
of time. The ship has a port list
and any increase in the list or
silting will make the salvage work
more difficult. Also, it would re-
quire considerable time before a
private salvage firm could begin
work on such a project. Mean-
while, the Tairona remains a hazard
to navigation.
The Industrial Division, with
support from the Dredging Divi-
sion and launch and tug assistance
from the Marine Bureau, plans to
move the hulk from the channel
in 30 working days.
A general methodology calls for
lifting the Tairona slightly above
the bottom and, while it is still
submerged, towing it to a pre-
designated location for disposal.
A decision regarding the disposi-
tion of the stricken vessel will be
made later.

Contact Police Prior

To Goins on
Canal Zone residents planning
vacations or other extended ab-
sences from their residences are
invited to take advantage of the
Canal Zone Police Vacation Quar-
ter Plan to protect their homes
while they are away.
The plan consists of periodic
checks of listed homes during night-
time and daylight hours by Police.
Persons expecting to leave the
Canal Zone who wish to have
their homes checked should pro-
vide the Police with the following
information: name, house number,
street and town; resident's depar-
ture and return dates; a friend's
name, telephone number and house
number, who has volunteered to
be responsible for the house and
will have a key; the names of
others authorized to be in the
house, such as the maid, relatives
or neighbors; and whether an auto-
matic timer will be used for lights.
Providing the above information
will assure that the residence is
checked by police personnel but

Details Available

To Job Applicants

When Nonselected
In reply to numerous recent in-
quiries, officials of the Personnel
Bureau inform employees that
when nonselected for a position for
which they have applied, they may
request, from the selecting official,
the following information:
1. Whether they were found
eligible on the basis of the mini-
mum qualification requirements for
the position;
2. Whether they were among
those in the group determined to
be "best qualified" by the appraisal
board or recommending official,
but not their specific rank within
such group;
3. Who was selected for promo-
tion; and
4. In what areas, if any, they
should improve in order to increase
the possibility of future promotion
to such a position.
Employees with further ques-
tions about this subject may call a
Personnel Staffing Specialist at 52-
7996 or 43-2118, or refer directly
to Chapter 335 of the Panama
Canal Personnel Manual.

to make the plan work, residents
should take further steps to make
the home appear to be occupied.
For example, residents should
cancel their subscriptions to news-
papers and other delivery type
services to prevent accumulation
which advertises an absence. All
residents should notify a neighbor
of intended vacations and ask him
to keep an eye on the house, re-
porting to police any strangers
loitering in the area.
Police also point out that the
use of an automatic timer for lights
is well worth the relatively low
purchase cost when compared with
the protection it affords. If a timer
is used, it should be set to turn
on low watt lights early in the
evening and off several hours later.
To the would-be burglar, this in-
dicates someone is in the house
and it may deter him from attempt-
ing a burglary.

SS Cristobal Wins

Safety Award for

3d Straight Year
The SS Cristobal of the Water
Transportation Division of the Pan-
ama Canal Company has been
recognized by the National Safety
Council for its exemplary perform-
ance in on-the-job safety.
In selecting the SS Cristobal for
a first place award in its Cargo-
Passenger Vessel-Government an-
nual on-the-job safety contest, the
council honors the lowest disabling
injury frequency rates achieved by
NSC member organizations during
1975. This is the third consecutive
year the SS Cristobal has earned
this honor.
The SS Cristobal qualified for its
safety award with a recorded rate
of 0 injuries per million man-
hours worked. This compares with
a 4.87 average rate for all com-
peting units in the cargo-passenger
vessel industry.
The safety citation will be pre-
sented to a representative of the
Panama Canal at the Annual Ma-
rine Safety Awards ceremony that
will take place in the United

Peoplee in the News

One of the Canal employees di-
rectly responsible for the organiza-
tion's high standing in the shipping
world is Camille Dennis Mazerolle,
who could well be called a hard-
hat ambassador.
As operations stevedore foreman
at Cristobal, Mazerolle is one of
the first persons to board vessels
stopping at the Canal. His amiable
manner' helps him to establish
cordial relations with the ship's
first officer soon after docking.
From the first officer he obtains all
information pertinent to the vessel's
cargo plans and the list of com-
modities. It is his responsibility to
determine the type of equipment
and manpower and the number of
work gangs to meet the needs of
the vessel. Depending upon the
type of cargo, Mazerolle provides
the men, the gear and other ad-
juncts for working the cargo, which
is stowed according to port of call;
the first to be unloaded would be
the last that was taken on board.
Cargoes run the full gamut,
from livestock such as horses for
Panama's racetrack, to containers,
explosives and heavy equipment,
such as bulldozers, cranes and
graders that may weigh as much
as 40 to 50 tons. The proper
stowage of cargo is important. It
must be placed aboard in a manner
that is safe for the goods, the crew
Sand the ship.
To load the northbound cargo
on the SS "Cristobal" every 2
weeks during the 3 or 4 days that
the vessel is berthed at Cristobal,
Mazerolle oversees seven gangs,
with 14 men to a gang, 32 pieces
of equipment and from 50 to 60
men working on the docks.
A native of Maine, Mazerolle
was born at Limestone, a small
town a few miles from the Ca-
nadian border. He attended school
there and after completing high
school, he joined the Marine Corps.
For a time he was stationed on
Adak, an island in the Aleutians
and while in the far north he
attended the University of Alaska.
Upon discharge in 1965, he
joined the Canal organization as
a locks guard and later was pro-


moted to supervisor guard force in
the Industrial Division. Next he
transferred to the Army where he
worked as an ammunition quality
control inspector and then joined
to the Canal's Terminals Division
where he has been in his present
position since 1971.
Participating in a number of
community projects, Mazerolle is
particularly active in sports, cur-
rently serving as president of the
Pony League. He has managed the
Farm League and Little League
and now is playing with the Gam-
bize team in the Atlantic Slow
Pitch League. He has served on
the board of the Gatun Civic
Council and managed the Mar-
garita Skating Rink and also lists
among his interests horses, boating
and bottle collecting.
He is married to the former
Linda Malone, who was reared in
the Canal Zone. They have two
sons, Robert, 16, and Michael, 14,
and live at Gatun.

ming speed, endurance, stroke pro-
ficiency and diving and will deter-
mine the best all round boy and
girl aquatic athlete. The events are
100-yard freestyle , 200-yard in-
dividual medley, 400-yard distance
swim, front dive and back dive.
Entrees must have participated in
a classic or in an interscholastic
competition and be students in the
Canal Zone schools.
Certificates and trophies in the
form of authentic railroad spikes
will be awarded to the champion
and runnerup boy and girl. The
"Old 299" scroll listing the names
of the Annual Pentathlon Cham-
pion will be placed on display at
the Camboa Swimming Pool.
Defending champions Karen
Beldus and Marc Loizeaux will be
on hand to defend their respective
titles. An added attraction this year
will be the awarding of the 1975-76
Canal Zone Age Group Swimming
Best Time Trophies.

Cosuggestors Marvin Goebel, second left, and Dan
Nellis, both Motor Transportation Division employees,
congratulate each other after receiving suggestion
awards and accompanying checks for $275 each. With
them at the presentation of the awards are, left to
right: Bill M. Lohr, Superintendent, Motor Transpor-
tation Division; Charles R. Clark, Transportation and
Terminals Director; and William D. Ritchic, Chief,

Southern District of the Motor Transportation Divi-
sion. Goebel is Pacific side safety officer for the
bureau and Nellis is foreman for the pier area repair
shop. They suggested that the division acquire a hose
coupling machine to be used to make hoses for
garbage packers and power steering hoses, resulting
in approximate annual savings of $10,000.

They each grabbed one. Keith's
was dead. The one Bobby held
looked alive so he started blowing
into its mouth and shaking it up a
bit. Soon the fieque opened its
eyes and started to breathe.
What was then about the size
of a small newborn kitten and
looked like a drowned rat, is today
a healthy 5-week-old pet that
wears a studded collar. It is be-
coming suspiciously familiar with
the furniture but at the first sign
of chewing on the upholstery, will
be exiled to the cage in the back-
Bobby Gibson, 17, and Keith
Fearon, 15, of Gamboa like to hunt
and they go as often as they can.
They hunt ducks, deer, wild pig
and fieques. They also like to fish.
But mostly they like to hunt for
good-eating quarry.
Last month, they were on the
banks of the Canal in the Gamboa
area, when they spotted a big, fat
fieque. Bobby aimed his 20-gage
shotgun and dropped the animal.
When they went to pick it up;
they noticed it was a gravid female,
big and about --, Lo give birth.
reelmg compassion for the unomaii
babies, they decided to perform a
caesarean on the dead mother
fieque. Neither one had a knife but
fortunately they found a piece of
broken glass nearby.
Immediately, they went to work
and cutting open the expectant
fieque, found two babies. Each
grabbed one. Keith's had the b1"k-
shot in its head. Bobby 1A1d the
live one, while Keith ,c the um-
bilical cord, pinch;. it tightly so
the tiny critter would not bleed to
death. Car e Y' they wrapped the
death. Caref- '
Sin Keith's blue western
wet .d'ief and took it home
aln with the hefty mother which
now in the Fearon's freezer.
Keeping warm and being fed a
few drops of milk, the little fieque
soon livened up. Its matted fur
dried to a soft brownish fluff and

Keith Fearon lolds the baby fieque while Bobby Gibson, left, bottle
feeds it.

it was hopping around in about an
hour. After Mrs. Fearon consulted
-...- - veterinarian at the Corozal
Animal Clinic on what to feed the
newly born fieque, they began to
bottle feed it an artnl ~ nther's
milk prepared by a commercial
firm especially for pet wild ani-
mals. The neque, which the boys
thinks is a "she," has thrived on
tlee bottles a day, plus portions
of carrots, cabbage, lettuce, fruit
and bits of bread. Tame as a
kitten, it follows members of the
family as they walk around the
house. And just to make sure that
it does not head for the nearby
woods, they put it on a leash when
they take it out of doors.
All is going fine right now with
the fieque but the entire Fearon
family is concerned over the fate
of their pet when it is full grown
and characteristics of its wildness

become evident. After the boy's
lifesaving efforts and the tender
loving care, they do not-want it
to end up in someone's stew pot.
They hope to find a place for it at
a zoo in the United States.
Meanwl.lo, Bobby and Keith
continue to hunt and say game will
be more plentiful in the rainy
season. Keith, who is very fond of
archery, plans to try hunting with
his bow and arrow.
The boys are active in sports
besides hunting. Bobby, a student
at Balboa High School, plays foot-
ball, basketball and participates in
track and has set his sights on an
athletic scholarship to college.
Keith, who attends Curundu Junior
High School, enjoys football, base-
ball and soccer. After he finishes
high school, he says that he would
like to go to a trade school and
become an automobile mechanic.

,Proyecta Vacaciones?

Avisele a la Policia

Los residents de la Zona del
Canal que proyectan ir de vaca-
ciones o ausentarse de sus residen-
cias por un period largo, pueden
aprovechar el plan que la Policia
de la Zona del Canal ha implan-
tado para la protecci6n de sus
residencias durante el tiempo que
van a estar ausentes.
El plan consiste en una inspec-
ci6n peri6dica de las residencias
cuyos ocupantes han solicitado vi-
gilancia policial, durante horas del
dia y de la noche.
Las personas que proyectan via-
iar y desean este tipo de servicio
deberin proporcionarle a la poli-
cia la siguiente informaci6n: nom-
bre, nimero de casa, nuimero de
tel6fono, nombre de la calle y
poblado, la fecha de partida y de
regreso del ocupante; el nombre
de una amistad que se hara cargo
voluntariamente de su residencia,
el nimero de su residencia y el
nimero de tel6fono. Dicha perso-
na deberA tener una Hlave de su
residencia. Tambi6n deben propor-
cionarle a la policia los nombres

Si no lo Escosen

El Aspirante Puede

Preguntar Por Que
Debido a la numerosa cantidad
de preguntas recibidas, los oficia-
les del Departamento de Personal
desean recorder a los empleados
que cuando no son seleccionados
para una posici6n para la cual han
hecho solicitud, pueden pedir al
official responsible de la selecci6n
la siguiente informaci6n:
1. Si fueron o no considerados
elegibles a base de las calificacio-
nes minimas requeridas para la po-
2. Si calificaron entire el grupo
considerado como "mejor califica-
do" por la junta de evaluaci6n u
official responsible de hacer las re-
comendaciones. (Su rango especi-
fico dentro del grupo no sera reve-
3. Quien fue seleccionado para
el ascenso, y
4. En qu6 Areas pueden supe-
rarse para aumentar la posibilidad
de obtener un ascenso a una posi-
ci6n similar en el future.
Aquellos empleados que tengan
alguna pregunta sobre este asunto
pueden Ilamar a un especialista en
t6cnicas de personal al 52-7996 6
43-2118 o leer el Capitulo 335 del
Manual de Personal de la Compa-
flia del Canal de PanamA.

de personas autorizadas a usar la
casa, tal como las empleadas, fa-
miliares o vecinos y anotar si hay
un conmutador automatic de lu-
ces funcionando.
Al proporcionar esta informa-
ci6n, el ocupante puede estar se-
guro de que su residencia sera vi-
gilada por personal de la policia,
pero para que el plan sea efectivo,
los ocupantes deben tomar las me-
didas necesarias para aparentar
que la residencia estA ocupada.
Por ejemplo, todas las suscrip-
clones a peri6dicos y cualquier otro
tipo de servicio de entrega deben
ser cancelados para evitar una
acumulaci6n que indique que el
ocupante estA ausente. El ocupan-
te tambi6n le debe notificar a un
vecino que va a estar ausente y
pedirle que le vigile la casa y que
avise a la policia si observa extra-
fios en el Area.
La policia tambien hace notar
que el beneficio derivado del con-
mutador de luces es considerable
en relaci6n a su costo. Si un con-
mutador de luces va a ser emplea-
do, debe ser calibrado para que
encienda luces de pocos vatios al
anochecer y las apague varias horas
mas tarde. Para el ladr6n esto seria
una indicaci6n de que hay alguien
en la casa y pueda que lo desani-
me del atentado de robo.

necesarias para efectuar la carga
o descarga del barco. De acuerdo
con el tipo de carga, Mazerolle
asigna a los trabajadores y equipo
para trabajar. La carga esti alma-
cenada en las bodegas del barco
segun su itinerario de escala, o sea,
la primera mercancia descargada
es la illtima en ser cargada.
La variedad de carga abordo de
los barcos es extensa: ganado, ca-
ballos de carrera para el hip6dro-
mo de PanamA, contenedores, ex-
plosivos y equipo pesado, como"
niveladoras, o gr6as que pesan
hasta 40 a 50 toneladas. La carga

A un Neque con 'Cesarea

Cada cual agarr6 uno. El de
Keith estaba muerto. El que Bobby
sostenia parecia estar vivo, asi que
comenz6 a soplarle aire en la boca
y a sacudirlo un poco. El fieque
abri6 los ojos y comenz6 a respirar.
Lo que tenia el tamafio de un
gatito reci6n nacido en aquel en-
tonces y parecia un rat6n ahogado,
hoy es un animal domesticado de
5 semanas que usa un collar con
piedras de fantasia. Ha comenzado
a interesarse en los muebles, pero
al primer intent de rumiarse el
tapiz, serA exiliado a una jaula en
el patio.
A Bobby Gibson, de 17 afios y a
Keith Fearon de 15, de Gamboa,
les gusta cazar y lo hacen con la
mayor frecuencia possible. Cazan
patos, venados, puercos silvestres
y fieques. Tambi6n les gusta la
pesca. Pero mAs que todo, les gus-
ta cazar press buenas para comer.
El mes pasado estaban a la orilla
del Canal en el Area de Gamboa
cuando vieron un fieque grande y
gordo. Bobby le apunt6 su esco-
peta calibre 20 y dio en el blanco.
Cuando lo fueron a recoger nota-
ron que era una hembra embara-
zada y a punto de dar a luz. Sin-
tiendo compnasi6n por los pequefios
dentro de la madre, decidieron ha-
cerle una cesarea a la madre muer-
ta. Ninguno de los dos tenia una
cuchilla, pero afortunadamente en-
contraron un pedazo de vidrio.
Inmediatamente se aplicaron y
abrieron a la madre, encontrandole
en el vientre dos pequefos fieques.
Cada muchacho cogi6 uno. El que
sostenia Keith tenia una herida de
perdig6n en la cabeza. Bobby sos-
tuvo al que ain quedaba con vida,
mientras que Keith le cortaba el
cord6n umbilical, oprimiendolo
para que no se desangrara. Con
cuidado, lo envolvieron en el pa-
fiuelo de Keith y se lo Ilevaron
para la casa. La madre esti en el
congelador de los Fearons.
DAndole calor y alimentandolo
con gotitas de leche, el pequefio
fieque revivi6. Su piel de color
achocolatado se torn6 en una lana

Keith Fearon sostiene al pequefio fieque mientras que Bobby Gibson,
izquierda, lo alimenta con una mamadera.

suave y una hora despu6s de na-
cido ya estaba saltando por toda
la casa. La Sra. Fearon consult
con un veterinario de la Clinica
de Animales de Corozal sobre qu6
tipo de comida debia darle y co-
menzaron a alimentarlo con una
